Freddie's Brother

Some Saturday Night Soul for you, courtesy of Eric Mercury. Eric hailed from Toronto but started drifting slowly southwards in the late 1960s, finally fetching up in Memphis where he released a few records on Stax in the early 1970s. He gave up recording in the mid-1970s and moved into writing and producing, working with Roberta Flack among others. Whether he is still with us, I couldn't tell you.

Both of today's tracks are from his 1969 album, the magnificently titled "Electric Black Man".
