James Carr - That's What I Want To Know - Goldwax

60s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, March 31, 2011 10:44:53

Most known for his seminal "The Dark End Of The Street", James Carr is regarded by many as one of the most talented soul singers of all time. Born in 1942, Carr like so many of his peers began singing in church and gospel groups. Together with friend and former band mate Roosevelt Jamison he started searching for an entrance into a secular recording career in the early 1960s, and was eventually signed to Quinton M Claunch and Rudolph 'Doc' Russell's newly founded Goldwax label in '63 after another Memphis label, Stax, had turned him down. At Goldwax Carr recorded the bulk of his material including this B-side to the classic "You Got My Mind Messed Up" in 1966.
