Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered edition of this album from the Southern Soul legend. In 1977, Eddie signed with Capricorn Records and cut this critically-acclaimed album featuring the cream of his fellow Muscle Shoals musicians, and delivering a repertoire of Southern Soul performances in a style that did credit to his prime mentor, Otis Redding. Eddie Hinton's name has been one to drop in recent years as the popularity of Southern Soul has grown and grown. He featured in the studio credits of countless hit records cut in Muscle Shoals, Alabama between 1967 and 1971, playing lead guitar in the rhythm section. He was on sessions for albums by Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Solomon Burke, Joe Tex and many others including Percy Sledge, for whom Eddie wrote the Top 40 hit 'Cover Me'. 10 tracks. Shout.

"I have been a fan of Eddie Hinton since 1978. It is such a shame to know most people have never heard of him. Of course, some will go "that name sounds familiar", but his voice will send back images of The Big "O"[Otis Redding]. This white man hits soul notes that will bring tears to your eyes. YOU GOT ME SINGING is truly a happy R&B rendition that shows off the influence that Otis had on this man. What a Gift! You are missed - but your songs live on in the heart of this musician!"

"This is only my second purchase of an Eddie Hinton cd, and everything about this one and the previous purchase (Dear Y'all) is making me anxious to do all that is possible to get my hands on all of his cds. What's not to love? The man had a voice so full of pain and heartbreak and downright soul-sickness that you have to be awestruck when he turns right around and makes the joyful noise that is 'Shout Bamalama.' And I had wondered whether Hinton, who was a fine songwriter as well as singer and guitarist, might have written anything with Dan Penn. Well, here's 'Shoot the Moon,' and it's a pretty fine argument for wishing the two had written many more songs together. (And what I wouldn't give to find a Hinton/Oldham composition!) I so envy those of you who got to witness Eddie Hinton in concert or in the studio. Maybe y'all think you know how lucky you were. I sure hope you do!"
This is THE Eddie Hinton album

"Eddie Hinton, oft referred to as the "white Otis Redding", was one of the session musicians who made Muscle Shoals one of the premier recording studios in the 1960s and 1970s, especially for soul music. On his own, Eddie was a mixed bag, suffering from a variety of spiritual maladies that made his live performances and studio recordings quite variable in quality. On this album, you get Eddie at his absolute best. His singing is fantastic as is his guitar work; he's on his home turf at Muscle Shoals, backed by many of his session buddies; the digital remastering by Fred Meyer (don't have a clue as to who he is but I will not forget him) is virtually flawless and beautifully done. Yes, this album is OOP and not cheap but it is THE Eddie Hinton album to own. I consider it to be in the top 20 soul albums of all time."
