PERCY MAYFIELD - STRANGER IN MY OWN HOMETOWN


On this Thanksgiving day, among many other things, I am thankful for music and the fact that so many brilliant artists have bared their souls and performed music from their heart. Music is the greatest healing force...

This Percy Mayfield track combines an ultra-swinging background with Percy's deep confessional lyrics and massively soulful voice. You better believe that I'm thankful for it.

from 1964...

Elvis covered this one! It was included on "Reconsider Baby," a great 1985 compilation of Elvis doing blues tunes.
