POOKIE HUDSON - JEALOUS HEART


It's a real shame that Spaniels lead singer James "Pookie' Hudson didn't record more solo singles during the 60's. His sweet voice was perfect for the soul sounds of the day, as heard here and on the absolutely glorious "This Gets To Me" (a past 45 of the day).

"Jealous Heart" itself is also a model for classic songwriting; the strong structure, melody and lyrics yield the type of song that can be part of ANY genre depending on the arrangement.

from 1963...

That's a different Double L label design than you usually see. Interesting that it mentions "Prigan" as well [another label].

Both Double L and Prigan refer back to the owners names....one of whom was Lloyd Price. But you probably knew that, didn't you?
