TONY OWENS - CONFESSIN' A FEELING
Releasing only a scant 12 singles in a 24 year period, this New Orleans singer made a far deeper mark on the city's soul scene than his small discography would otherwise indicate. Tony has been performing in NOLA clubs since the '60's, and after a hiatus he is back on stage (I saw him @ The Ponderosa Stomp a few years back, and he sounded fantastic).
This record did make the national r&b charts, but it also seems to be one of those records that regionally (NOLA and the south) did far better than the actual chart position. I featured Sly, Slick & Wicked's version of thios song here a few years back, and I have to say I love both version equally. Simply an incredible song!
