VICKY CLAY - OH IT'S ALRIGHT





The lyrics of this song turned out to be quite autobiographical, as this is seemingly the only release from Vicky Clay.

There was no shortage of clear voiced ladies of soul in 1960's Chicago, and sadly Vicky got lost in the shuffle. However, at1:15 in, this groovy mixture of Chi-town soul and Tin Pan Alley SOARS when Vicky holds on and stretches out her "It's alright" vocal line, which was so good she had to repeat again at 2:13 to take the song home. This is one of those tracks that I find may take a while to grow on you, as the brilliance is more subtle. Simply a great feeling track!

from 1966...

Grow'd on me as soon as I played it. Make a good pick for a Life insurance commercial, hopefully that never happens.
