It's been far too long since I've featured a Garnet Mimms record on this site, and it's certainly not due to a lack of love for this phenomenal singer. Garnet (along with top notch producers/arrangers Bert Berns and/or Jerry Ragovoy) cut to wax some of the greatest east coast soul of all time. Garnet's voice is full of majesty and the way the man could phrase a lyric is as good as it gets.

"Look Away" is another Bert Berns co-composition in which he explores the Latin rhythms that were the hallmark of so many of his classics, going back to Solomon Burke's "Cry To Me" in '62.

from 1964...
