Editorial Reviews
Eddie Hinton, dubbed in his prime "the white Otis Redding," and for good reason: He may not have possessed the power of the King of Soul, but his frayed vocals were rife with a fervor that owed everything to Otis. Listen to the one-two punch of "Shout Bamalama" and "Get Off in It" for a sense of Hinton's expressive range. On the former, Hinton sounds like a southern frat boy with a hot foot--and that's a compliment. "Get Off in It" is a shimmering ballad in which the Dixie eccentric waxes. In his time, Hinton was considered one of the best of the white soul singers. Very Extremely Dangerous makes the case for dropping the racial qualifier. Released in 1978 when many of the towering figures Hinton backed as a session player were in retreat, it now stands as one of the last great classic soul records. --Steven Stolder (amazon)

What a great share! Eddie Hinton and Delaney Bramlett were two KINGS at Muscle Shoals. Eddie is no longer with us, but he left behind some amazing Southern Fried funky soul. Thanks!
