Price: $14.00

Arthur Alexander was one of the catalytic figures in the birth of Muscle Shoals as a musical hotbed, "You Better Move On" being the first national hit recorded at Rick Hall's Fame Studios, in late 1961. A profound influence on the early 1960s Beat Boom/British Invasion, Alexander's songs have been recorded by artists like The Beatles (who recorded three of his songs), The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ike & Tina Turner, Dusty Springfield, Ry Cooder & many more. This compilation includes all his early recordings for the Dot label in 1961-1962, plus his rare debut single "Sally Sue Brown"/"The Girl That Radiates That Charm" that has escaped digital reissue up till now.  Alexander died unexpectedly in 1993 on the verge of a major comeback, at the age of just 53, which led to a massive revival of interest in his early recordings..........
