“A Man Needs A Woman” by James Carr - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1968Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Hangs on to “new album” status although 2 tracks are repeated from last years debut LP (hence the part “comp” tag), “The Dark End Of The Street” and “You’ve Got My Mind Messed Up”. Unfortunately, Carr was unprepared for success and slipped into mental illness. It became more and more difficult for him to complete a recording session, and that, coupled with the dissolution of Goldwax in 1969, effectively ended his career in the charts, although he has performed occasionally even recording two more albums in the 1990s.
