Larry O'Williams - That's My Girl
As I've often told people, when I go to "Rhythm & Booze" it's like going to church and school - "church" in the sense that it's very uplifting and "school" in the sense that Tim and the other DJs always expose me to great soul records I'd never heard of. Kurt Wood, with whom I shared DJ duties on St. Patrick's Day, exposed me to this curiosity from the folk-oriented Arhoolie label. "Soul? On ARHOOLIE?!?" I pondered in amazement. But 'tis true!
I haven't been able to find anything out about Larry O'Williams, but "That's My Girl" appears to be his only 45 for the company. Over a nice rhythm section O'Williams really sells the song with his somewhat unusual voice.
