Soul-Blues Saturday: More ICA Soul!

Vernon Garrett - I'm at the Crossroad (Pt. 1)

I discussed Al Bell and his first post-Stax venture, ICA, in the last "Soul-Blues Saturday" post. Vernon Garrett is no stranger to serious soul fans, with great records for Kent/Modern such as "Shine It On" being long-time favorites. "I'm at the Crossroad," a 1977 ICA single, comes pretty close to Tyrone Davis territory: "Crossroad" bears a resemblance to "Turning Point," both lyrically and musically.
