I Want My Baby!

The Acklin Brothers - I Want My Baby

Some time ago I featured the humorous ditty "Junior's Angle" by the Acklin Brothers, which was released on the De'Voice label, an early effort by future Stax prexy Al Bell. Today's feature is the flip of that tune. The ballad "I Want My Baby" is a doo-wop-styled number that features ensemble vocals by the group and sparse, atmospheric backing by the band, led by some nice guitar work.

That guitar work was done by my uncle, Bill Dunham, who was hired while working soul clubs near his home of Little Rock, Arkansas. I spoke with him about this earlier today after reading your blog, and was thrilled to let him know about your kind words!
