ROCKIE CHARLES BORN FOR YOU Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
A classic Orleans Record’;s Release from the late great Rockie Charles. A Louisiana Country Soul Masterpiece, first time available on vinyl.

Louisiana Native Rockie Charles emerges from the fen-sucked fog of obscurity on ‘;Born for You.’; A singer/songwriter/guitarist known as ‘;The President of Soul,’; he backed soul legends like Little Johnny Taylor, Percy Sledge, O.V. Wright and Otis Redding in the 1960s when he was based in Nashville. This unpretentious album of original Southern soul owes more to the music of Al Green and O.V. Wright then to blues or even ‘;Nawlins R&B’;. The five ballads suggest the influence of Percy Sledge. His sparse, clean guitar work reminds me of Stax-era Steve Cropper as it fits in perfectly with the organ and horns.”; - Thomas J. Cullen
