Soldier Of Love !




Born May 10, 1940, in Florence, AL, Arthur Alexander was the son of a bottleneck blues guitarist who performed each Saturday night in the blues joints scattered throughout the region. Despite having his compositions covered by both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in the sixties, Arthur Alexander never quite caught the break that would have put him over the top.
That's the soul fan's misfortune too as Arthur lingered in obscurity until his untimely passing.
That’s all.

I checked with a contact down in beautiful Florence, Alabama about Alexander. He claims FAME studios would never have got off the ground without Alexander. After a long retirement Alexander played at the opening of the Alabama music hall of fame. Sounds like he was amazing. Unfortunately he died about a year later. Posthumously, he was elected to his home state's music hall of fame.
Thanks for digging the fucker up.
