 And a lot like Johnny Hartmann.

 This one was issued in Australia on Festival and was a minor hit here with quite a bit of airplay. His voice was a little like Brook Benton I thought, or Joe Henderson of "Snap Your Fingers".

 Notice how, at this early point, A&M is shown on the label as "A. and M."

 This is brilliant! I love both sides.

 George McCurn was a former gospel singer - if I remember rightly he'd been
a member of the Soul Stirrers when they were recording for Andex which is probably how he got to know Herb Alpert who was producing for Keen / Andex
at the time.

 Although I never heard it on the radio this wasn't entirely ignored on its release in 1963.Don Nichol who reviewed singles in Disc used a five star rating system (poor to excellent) and a Don Nichol Tip (DNT) award for records he thought were better than excellent.These were usually records he liked rather than ones he thought would be hits.Country Boy was his special tip for that week.I liked the sound of it from his description although I differ with his comparison of McCurn with Jim Reeves.I think he was more like Johnny Hartmann.I would certainly rate it as one of the top five singles from the sixties.

 And nice to see A&M on London too.

 One of my all-time favourite London records.
