O.V. Wright : God Blessed Our Love~When a Man Loves a Woman~That's How Strong My Love Is
In 1977 soul singer O.V. Wright released Into Something (Can't Shake Loose), produced by Hi Records's Willie Mitchell. This is some seriously Southern fried soul. If you've seen the name and wondered where to start, here's the album you want to add to your collection. Among the cuts is a thirteen minute Side Two medley of "God Blessed Our Love" ( which I had first heard on Al Green Explores Your Mind) + Percy Sledge's "When A Man Loves a Woman" + a re-visit to Wright's modest 1964 hit "That's How Strong My Love Is".
