Product details

INCLUDES 14 BONUS TRACKS

Alexander made a handful of single records that inspired a generation of artists. His 1962 Top 40 hit, “You Better Move On”, helped kick-start the famed Muscle Shoals music scene. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder and numerous other giants covered his unique country-tinged story-songs, and many took his unfettered brooding vocal style as a blueprint for their own. This quintessential release includes Alexander's magnificent debut LP, You Better Move On, originally released in 1962 by the Dot label. It's one of the all-time cornerstones of R&B and early soul, and shows what a formidable force Arthur was. This remastered collector's edition also contains 14 bonus tracks from the same period, including the hard-to-find “The Girl That Radiates That Charm”, the outstanding “Go Home Girl”, and the self-penned “Anna (Go to Him)”, which became a Top 10 R&B smash and was later covered by The Beatles. These recordings are the building blocks of Arthur Alexander's legendary musical legacy. It is enduring music and the epitome of southern soul.
