"That's How Strong My Love Is"

OK, back to the 60's: Memphis-based sickle-cell disease researcher and gospel composer Roosevelt Jamison penned this soulful love ballad in '64. First recorded by O.V. Wright. Otis Redding's version peaked at #74 in '65 and it was also covered by The Rolling Stones that same year. In exchange, Redding covered The Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction".

Yesterday's answer: "Lonely Teardrops" by Jackie Wilson. Was he cool or what? AND he COULD dance - SMOOTH!!!
