Playlist 23.01.12

Stuart Bailie | 14:01 UK time, Tuesday, 24 January 2012

I'm very fond of the music of Eddie Hinton. He sang bruising soul tunes in the southern tradition and was intensely fond of Otis Redding. A lot of his recordings have that same pleading intensity and one of these, 'Everybody Need Love' was beautifully revived by the Drive By Truckers. He was also a session guitarist at the Muscle Shoals studio, playing with the legends during the greatest of times.
His recorded history is patchy, and according to some accounts, Eddie partied hard until his death at the age of 51. But the music won't go quietly and this programme's choice, 'Concept World', was one of the stand-outs from the 'Very Extremely Dangerous' debut. The horn section soars, the whistling is perfect and Mr Hinton gives it unquenchable feeling.
