Legendary ivory-tickler SPOONER OLDHAM is synonymous with the Muscle Shoals sound. The southern soul pioneer famously backed the likes of Etta James, Jimmy Hughes, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, and many more, but his lone solo album, Pot Luck, finds Spooner in a rare role: front and center. Oldham moved west in the late ‘60s when the patronage of bands like The Stones and The Flying Burrito Brothers made southern soul the in-demand sound. He joined the house band at Hollywood’s Producer’s Workshop and was soon playing for The Lettermen and Liberace. While recording the latter, it was suggested that Oldham make his own album. Pot Luck is very much a record of two halves; Side A is an amalgamation of rarities penned with the likes of DAN PENN and FREDDY WELLERr, while the B-side is a conceptual, seven-song medley covering some of the biggest hits Oldham played on, including "Cry Like A Baby,” "Respect," and gospel standard "Will The Circle Be Unbroken.” The sessions were largely unplanned. “We just went in,” says collaborator EMORY GORDY. “That’s the best way Spooner works.” In 1972, the album was released and quickly sank. Before long, the Producer’s Workshop disbanded, too. Oldham carried on regardless, performing with The Everly Brothers, Bobby Womack, Gene Clark, Neil Young and–well, you name it. LP housed in expanded deluxe gatefold jackets.
