Clydie King - The Thrill Is Gone
There's a certain moment in a certain Rolling Stones song where I've always thought the background singer's voice sounded amazing, and I've wondered who that singer was. For a while I actually believed it might be Ronald Dyson. Yet Wikipedia indicates it was either Tami Lynn, Dr. John, Clydie King, Vanetta Field, Shirley Goodman, or Joe Green. After listening to some clips of those singers I concluded that the golden pipes in question probably belong to Vanetta Field, but along the way I heard the Clydie King song posted above, which I like, and at the end Clydie really kills the falsetto in a phrase which incidentally reminds me of Jimmy's vocals at 4:13 in this, the horn-laden outro jam of which is remarkably similar to that of Loving Cup, as it happens.
