Delta Dawn - Clifford Curry

I never would have guessed "Delta Dawn" could be sung with such deep southern soul until I heard this obscure cover from Clifford Curry. It's got some great funky blues breaks which work surprisingly well. Also, purely for aesthetic reasons, I should highlight that this 1972 pressing was released on gorgeous, ruby red, translucent vinyl. Enjoy it, monoside style.

Alex Harvey's 1971 "Delta Dawn" is the one that remains near and dear to my heart.

Helen "Hear Me Roar" Reddy's version of the country classic. Alex Harvey, the songwriter responsible for penning "Delta Dawn", opened up for Helen Reddy in the seventies.
