O.V. Wright is the best soul singer of all time. Better than Otis Redding, just not as well known. Listen to almost any O.V. Wright song and then put Otis on and you’ll probably want to switch back. Case and point is ‘Eight Men – Four Women’ off the 1971 classic, A Nickel and A Nail and Ace of Spades. If you don’t get goosebumps from this song then I feel bad for you. O.V. Wright’s vocals are delivered with such grueling sincerity that it’s hard not to feel a heavy weight come over you. There is so much emotion pouring out of Wright in every song he’s recorded to tape. It’s what sets him apart and makes the hair stand on the back of your neck stand. See for yourself below.
