Got myself a new personality...

There isn't much known about Stacy Lane except that he's probably from Memphis and recorded four singles. One on the obscure Memphis label, Bar....two on Excello....and another, rather bizarrely, issued on the Playboy label [yes, that Playboy].

I haven't heard the single on Bar but the sides on Playboy are quite different from those on Excello. Seems the man was a chameleon of sorts. On Excello he sounds an awful lot like Wilson Pickett, on Playboy he's doing his best to sound like Al Green. Neither imitation is done so badly as to be irritating.

Wish I knew more, but I don't.

Hope ya enjoy the's from 1968.
