You don't need no ticket....

It's been a good long while since I offered up any Stacy Lane. I have no solid info on the man, but everything points to him being a Memphis based artist.

Hard to say if this record is scarcer than his "African Twist/I'm Out To Win You Over", but for my part I could've picked up five copies of that 45 while hunting up a single copy of this one.

Nice slow groove, a crawling piano line....and a truly whacked out guitar solo that gets my attention every time. Suits me so well I'm tempted to use it as the theme song for a radio show I've been offered. Only problem is the mention of "soulsville" in the lyrics.

Hope ya'll enjoy....


  1. I'll bet that co-writer credit for T. Wommack is actually the great Memphis guitarist Travis Wammack, of "Scratchy" fame. The solo certainly sounds like him. -- Jon

  2. are indeed correct. Lane says, "Ok Travis" right before the solo.

  3. So he does! I missed that the first time. -- Jon

  4. Good funky little tune. Thank you!
    Ana, It would be great to hear a radio show hosted by you. If you accept the offer I hope it will be streamed on line.
