Currently in Progress: Patches by Clarence Carter

0 Comments 08 October 2013

On a recent flight I watched a new film about the music from Muscle Shoals Alabama.

Just amazing how they shaped the music and culture of our lifetime.  Of all the songs that stuck was one I had never heard. Patches by Clarence Carter who I now know was originally recorded by Chairmen of the Board.  Just a strong song. Enjoy.


T.W. Snicket

From Wiki:
“Patches”, (first recorded by Chairmen of the Board), was a UK number 2 and a U.S. number 4 in 1970, and was nominated for a Grammy in 1972. This disc sold over one million copies, and received a gold disc awarded by the R.I.A.A. in September 1970, just two months after its release. It was Carter’s third million seller.
