by Charlie Rich (1960)
Dubbed “The Silver Fox”, Charlie Rich was a pop country super star in the seventies, but it might be his most Elvis like hit, Lonely Weekends that he’s most remembered for. At least it’s the song that I like the most.
Even if his name is not the most recognizable of the era and genre, his work not only as a singer but a songwriter (he wrote for Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee) is considered by many to be the best to come out of Sun Studios.
But what do you think?
