    It is albums like this that inclined me to write about ‘alternative’ albums.

    I knew that there must have been limitless rare gems that I never heard, but I must admit that finding them was as rare as a hen’s tooth. “Memphis Unlimited” is remarkable from any angle, and I’d be proud if I happen to be the source that first exposed someone to the beautiful genius of O.V. Wright’s best album.

    Featured tracks include:

    I’ve Been Searching

    Nothing Comes to a Sleeper

    The Only Thing that Saved Me

    He’s My Son Just the Same

    You Must Believe in Yourself

    Lost in the Shuffle

    I’d Rather Be Blind (Crippled and Crazy)

    Please Forgive Me

    Are You Going Where I’m Coming From?
