B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 22 MAY 2010


There's not a whole lot of information available of Memphis soul singer Prince Conley. However, in 1961, The Prince cut this gem, "I'm Going Home," released by Satellite Records (pre-Stax) , featuring a young Steve Cropper on guitar. This seems to one of the sole documents of Conley's great voice. Check it out in the (first) box set, The Complete Stax/Volt Singles: 1959-1968.
