James Carr is right up there with the best of the 60s, Otis Redding, Arthur Conley, Joe Tex, and others but he never made it as big as them because of personal troubles and bad planning on the part of his label and management. Fortunately, his genius has been kept alive by record collectors everywhere for whom this rare gem is a holy grail! The album features tunes that sum up the best of the south in the 60s all sung by James with his unbelievably heartbreaking voice. Much more obscure than his first album, ‘A Man Needs a Woman’, for my money, is every bit the equal of its predecessor. Not least, naturally, since it includes The Dark End of the Street and You Got My Mind Messed Up once more, two all-time legendary waxings that I’ll never tire off. But the LP’s original material isn’t far behind at all.
Along with his other original Goldwax LP, You Got My Mind Messed Up, James Carr's Man Needs a Woman represents one of the high watermarks of Southern soul music. And beyond his tonal resemblance to Otis Redding, Carr was as distinct a voice as the genre ever produced. Compilations on both Kent (Complete Goldwax Singles) and Razor & Tie (The Essential James Carr) are certainly good places to start, but this LP might be even a better introductory title, especially considering the likelihood one will want to obtain all of Carr's prime late-'60s.
A man needs a woman Lyrics. When I was the age of three My dear mother had a Little talk with me. She said a woman Can be a good little thing But, son, she mean a Whole world to men. If I hadn't loved Your daddy this way He wouldn't be the Big man he is today. Don't you know A man needs a woman A man got to have a woman To carry on (to carry on) To carry on. Just like the fish needs the ocean Just like rough hand need a little lotion Like the windows needs pane Like the highway needs two lane
