William Bell -- Get It While It's Hot

From the Stax-Volt Complete Soul Singles Vol. 3: 1972 -1975 (BoxSet) is today's pick. William Bell has played a major role in creating the Stax-Volt sound as a singer as well as songwriter. In the later 50's, before he began his work with Stax in 1961, he was a member of the Del Rios.
His warm and smooth tenor voice turned any song into a special delivery, and his son writing skills show, for example, in Chuck Jackson's hit Any Day Now which was co-written by William Bell. Any Day Now was issued by William first, though, after the success of his initial release You Don't Miss Your Water.
If you don't own any William Bell albums, I encourage you to check out his material.
