James Carr makes the kind of songs that make you remember the first time you heard them - tough, and at the same time, tender, lingering songs like "The Dark End Of The Street," in which you can hear the man singing as both halves of his heart search for hope, redemption, or a companion. These have a quicker tempo than that song, with livelier bass lines, but still have the same underlying power.
