Roy Abernathy -- Come On And Love Me

I think I am getting deeper and deeper into the Deep Soul genre. Just can't help it. It's just the right music that keeps you from becoming gloomy while you get all nostalgic ... And that ol' guitar is warming my heart through and through.

According to the one and only authority in all things Deep Soul, Sir Shambling, Roy Abernathy recorded only two  45's for the Paradox label. This one b/w "Love Is A Cheating Game" in 1971 and "Lonely Room" b/w "If You Leave Me" a year or two later.

Paradox label co-founder, Bill Coffield "was a saxophonist who had played with Jimmy Johnson in the 50s as well as featuring on several Quin Ivy sessions including Percy Sledge’s “When A Man Loves A Woman.” Together with Jim Thomas, he recorded a handful of soul titles on the label that was specializing in Pop and Country music.
