Jimmy "Okera" Hightower -- "I Can't Have You"

 

Jimmy Hightower is yet another artist whose talent has been overlooked  by the record industry. Therefore, we’re only able to enjoy a handful recordings of his warm tenor. Nowadays, his records are traded as collectors’ items with a big price tag.
The Detroit native started out singing with a group named Combinations. They recorded for various small record labels. He left the group and recorded a few 45′s between 1975 and 1989.
Today’s track is his first solo single, recorded in 1975 for the Westbound label.
