Hermon Hitson -- "Too Much For The Human Heart"

According tohermonhitson.com, "Hermon Hitson has played with some of the biggest names in music history such as Bobby Womack, Wilson Pickett, Major Lance, Jackie Wilson, The Drifters, The Shirelles, Joe Tex, The Midnighters and others."

I had no clue Hermon Hitson was an accomplished guitarist and stumbled across his story while researching him in connection with the beautiful song I found by him.  Apparently, he recorded an entire album which was credited to Jimi Hendrix who allegedly didn't even play on it. The original album, "Free Spirit" (Phoenix 10, 1980) had been shelved for years and was released after Jimi's death.
You'll find an interesting track and Hermon Hitson's story here.
