Forgotten Treasures

Forgotten Treasure: Eddie Hinton “I Can’t Be Me”

Soul

Eddie Hinton fits right into to the Forgotten Treasures section. I didn’t know about him at all until I read a little story about “Blue Eyed Soul” today, a term that media came up with for white artists who sang R&B… Yeah, it was a different time I guess. But strangely enough, the term stuck around with people like Jamie Liddell, Adele, Amy Winehouse, etc…

But I digress… Eddie Hinton was a session musician, playing guitar on records by Wilson Pickett, Elvis Presley, Joe Tex and so on. As a vocalist he was called “the white Otis Redding” by music producer Jerry Wexler.
