22 APRIL 1966
Ray Sharpe had his biggest (and only) hit in 1959 with 'Linda Lu', which featured Duane Eddy on guitar. Sharpe's 1966 recordings with the excellent King Curtis Orchestra produced 'Help Me (Get The Feeling) Parts 1 and 2'. This did not chart but had a distinct 'Stax' groove that is very similar to the Bar Kays' hit 'Soulfinger', which came out the following year.
Perhaps one of the most notable aspects of these recordings is that they featured the still-unknown Jimi Hendrix.
