A Nickel and a Nail and Ace of Spades

£ 31.99


Sometimes great things come in humble packages. The ramshackle cover art for this 1972 album makes it look like a bootleg, and the rampant misspellings and inconsistencies in the album and song titles make it clear that whoever was in charge of proofreading at the Back Beat label must have taken the day off when the art was circulated. But no matter... seldom has the secular met the sacred with as much emotional force as on O.V. Wright's A Nickel and a Nail and Ace of Spades. That's what makes it one of the greatest Southern soul records ever waxed.
