I'm Only A Man (CD)

Sale price$14.98


Famed New Orleans singer and pianist Willie Tee gives one of his finest ever performances on this classic release from 1969. Recorded under the guidance of Grammy award-winning composer/arranger David Axelrod, whose credits include Stan Kenton, Lou Rawls and countless others, I’m Only A Man introduced heavy orchestration and sweeping arrangements to Tee’s music, yet without sacrificing the emotional complexity of his vocals. Original compositions such as “Mirror” and the fantastic opener “Bring on the Heartaches” are balanced by superb cover versions of “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “People,” with some beautiful surprises (see the bold, cinematic sound of “Lonliness”) in between.

Get On Down is proud to present Willie Tee’s classic album I’m Only A Man for the first time ever on CD, packaged in a paste-on mini-LP case with die cut obi strip and dust sleeve, featuring a new digital audio transfer from the original analog tapes and a bonus track, the non-LP single “Love of a Married Man.”
