Yahoo LAUNCHCAST song of the day
Song:(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want To Be Right
This song was a huge hit in 1972 but Luther Ingram probably didn't have enough hits that most people would want this Greatest Hits comp on The Right Stuff. Ingram was a very good singer from the Memphis area. He originally recorded for his manager Johnny Baylor's Koko Records and went to Stax Records when Baylor used Ingram to get his hooks into the company. (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want To Be Right was written by veteran songwriters Homer Banks & Carl Hampton who worked together frequently. It's a great performance by Ingram but you might want to get it on a various artists comp like Rhino's 6CD box set Can You Dig It? The 70s Soul Experience or Soul Hits Of The 70s:Didn't It Blow Your Mind! Vol. 8 also from Rhino. I don't know what Ingram is doing today but he hasn't recorded since 1991. This is still a great song.
