David “Fathead” Newman — Fathead

I’m a huge Ray Charles fan and love his records on Atlantic.  Saxophonist David “Fathead” Newman was an important part of that band and recordings of that period.  His debut solo album features a smaller version of the same group, including Charles on piano, Hank Crawford (bari), Marcus Belgrave (tp), Edgar Willis (bs), and Milt Turner (dr).  (Details: Atlantic 1304 mono/red and purple “white fan” label/2nd pressing)
