Elvis recorded this one during his late-’60s renaissance:
Here’s Frazier’s version of Ronnie Self’s “Home in My Hand.”
Frazier was also capable of writing more conventional country weepers, like “There Goes My Everything,” which was a big hit for Jack Greene:
This one was also recorded by Elvis. I think Elvis saw in “Mohair Sam” a direction he wanted to explore, and he picked up on a few Frazier songs in that fertile period after “Suspicious Minds.”
I’m going to end with a Dallas Frazier song some of you may be familiar with from Nick Lowe’s Impossible Bird album:
Dallas Frazier retired from the Nashville scene in the late-’80s to become a minister, but he was a master of country soul, and more people should know about him.
