Friday Cat Blogging

Charlie Rich.

Fascinating profile of him in Peter Guralnick's "Feels Like Home." Done in 1971 Rich is a middlingly successful singer, but had never achieved the fame of other original Sun stablemates or that his prodigious talents would suggest. His wife seems more frustrated about that than he, but there is an air of disappointment about the whole thing. It all changed the year or so after of course when Behind Closed Doors broke through big time in '73. And when fame came it was "be careful what you wish for." Interesting to get that comparison, before, during and after getting what you thought you wanted.

UPDATE: FXH joins the fun.
