Luther Ingram – If Loving You is Wrong…

Brilliant song to blast, this one. Sore and raw and beautiful. Nothing wrong with a bit of Wattstax/Koko. Luther Ingram didn’t make a record until he was 28 (in 1965). This is his best known song – it was later covered by Isaac Hayes (who Ingram often opened for), Millie Jackson, Rod Stewart etc.

He had a song called Exus Trek that was huge with the Northern Soul cats too – well worth a listen. Rocking. Plus, when it came to leather waistcoats and slightly odd hair styles, he really knew what he was talking about.
