    And so O.V. Wright remains to this day--out of sight, out of mind. Of our deceased stars, we like to say, "Gone, but not forgotten." Sadly, the two unassailable masterpieces that O. V. Wright recorded for posterity--"A Nickel And A Nail" and "Ace Of Spades"--may no longer even rate a blip on the sonar screens of today's musicians.

    O.V. Wright - Giant Of Southern Soul This one is for Cubbs and another reader whose name I've lost. I don't have the CD's for the 3 disc Complete Backbeat set, only mp3's, but for this single disc compilation I have re-ripped to FLAC with full scans from my CD.

    This collection is the largest one available from OV Wright Backbeat recordings, which were his best, and among the best from the southern soul - OV Wright had lost most of his singing abilities on his next and last recordings for Hi: OV's voice is already weaker in the last songs in this cd.5/5(3).
