funky soul from the late overton vertis wright. "ace of spades" was produced by hi records producer willie mitchell in memphis,tennessee. there is about 3 different versions of this song all featuring the same backing instrumental but has o.v. phrasing and ad-libbing differently on each. since this is the version i heard first back when i was a kid,this one's my favorite. for some reason,this version can only be found on vinyl. o.v. wright will always be remembered as one of the greatest hard soul singers of all time. he was a stateside favorite and enjoyed a cult following overseas especially japan.
o.v. wright sadly passed away in 1980.
