Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Tell the Truth”

Derek and the Dominoes – Ray Charles

This performance from the Old Grey Whistle Test was several years after Derek and the Dominoes, but That group is where Clapton’s song first made it to vinyl.

Listen to Yvonne Elliman, the original Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar, and Marcy Levy wail away on this song also.

.

The recording is attributed to Ray Charles, but the real star here is Margie Hendrix (or Hendricks), one of the Raelettes, who provides the lead vocals for the first three quarters of the song.
