WHERE THERE'S A WILL * LONNIE MACK * PRESIDENT 127 * UK
This was the third of three top records (the first two were instrumentals) from guitarist and singer Lonnie Mack, released on Fraternity 918 in the US, it wasn't issued in Great Britain until 1967. Written by L(arry) Williams the song is a fervent Blues ballad that, as legend has it was played on R&B stations until they found out he was white, hmmm. Whatever the mythology surrounding him this is a top Soul song, sung with a girl group backing that wants nothing.
