Joe Dossett was one of the featured vocalists for the Chattanooga Coachmen, but seems to have only had the one release under his own name. Although “Plastic Saddle” is pretty awful, the mid paced You've Been Leading Me On is another kettle of fish altogether. Joe trades phrases with another fine singer all the way through this very tasty portion of southern soul. Great rhythm and horns of course, and best of all Joe’s gritty vocal, chock full of Otis Redding touches – and to an Otis obsessive like me he hits all the right notes.
