Better known as one half of Ben and Spence, James had only this one 45 as a solo artist before he teamed up with Ben Moore. But in truth Get It Over could have been marketed as another of the duos as the backing singers are so much in the limelight. In any event this is a fine Muscle Shoals ballad in the grand tradition. I love the muted trumpet and organ accompaniment – but the best part is undoubtedly Spence’s downscale wail as he ends the verses. Very nice production from Buddy Buie too.
