Here’s a funky soul cover of Dan Penn’s song for James & Bobby Purify in 1966 “I’m Your Puppet" by Otamendi Palace. It’s a cool continuation of the Muscle Shoals, AL sound that Ed Ward reviewed in this piece on Fresh Air:
Penn didn’t much like making records himself, and Rick Hall, Fame’s owner and engineer, wasn’t letting him produce them. In the summer of 1966, another Fame alumnus, Chips Moman, lured Penn to his studio in Memphis, and the first part of Penn’s story was over. He would continue to write great songs, of course — and, now that he’s older and more comfortable with performing, he plays the occasional gig. But it was at Fame that the Dan Penn legend was cemented.
