CD Review: Dan Penn – Junkyard Junky (self-released)

For someone who has never had a hit record as an artist, the legendary songwriter Dan Penn has certainly accomplished everything else there is to accomplish in the music business. A key part of the Memphis soul scene in the ’60’s, Penn put himself on the map with possibly the greatest R&B hit of the decade when he wrote the song Dark End Of The Street, a hit record for singer James Carr that established Carr as a hitmaker and Penn as a songwriter and producer of note.
