Morris Dollison began his musical career in the gospel field during the early 1960s in Chicago before making his leap into soul music. Renamed Cash McCall by a local record company without being consulted, he scored a Top 20 R&B hit under his new moniker in 1966 and then enjoyed success behind the scenes as a songwriter and session guitarist at Chess Records. He released his first full-length album, Omega Man, in 1974. Many recordings followed and he was active until his death in 2019. "One Who's Got A Lot" was released posthumously.
Released in celebration of what would have been McCall’s 79th birthday, this is a beautiful reminder of the lasting legacy of musicians through their recorded music.
