As a songwriter, he was responsible for standards associated with Aretha Franklin, James Carr, Waylon Jennings, and B. J. Thomas. He was asession guitarist for Franklin and other musicians.In Memphis, he began an association with Satellite Records (later Stax Records), producing their first hit single, Carla Thomas’s 1960 “Gee Whiz.” He also produced the first single for the Stax subsidiary label Volt, “Burnt Biscuits” b/w “Raw Dough,” by the Triumphs, whose members included future Al Green and drummer Howard Grimes. Leaving Stax in 1964 after a monetary dispute with label founder Jim Stewart, he began operating his own Memphis recording studio, American Sound Studio.
There he, along with guitarists Reggie Young and Bobby Womack, bassist Tommy Cogbill, pianist and organist Bobby Emmons, and drummer Gene Chrisman, recorded the Box Tops, Womack, Merrilee Rush, Mark Lindsay (Paul Revere and the Raiders), Sandy Posey (notably “Single Girl”), Joe Tex, Wilson Pickett, Herbie Mann and Petula Clark.
