Got To Get You Off My Mind, Soloman Burke, 1965 Burke: “It was written in California the night of Sam Cooke’s death. I learned of Sam Cooke’s death after leaving him two hours prior to that. At the same time I learned about my wife wanting a divorce. A special delivery letter was at the desk waiting for me in the hotel.”
Background vocals include Dee Dee Warwick (sister to Dionne Warwick) and Emily “Cissy” Houston (mother of Whitney Houston and aunt to the Warwick sisters).

“True story. Okay, so I’m like sitting on State Route 4 enjoying some midnight road pizza, minding my own business, and this car comes outta nowhere and BAM!
“I’m like, ‘Dude, didn’t you see me eating that dead crow? Are you blind?’ They always say the same damn thing as they help you up:
“‘Sorry, I didn’t see you. You were invisible.’ Meanwhile, blood’s spewing out my ears like a Bronx fire hydrant on a hot summer day. So I bit him.
“I’m like, ‘Sorry, your hand was invisible. Ever had rabies?’
“So, yeah. I bought him 21 shots that night and he never even thanked me.”

Mickler compiled these rural recipes of great artery clogging goodness. Be sure to check with your doctor first before trying them, and no, there aren’t any possum or squirrel recipes. For those you need a copy of The Foxfire Appalachian Cookbook.

“Five Pounds Of Possum” may be the greatest roadkill song ever.
