Susie Raney was a sassy young high school student when she cut William Bell’s own superb deep wailer You Hurt So Good, later covered with such distinction by Mitty Collier. Only a few copies of the 45 were ever pressed up and Susie never followed the 45 through with any other sessions. But it remains a cult single – not bad for a disc that was virtually a vanity recording, cut as a favour by Bell at the request of Atlanta’s chief promoter and artist management entrepreneur Henry Wynn. Raney was a friend of Wynn’s daughter and he featured her on one of his Supersonic package tours but she never made music her career.
UPDATE ~ I have just learned of any 45 by Susie Rainey - details now in the discography. All I have to do is find a copy...
