* A 1965 debut album set the table for an album released 55 years later. In between such a lengthy interval, this artist released a combination of 20 mostly studio albums of all flavors. Throughout this artist's career there were album releases appealing to the tastes of the dynamic music listening audiences at each interval. Eventually though, success allows for pursuits of music that most pleases the artist honoring those early roots of influence. We'll dig for a track from that album 55 years later. Name the artist...
*This artist wrote a song with the intent of giving it to Elvis Presley, who refused it. The artist's ex-wife claims it was written for her. And the artist does appear to be addressing someone specific in the song, but does not support his ex-wife's opinion. The artist then made an appearance on a November show of Soul Train, where few performers like him had such an opportunity. It was quite successful. Name the artist...and extra credit for the name of the song....
*This artist released one of his most famous songs as a single in 1972. It was heralded as a new sound for him, albeit one that he quickly abandoned when he fired two band members and disavowed the album the song eventually appeared on. The track was recorded live on a radio show and has been available in numerous guises for many years. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This 1974 classic was written by the artist in the summer at a farm he had just bought in a mid-western state. The song was basically symbolic as the artist was more or less escaping from past circumstances. With his marriage falling apart, the move allowed him to do just that...put some things behind him. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
