Today I was flabbergasted to run across a Wilson Picket type song by Milsap, "Wish You Were Here" that was damn good. I didn't even believe it was the same Milsap until I hunted down another reference, but still, I couldn't find the exact year. Judging by the facts that he started recording under his own name in 1966, and the record was produced by Huey P. Meaux, I figure the vintage is somewhere there in the mid-late sixties. I dig it. And here again is another Mel Torme type moment. Dismissing an artist's entire oeuvre because of a vague impression from decades earlier. That forehead of mine is getting a dent in it.
