James Carr (June 13, 1942 - January 7, 2001) was a highly acclaimed R&B/soul singer from Coahoma, Mississippi widely regarded as
one of the greatest pure vocalists that deep Southern soul ever produced who became famous during the late 1960s. His best known songs include "You've Got My Mind Messed Up" (1966), "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man" (1966), and the original version of the Dan Penn/Chips Moman-penned "The Dark End Of The Street" (1967), an anguished ballad about adulterous love.
