Lonnie Mack - Whatever's Right (1969)

Lonnie Mack is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist.

Whatever's Right was Lonnie Mack's second album of 1969, and like its predecessor (Glad I'm In The Band) it exhibited his blend of rock & roll, blues, soul and country, highlighted by fantastic vocals, excellent band arrangements, and of course superb guitar playing. The songs included covers of The Falcons' "I Found A Love", Jimmy Reed's "Baby What You Want Me To Do", Bobby Bland's "Share Your Love With Me" and Willie Dixon's "My Babe", along with a couple of very strong originals which bookended the album. 
It was another hit with the critics, but sales were disappointing. Mack then moved away from recording and into a producing / session work / A&R role for Elektra Records. He recruited many southern blues and country artists to the label, and his most well-know studio session saw him playing bass (and according to rumours, some lead guitar as well) on The Doors' Morrison Hotel album.
