Oscar Mack worked for Otis Redding as an opening act on his early 60s tours, as well as a valet, chauffeur and general factotum – and no doubt got his chance to cut at Stax through the Great Man’s good offices. I love the loping “Don’t Be Afraid Of Love” with it’s wonderful “loose” R & B feel set up by the superb drumming. Althouhg the Big O sang the second vocal on Oscar's "Dream Girl" he certainly isn’t singing on this cut - but he did record his own version of the song which remained in the vaults until 1990.
