William Bell: The Real William Bell

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, November 1971

AFTER MANY years of having a fake William Bell on hand, the real McCoy finally arrived in Britain recently in the form of a suave, soft-talking man with a controlled but definite southern drawl. Indeed, this was the man who actually recorded the hits 'Tribute To A King' and 'Private Number', the latter with Judy Clay.
