“Portrait ” Sid Selvidge’s debut album, was released in 1969 on Enterprise Records, an offshoot of the legendary Memphis soul label Stax Records. Produced by Don Nix, it yielded a charted song, “The Ballad Of Otis B. Watson”, an anti-war tune that would profoundly color Selvidge’s relationship with commercial radio. Reacting to advertiser pressure, Selvidge recalls, stations were quick to take the popular song off of the air – an irony for a former deejay who had long enjoyed easy access to the airwaves. Otherwise, if I was to say that this is a real magical album, then I would be not be exaggerating. This debut album "Portrait" by US country blues/folk singer Sid Selvidge is just timeless and will haunt your soul !!!
