Arthur Alexander’s “Anna (Go to Him)”

[21 September 2008]

By Barry Lenser

Here’s the Arthur Alexander-performed version of “Anna (Go to Him)”.

The slinky piano line, the slightly brisker tempo, and Alexander’s soulful but still a touch inhibited vocal all give the original a distinctive feel. I prefer the Beatles’ take on it but both recommend themselves in different ways.
