Roy Kent Head (born January 9, 1941 in Three Rivers, Texas) is an American singer, best known for his hit "Treat Her Right."

AllMusic Review by

While ignored commercially, this was a very respectable piece of swamp pop revealing that Roy Headwas capable of convincingly updating his white R&B sound into the early '70s. Produced by Steve Cropper, it falls somewhere between the vibe of Van Morrison's early-'70s albums and Tony Joe White; indeed, Head covers Morrison's "You Got the Power" and White's "Dismal Prisoner 0613" (on which White himself guests on guitar). Whether getting into horn rock, quasi-funk, or blue-eyed soul,Head's vocals are consistently fine and assured, complemented by suitably rootsy Southern rock/R&B arrangements.

This place is great! Found a lot of what I was looking for, prices were very fair so I was able to pick up a lot more records. The employee there, Dustin was very kind and helped me find some stuff and try out one of the records I was on the fence about. Definitely recommend dropping by!
