This chapter focuses on the work of Tommy Cogbill. Cogbill never became well known outside the business, partly because almost all the attention given to American would focus on Chips Moman and partly because the Memphis music industry, where he made his reputation, was more low-key than was Nashville’s. However, a year’s worth of hits—“Soul Deep,” “Sweet Caroline,” and “Brother Love,” as well as neglected masterworks such as the American group instrumentals, “Sign On for the Good Times,” “I Shall Be Released,” and Angeline Butler’s album—was a list of accomplishments any producer could envy.
