Earl Gaines, Jr. (August 19, 1935 – December 31, 2009) was an American soul blues and electric blues singer. In the latter capacity he had minor success with "The Best of Luck to You" (1966) and "Hymn Number 5" (1973). Noted as the best R&B singer from Nashville, Gaines was also known for his lengthy career.
The years covered on WestSide's 1999 compilation Lovin' Blues: The Starday-King Years 1967-1973 are not necessarily among Earl Gaines' best-known or most-celebrated sides. The singles he cut in the late '50s and early '60s, primarily for Excello, form the core of his legacy, but this music is high-grade Southern soul all the same. It's in a similar vein as the Excello recordings, but it's clear that this is post-Stax material with the punchy horns and gritty rhythm section.

Nothin' But the Blues. Other albums by Earl Gaines. Gaines conveys the grit and passion of the blues while dressing it up in a suave, uptown Saturday night soul style. His debut for Ecko, NOTHIN’ BUT THE BLUES, features more of what Gaines is known for-songs about cheating, the healing power of a good love, and tough lessons of the past, all put across by his rich, down-to-earth, big-as-outdoors soulful voice.
