Amy Records: When She Touches Me

Our next selection from Amy Records is one that most folk haven’t heard – an R&B number by Mighty Sam McClain. “When She Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters)” never charted, but it is a fantastic song. McClain got his musical start in 1948 when he began singing gospel music as a five-year old boy. Although he’s never had a hit, he’s still performing today.

Mighty Sam was brought to Amy Records through his relationship to record producer, promoter, and disc jockey – Papa Don Schroeder. In addition to Mighty Sam, Schroder brought a number of R&B acts to Bell and its subsidiary Amy. One of those acts came through Mighty Sam: James and Bobby Purify who had the Top 10 hit for Bell, “I’m You’re Puppet.”

I hope you’ll enjoy your first listen to this little known Amy release from 1967 - “When She Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters).”
