Percy Mayfield :: My Error

A curiously eccentric slice of downbeat soul, Percy Mayfield’s “My Error” circuitously revels in a knowing misery—a uniquely dark songwriting and vision of despair that earned him the nickname of Poet Laureate of the Blues. The track, a downtempo and mysterious waltz, comes from Mayfield’s 1970 lp Sings Percy Mayfield . . .
