Clay Hammond may be best remembered a founding member of the legendary Mighty Clouds of Joy and as the author of Little Johnny Taylor's huge soul hit, "Part Time Love." "Part Time Love" was also recorded with great success by Johnnie Taylor, Issac Hayes, and Ann Peebles. He is also a Sam Cooke-style soul singer in his own right, however, who recorded for various labels in the 1960s. His most well-known efforts from that time are the four singles he did for Kent between 1966-69. These mixed Southern soul, gospel, and blues styles, yet also had a somewhat lighter and poppier production aura than much Southern soul, perhaps because they were recorded in Los Angeles. All eight songs from these 45s, as well as eight others that were recorded but not released in the 1960s, appear on the Ace CD Southern , which also includes ten tracks recorded for Kent around the same time by fellow soul vocalist Z.Z. Hill. Hammond recorded sporadic singles and albums for various labels after the 1960s, in addition to singing in the lineups of groups such as the Drifters and the Rivingtons.
