Don Nix - Living By The Days (1971)

Don Nix is an American singer-songwriter and producer.

After the release of his debut album to little notice, Don Nix quickly got to work on its follow-up, this time released on Elektra Records. Living By The Days followed much the same template as In God We Trust, with a piano-driven gospel-flavoured sound, though some of the tracks had a bigger, more ambitious sound, complete with strings. It featured some excellent original songs, alongside a cover of Hank Williams' "I Saw The Light". Like its predecessor, it featured a brief cameo from his bluesman friend Furry Lewis. And also like its predecessor, it unfortunately had no success in launching his solo career.
Backing came from guitarists Jimmy Johnson, Tippy Armstrong, Gimmer Nicholson and Wayne Perkins, keyboardists Barry Beckett and Chris Stainton, bassists David Hood and Duck Dun, and drummer Roger Hawkins (Johnson, Beckett, Hood and Hawkins being the famed Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section).
