Recorded at Rick Hall’s legendary FAME studio in Muscle Shoals I’m Just A Prisoner pulled together five tracks - I’d Rather Be An Old Man’s Sweetheart (Than A Young Man’s Fool), I’m Just A Prisoner (Of Your Good Lovin’), Evidence, You Don’t Love Me No More and Sweet Feeling - that had appeared as A and B- sides on early singles issued in 1969 and 1970.
