Steve Cropper says when he’s out to lunch or picking up some groceries, “Other people notice it before I do.”

“They say, ‘Do you hear that?’ And I say, ‘Hear what?’”

Then, he’ll hear it. It’s him. His guitar, sliding up and down its neck at the beginning of Sam & Dave’s “Soul Man.”

“Play it, Steve!” Sam Moore exclaims on the 1967 recording, as Cropper’s guitar lets out a high howl.
