Ned Doheny has been one of my favorite (and more underrated, in my opinion) L.A. singer-songwriters from the 70's era. He was known in the L.A. singer-songwriter community, but was largely unknown by the mainstream. He recorded a few solid albums, notably Prone but especially Hard Candy, as it features some sun-soaked groovers. File under: early Hall & Oates, Todd Rundgren, and Bobby Caldwell, among the blue-eyed soul greats. "A Love of Your Own" is one of Doheny's most solid cuts, with some tasty vibes, and also featuring Steve Cropper on guitar and Tower of Power on the horns!
