Dan Penn once explained his decision to become an R&B musician by saying that, when he was a younger man, rock “was something you picked up and throwed.” Now 74, the Alabama native grew up near the Mississippi line and made his way to the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, where the songwriter and producer had a hand in some of the most timeless tunes of the late ’60s and early ’70s: “The Dark End of the Street,” Otis Redding’s “You Left the Water Running,” Janis Joplin’s “A Woman Left Lonely,” the Box Tops’s “The Letter.” Still, Penn is probably still best known for “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man,” his 1967 co-write with Chips Moman; Penn later recalled, “You just knew history was going to be made that day” as soon as Aretha Franklin sat down at Fame’s piano. Released on his own label, Dandy Records, his most recent solo album is 2013’s I Need a Holiday.
