Roy Head Interrupted the British Invasion With 'Treat Her Right'

In 1965 at the height of the British Invasion Roy Head and the Traits scored a huge hit with “Treat Her Right.” An electrifying blue-eyed soul performer with dance moves inspired by Joe Tex and Jackie Wilson, Head co-wrote the song with band member Gene Kurtz. Head told the Austin Chronicle that the song came out of performances at sock hops and dance halls across Texas.
