About A Hundred Pounds of Clay

"A Hundred Pounds Of Clay" is a song written by Kay Rogers, Luther Dixon, and Bob Elgin and performed by Gene McDaniels. The song reached #3 on the Billboard chart and #11 on the R&B chart in 1961. The song appeared on his 1961 album 100 Lbs. Of Clay!The song was produced by Snuff Garrett. Earl Palmer played drums on the song. In the early '60s, the BBC banned the song and wouldn't allow British radio stations to play it. The controversy arose not from the fact that it was a religious song, but because the censors interpreted the song as suggesting women were created simply to be sexual beings, and the BBC felt something that was considered blasphemous should not air to avoid controversy.
