Clarence Carter grew up in Alabama listening to Blues singers like John Lee Hooker and Washboard Sam - guys who found many different ways to sing about sex. Carter is best known for his 1970 hit "Patches," where his bold voice and spoken word interludes told the story of a young who inherited the burden of caring for his family after his father died. Carter took these same vocal elements and turned them into "Strokin'," a ribald song that finds him asking the kind of questions Howard Stern uses to query his guests. Strip clubs put it in hot rotation. Strokin'" became a minor sensation and helped Carter's Dr. . album sell about 150,000 copies.
