Title - 'The Essential Lou Rawls' (Legacy)
Artist - Lou Rawls
Lou Rawls had a 30 year career in show business and easily became one of the most legendary soul singers of all time. With his husky sultry voice, Lou delighted fans for decades with his music. Legacy Recordings has just released this wonderful 2-disc CD titled "The Essential Lou Rawls" - a set that includes 33 of Lou's classic hits. Songs featured on the compilation include "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine," "Groovy People," "Tobacco Road," and "Lady Love" among many, many other Lou Rawls classics.
This superb compilation of Mr. Rawls' Philadelphia International and Capitol recordings is a fine tribute to one of the greatest crooners ever. The booklet has both a very insightful and revealing essay and is replete with photos from the various phases of Lou's career. The icing on the cake, however, is the superb sound quality on all tracks and the obvious care and attention to detail which the people at Sony Legacy Recordings applied to this package's creation.
Whether you knew Lou Rawls before "You'll Never Find..." or not, you owe it to yourself to listen to the early, young Mr. Rawls, too...you'll also be saying, "Yeah! " To paraphrase the title of a song Lou recorded on his "All Things In Time" CD: THESE SONGS WILL LAST FOREVER!!!
