Brook Benton comes full circle – and after helping to form the idiom that would later become known as southern soul, he gets a chance to appear on Atlantic's new Cotillion label – easily a showcase for some of the best up-and-coming southern work at the end of the 60s! Brook's warm vocals are a perfect fit here – and the album was recorded in Miami, fast becoming Atlantic's new home in the south – with full arrangements by Arif Mardin that help take Brook past some of the country cliches of earlier years. Backing is by a small combo, and the Sweet Inspirations add in some vocals – and titles include the sublime "Rainy Night In Georgia", plus "We're Gonna Make It", "A Little Bit Of Soap", "Desertion", "Where Do I Go From Here", "Life Has Its Little Ups & Downs", and "Baby". (Cover has some staining along the opening.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An interesting move for Don Covay – a singer who started out as a fairly straightforward soul performer, then got a bit bluesier in the early 70s, then shifted back to a more pop-oriented groove. This one's got Don working with arrangements by Bobby Martin and Dexter Wansel that still keep ... LP, Vinyl record album
