A key 60s classic from the great Roy Hamilton – an album done nearly a decade after his initial rise to fame, but with a really great sound overall! Roy's vocals are wonderfully full and feeling here – a bit in the mode of Brook Benton, with some mellower country influences at the bottom of the mix – but also somewhat mature and sophisticated, too – that rising respectability of the male soul singer of the 60s, finally given the space of expression that would match older jazz vocals. Arrangements on the album are by Marty Manning, with a feel that's full, but never overwhelming – and Roy's vocals are wonderfully upfront in the mix throughout. Titles include "Guess Who", "The Same One", "Looking Back", "Baby, Don't You Cry", "It's Too Soon To Know", and "For Your Precious Love". Plus, the album's augmented by 15 more bonus tracks too – singles for MGM with arrangements by Garry Sherman, Teacho Wiltshire, Ray Ellis, Dick Hyman, Bert Keyes, and others – on titles that include "The Sinner", "Let Go", "Midnight Town Daybreak City", "You Still Love Him", "She Make Me Wanna Dance", "The Panic Is On", "You Can Count On Me", and "A Thousand Tears Ago".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
