A great run of music from the mighty Arthur Prysock
– an incredibly soulful singer who was at the top of the heap in the early 60s, but who's largely forgotten all these many years later! Prysock
had a really unique approach – and one that really paved the way for some of the bigger male ballad soul singers in the late 60s and 70s – a bit of jazz, with a definite influence from Billy Eckstine – mixed with a deep range that's a lot bluesier than his classy look might make you think – often set to backings that open up a new sort of sophisticated territory. Without Prysock
, it's hard to imagine Walter Jackson, Lou Rawls, Jerry Butler, and many others – and this sweet batch of singles really sums up the power of the man at his height. The CD features 24 tracks in all – many on CD for the first time – and titles include "Come & See This Old Fool", "Worry Bout You", "Again", "House By The Side Of The Road", "It's Too Late Baby Too Late", "Our Love Will Last", "One More Time", "If Ever I Should Fall In Love", and "Keep A Light In The Window For Me".
