One has to be careful about some of these discount releases on Pickwick/33 – they were a discount label for a reason, offering cheap compilations of previously released material – but this one is really fantastic.

Lou Rawls passed in 2006 and he put out over 70 albums, so there’s a lot to collect, especially from the 1960s and 70s.

My copy via a record fair at Mill No. 5 in Lowell MA. The rear cover is peeling up a bit, but the vinyl is in great shape – good find!
