    ITEM#: 10870828

    Alongside the Right Stuff's two-disc ANTHOLOGY compilation, ESSENTIAL is one of the best Lou Rawls collections on the market, arguably besting that set with its song selection, sequencing, and overall presentation. Rawls's genius was in his blending of blues, jazz, and pop, and that genius shines through on all 37 tracks here. Whether it's the Philly Soul smoothness of latter-period Rawls (the collection kicks off with "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine," one of his most successful singles), or the rawer, bluesier fare of his early career ("Tobacco Road"), the many faces of Lou Rawls are assembled here with care. Even given his many stylistic shifts, the set hangs together beautifully, thanks almost entirely to the man's inimitable, elegant singing.
