Ten top tier soul crooners are featured on this LocoBop album of warm, romantic songs.

The inimitable Jerry Butler opens the set with his rendition of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s classic “Make it Easy on Yourself.” Jerry Butler transitions into Dobie Gray’s “When a Man Loves a Woman”, a far smoother and more romantic version than Percy Sledge’s impassioned plea. The ‘sweet soul singer’ Luther Ingram offers the third selection, his multi-jillion selling “(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want to be Right.”

Eddie Floyd debuts a heretofore unreleased track, “Loving You,” recorded with former Stax colleagues in 1980. The Masqueraders offer up one of their most favorably received songs “(Call Me) The Traveling Man.” We reach way back into the vaults to reissue “Don’t Fool Yourself” from Ivory Joe Hunter.” Memphis product J. Blackfoot sings another beautiful Homer Banks anthem, “I’m Going Away.”

Tommy Tate croons the self-penned “Don’t Make Me Explain.” Another great Homer Banks song follows, “Bedroom Eyes”, this time more than ably taken up by Randy Brown. R.B. Hudmon closes us out with “It Makes Me Wanna Cry.”
