Soul Romantix Volume One
is the first in LocoBop’s series of southern soul music perfect for romantic moments, performed by some of the greatest interpreters of the art form called soul.
 

Jerry Butler (“The Ice Man”) is a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, whose string of classics began with “For Your Precious Love.” Luther Ingram’s (“If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want to be Right” has been a world standard for nearly 40 years. Dobie Gray will always be remembered for “Drift Away.”  Shirley Brown shot to fame with “Woman to Woman.” Ruby Wilson, dubbed “The Queen of Beale Street,” was a long time draw at B.B. King’s club in Memphis. The Masqueraders deliver a sterling version here of the Shirelles’ classic, “Baby It’s You.” Detroit’s KEENA GREEN and her two sisters made up Sweet Obsession and scored five singles on Billboard’s R&B charts, two of which went Top Ten. Though Tommy Tate can go head to head with Wilson Pickett, on this album he soothes like the best of crooners. J. Blackfoot scored over 15 Top Tens with the Soul Children before going solo with the smash “Taxi.” Randy Brown left The Newcomers for a successful solo path in the 1970s.
 

Hard as it is to pick highlights from this album, three particular standouts are AT LAST (Ruby Wilson), BABY IT’S YOU (The Masqueraders), and AIN’T THAT LOVING YOU (FOR MORE REASONS THAN ONE) (Luther Ingram).
