• One of the more popular artists to emerge from the 1950s R&B scene, the great Gene MCDaniels approached pop music with the sensibilities of a jazz singer. His unusual phrasing, with sudden dips of his voice, pulling his melodies through the less worn paths of pop and early soul chord changes, make him a standout performer.

• This essential release includes two of McDaniels’ finest and celebrated studio albums from his most inspired years: 100 Lbs. of Clay! and the equally splendid Tower of Strength, both issued by Liberty Records in 1961, and produced by Snuff Garrett. These two LPs include a bunch of formidable songs melted between upbeat pop, jazz and R&B, among them its respective title songs (the latter co-written by Burt Bacharach) which charted in the Billboard Top-5. In addition, this remastered collectors’ edition also includes 6 bonus tracks from the same period
