Collectables has this annoying habit of putting out a multi-track CD offering the "best of" an artist - only to leave off one legitimate hit. And while Funny, which only made it to # 99 Billboard Hot 100 in April 1962 was a very minor success, it at least should have been given a spot in this CD in place of any one of the "previously unreleased" selections. Because how - by any stretch of the definition - do these qualify as the "best of" Gene McDaniels?

Born on February 12, 1935 in Kansas City, he got his start singing gospel at the Omaha University and Conservatory of Music before securing a contract with Liberty in 1960. The following year he had his first hit with A Hundred Pounds Of Clay which, b/w Take A Chance On Love, made it to # 3 Hot 100/# 11 R&B in May. Three months later A Tear [b/w She's Coming Back] levelled off at # 31 Hot 100, and before 1961 ended he added Tower Of Strength which reached the # 5 spot on both the Hot 100 and R&B charts b/w The Secret.

Chip Chip came next, peaking at # 10 Hot 100 in March 1962 (b/w Another Tear Falls) followed in April by trhe above-mentioned Funny which had Chapel Of Tears as the flipside. He then took Point Of No Return to # 21 Hot 100/# 23 R&B in September [b/w Warmer Than A Whisper], and ended the year with Spanish Lace which tooped out at # 31 Hot 100 around Christmas b/w Somebody's Waiting. All of the foregoing hits were backed by The Johnny Mann Singers.

After that, except for It's A Lonely Town (Lonely Without You). which made it to # 20 on the recently-introduced Adult Contemporary (AC) charts and # 64 Hot 100 in September 1963 b/w False Friends, further Hot 100/R&B hits eluded him.

As I write this, it's been a year since a review was done, some of the most articulate writing I have ever seen in this forum. This package of tunes contains essentially all of Gene McDaniels' best work, except for the later song he'd write for Roberta Flack, "Feel Like Making Love" (and himself). There's the classic "100 Pounds of Clay", "Tower of Strength", "Point of No Return", my favorite, "Spanish Lace" and the noteworthy "A Tear" (which was covered by at least one other artist). Everything else is a bonus. All in all, four stars. Recommended.

While he didn't have a slew of hits, "100 Lbs. of Clay" and "Tower of Strength" hold up today as well as any other songs of that genre but we have yet to see Gene join any of the revival shows of artists from that era. Where are you now, Gene? We miss you!

I only remembered Gene McDaniels for "Tower of Strength". Used to think it was great. I love all the songs on the CD. Really good to be able to purchase those old favourites. Thank you amazon.

Gene's chart career lasted less than two years , in the early 1960s , but during that period he made several significant records , all of which are on this CD. My favourites are " Chip Chip " , Spanish Lace " and , in particular , " Point Of No Return " , which I think deserved a higher chart placing than no.21 in the U.S. I do feel that his version of " Tower Of Strength " pales in comparison with British singer Frankie Vaughan's faster , more powerful version , and his rendition of " A Hundred Pounds Of Clay " is really no better than the British cover version by Craig Douglas. However , all Gene's performances are solid , even on less compelling material , and I would strongly recommend this CD to anyone looking for all his hits gathered on one compilation. I read recently on the Internet that he apparently disliked his pop hits , preferring the more jazz-oriented material to which he turned later in his career , and I think that's a pity.

Gene Mcdaniels's collection of songs brought back many good memories. His rendition of "Point of No Return", has never been duplicated. Come to think of it I never heard another recording artist sing it. I first heard Gene back in the late 60s and still enjoy his "Hundred Pounds of Clay", "Chip, Chip", songs very much. Glad I now have his cd in my collection.,

I heard many of these songs on the radio, Hundred Pounds of Clay was one of my favorites from those early years.I hesitated buying this, as often happens, you get something from the past, and you wonder what it was thet made you think this would be worth owning. Gene's music sounds just as good, even better than I remember. Ohh!, for the days when all you needed was talent.
