5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST of BOBBY...AND HIS BROTHERS !!! January 28, 2009
By willgee
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
THE VALENTINOS...The Cleveland,Ohio-based family R&B group, consisting of 2009 Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer BOBBY WOMACK and his four brothers,CECIL WOMACK,FRIENDLY WOMACK (yes, that's his real first name), the late HARRY WOMACK (of "Harry Hippie" fame), and CURTIS WOMACK, once rivaled another Cleveland-based group, THE O'JAYS, in local popularity.But, as the lyrics of one of their hit songs, "It's All Over Now", stated : "The tables turned". THE O'JAYS went on to become R&B superstars, while THE VALENTINOS, sadly, fell into undeserved obscurity. Today, THE VALENTINOS are barely remembered ,save for a few hard-core 60's R&B fans , such as myself , and many fans of the popular "Northern Soul" music scene across the pond in England , where they are revered as one of the best. You may not remember THE VALENTINOS, but you have , for sure ,heard their songs,if not by them, then almost certainly by the many COVER VERSIONS of their hits recorded by other artists over the years.
Case in point : Their hit , "IT'S ALL OVER NOW" was covered , and made a bigger hit by THE ROLLING STONES. Their biggest hit , the 2 million - selling "LOOKING FOR A LOVE", was covered by THE J GEILS BAND , and also later by BOBBY himself as a solo artist. Their 1973 hit , I CAN UNDERSTAND IT , was covered by NEW BIRTH. Fellow RRHOFamer SOLOMON BURKE covered their hit, "EVERYBODY WANTS TO FALL IN LOVE". the WICKED one, WILSON PICKETT, covered their hit ,"I FOUND A TRUE LOVE",
Pretty INFLUENTIAL for a group you've never heard of , right ?
Even their name "THE VALENTINOS", was STOLEN by a popular rock group in Australia,until BOBBY and his brothers threatened to sue.

This is an excellent compilation of songs by the young Womack brothers, or "The Valentinos." The sound quality is great on this disc but it lacks a set of liner notes or a booklet with dates and other information about each track. I was really hoping to read more about each song and some background on the group. I bought this disc for one song, track #4 "Lookin' For A Love" and I definitely got what I wanted. This song should have been a smash hit on the R&B charts in 1962, it is truly a smooth tune that is just too cool. I suppose I should not have assumed I'd get a booklet with the CD, but it was still worth it.
