Editorial Reviews

The only domestic collection you're gonna find from this late Mississippi-born soul man! His 1973 #1 pop smash Show and Tell joins his hits Touch and Go; La La Peace Song , and I Won't Last a Day Without You/Let Me Be the One plus Born on the Bayou; Magic of Your Mind; Queen of the Ghetto , and more. Out of print for over a decade!

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Missed Opportunity August 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Having purchased the two budget CDs of Al Wilson "Spice Of Life" and "Show and Tell", I had high expectations for this compilation since it was a Varese/Sarabande release. At last finally all of Al Wilson's hits in one release. After checking out the song selections, I am duly disappointed.
What should have been a career spanning retrospective from the sixties through the late seventies turns into a resume of just his middle period -particularly his 'Show and Tell' Rocky Road era recordings.
While that was the height of his career and Al Wison at peak form, their are some glaring omissions from his early and late periods. 'The Snake' from 1968 (released by Johnny Rivers Soul City Label) was his first recording to reach hit Top 40 status and 'I've Got the Feeling'(on Playboy) was his last. As it stands neither one of these have been released on compact disc as of this date. One of the budget CDs does contain 'the Snake', but it's a rerecording and 'Show and Tell' on both of those early compilations was inexplicably in mono.
So once again we have a missed opportunity for a full retrospective of Al Wilsons career while the hit 'Show and Tell' has been compiled on numerous various artists compilations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful Masterpiece December 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A former member of forgettable bands such as The Jewels, The Rollers and The Souls, Al Wilson started to click on the Rocky Road label and the hits began. "Show and Tell, La La Peace Song" and "I Won't Last a Day Without You/Let me be the One" were instant classics. The latter "slashed "song was a common practice in the 70's, taking two individual songs and combining them into one. Other examples are "The Way we Were/Try to Remember" by Gladys Knight and "Runaway/Happy Together" by Tony Orlando and Dawn. Most of the reviews that I have done so far are on the lesser known artists because just like their commercial successful counterparts, they deserve
to be heard and remembered as well. And , it was Al Wilson that sang these songs, not Al Green.

4.0 out of 5 stars Show and Tell is the Jam! September 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Al Wilson should have been a bigger star. This is a great "old school" CD and a must for those who want to know what real soul sounds like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Show & Tell ... and much more December 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Al Wilson gets unfairly tagged as a "one hit wonder" due to his huge hit, the brilliant "Show and Tell." But as this "Best Of" compilation demonstrates, he had a bag full of other good songs too, all of which mined a delicious soulful groove. Of course this set includes "Show and Tell" but it also has "La La Peace Song" which was actually a minor hit the same year. Other highlights include "Willoughby Brook Road," "Magic of Your Mind" and some interesting interprations of classics like "I Won't Last a Day Without You" and "Born on the Bayou." One reviewer complained that this was not a true "best of" Al Wilson collection because it doesn't contain his acclaimed late 60s and early 70s material. Fair complaint, but you get get those songs on yet another fine collection the "Soul City Sessions: 1967-71." But even this "incomplete" collection is a very good one, showcasing a soul singer who has been unjustly ignored for too many years. The man had a great voice and he chose some very good material to showcase those thrilling vocals.
