I love to hear Lloyd Price sing; he breathed a lot of life into everything he ever performed and just one listen to this CD proves it! Lloyd's ability to cross over from R&B into pop displays his superior talent as well. Lloyd is at his usual very best on this album and there's not a dud in the bunch. In addition, the quality of the sound is excellent and that artwork is nicely done even if it is fairly standard for this CD series.

"Stagger Lee" in and of itself is a tour de force for Lloyd; he does this with panache and he belts out those lyrics like the pro he always was and still remains! Indeed, Lloyd's "Stagger Lee" remains a classic to this day. The background chorus wasn't really necessary; Lloyd's genius was more than enough to let him handle this tune on his own but they do sound pretty good anyway. "Just Because" has a fine R&B flavor to it; and Lloyd never lets go of a single superfluous note. I'm very impressed; and that music fits in perfectly with Lloyd Price's vocals. "Where Were You (On Our Wedding Day?)" is also very well done; and listen for Lloyd Price to do a superb job on "Lawdy Miss Clawdy." "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" is a big highlight of this album and it's no wonder--Lloyd performs this with panache and that music has a wonderful beat--and how's about that piano and brass?

"I'm Gonna Get Married" features Lloyd Price doing yet another wonderful job to deliver this with all his heart and soul; it's a pleasure to listen to over and over again. "Come into My Heart" also holds its own very well; and I love it! Lloyd croons faultlessly on ballads like this one; and that's grand.

Late fifties Lloyd Price released awesome mega-hits such as "Stagger Lee" and "Personality" crossing over to pop charts making him one of the most successful soul masters to achieve this amazing feat in the segregated dark-age fifties. This was the era where white singers covered songs sung by black artists who were only played on R&B stations and this was reality before liberal sixties came along and did away with this pathetic practice! Earlier in the fifties Lloyd Price scored big with classics such as "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" beautifully covered by Elvis in the late sixties on his legendary TV special but nobody could sing a Lloyd Price song like Mr. Price and he sold them by the millions and this collection is a fine place to start enjoying this legendary talent. Lloyd Price did a fine soulful version of "Misty" in the sixties but disappeared from the music scene after which was a shame but thankfully collections such as this can take one back to a master in his prime. Remembering late fifties as a child gifted and uniquely soulful black singers who really stood out were Jackie Wilson, Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughan, Clyde McPhatter, Dee Clark, Brook Benton, Fat's Domino and Lloyd Price...not a bad group to be connected with!!!

All songs are original radio versions hits as you remember them, which isn't always the case with 20th century series. If you're a Lloyd Price fan, or if you're a collector of 50's and 60's hits like I am, you'll want this one.

A couple of reasons to avoid this CD - first and foremost, it's hard-limited to hell....as a result, there's no clarity at all in these recordings which have never sounded so bad as on this CD. It's beyond me why engineers these days have to brickwall their mastering of songs to make them louder, the massive compression just kills the highs and ruins the sound. Secondly, the version of 'Come Into My Heart' presented here is an alternate take from the same session, not the hit version....a pity really, as although this version is stereo, the hit version only ever appeared in stereo on a rare ABC-Paramount stereo 45 in 1959.

If you want Lloyd's ABC recordings in better quality, seek out the 18 song 'Greatest Hits' CD issued on MCAD-11184 in 1994. A 100% improvement in sound!

Lloyd Price is a true original whose work set the stage for other artists to come. His uptempto R&B with great hooks and memorable melodies helped pave the way for Marvin Gaye and other great soul singers of the mid 60's. Check out "Stagger Lee," "Lawdy Miss Claudie," and "Personality."

Yes, the sound does sound dated, but take a trip back to the 1950's and hear one of the grand daddies of sweet soul music.

I remember listening to Lloyd Price in the late fifties thanks to my older brother Chuck. Chuck had all of Lloyd Price's 45 rpm singles and I got to listen to them every afternoon when my brother got home. Most important, these are the original recordings. You have LLoyd's biggest hits, everybody loved & still does, Stagger Lee. There's also, Just Because, which is a favorite of John Lennon. My two favorites are I'm Gonna Get Married & Where Were You ( On Our Wedding Day ) and my Mom's favorite which is Personality. There's also Lloyd's original version of Lawdy Miss Clawdy, which Elvis later covered. Lloyd Price is one of the all-time great rhythm & blues singers and musically, Lloyd stands shoulder-to-shoulder with ALL of his contemporaries; such as Fats Domino, Little Richard and all the rest. This collection by Lloyd Price is highly recommended and mandatory listening if you want to hear MORE of that great New Orleans sound that was KING back in the late fifties and early sixties.
