Editorial Reviews

Following his Dominoes and Drifters career and five years on Atlantic as a solo artist, Clyde McPhatter moved to MGM (briefly) and then to Mercury. Though his high tenor was as angelic as always and he scored one of his all-time biggest pop hits during this time ( Lover Please ), this era of his career has been poorly documented in recent years. These 41 tracks rectify that as you hear the hits Lover Please; Ta Ta; I Told Myself a Lie; Twice As Nice; Let's Try Again; Think Me a Kiss; I Never Knew; Little Bitty Pretty One; Deep in the Heart of Harlem , and more!

Pay attention to the words "limited edition"! That means GET IT NOW. It's Clyde -nothing more needs to be said, but I'll say a few more things anyway. Mr. McPhatter's legendary years on Atlantic and earlier with The Dominoes have been covered extensively on CD. Upon leaving Atlantic, Clyde signed with MGM records for a huge advance (for those days). Clyde wanted to be more than just the R&B superstar that he was. he wanted to appeal to everyone and do a lot of different kinds of music. So when an album of standards and one of heavily orchestrated pop tunes flopped on MGM, Clyde wound up at Mercury where he straddled the line between bluesy r&b and more adult oriented pop tunes. His years at Mercury yielded a lot of truly great sides (along with some less than stellar material). Fortunately much of the great material at Mercury & MGM wound up at singles releases. This collection contains every single release A & B side for MGM and Mercury and is a dream come true for McPhatter fans. The production and care that went into the sound and packaging make it a treasure. I will also note that the track list presented here and on other sites is incomplete. it DOES contain Clyde's last few Mercury singles including the R&B Top 10 "Deep In The Heart Of Harlem" and his last chart hit "Crying Won't Help You Now". NOTE TO HIP O SELECT: Thanks for releasing this, now please consider two absolutely essential McPhatter albums from his Mercury years
"Golden Blues Hits" and the criminally ignored concept masterpiece "Songs of The Big City" and if you're feeling real ambitious you might think about putting out Clyde's last album "Welcome Home" (1970 Decca) which has become somewhat of a cult classic with the Northern Soul crowd. Note to potential customers - GET IT YOU'LL THANK ME.

This beautifully presented 44-track 2CD set from Hip-O Select was initially issued on their own website in May 2010 in the USA, then given a US public release in late July 2010 and now an August 2010 official release here in UK (not usually the norm for Hip-O Select mail-order issues).

It's a non-numbered limited edition of 5000 and gathers up all his singles for M-G-M and Mercury Records in the USA between 1959 and 1965. His Billy Ward and The Dominoes and Drifters periods prior to this on Federal, King and Atlantic are covered extensively elsewhere (see also my review for The Drifters "Original Album Series" 5CD mini box set). Notable songwriter contributions include Brook Benton, Clyde Otis, Charles Singleton, Jimmy Oliver, Neil Sedaka, Billy Swan, Gene Pitney, Otis Blackwell, Ed Townsend and the set also boasts 8 of McPhatter's own compositions.

Hip-O Select B001423302 will allow you to sequence the A & B-sides of all 22 of his 7" singles as follows (release date and catalogue number beneath each coupling)...

Disc 1 (54:20 minutes):
1. I Told Myself A Lie
2. (I'm Afraid) The Masquerade Is Over
(March 1959 on M-G-M K12780)

In the early 50's every young man with singing qualities wanted to sound like Clyde McPhatter, such a sensation he was...
Starting in 1952 with Billy Ward's Dominoes,than with the help of Atlantic records he was the founder of the Drifters in 1953, in the Army in 1954....Solo after Army. In fact his career was in the slumps in 1959 where this very good double CD starts! His voice is great as ever, the musicians are cooking but missing are the great songs.
Nevertheless this is a CD every admirer of fantastic voices must own..It has no barrier, you may like doo-wop , Rhythm & Blues, Pop, it is all there in that matter. Clyde deserves to be heard ....forever!
