All of these songs are really good. "Always Something There to Remind Me" has a great sound to it; the musical arrangement fits in perfectly with R.B.'s vocals and there's no wonder this was a hit for him! "Don't Play That Song" again displays R.B.'s incredible ability to deliver a poignant ballad with panache; and "Take a Letter, Maria" is something I could never tire of hearing when R.B. Greaves sings it! "Cupid" shows how well R.B. Greaves could cover a tune and by playing a little bit with tempo and key changes put his own stamp on it and make it his own. It's impressive.
"This Is Soul" and "Ballad of Leroy" are very well done; "Ain't That Good News" again has R.B. Greaves squarely in the spotlight which is right where he will always belong! "Birmingham, Alabama" is another song that moves me with a story that is really not that happy and the CD ends with two excellent numbers, "Home to Stay" and "Oh When I Was a Boy."
Although R.B. Greaves left us all too soon, he lives on through his music. These songs for download highlight his talent as a gifted man who sang beautifully and with true passion. I highly recommend the timeless music of R.B. Greaves.
Secondly - the audio on this re-release is substandard
Thirdly - I'm confused - what I received was this CD, released in 2003 by Acrobat in the UK. What the Amazon website lists TWICE is a new release for 2011. The first listing for the 2011 re-release shows the track details for the Collectables reissue of R.B. Greaves' earlier Atco album. The second shows the track listing on this CD with a 2011 release date. I'd return it but for the fact that the music is so substandard.
