• Lou RAWLS - The Rarest Lou Rawls - In The Beginning 1959-1962

Throughout the golden age of soul music there were very few artists as suave and sophisticated as Lou Rawls. Very few performers could embrace the worlds of gospel, pop, soul, blues and jazz with the ease of Mr Rawls and be lauded for his contributions to each of these genres in equal measure.

We think this is the most comprehensive overview of his secular career yet attempted and only a handful of titles failed to be located for this 2CD set. We begin with his first pop recordings and have ignored the gospel recordings that began his career when he was a member of The Pilgrim Travellers. We do though end our look at his early career with the now very rare reunion album he made with The Pilgrim Travellers in 1962.

Most of the 45s are making their CD debut here

Fully detailed liner notes tell the whole history of the late superstar.
