Rare Collectable and Soulful, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Sam Cooke to the contrary, RCA wasn't known as a soul powerhouse in the 1960s, but it did issue its share of recordings in the style. This 24-track compilation doesn't have any hits, although there are little-known outings from Johnny Nash, the Exciters long after the "Tell Him" days, Roy Hamilton, and ex-Oriole Sonny Til; in fact, about half of it was previously unreleased.

If you find yourself in between, you may find it useful to know that the better tracks include Lorraine Chandler's gutsy version of "You Only Live Twice" yes, the same James Bond theme that was a hit for Nancy Sinatra, Hamilton's version of Bacharach-David's "Reach Out for Me," and Nash's Drifters-type go at his own composition "What Kind of Love Is This" which would be a hit for Joey Dee.
