Soulin'

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Lou Rawls began his roll onto the R&B and pop charts with this 1966 work. He was now doing soul material, songs where his gospel background and instincts took over, and he simply wailed, soared, and shouted, rather than interpreting or working with blues progressions. He scored a huge hit with "Love Is a Hurtin' Thing" and had finally found a successful formula.

    This is a GREAT album!

    This is a terrific album. I purchased the ogininal on record in the 60's when it was new. Lou has a great voice, and fine sense of rhythm. Because this is a great album, I went to all the trouble of recording this album from reel to reel tape into my computer, processing and EQing it, then burning it to CD, one week before this CD came out. All you need to do is buy this CD, and the price is a steal. Lou is backed by the Onzie Mathews band, which really rocks. The recording quality is excellent, as well. It's hard to say which is better, Lou's singing or the band's swinging, but with both, this album is a "must have". I play this album more than any other music I own, and I own a LOT of music. You will not be disappointed.

    Lou Rawls' ''Soulin'' Is Good Music

    If you want to hear what soul music really is all about buy this CD or Tape. This Album really displays what can be done with classic standards and classic Lou Rawls tunes. The album is a great treat for someone whose come home from a long day at work and needs a good dose of music to chill out on. The album is also a great example for a person who is interested in becoming a good singer. The phrasing skills that Lou displays demonstrate what a person in any field of music should strive for if they truly want to be respected as a singer. When you hear Lou you've heard it all. Barbara Gainer From San Francisco
