If someone wanted to know what Soul and R&B was about I would give then this disc and say "Listen and Learn". All tracks are essential, always worth a listen, and if you don't have them in your collection then something is wrong. Soul is the Goal!

Soul for real, Bowman! Quite a few great choices I'd put in the 'crooner' category. I especially dig the Lou Rawls cut!
