If you are in the market for a CD of Jerry Butler's Vee-Jay work and don't have much cash, this could be a possibility. Though you need to know that the tracklist for this album (entitled "Whatever You Want: The Best of Jerry Butler" on the Prestige label, in case Amazon also place this review elsewhere, as they are wont to do) is incorrect: it's actually as follows:

1. Aware Of Love
2. I'm A Telling You
3. Find Another Girl
4. He Will Break Your Heart
5. Good Times
6. For Your Precious Love
7. I Stand Accused
8. Moon River
9. Need To Belong
10. Giving Up On Love
11. Make It Easy On Yourself
12. Whatever You Want
13. Thanks To You
14. It's Too Late

... which basically constitutes a reasonable selection of his best known Vee-Jay sides if you're on a budget - though the omission of Messsage to Martha is unfortunate. Sound quality is variable, however: mostly good but a couple of sides sound dubbed from vinyl.

For some buyers that may be offset by the price - though, cheap as this Prestige CD may be, I noticed too late that a seemingly identical selection of tracks is available, new, for 2.59, on the Pegasus label, entitled Good Times (assuming Amazon have got the correct details for THAT CD). Using the supersaver option, that has to be a pretty good deal which could help you overlook the odd drop in sound quality, assuming that CD, which I don't own, is taken from the same source.

And these are great tracks, make no mistake about that, some recorded with old Impressions buddy Curtis Mayfield, and many soul ballads with beautiful orchestrations such as Giving Up on Love. Butler's original version of Make It Easy On Yourself is superior to the Walker Brothers'.
