This CD warrants attention as it brings together most of Darrow Fletcher's 1960s material and since these come from multifarious sources ACE have really done themselves proud gathering together a set of highly enjoyable Chicago soul from a previously neglected artist. Most of these cuts were local hits but the northern favourite `The Pain Gets A Little Deeper'was a sizeable hit and Fletcher also scored with the Don Mancha penned, produced and Detroit recorded `I Think I'm Gonna Write A Song' and the moody mid-pacer, `When Love Calls'. Most of the cuts on the CD are uptempo and this is a strength with the Motown influenced 'Gotta Draw The Line' and 'I've Gotta Know Why' standing out for their power and assurance. There are also a couple of decent mid tempo offerings that Chicago did so well back in the day and 'Sitting There That Night'is well placed to be the stand out cut on the CD. As for the slower numbers such as `Those Hanging Heartaches', a Revue a-side in 1969, and `Little Girl' they do not really suit Fletcher's young voice.

The whole collection is delightfully presented by ACE. Is the collection essential? If you're first love is uptempo, mid 60s soul then this will certainly find favour containing as it does great songs from top Chicago songwriters, well sung and produced. A great ACE release.
