Awesome soul track. Great mid tempo beat - stunning vocals by Al Wilson. Much under rated artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent 9 Jun. 2010
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Years ago I made a fool of myself-I'm still really adept at this-- going into a record shop and asking for the single, "Show And Tell.---------By Lou Rawls.

But if you listen to this album, it is a forgivable mistake. Al Wilson's voice has the same type of grit and the same type of honey, and it is really only when you know both that you can tell the difference

But the title track to Show And Tell was a perfect middle-of-the-road soul single for 1970s AM radio. A little funky, sung with extreme passion, not as brash as James Brown, not as lush as the Spinners or OJs.

Most of this album follows suite, with numbers ranging from vaguely funky to some string coated ballads. There is nothing surprising here, but Wilson's voice is simply amazing, on both the ballads and the uptempo tracks. Show And Tell does not have a bad track on it, and while it is no rock concept album, the album is certainly not just a vehicle for the single.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sould read "digitally destroyed" 1 Feb. 2014
By Ricardo Innamorato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Love the songs, but the audio sound of this CD was ruined in an attempt to re-master, or more accurately put "thin out with bad EQ". The cd is all high frrequency. no natural mids or bottom that the songs and era were famous for. I was so disappointed my first impression was to toss it in the trash. No reflection on the artists or his songs. You'd be better off looking for show and tell on a cd complilation for 5-6 bucks and probably find better audio quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brings back so many memories 4 Mar. 2013
By 298mc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Was so excited about getting this cd. I bought it for my husband as it was one of his favorite 8 tracks. We purchased this together on our first trip together after becoming engaged and listened to it all the time. It was our favorite music during our honeymoon trip. As for the cd, the music was very good. Really can't complain about that for one that was remastered. However, I was disappointed in that the cd itself does not have the album cover photo. It is plain with generic printing and if you had several cds not in their covers it would be hard to locate by sight. The second thing that disappoints me is that when placing it in my laptop to play, the name of the cd and the song names do not pop up to be viewed when the audio player comes on. Any other cd I have ever purchased shows the cd name, artist and song titles. Don't know if this is because it was remastered and they just didn't take the time to add these features when played or what. However, I still enjoy the music immensely and the missing items will not prevent me from hours of enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless, in my generation, we actually done some ... 22 April 2016
By Joe A. Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Timeless, in my generation, we actually done some crazy thing, but we all had something in common when it came to our music, it had to have at least four or more songs worth listening over and over, or it was not worth investing in. This one exceed that and more.
