TOP 500 REVIEWERon 13 November 2012
I purchased this fantastic cd back in 2007. The overall package of this album is great. It comes with 3 mini booklets - liner notes of the original album released in 1992, production notes and writing credits, plus other more touching and personal notes and four great postcards of the great man. The sound quality of the original album is great, the live and home demo tracks are good as well. The music speaks for itself, some of the most heartbreaking songs you'll ever hear sung with a lifetimes worth of pain. Too many great tracks to mention them all but 'Lonely just like me' and 'Johnny heartbreak' are top notch. The live portion (5 tracks of music, interspersed with Arthur talking to the audience) is well worth a listen as are the hotel demos. A great package (tribute) overall, well done 'Hacktone' records. Highly recommended.

The Stones and the Beatles acknowledged Arthur Alexanders talent back in the sixties.This c.d. portrays the great man and his music beautifully.

i bought this release about four yrs ago and it still sits in my most played top ten albums along with john edwards, garland green, irma thomas, candi staton, sam dees, basically all southern soul singers,
they all sing about life tribulations, but, i think arthur has the edge on most having literally lived the songs he sings, the mans voice has matured wonderfully for this album, it was unbelievable that they managed to coach arthur out of retirement for this album after being away from music for so long, (he was a school bus driver at this time), but the saddest part of the story is arthur passed away not long after making his comeback here,
rest in peace arthur, this really is a lost and found story of southern soul,
buy it, and buy the two ace records releases (the greatest) and (the monument years) and you have pretty much a complete overview of this great singers musical life
