5.0 out of 5 stars Not The Arthur Conley Most People Know, 2 Dec. 2011
This review is from: I'm Living Good 1964-1974 (Audio CD)
Most people's experience of Arthur Conley begins and ends with his international smash Sweet Soul Music. This is not the collection for those wanting more of the same. Indeed, Conley grew to regard the song as a millstone. This album concentrates on the slower, more soulful side of Conley's output adding weight to the late Dave Godin's assessment of Conley as a better singer than his mentor Otis Redding. Nowhere is Conley's emotional range more adequately demonstrated than on the slow burner Let Nothing Separate Us, ironically penned by Otis himself. Other tracks such as Let's Go Steady Again and This Love Of Mine confirm Conley as a soul singer of the highest quality. Before his early retirement from the business Conley enjoyed a less than totally happy relationship with the legendary producer Jerry Williams (Swamp Dogg). Conley was uncomfortable with some of the sentiments expressed in Williams' songs but little of this is apparent in his delivery. This is a well packaged collection from Ace Records with the usual thoughtful and informative notes.
