Customer Review

on 8 March 2005
Here it is at last, and although it's taken years to get here - it's worth every penny.
The first twelve tracks (Soul Sounds) on disc one is worth the price alone . . . but there's more. The fact that you get the whole "CC Rides Again" and three none album tracks gives this set a propper prospective.
Then there's disc two - a mind-blowing 25 unreleased gems, ranging from classic Holland-Dozier-Holland covers ("Ask Any Girl", "Everything Is Good About You" & "Until You Love Someone", all of which would have sounded great on "Soul Sounds") to sublime, bluesy ballads.
Berry Gordy lends a hand, as does Smokey Robinson, Frank Wilson, and a number of others. And when you here the finished product you'll be amazed at how motown could have even thought of shelving most of these tracks.
I've always loved the Temptations version of "Your Wonderful Love", but Chris's will blow you away, And Gordy's effort "Let Me Go" is a stunner.
For anyone who isn't familiar with Chris (can there be anyone?) think of a soulful Dusty Springfield, with a little Kiki Dee and a pinch of Petula Clark . . . add the Funk Brothers and the motown sound and you've got it.
An excelent release - right up there with Brenda Holloway, The Velvelettes, Barbara McNair, Jimmy Ruffin, and Billy Eckstine.
