"For the last 2yrs or so, I have had the opportunity for twice a day each month to speak with him about his music, his family, his health problems and his continusly praise to God. We found each other because of similar stroke problems. My beginning with love of blues and rock (especially from New Orleans -my boyhood home)Benny's was always a favorite artist. In turn, he kept me fascinated for hours as he spoke about his career and the "inside" about many of the previous and present working during the early '50s, 60s, etc. Benny still sings his written songs as he explains the meaning of the lyrics. Now I have rediscovered this great man.Benny still suffers from a fall off a stage and following a stroke. He walks a little slower and he has to use a cane to help his balance so times. But the fire in his eyes burn when he talks about his work. ..."
A NEW ORLEANS CLASSIC

"If you are a lover of early 60's New Orleans R&B, this is a classic. Benny was a back-up singer with Ernie K-Doe and Allan Tousaint. He had a score with "Lipstick Traces" (included) and this compilation covers almost all of his Minit and Imperial sides. It was a smart move by Collectables in putting this on CD. If you want to add to your early R&B collection, this is one to consider."

"for those of you who wonder whatever happened to benny spellman, I am his life long friend, classmate, and now choir member. He is alive and well here in Pensacola, fl, and a member of two choirs at ST. JOSEPH'S CATHOLIC CHURCH here. He still sings just as good, only now he is singing more for the Lord.
