(5 out of 5 stars)
"This CD contains a rainbow of Redman's great work and features some wonderful vocals by Harlan Lattimore, Chick Bullock and Redman, himself.The touching "Mommy, I Don't Want To Go To Bed" starts things off and includes Redman's classic singing style--half sung and half spoken.The medley of "Shuffle Your Feet/Bandanna Babies" features Lattimore, as does many other including "It's All Your Fault," "Lazy Bones," "You Told Me But Half The Story" and "Lonely Cabin."These masterpieces show why Harlan Lattimore was considered by his peers one of the finest singers of his day. Chich Bullock had a fine voice, as well, and his style and class are represented perfectly on "Tired Of It All."To top things off, Redman sings--or, more accurately half sings and half talks--his way through "A Little Bit Later On." It's wonderful and, if you listen closely to the words, you might hesitate a bit before threatening your lover after a spat!And, of course, Redman's version of "Sophisticated Lady" simply encases that fifth star on this CD...JB"
