CD Reviews

Legendary trailblazer...Bravo Lloyd Price!
Bradly Briggs | TOLUCA LAKE, CALIFORNIA | 11/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Late fifties Lloyd Price released awesome mega-hits such as "Stagger Lee" and "Personality" crossing over to pop charts making him one of the most successful soul masters to achieve this amazing feat in the segregated dark-age fifties. This was the era where white singers covered songs sung by black artists who were only played on R&B stations and this was reality before liberal sixties came along and did away with this pathetic practice! Earlier in the fifties Lloyd Price scored big with classics such as "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" beautifully covered by Elvis in the late sixties on his legendary TV special but nobody could sing a Lloyd Price song like Mr. Price and he sold them by the millions and this collection is a fine place to start enjoying this legendary talent. Lloyd Price did a fine soulful version of "Misty" in the sixties but disappeared from the music scene after which was a shame but thankfully collections such as this can take one back to a master in his prime. Remembering late fifties as a child gifted and uniquely soulful black singers who really stood out were Jackie Wilson, Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughan, Clyde McPhatter, Dee Clark, Brook Benton, Fat's Domino and Lloyd Price...not a bad group to be connected with!!!"
All his great hits right here

"All songs are original radio versions hits as you remember them, which isn't always the case with 20th century series. If you're a Lloyd Price fan, or if you're a collector of 50's and 60's hits like I am, you'll want this one."
A True Original

"Lloyd Price is a true original whose work set the stage for other artists to come. His uptempto R&B with great hooks and memorable melodies helped pave the way for Marvin Gaye and other great soul singers of the mid 60's. Check out "Stagger Lee," "Lawdy Miss Claudie," and "Personality."

Yes, the sound does sound dated, but take a trip back to the 1950's and hear one of the grand daddies of sweet soul music."
