"Otis Clay sings in front of a devoted Japanese audience and gives the performance of his life. He sticks to the style that made him - raw, passionate, Southern-style soul that sounds like it was born in Memphis. His intense singing shows his gospel roots with His Precious Love included on this disc. Other highlights include Holding On To A Dying Love, and the O.V. Wright song, A Nickel And A Nail. This collection is an excellent overview of his hits. It was recorded in 1983 and has the core of the band that backed up Al Green in the 70's. A good place to start if you're new to Otis Clay. There's no one like him!"
