Lou Rawls – Soulin’ – CD

This Elemental Music release presents Lou Rawls classic album Soulin’. Lou Rawls began his roll onto the R&B and pop charts with this 1966 work. He was now doing soul material, songs where his gospel background and instincts took over, and he simply wailed, soared, and shouted, rather than interpreting or working with blues progressions. He scored a huge hit with “Love Is a Hurtin’ Thing” and had finally found a successful formula. Rawls (1933-2006), also voice actor, songwriter, and record producer, is best known for his singing ability: Frank Sinatra once said that Rawls had “the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game”. Rawls released more than 60 albums, sold more than 40 million records, and had numerous charting singles, most notably his song “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine”. He was a three-time Grammy-winner, all for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
