Mills Record Company

With his mellifluous, Gospel-infused voice, former Dominoes and Drifters lead singer Clyde McPhatter is acknowledged as one of the greatest, most influential singers of the 1950s and 60s. This compilation comprises three solo albums, "Golden Blues Hits", "Lover Please" and "Rhythm And Soul", plus a dozen non-album 45s, all recorded for the Mercury label between 1960-62. These are regarded as being among his finest Mercury recordings, and include his two huge 1962 "comeback" hit singles, 'Lover Please' and 'Little Bitty Pretty One'. McPhatter sadly died young, of alcohol-related problems, at the age of only thirty-nine, in 1972. This body of work - notably the non-LP singles, which appear herein as "Bonus Tracks"?- are notoriously hard to find elsewhere on CD
