This is a long-overdue 'hits and rarities' U.K. compilation from one of the greatest R&B groups of them all. Led by lead vocalist Johnny Tanner and the guitar of Lowman Pauling, the gospel-infused harmonies of the "5" Royales were and still are integral to the metamorphosis of R&B into soul. Pauling was and remains the idol of Stax's premier guitarist Steve Cropper, who has written a brief note for this CD. Billy Vera has also written a piece for this project. This contains all of the Royales' major King R&B hits, including 'Think' (revived by James Brown in the 70s) and 'Dedicated To The One I Love'. It also contains many tracks that have never been reissued on U.K. CD, several of which have never been reissued.
