Reissued in 2003 with extra tracks and beautifully remastered sound, the FABULOUS SONGS OF JIMMY SCOTT, originally released in 1960, showcases Scott's stunning, inimitable voice. The vocalist suffered from Kallmann's Syndrome, which kept his voice perpetually at a high, pre-pubescent tenor, yet he parlayed his physical limitation into an exquisite instrument, and he was capable of rendering great emotional power in his deliveries.
FABULOUS SONGS OF JIMMY SCOTT contains some traditional numbers ("Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child") and some standards ("The Way You Look Tonight"), but all of the material is presented with a sophistication and passion that are uniquely Scott's. He is arguably at the height of his powers here (the control he holds over his vibrato is truly amazing), making FABULOUS one of the singer's best early recordings.
