Considered one of the last great big band singers (he fronted bands conducted by both Lionel Hampton and Count Basie), Joe Williams achieved success as a solo singer in the mid-'50s and was equally welcome in both the jazz and blues worlds. This compact disc contains two albums recorded by the man considered one of the great vocal masters of our time.

This Collectables single-disc collects two very good albums Joe Williams recorded for RCA from the early '60s. While the presentation of this collection could have been better -- the packaging looks a little cheap and the sound isn't all it could have been -- both of these records are quite good and this is a good way to collect both records on disc, even if RCA has reissued these albums as better-sounding single discs. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
