Description by

Benny Spellman was one of the best of the many R&B vocalists who came from New Orleans. He had a big, booming bass voice, which is shown off to great advantage on his major hit, "Lipstick Traces (On a Cigarette)", and the title song, later covered by The Rolling Stones.

Product Description:

Personnel: Benny Spellman (vocals).
Though Collectables' presentation certainly leaves something to be desired -- it's one of their early titles and it lacks extensive packaging -- they should still be commended for having the only Benny Spellman collection available on CD. Many of his tracks are available on various-artists collections, but this is the only disc available under his own name; and the 16-track collection proves that he was one of the finest New Orleans vocalists of the early 60s. His smooth baritone found a perfect fit with Allen Toussaint's typical, earthily elegant production, and he had a great set of material, too, highlighted by the hits "Fortune Teller" and "Lipstick Traces (On a Cigarette)." The other tunes may not be hits, but they are worthy additions in that tradition; making this a necessary set for New Orleans R&B fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
