Dee Clark was one of the most popular Soul singers of the late '50s and early '60s. Before he began recording as a solo artist in 1958, Clark had been a member of the Hambone Kids, and The Goldentones (who became the Kool Gents and were also billed as the Delegates). Included in this collection are Clark's #2 Pop smash, "Raindrops" as well as his other big hits.

Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.
Not exactly a greatest-hits package, but an interesting blend of three of Dee's biggest hits on Vee-Jay (a nice stereo mix of "Raindrops" kicks things off) with a generous helping of his later sides for Constellation. These sides capture Clark moving toward a proto-soul style, with tracks like "Crossfire Time," "I'm Going Home," "Warm Summer Breezes," and "Heartbreak" showing the depth of Clark's vocal range on ballads, soul grinders, and jazz-tinged material. Lots of great Vee-Jay sides MIA on this, but a nice companion once you track the earlier sides down. ~ Cub Koda
