Liner Note Author: Joel Dorn.
This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out of print Hank Crawford LPs: True Blue and Double Cross, originally issued in 1964 and 1968, respectively. These 18 soul-jazz tracks include "Shake a Plenty," "Skunky Green'," and Martha & the Vandellas' hit "Jimmy Mack." This is an enjoyable reissue, although most listeners would be better served with Heart and Soul: The Hank Crawford Anthology on Rhino. ~ Al Campbell
