Product Description:

Contains tracks originally released on King Records.
Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.
Donnie Elbert's initial run as a solo artist happened in the late '50s with a series of singles recorded for the King subsidiary Deluxe. All of those sides are collected here, including his one chart hit, the soul-squeezing falsetto masterpiece "What Can I Do." Elbert spent the next decade as a soul gypsy traveling from small label to even smaller label for a single or two before moving on to the next (don't worry, he eventually found a home in the '70s with All Platinum). Added to the Deluxe label catalog here are several sides recorded for the Gateway label in 1964, including a nice ballad, "Who's It Gonna Be," and three pleasingly danceable Motown sound-alikes, "Lily Lou," "Do Whatcha Wanna," and "Run Little Girl." There's also an outtake version of "I Want to Be Loved But Only By You" with the title truncated to "I Want to Be Loved" and an unaccredited outtake from the Deluxe sessions that first appeared on a mid-'70s greatest-hits collection, "I Keep Falling in Love." ~ Wade Kergan
