Clyde McPhatter's high, gentle tenor gave both the Dominoes and the Drifters some of their greatest hits, and his solo work found him melding R&B and pop into something resembling early soul. Like both Nat King Cole and Sam Cooke, the two singers he most resembles, McPhatter worked toward a middle ground that would combine both black and white audiences, but although he scored several huge R&B hits, he never crossed over regularly to the pop charts. This brief collection features his late-'50s solo work for Atlantic Records, including the Brook Benton-penned "A Lover's Question" and the elegant "Since You've Been Gone." Atlantic's Deep Sea Ball anthology assembles all ten of these tracks plus nine more, and may be a better place to start, but for the budget conscious, Treasure of Love & Other Favorites hits most of the high points. ~ Steve Leggett
