I've been a long time fan of Lou Johnson's "booming" baritone voice. In the early 60's, he was sort of marketed as the male Dionne Warwick, having orginally released some of Burt Bacharach's songs even before Dionne.
It's unfortunate, however that there isn't a compilation of some of these fine recordings including the old 45's of "Unsatisfied", "Park Avenue", "This Denny King Crack No, "Always Something There to Remind Me", and his biggest hit, "Reach out for Me".
I think this would have been a better place to start for those not familiar with Lou Johnson's music. Andrew Chalk Tom James Scott Calluna do like "Sweet Southern Soul", however, except that copying a lot of soul artists of that time, Atlantic marketed him Lou Johnson Sweet Southern Soul having him sing some of the pop soul songs of the day -- not many originals here.
In my opinion, this album smokes SSS in quality, originality, and creativity. In a nutshell, SSS is a good album, but to me it doesn't do him proper justice considering what I know of his 60's releases and the forementioned album, "With You In Mind".
About a year ago, I gave a review of the American release of this album, stating that although I like Sweet Southern Soul, there should also be a release containing a compilation of some Lou Johnson Sweet Southern Soul Lou's earlier 60's classics to appreciate the career and legacy of this sould legend. Someone in some foreign land must have heard me, because this album does just that.
In the early 60's, he recorded a good portion of Bacharach's catalogue, before Dionne Warwick Dionne even sang background on some tunes and this album showcase some of those tunes. I would strongly recommend this import copy of SSS which includes Lou's 60's classics, for those who are just being Mario 3D World Big Band Super Mario 3D World Original Soundtrack to Lou's sound.

Roy Ayers Coffy from a musical family, he started singing in gospel choirs in his teens, before studying music at Brooklyn College.
He learned keyboards and percussion, forming a gospel group, the Zionettes, who recorded for Simpson Records and achieved some local success. Neither that song nor his second record, "You Better Let Him Go", were hits, but his third single, "Reach Out for Me", also written by Bacharach and David and this time produced by Bacharach, reached 74 on the Billboard Hot in late However, as it rose up the charts, the record company collapsed so limiting the record's success.
Johnson signed to its successor label, Big Hill, and continued to record Bacharach and David songs.
