Catalog no.: CDCHD0000922

Item ID: 80029

Reissue with new and improved packaging. This material was originally issued on the Dot label between 1962-65. Digitally remastered from the original master tapes. In the mid-eighties, English reissue label Ace Records introduced the wonderful music of Arthur Alexander to a new generation of music fans. Though Alexander was known for having written songs that were covered by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, prior to the Ace reissues, Alexander's own music languished in near obscurity, with only the most dedicated soul music collectors being familiar with the sublime pop-soul records that he made in the early sixties. Combining the best tracks from the two vinyl Arthur Alexander collections issued by Ace, THE GREATEST collects 21 of Alexander's greatest performances on one tidy CD. While there is a good deal of overlap with Razor and Tie's 16-song ULTIMATE compilation--particularly with the better-known tracks like "Anna" and "Shot Of Rhythm And Blues"--ULTIMATE contains six excellent tracks that are only available on this CD.
