The era we are concerned with here is his first album for MGM in 1963 "Warm Soul" and also the seven MGM singles that were originally released from 1963 > 1964. "Warm Soul" is re-issued here for the first time and is in part, a showcase of many fine MOR ballads, which are complemented in turn by some gorgeous gospel and soul recordings. Roy by now had honed his style perfectly to suit the recently emerging Soul sound and many consider his MGM 45 repertoire to be some of finest he ever committed to vinyl.
As a super bonus, we are proud to finally issue the previously unreleased After He Breaks Your Heart, recorded in 1964 during the legendary The Panic Is On / There She Is session, conducted by the renowned Bert Keyes.
The legendary producer Bert Berns was even at the helm of production duties on certain sessions and yet many of these recordings failed to make a big impression at the time. However, they do say that "truth will out" so it was no surprise when the Northern Soul cognoscente became hip to some of this esteemed repertoire and turned several of the MGM 45s into club and dance-floor classics; especially 'The Panic Is On', 'She Make Me Wanna Dance' and 'You Can Count On Me'. As with the album, many of these MGM 45 sides are making their CD debut.
