The Real Deal, 
Get on board the soul train and enjoy a practioner of genuine soul music. In the rich tradition of Sam Cooke and James Carr, Elvin Spencer is the real deal. There's very little "filler" on this album. From Elvin's soulful rendition of the Rod Stewart classic, "Tonight's The Night" to the R&B laced title track, virtually every song stands out. There are no synthesizers or other electronics; just a "real" soul singer backed by "real" (fine)musicians, playing "sweet" soul music. Quite refreshing. (And the production/mixing at the world famous "Sun Studios" is excellent, too)
