The album throughout is decorated with photographs and, the sleeve notes offering information on his life and career. Clyde McPhatter fronted Federal Records super-group Billy Ward and His Dominoes, and his career at Atlantic Records began when he helped form The Drifters, and he then gained international solo fame while signed to the label.
