This collection features 15 tracks from Walter Jackson's artistic and commercial peak (1964-1967), including his slew of R&B chart hits, highlights from LPs, and a flop single version of "My Ship Is Comin' In." On occasion, this elaborately produced commercial pop-soul reaches deeply enough into the gloss to rate as a vague precursor to the "quiet storm" music of subsequent decades.
