With a voice like childhood friend Sam Cooke’s, Rawls’career covered soul, gospel, jazz and…Budweiser ads. But his ’60s work with producer David Axelrod is among his finest, a loose-limbed soul captured here in all its raw glory. Interpretations of Donovan’s “Season Of The Witch”or Stephen Stills'”For What It’s Worth”are great introductions to his versatile voice. Rawls’laid-back passion and Axelrod’s groovy production are invaluable additions to fans of both artists. A match for the legendary Stateside’s Axelrod and Minnie Ripperton retrospectives.
