This fabulous LP is a mouth-watering overview of arguably the most enduring and influential of all the 1950s R & B groups – the “5” Royales featuring the best and most effective tracks from their stays at King and Home Of The Blues.

The elite of their Golden Age recordings can all be found on this LP, when they were bridging the gaps between gospel, R & B and the emerging soul style. And don’t they still sound wonderful 50 years on.

This lovingly crafted LP is presented in a snazzy period cover and will appeal to anyone with even a passing interest in the birth of soul or sounds of a certain vintage. Paul Ritchie Shindig
