Simply put, The Essential Lou Rawls is the first of the many compilations tallying the output of this classy, unclassifiable singer that gets it all right. Rawls recorded for a number of labels during his four-decades-plus in the business, but his most important work was evenly split between two of them, Capitol, in the '60s, and Philadelphia International, in the late '70s. While other collections have tended to focus on one period or the other, or to spotlight one aspect of his wide-ranging canon, this two-disc, comprehensive collection covers the gamut. Because the release comes from Sony, which owns the Philly International catalog, it does emphasize that latter segment of Rawls' career perhaps just a tad disproportionately, but all of the most significant Capitol hits have been licensed and are generously represented, including "Dead End Street," "Love Is a Hurtin' Thing," and "Your Good Thing (Is About to End)." Of course, the key later tracks are accounted for, beginning with the set-opening "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine," a number two pop/number one R&B hit for him in 1976, and follow-up hits such as "Groovy People" and 1977's Top Ten "See You When I Git There." The compilers also made sure not to forget Rawls' 1971 Top 20 single for MGM, "A Natural Man." But The Essential Lou Rawls has plenty of space to go beyond the basic hits, and it makes its case for Rawls as one of the era's most endearing and unique vocalists by surveying his catalog and presenting his unmistakable baritone in a number of different settings. While always falling within the R&B/soul sphere, Rawls' sound was informed by and often touched upon jazz, gospel, pop, blues, and dance music; he even foreshadowed rap with spoken interludes long before a genre with that name existed. These 34 tracks, sequenced non-chronologically for a listening experience that is more satisfying than a strictly historical rundown would have been, acknowledge that diversity and present Lou Rawls' many faces in a way that leaves no doubt that he was one of the standout vocalists of his time.

Philly Sound, un nœud pap sur le funk

Ni Motown ! Ni Stax ! La soul de Philadelphie proposera une troisième voix bien à elle. Concocté par la paire Kenny Gamble et Leon Huff, ce genre précurseur du disco fait danser l’Amérique du début des années 70 en la plongeant dans la soie et le champagne.

Betty Davis, la panthère funk

Sans elle, point de Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse ou Janelle Monáe ! Disparue des radars depuis des années, Betty Davis reste la pionnière des soul sisters félines. La déesse funk par excellence. Egalement celle qui offrit l’électricité à un certain Miles Davis, dont elle sera l’éphémère épouse. Mais qui es-tu Betty ?

British blues boom, chronique d’une révolution

Si Joe Bonamassa revient avec “British Blues Explosion”, un an après le “Blue & Lonesome” des Rolling Stones, c’est que le « British blues boom » a été plus qu’un simple courant. L’intérêt des Anglais pour les icônes américaines du genre a engendré une véritable révolution, avec en tête la sainte Trinité de la guitare, formée par Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck et Jimmy Page. À l’aube des années 1960, une fabuleuse déferlante atteint les côtes de la Grande-Bretagne. Et ouvre la voie à de nouvelles dimensions musicales.
