This all-new set from Southern Routes presents a complete collection of the Godfather of Soul’s formative recording for Federal Records with The Famous Flames in late 1950’s. This import 2LP or 2CD package features all of JB’s early, explosive hits including “Please, Please, Please”, “Try Me” and “Think”; thirty-six dynamic Rhythm and Blues gems. Essential!!
