"When O.V. Wright died from a heart attack in 1980, it was a tragic end to one of the greatest artistic runs of any American soul singer. Although the 41 year old had scored thirteen Top 50 R&B hits, his success cannot be measured strictly in commercial terms; rather, Wright is revered as one of the greatest, most expressive and accomplished stylists in the idiom's history, ranking right alongside - if not eclipsing - such famed colleagues as Otis Redding and Solomon Burke. This 2CD set presents a complete compendium of O.V. Wright's scorching 45rpm singles, 41 tracks originally released 1965-1976 on Don Robey's legendary Back Beat label and ABC Records. This is an essential cornerstone of any southern soul collection!"
