Reseña de álbum

Sadly, the name Johnny Ace is indelibly linked to his untimely self-inflected demise. This inevitably led the vocalist to being revered as rock & roll music's first casualty. In the wake of the tragedy, Ace's tremendously expressive voice has criminally been all but dismissed. However, as this material demonstrates, Ace provided what is nothing short of a framework for practically every R&B and soul-inspired singer who followed. His legacy is evident throughout his plaintive intonations, as well as the accentuated phrasing that graced his delivery, which was often given slightly behind the backbeat.

That's a pity, for Ace's gentle, plaintive vocal balladry deserves reverence on its own merit, not because of the scandalous fallout resulting from his tragic demise. John Marshall Alexander was a member in good standing of the Beale Streeters, a loosely...
