This is the first of two volumes that will eventually reissue all of this extremely important Southern soul artist's singles for the Ko Ko label, originally released between 1967 and 1978. Luther Ingram, who died just a few weeks ago, has never been properly represented on CD before now, apart from a few inconclusive "Greatest Hits" sets. This is an oversight that Ace/Kent is now beginning to correct, with more to come before the year is over. This volume features all the hits that lead up to Ingram's multi-platinum success with the original hit version of '(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to Be Right' in 1972 - to be featured on volume two. Highlights of this package include 'Ain't That Lovin' You' (# 6 R & B/# 45 Pop) and the original version of 'My Honey And Me' (# 19 R & B/ # 55 Pop).ACE2007
