A ‘lost masterpiece’ of 1960s soul, by one of the finest vocalists of his generation, finally gets a long-overdue UK CD release.


Al Wilson’s “Searching For The Dolphins” was one of the first albums to spotlight the work of renowned songwriter Jim Webb. It includes one of the eareliest versions of Webb’s ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’ and the original version of ‘Do What You Gotta Do’, which Jim wrote especially for Al. · Also featured is Al’s Northern Soul classic ‘The Snake’.

 

 As well as the complete original “Dolphins” album, Ace’s ‘expansion’ also contains all of Al’s non album A’s and B’s for Soul City Records including another Northern Soul favourite ‘Now I Know What Love Is’ and his subsequent recording home of Carousel/Bell Records. With the exception of ‘The Snake’, we believe that none of these recordings have been on UK CD before.

 

Al Wilson went on to become one of the must successful Soul hitmakers of the mid 70s with hits like ‘Show And Tell’ and ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’. As the recordings on this CD prove, the talent was there long before the big hits arrived and we’re very proud to add it to the Kent catalogue. - Ace Records
