Everybody Loves A Good Time!: The Best Of Major Lance

Compil. US 1995 on Epic label
R&B/Soul (Soul)

Printed on back cover: "With silky and soft, soulful vocals, Major Lance rose to stardom through the 1960s as the OKeh label's top-selling R&B artist. Performing a wealth of Curtis Mayfield-penned gems, Lance's smooth, evocative style earned him a doctorate from the hallowed school of Chicago Soul. That rich legacy shines as never before in this, the definitive collection of his finest recordings." Legacy's Rhythm & Soul Series Director: Adam Block.
