José Feliciano, Souled

From the Second Chance Shoppe, October 2011

Overall too ornate in the vocal styling, which doesn't equate to emotion in the storytelling.

Side 1 is barely tolerable, with the possible exception of "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight."

Side 2 has "Hitchcock Railway" grooviness and "Hi-Heel Sneakers" sultriness, helping lift the album... but not enough to keep it from going back where it came from.
