 CLYDE McPHATTER
Clyde McPhatter was one of the most influential RandB singers of the '50s and early '60s.
McPhatter was idolized by Black audiences as few singers before or since ever were, and for almost 15 years helped define rhythm and blues and its transformation into soul.
McPhatter was a big enough star that he was essentially the focus of two LP releases on Atlantic in the same year, unheard of for a Black artist in those days, when RandB albums (apart from Elvis' first RCA long-players, which were considered RandB) didn't sell in serious numbers.

MGM signed McPhatter in May ’59 but the move was a disaster for Clyde and he was never quite happy with the results there, they lacked 'feel' and could not create enough interest to put Clyde where he wanted to be - on the charts.

One of my favorite Clyde McPhatter songs from this period is 1957's “No Love Like Her Love.” In 1957 I couldn't figure out which of the two girls he was singing to (“pronoun problems,” as Daffy Duck would say), and years later, I still can't.

Volume Three focuses on the years after McPhatter left and Jackie Wilson took over lead vocals and led them in a more consciously pop direction.
But "Volume Two - 18 Hits" is before that sad fate, when Clyde McPhatter, the greatest lead vocalist in rock history was at his very best, mining all avenues of song in his inimitable fashion.
One listen to "Don't Leave Me This Way" (sort of a reworking melodically of their hit "I'd Be Satisfied"), "Yours Forever", or "Deep Sea Blues" and any questions as to the practicality of buying a second Dominoes collection will have been answered.

 Love Ballads - Clyde McPhatter, Music Downloads - Online
Review: One suspects that Atlantic Records had trouble actually assembling this album, based on the differences between the content and the title.
As with most of Atlantic's early LPs, Love Ballads was comprised of existing singles and B-sides, in this case going back to Clyde McPhatter's days with the Drifters.
The slower songs are the direction that McPhatter preferred, aiming at a more sophisticated R&B audience and hoping for a crossover into pop circles -- considering that most of the material dates from 1956-1957, it's all surprisingly sophisticated and groundbreaking in its time.

Clyde McPhatter : Clyde McPhatter - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
McPhatter's final original album for Atlantic is a must-hear release, some of the sweetest and brightest R&B of its period, a little more balanced and unified in its sound than its predecessor with more emphasis on beat.
Somewhere midway between them are "Gone" and "Everyone's Laughing," stripped-down R&B ballads with a beat, and "I Can't Stand Up Alone" is a glorious flashback to McPhatter's roots as a gospel singer.

 CLYDE MCPHATTER
Precious few 1950s RandB vocalists wielded the influence of Clyde McPhatter: his melismatically-charged delivery altered the entire future of the idiom, both as lead singer of the Drifters and later on his own.
But until now, his 1965-1967 output for Amy Records has been totally overlooked.
Sundazed rectifies that injustice by gathering all ten of Clyde's Amy-issued tracks — including four recorded in Muscle Shoals — plus four previously unissued alternate takes for a revealing package proving Clyde still had plenty in his tank during the mid-'60s!
