Rather confusingly, all of the Gene McDaniels retrospectives on the market use variations of his hit "A Hundred Pounds of Clay" as their titles. McDaniels ' rich, expressive vocals add a depth and dignity to songs like "Take Good Care of Her" and "Angels in the Sky" that other singers may not have been able to provide, but unfortunately much of the material still ends up sounding rather stuffy.
100 Pounds Of Clay - Various - Reggae In The Grass of "It's All in the Game," "'Till There Was You," "You Belong to Me," and especially Dee Clark 's "Raindrops" seem Something Wonderful Happens In Summer - Frank Sinatra - The Capitol Years they should be a perfect fit for McDanielsbut the overwrought arrangements and sleepy tempos render them nearly as stultifying as the rest of the collection.
On the bright side, "Send for Me" is one of the catchiest of the lesser-known songs here, while "Make Me a Present of You"'s sly sultriness helps it stand out. Frustratingly, this collection features more of McDaniels ' best-known songs than the more entertaining Collectables retrospective A Hundred Pounds of Clay: The Best of Gene McDanielswhich doesn't have as many hits but is more in keeping with the sound that won him fans.
