CD Details

  • Released: September 23, 2008
  • Originally Released: 2008
  • Label: Motown


Product Description:

Arranger: Willie Shorter.
While not as revered as Motown legends Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, or Marvin Gaye, vocalist/saxophonist Junior Walker recorded some of the label's grittiest R&B songs, while also delivering heartrending tracks like "What Does It Take to Win Your Love." The Definitive Collection delivers 18 essential tracks by Walker & His All-Stars, spanning six years on the Motown/Soul label. Though the songs aren't in chronological order, all of the hits from that era are represented, from the first chart entry, "Shotgun" in 1965, through the last "Do You See My Love (For You Growing)" in 1970. Also included are a few singles of equal quality that didn't get as much radio play upon initial release: "Home Cookin'," "Cleo's Mood," and "Way Back Home." While there are other, more exhaustive compilations, such as the 25-track set Ultimate Collection, this is the best concise overview of Junior Walker & the All-Stars' career, containing the most hits on a single disc. ~ Al Campbell

The Great Junior Walker! Music Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- November, 7, 2014

If there was one Motown act that had you movin &groovin at all times it was Jr.Walker & the All Stars! Starting with the million seller "Shotgun" and ending with the soulful "Walk InThe Night, this CD is a must get for all soul and music fans alike! Born Autry Dewalt, Junior Walker was a tremendous sax player as well as an excellent entertainer! What goes unnoticed though is his singing! Listen to What does it take, Road Runner, Way back Home and my favorite These Eyes and see if you can agree that Junior was a pretty good singer! This CD is perfect for any oldies dance party to engage in some "Home Cookin!"
