Al Wilson - Spice Of Life

•    Spice of Life is a collection of tracks that span Al Wilson’s entire career

•    Originally released in 2001, this reissue includes the smash hits Show And Tell, Touch And Go and The Snake

Al Wilson has one of the smoothest, most reliable voices in the world of soul music. Best remembered for the #1 pop hit "Show and Tell," he toured the local nightclub circuit in LA before joining the R&B vocal group the Jewels; from there he landed with the Rollers, followed by a stint with the instrumental combo the Souls.

In 1966, Wilson signed with manager Marc Gordon, who quickly scored his client an a cappella audition for Johnny Rivers. The "Secret Agent Man" singer not only signed Wilson to his Soul City imprint, but also agreed to produce the sessions that yielded the 1968 R&B smash "The Snake."

In 1973, Wilson issued the platinum-selling Weighing In -- the album's success was spurred by the shimmering "Show and Tell," a Johnny Mathis castoff that sold well over a million copies. "The La La Peace Song," released in 1974, proved another major hit, and two years later, "I've Got a Feeling We'll Be Seeing Each Other Again" peaked at number three on the R&B chart. With 1979's "Count the Days" Wilson scored his final chart hit and he spent the next two decades touring clubs and lounges.
