Bring It on Home ... The Soul Classics
REVIEWED BY RALPH NOVAK
CRITIC'S CHOICE
R&B-POP

On his latest, Neville applies his wondrously vibrant voice to soul classics like "You Send Me," "My Girl" and "People Get Ready." While imbuing these gems with his own style, he also gives a nod to the artists who made them hits: There's a little Otis Redding in "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay," Brook Benton in "Rainy Night in Georgia" and Ben E. King in "Stand by Me." Mavis Staples joins in on a powerful version of the Staple Singers' "Respect Yourself," while Chaka Khan turns up on a rousing rendition of "Let's Stay Together."
