Led by the title track, Gene Chandler
's biggest hit of the '60s after "Duke of Earl," Just Be True
is a set of period soul tracks including "You Threw a Lucky Punch" (an answer record to Mary Wells
' "You Beat Me to the Punch") and the lame "Duke of Earl" knockoff "Walk on With the Duke." Chandler
's wonderful voice raises all this material to a level unimagined by any but the half-dozen best soul singers out there. The Collectables reissue includes four bonus tracks.
