20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection...
by Brook Benton
Released: Aug 2000
Label: Island Def Jam
Though he doesn't have the name recognition of Sam Cooke or Nat King Cole, Brook Benton's ultra-smooth crooning style definitely resonates with the same fan base. This compilation includes all of his signature ballads (he racked up seven No. 1 hits during the late 1950s /early '60s), showcasing his soft, yet powerful vocals and lush instrumentation.
