On The Soul Of The Ballad, Hank Crawford is backed by The Marty Paich Orchestra. The crossover sensation performs with effortless ease as he plays a dozen flawless ballads. With riveting arrangements, the repertoire includes the standouts "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," "Whispering Glass" and "Time Out For Tears."


AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:


This Atlantic Lp has been repackaged in a classy audiophile reissue Lp by Mobile Fidelity. The soulful altoist Hank Crawford plays a dozen ballads while backed by the Marty Paich Orchestra and the sound reproduction is flawless. Unfortunately the quality of the music itself is not high at all. The repertoire includes more than its share of losers (including "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," "Whispering Grass" and "Time Out For Tears"), the arrangements are quite dull and Crawford does little more than caress the melodies. Definitely a lesser effort.
