After Otis Blackwell and Jesse Stone, Leroy Kirkland became perhaps the most prestigious Black R&B composer of the mid-20th century having enjoyed a stellar grounding.

He served with Erskine Hawkins, Cootie Williams and Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey in their orchestras. Coming into his own in 1954, he became a key figure along with Sam 'The Man' Taylor in the Alan Freed Orchestra.

He later wrote for The Clovers, Etta James and Maxine Brown for whom he composed best sellers like 'Good Lovin', 'Stop The Wedding', and 'All In My Mind'.

This first-time release of some of Kirkland's most significant work includes many of his best-known successes.
