With a voice that shone with class and sophistication, vocalist Sam Fletcher was known as "The Man With The Golden Voice" to his many fans - the biggest of which included Nat King Cole, Aretha Franklin and Nancy Wilson, to name a few. Fletcher rose to fame after a series of 1960's television appearances and now legendary nightclub engagements that ignited L.A.'s live jazz scene. His classic 1967 album, "The Look Of Love - The Sound Of Soul," a collection of standards and pop tunes that showcased his impeccable phrasing and rich tone, should have propelled Fletcher to international stardom, but a highly publicized heroin bust in the late 1960's burst the bubble of his squeaky clean image and severely hampered his impending mainstream success. Although he eventually cleaned up his act, he unfortunately lost the momentum that surely would have propelled him to international success. His full length LPs are now highly valued collector's items and rumors abound of a film project based on his life. After many years of languishing in obscurity, his classic 1967 recording finally makes it's debut in the digital domain, newly remastered and expanded to include a rare "B" side from 1969, Sam's beautiful version of the late 60's pop classic "More Today Than Yesterday." All selections newly remastered.
