Clyde McPhatter was one of the great lead R&B singers of the 1950s. His emotive high tenor voice led his vocal group, The Drifters, to tremendous popularity. His subsequent solo career brought him pop chart cross-over success, and a career that prefigured the development of both the rock and roll and soul genres. The 1960s brought modest success after McPhatter left Mercury, including a performance album entitled Live at the Apollo, but his audience base was clearly dwindling. Like other American R&B artists, he revivified his career with a move to the . where many of his earlier records were only then being released. After enjoying the fruits of Britain’s R&B-based rock revolution, he returned to the United States in the early 1970s and released an album for Decca Records, Welcome Home. The response was less than welcoming, and McPhatter slid into despondence.
