Original CD Liner Notes:
The wheel has come full circle! What goes around comes around! Rudy Ray Moore, Dolemite. The Human Tornado. The chap who put rap on the map. The man with the voice of cashmere here at last returns to his rhythm and blues roots!

The world knows Rudy Ray as the pull-no-punches King of X-Rated comedy, but few know his lusty musical side. When rhythm & blues was young and rock 'n' roll was still the province of black America, Rudy was out there blazing the trail, making records with the best of 'em.

In his early days, he was Prince DuMarr, the original "turban-ated" one, working clubs and juke joints as a singer in a revue headed by sax legend Big Jay McNeely. In the middle Fifties, Rudy Ray waxed six r&b tracks for the legenday Cincinnati-based King/Federal label. Later, he would hook up with the traveling entourage of Huey "Piano" Smith and the Clowns featuring his close friend, Bobby Marchan. Together, they would help write Huey's classic, "Don't You Just Know It."

As the Fiftes rolled over into the Sixties, Rudy Ray took up his own banner, writing, performing and producing his own records, putting together the backing groups like the Ray Tones, the Seniors, and the Fillmore Street Rebellion. Tracks like "Hurts Me To My Heart," "Hully Gully Papa," and "Rally in the Valley."

Then came the comedy turn with "Eat Out more Often." The unprecedented success of his hit album took Rudy's career off in a whole new direction, and soon his glorious r&b history faded into the past.

Today, with an incredible catalog of comedy albums and films under his belt, and sparked by acclaim for the recent re-release of his Fifties and Sixties r&b recordings, Rudy Ray has once again turned his considerable talents toward music. In this CD, he of the cashmere voice salutes his own creations and early heroes. Curtis Mayfield, Bill Doggett, Bobby Marchan, Brook Benton, Dinah Washington, Ray Charles. Even Country star Jimmy Dean. They're all here one way or another.

Rudy Ray Moore is "Feeling Good" and it "Don't Go No Farther" as this manly "Grand Diva" shows he's "Got What It Takes." He wants you to know he "Can't Stop Loving You," so he shakes his "Booty Green" because the man has a "Need to Belong." When he can't sing he says, "It Hurts Me To My Heart," so "Let's Do It Again" because in the end, we're "Only Here For A Little While."
