Luther Vandross Box-set


As mentioned in a previous post, I wrote the liner notes for the Luther Vandross box-set that drops in September. I just got the go ahead from Leo Sacks who (along with Brian Chin and Ray Bardani) produced the set, to post up the song list as it stands right now. The FINAL repertoire is pending final licensing clearances. Here it is:
