Memphis guitar great Steve Cropper counts the ’50s doo-wop, soul, and proto-rock ’n’ roll group the 5 Royales—and particularly songwriter/ guitarist Lowman Pauling—among his greatest influences, and on Dedicated he gets to show his devotion. This impeccably produced disc finds Cropper, a killer house band and a slew of “name” friends tackling 15 Royales songs. Guest singers include Lucinda Williams, John Popper, Steve Winwood, the magnificent Bettye LaVette, Buddy Miller, Brian May, Delbert McClinton, and Dan Penn.
