    The album itself isn't especially surprising (aside from a few vocalist choices that work out). If you're familiar with Cropper and with the "5" Royales, Dedicated is probably what you would expect to hear.

    Cropper stays fairly faithful to the originals. [Oct 2011, p.83]

    The songs rise or fall with their singers--thumbs up for Bettye LaVette, Dan Penn, B. B. King and Shemekia Copeland--and the performances are stalwart enough. But they can't come close to the rip-snorting gusto of the "5" Royales nearly half a century ago.
