From there, he went on to win Grammy Awards for his triple-platinum collaboration, with Linda Ronstadt in 1967. Throughout the decades, Neville's achievements and success have continued to grow while his distinctive voice remains pitch-perfect. In 2012, Blue Note Records released Neville's My True Story, an album which revisits the music that he grew up on, featuring twelve classic doo-wop numbers.
