5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant 17 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
I just got this, dropped on my mat this morning and I haven't stopped listening to it all day and I thought I'd add a quick review that wasn't(quite obviously) written by the distributors. This compilation is absolutely amazing, just about every soul artist worth mentioning was on Atlantic Records, and this proves it. I honestly don't think anyone could not like this cd, there are just too many classics, songs you stumble across and can't quite believe you forgot, songs you didn't know you knew. Seriously, if you've ever liked any soul song ever at any point in your life then buy this cd, it's so good I can't even begin to tell you

5.0 out of 5 stars A Goldmine of greats! 7 Nov 2006
By Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen (real name) TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I got this on the fly one day in a shop, a spur of the moment decision. One I have not regretted. As a novice to this style of music, beyond the Blues Brothers covers and the odd big hit, I was not sure what to expect. To put it bluntly it is a treasure trove of some of the best written and played popular music ever. King Curtis Memphis' Soul Stew is a do it yourself guide which is a must have to any musician who wants to just hear how it is done.

The remastered sound is beyond critism. It just floats out of my system like the band were in the room, wonderful stuff indeed.

Overall one of the best compilations I have yet heard, buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure trove of R+B oldies 3 Nov 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Atlantic was one of the main R+B labels of the twentieth century and this collection gathers together a selection of the label's finest music from the fifties, sixties and seventies. As a UK compilation, it is very ambitious because many of the early tracks are not famous in Britain. Nevertheless, serious music fans will appreciate this treasure trove while the casual Christmas buyers at whom this is primarily targeted will find enough familiar songs to be tempted.
The first CD features Ruth Brown, Clyde McPhatter, LaVern Baker and others that few Brits have ever heard so the compilers wisely included Ruth's original version of Lucky lips, a major UK hit for Cliff Richard. However, Brits will recognize Ray Charles, the Drifters and Ben E King although some of the songs may be unfamiliar.
The second and third CD's feature a high proportion of material that Brits are familiar with tracks by the Drifters, Otis Redding, Booker T and the MG's, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin and the Detroit Spinners. Note - the Detroit Spinners are known simply as the Spinners in America, but there used to be a British traditional folk group called the Spinners, hence the name change for the UK only. Even on these two CD's there are plenty of less famous (to Brits) tracks for serious R+B fans to get excited about.
Thus, this compilation provides plenty of famous R+B tracks for the casual buyer while also providing less famous but equally brilliant tracks for committed fans. All types of buyer are likely to find something here that inspires them to explore R+B oldies further.

5.0 out of 5 stars far from comprehensive, but still great 11 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
This set is far from comprehensive, but then again you' probably need a 10 cd set to even remotely cover the output from this label. Later artists such as Led Zep aren't included; this is very much in the same mold as the Motown Gold cd compilation. There are some glaring omissions; Otis Redding's Hard to handle being strangely absent and there isn't too much early Ray Charles material here ) though it does have the original I've got a Woman, which was recently covered by Kanye West). The three cd's (like the motown gold cd) starts o the first by focusing on 1952-1964 in largely chronological order; and its great to see the development of the basic blues records into the more uptempo beat-based sound. It s a crime to talk about highlights as there aren't any real bad songs. Stand by me and Up on the Roof are obvious numbers, and so is Yakety Yak and also included is Ray Davies (of Kinks fame) favourite song of this period What Id Say. Doris Troy's Just one Look was covered by the Hollies, but the original is arguably the better, while Esther Phillips covers the Beatles' And I love. The second cd 1964-1968 has many songs that feature on the Commitments and Blues Brothers soundtracks; any one who has seen the latter will be instantly familiar with Everybody needs someone to love. Wilson Pickett also is featured here; Mustang Sally, In the Midnight Hour and Land of 1000 dances are all classics. The most popular drifters songs are all here as well and this cd also features two aretha franklin numbers (chain of fools and respect). Bar-kays' Soul Finger was covered by the Blues Brothers and is so obviously the influence of the Ghostbusters theme tune that im surprised Atlantic didn't sue. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this album! 9 Feb 2010
By Jacqui - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An excellent CD with many rarely heard artists and songs. Original artists so this is the best version.
You might not recognise the names or tunes when you read the list, but when you hear it.... it'll all come back.
