Focusing mainly on the sixties but straying either side of that arbitrary divide, this series brings together many classic songs from the golden age of R and B. The series largely but not entirely avoids Motown, but plenty of other compilations are available devoted to Motown.

Some of the songs here are more famous in Britain via cover versions, but you'll find the original versions here. Shout (Isley Brothers) became a UK hit for Lulu; it was her debut hit in 1964. Piece of my heart (Erma Franklin) became famous in the UK via Janis Joplin's cover, though I think the original has also charted in the UK. I'd rather go blind (Etta James) became a UK hit for Chicken Shack, whose lead singer ended up as Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac. Talking of Fleetwood Mac, they started life as a blues band and are represented her by their cover of Need your love so bad (Little Willie John), which is typical of their blues music. It's in his kiss (Betty Everett) was a big UK hit in the sixties, but has also been a big hit for Linda Lewis in the seventies and Cher in the nineties.

Rescue me (Fontella Bass), Drift away (Dobie Gray), In the midnight hour (Wilson Pickett) and Stand by me (Ben E King) are among the tracks here that were UK hits for the original artists.

Bought this because I had a previous one which I wore out when I used to do the school run,all of my 3 children know all the songs on this album probably more than their French grammar as it was played most mornings in the rush hour on the school run.

I bought this for someone else who had the original cassette version but wanted it on CD.
As they liked the cassette version I'm sure they liked the CD.

At the price it was offered it was very good value.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. Thompson on 17 Mar. 2012
I suspect that the film Blues Brothers ignited an interest from record companies to put out music to a new audiance of blues/soul fans.
This selection features mostly male artists, although room is made for Erma Franklin, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Fontella Bass, Betty Everett and Ann Peebles.
Erma Franklin's powerfully sung (Take A Little) Piece Of My Heart is matched by Etta James' hateful I'd Rather Go Blind, while Fontella Bass call is clear in Rescue Me.
Booker T And The MGs' Green Onions is the only instrumental track, other classics include In The Midnight Hour by Wilson Pickett and Stand By Me from Ben E King.
It's good to hear Fleetwood Mac's need Your Love So Bad and a pleasant suprise that Dobie Gray's Drift away is included, sometimes he's known as a country singer!
It looks like this can obtained at a budget price, so don't delay!
