3.0 out of 5 stars AVERAGE 60's SOUL JAZZ 21 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The fact that some of the tracks on these two albums have been sampled by hiphop acts, and/or turned up on various compilations have fuelled their cult status.
This double Cd couples Marlena Shaw's two albums for Cadet and throws in 10 extra tracks, including "Wade in the Water" and "Mercy, Mercy Mercy". It is a generous compilation and it is nicely packaged.
Of the two albums "The Spice of Life" is the best. It includes "Liberation Conversation" and the fantastic "Woman of the Ghetto" which have turned up on GTV's "Blaxploitation" compilations. These two tracks, together with a storming version of Ashford/Simpson's "California Soul" are the greatest moments on these two CD's.
"The Spice of Life" is a good album, and at times it is excellent, but "Out of Different Bags", which is the other half of this set, is mostly uninspired soul jazz. Even if Shaw is an excellent singer, it is a fairly dull affair.
Despite the fact that this double CD is nicely priced, I'd suggest you to go for the "Anthology" Cd instead. It includes all the best tracks from this set and some other great tracks Shaw recorded after she had left the Cadet/Chess label.

5.0 out of 5 stars just excellent... 29 Mar 2010
By DARRYL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
ok .. well yall know ive been on the nacy wilson tip , getting almost everything she made, including exports , stuff never released .. i love it! , well im on the same vibe as that for miss marlena shaw. ok .. stat from the beginning, and this cd is just that. She started with out od different bags, her very first, and of course i heard the snipets, and loved them so got the two for one deal. so these two cds are very very good. they really remind me of nancy wilson, their voices are very simular. anyway the cuts are very jazzy and soulful, marlena just got that soul grit to her voice unlike nancy with smooth and silky. anyweay get this its very good to listen to. trust me !
