Product Description

• Classic southern and deep soul from the great studios of Muscle Shoals, Memphis & Nashville in the classic late 1960s/early 1970s era.

• The first in-depth look on CD of the high quality output of the SSS International Group run by Shelby Singleton.

• Revered soul artists include Bettye LaVette, Johnny Adams, Big John Hamilton and Sam Dees.

• Hits include the anguished soul of ‘Cryin’ In The Streets’ by George Perkins, the soul-blues of ‘Cummins Prison Farm’ by Calvin Leavy, and the country soul of ’Reconsider Me’ by Johnny Adams.

• Compiled and annotated by the veteran team of John Broven and John Ridley.

• Will appeal to everybody who adored the Dave Godin’s ‘Deep Soul Treasures’ series and other releases of that calibre.

Format: Audio CD
Top class compilation from those ultra reliable people at Kent. Some of the tracks have been made available elsewhere, but no matter - this is high quality Southern Soul from first to last.
No set featuring the likes of Johnny Adams, Peggy Scott, Betty Lavette and Reuben Bell can be discounted and this one delivers in fine style. Apart from the aforementioned we have some great moments from Big John Hamilton, Double Soul and Johnny Dynamite. The familiar mingle with the obscure but the quality is always maintained.
Buy with complete confidence.

Solid Professional Roundup of Obscure R&B For Completitsts 22 Sept. 2006
By KC - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's a fine roundup of solid, professional 60's funky & soulful R&B. There are no hidden or forgotten gems, just a solid roundup of regional artists who couldn't quite break out nationwide like Motown, Philly, Stax or Atlantic artists ...

A nice CD for completists but for general R&B fans, they will probably find this CD wanting.

The sound quality is excellent.
