Format: Audio CD
This is a quality budget compilation featuring 18 prime cuts from Stax's 60's and 70's output. Whilst Motown concentrated on the mainstream pop market during the same period (and started their own series of 'Chartbuster' compilation albums back in the late 60s), the music here is rooted in more traditional black American sounds, although there are a couple of out and out pop numbers. Southern Soul, funk, gospel, Rhythm 'n' Blues - it's all here and it all sounds so very good. Consisting of some well known classics ('Theme from Shaft'; 'Mr Big Stuff') and lesser known gems, this, like the other five compilations in the series, is near essential listening for anyone interested in the sound of 60's & 70's black America.
