Format: Audio CD
You will have undoubtedly heard many of the tracks on this fine compilation, but this is well worth buying for some of the lesser known tracks featured. The track listing uses the "let's put the most well known tracks first" approach, so it'll be after Linda Lyndell's "What A Man" before you start in on the less familiar.

Don't let that put you off though, because this album provides a quick run through virtually every major Soul genre there is , Northern from The Astors (Candy), Blues from Little Sonny and Johnnie Taylor, Funk from The Barkays (the 70's version), Deep Soul from Shirley Brown and The Soul Children - the list goes on.

This has obviously been well thought out, and collected together like this it is easy to see the sheer quality that the Stax label represented. Incidentally, there is material here from all the Stax eras, both pale blue and yellow "finger-popping" labels. If you can't afford to get the gargantuan "Complete Singles" releases (see my other reviews for details !!), then start with this - there is so much fine music here

I always used to think, when it came to Soul music, a lot of 1960's and 1970's artists were premiere for recording great music that will be remembered by others years later. I always thought Motown Records kick-started soul music (Motown Records started up in 1959). But 2 years before, in 1957, Stax Records started up in 1957, and probably started up soul as well. This 2CD set contains 51 reasons to find out more about Stax Records, and memorable tunes such as "Tramp" by Otis Redding & Carla Thomas, because of it's glorious sound, and if you to it closely, you'll find out that Carla Thomas is mocking Otis, by how he looks like a tramp! "Soul Man" by Sam & Dave is a long-time favourite of mine, while "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes is a love song all of its own! Pure soul magic!

Unbelieveable as all the listings are the correctly anticipated signature cuts you either already love or are waiting to discover.
No latter day re-records by worn out line-ups patched with vocal replacements palpably too young to have been alive when the originals first aired.
This IS the REAL DEAL.
The collection is a very comprehensive cross section of the genre, the (STAXX) label and the artists themselves. You could shell out some serious lolly for a lick of Issac Hayes original Shaft theme. Getting 40 more from the Staples, Jean Knight, Otis Redding, Arthur Conley et al into the bargin smacks of the sort of generosity usually the preserve of fat blokes in dressed red with an annual fettish for climbing down chimmneys.
The artwork suggests budget. DON'T BE FOOLED you will not be dissapointed, "back in the day" you could trade a good set of wheels for this as a boxed set of vinyl 12's.

Format: Audio CD
This review relates to Performance 38368 released 25 March 2013

This set of 50 sweet soul numbers covers from the beginning of the sounds of soul and through to the early 1960s. Delta Performance have brought together a mix of still well remembered artistes and groups along with some lesser known performers in a 140 minute 2CD set. The sound transfers are very good and the price is very reasonable too. Check this one out if you are "soul curious".
