By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Arthur Conley is one of the great unsung-heroes of Atlantic's extraordinary soul roster - unfairly overlooked as a poor man's Otis Redding or Wilson Pickett clone. It's true that vocally and stylistically, he was the same (Redding discovered and mentored him) - but what's also true is that his albums and singles contained some blistering Sixties soul - and this cheap and cheerful compilation is a great way of accessing a fair dollop of them.

He made 4 albums for Atlantic/Atco and issued over a dozen UK and US 7" singles. Unfortunately this compilation sticks with the albums only - a shame that as he had many non-album B-sides (some A's too) which are unavailable anywhere (a Rhino Handmade box set please?). The four albums were...

"Sweet Soul Music" (CD Tracks 1, 8, 10, 16 and 20)
1967 USA Stereo LP on Atco SD 33-215 and UK LP on Atlantic 587 069
"Shake, Rattle & Roll" (CD Track 4)
1967 USA Stereo LP on Atco SD 33-220 and UK LP on Atlantic 587 084
"Soul Directions" (CD Tracks 2, 6, 7, 21 and 22)
1968 USA Stereo LP on Atco SD 33-243 and UK LP on Atlantic 588 128
"More Sweet Soul" (CD Tracks 3, 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18 and 19)
1969 USA Stereo LP on Atco SD 33-276 and UK LP on Atco 228 019

The inlay is a useless gatefold slip of paper, but the sound is lovely - very clean and clear - typically excellent Rhino remasters. Here's the breakdown (56:47 minutes):

1. Sweet Soul Music
2. Funky Street
3. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
4. Shake, Rattle & Roll
5. Aunt Dora's Love Soul Shack
6. Hear Say
7. People Sure Act Funny
8. Who's Foolin' Who
9. I Got A Feeling
10. I Can't Stop (No, No, No)
11. Something You Got
12. Stuff You Gotta Watch
13. That Can't Be My Baby
14.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Soul! 22 Feb 2010
By Mr. A. Craddock VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sweet Soul Music & Funky Street by Arthur Conley were two mainstays in the Soul scene during my teenage years. They have both stood the test of time because as I DJ at various Parties I am often asked for these songs even by younger people who have discovered this genre. It does encourage me that this style may once again take over from Rap. Both these two & a lot of other great songs are included here and it is very good.

He is quite a good soul singer. The disc brings you a number of rhythmical songs that are really exciting as exciting is his voice. Happy to have it!
