The main review says that these recordings are from the late 60s, but that's not entirely accurate. Yes, there are a handful of tracks on this compilation from the late 60s, but most tunes are from the early to mid 1970s. And indeed, this was a very creative and productive period for Johnny Otis, a music guru who sadly never got the kudos he deserved, considering the enormous contributions he gave to the music business. The amount of talent that he signed, produced, played with, and recorded is very impressive. You won't find one of his most famous finds, Etta James, on here, but there are many "no name" artists who will turn your head --- and ears --- when you hear this CD. Plus, his son Shuggie Otis stars on many tracks, including his famous "Strawberry Letter 23". That track, can also be found on several Shuggie collections and there were a few more songs on here that I had on various Soul compilations, plus "Cool Ade" by Preston Love, from his short but smokin' "Omaha Bar B-Q" album, a set that also featured Shuggie on guitar. Stylistically, this collection covers a wide range of R&B styles from the period: soul, funk, jazz (some fine Vibes playing by Johnny), and blues. You'll find male and female vocalists, hot guitar playing, plus a few instrumentals. A great mix. This is an outstanding compilation of music, plus the liner notes and booklet contain a generous amount of information. Well worth the money for this import disc.
