5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely First class 60's R & B / Soul, 14 May 2009

This review is from: Go Go Power: The Complete Chess Singles 1961-1966 (Audio CD)
In truth, I only bought this CD for the Classic "Go Go Power" track, a fast paced R&B tune that I have been after for many years with no success, until now - thanks to Kent records.

For those who dont know many of Sugar Pies songs, then this CD has the lot, from the classics, In The Basement, Soulful Dress, I Dont Wanna Fuss and Go Go Power, to the more bluesy side of the Chess output. What I wasnt expecting when I played the CD was the other tracks that at volume 13 in the car sounded fantastic - Slip In Mules(a reply to Tommy Tuckers Hi heel Sneakers)and Witch For A Night - now we are talking !! The other tracks are all superb "Use What You Got", "Mama Didnt Raise No Fools" etc etc. Overall I am very pleased with this CD

As usual with Kent releases the quality, detail and packaging are outstanding - and the whole CD mixes moody blues ballads with Sugar Pies deep gritty vocals.

I fully recomend this CD if you like your R&B mixed with Soul and a little Blues on the Side.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, 20 July 2009

This is the best Sugar Pie DeSanto compilation ever. The best tracks are: In The Basement Part 1 [with Etta James] Soulful Dress and Go Go Power. I bought it for the extremely rare: In The Basement Part 2. The find is the previously unreleased Witch For A Night which is terrific. Although she was in the shadow of Etta James who was the more powerful singer, her own work is soulful and danceable in its own right. Enjoy!

Brilliant! If you like the tracks of early Tina Turner then you will appreciate this album. How did I miss her in the sixties?
