5.0 out of 5 stars The Show took far too long to be reissued
This is an outstanding 70s soul album. The first reviewer of this Album is absolutely right. I have had the LP of this for many years and it still gets regular plays. However it is a couple of the bonus tracks that are a revelation for me, the single version of So Tied Up comes across with more emotion than the version that appears as the final track on the LP.

Really wanted more of his old stuff, don't think they are 'Great' tracks, sounds like it's been re-arranged and very Las Vegas cabaret to me. Just my thoughts, I know a lot of people think it's brill.

This is an outstanding 70s soul album. The first reviewer of this Album is absolutely right. I have had the LP of this for many years and it still gets regular plays. However it is a couple of the bonus tracks that are a revelation for me, the single version of So Tied Up comes across with more emotion than the version that appears as the final track on the LP. Signed Miss Heroin, while obviously indebted to James Browns King Heroin, is reminiscent of Norman Whitfield era Temptations. All in all a fantastic release that deserves to be at the top of the list of anyone interested in soul music.

As first two reviews say up there with the absolute very best soul albums of all time. I actually had my vinyl copy transferred to CD years ago but when Atalntic/Rhino released this as part of thier 30 great soul box set I couldn't resist Listen, enjopy and ask what happened to soul like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 2 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Show Must Go On (MP3 Download)
I was aware of the reputation of this album as a 'lost masterpiece of 70's soul' and of the talent of Dees both as a vocalist, mainly through the Ace/Kent CD issues of unreleased demos, and as a song writer via the multitude of hits he's written for other artists. Indeed, I saw him perform in London back in the 90's.

All in all this is a fine album - Dees has a versatile, expressive voice and he delivers songs in a variety of tempos and styles ranging from heartfelt ballads to funky groovers - maybe not quite living up to the reputation it has garnered over the years but nevertheless well worth a place in any soul music collection (albeit in mp3 format) especially at this very reasonable price.

Sam Dees is one of the great soul writer/singers, and this is one of the great soul albums. Anyone with an interest in soul music should own a copy of this album.
