Although you can't fault the music and those fine, fine southern horns if you have, as I have, all ready bought ACE/Kent two CD retrospective of Clarence Carter Fame 45s and the Ace/Kent reissue of Jimmy Hughes early Fame releases you have well over half the track listed all ready. You are still left with some gems such as Arthur Conley's 'In the Same Old Way' and 'I Can't Get You Out Of My Mind' from Art Freeman but of course not all the other cuts are that good and those such the offerings by Spooner Oldham and Terry Woodford have not fared very well in the intervening years. Its a bit of a dilemma when a company over milks the milch cow as to how to rate a release. As I have all ready bought the three CDs by Hughes and Carter and money is always finite my feeling is that for me this is an OK release.

If you like southern soul this is a great 1st part to The Fame Story a generous 52 Tracker at a low price. The First 26 singles and B sides. The artists include Dan Penn, Arthur Conley,Jimmy Hughes and Clarence Carter and many more. A brilliant cd.
