5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to get original soul LP's on CD, 11 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Soul - La Discotheque.. (Audio CD)
Here are the names of the artists and titles of the 20 CD's:

"You'll Never Walk Alone" (1956) - Roy Hamilton
"Greatest Hits" (1966) - Ted Taylor (with extra tracks)
"Why" (1966) - Staple Singers
"Speak Her Name" (1967) - Walter Jackson
"Little Richard's Greatest Hits Recorded Live" (1967) - Little Richard (with extra tracks)
"Bitter Sweet" (1972) - The Main Ingredient
"Ship Ahoy" (1974) - The O'Jays
"The Heat is On" (1975) - The Isley Brothers
"Gratitude" (1975) - Earth, Wind & Fire
"Eargasm" (1976) - Johnnie Taylor
"Jump To It" (1982) - Aretha Franklin
"Visions" (1983) - Gladys Knight & The Pips
"Victory" (1984) - The Jacksons
"Friends" (1985) - Dionne Warwick
"Introducing the Hardline" (1987) - Terence Trent d'Arby
"Love Attack" (1988) - Isaac Hayes
"Never Let Me Go" (1993) - Luther Vandross
"CrazySexyCool" (1994) - TLC
"Chapter 1 : Love, Pain & Forgiveness" (2001) - Syleena Johnson
"Mahogany Soul" (2001) - Angie Stone

I really like these sort of packages: some are All-Music-Guide 5 star CD's (Ship Ahoy by The o'Jays; The Heat is on by The Isley Brothers; Introducing the Hardline by Terence Trent d'Arby; CrazySexyCool by TLC; Mahogany Soul by Angie Stone), but then there some really nice surprises as well: Chapter 1 : Love, Pain & Forgiveness by Syleena Johnson (daugther of Syl Johnson!), and the gospel CD by Staple Singers, the live album by Little Richard, and the pre-soul of Walter Jackson, Ted Taylor and Roy Hamilton -and I really like the Main Ingredient - CD (a completely new discovery for this soul fan). I like the packaging a lot: you get the original LP's in CD format, with a booklet outlining the information of all CD's. Unfortunately, some MAJOR artists are not presented with their best work (for example Aretha Franklin, Isaac Hays, Jacksons, Dionne Warwick), but all in all, this is great value for money! It is my favorite CD-box in the kitchen!

Check out other 20-CD boxes, such as BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL:

Enjoy!
