Good follow up on 20 CD `Perfect Soul Collection Box`,

This is the list of 20 CD's, mostly soul music:
01. Aretha Franklin "The Tender, The Moving, The Swinging Aretha Franklin"
02. Mtume "Juicy"
03. LaBelle "Nightbirds"
04. Major Lance "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um"
05. Marvin Gaye "Midnight Love"

13. The Jacksons "Destiny"
14. Earth, Wind & Fire "That's The Way Of The World"
15. The O'Jays "Back Stabbers"

17. Luther Vandross "Never Too Much"
18. Maxwell "Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite"
19. Amel larrieux "Infinite possibilities"
20. Shuggie Otis "Freedom Flight"
Some are great and one of the artists' best work (and receive 4 to 5 stars from All Music Guide), such as Angie Stone (Stone Love), Isley Brothers (3+3), O'Jays (Back Stabbers), Maxwell (Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite), Macy Gray (On How Life Is), Sly (There's a Riot Going On), etc.
Some others are great artists all right, but with some of their less important work (such as Aretha Franklin).
If you like these sorts of boxes, you might want to have a look at the other options:
- the current box is a sort follow-up on the 20 CD 'Perfect collection of soul BOX':
- there is one with 20 Hiphop CD's: the HIPHOP-BOX:
- and the 20 CD-box with soul music by artists from Atlantic Records:
I like these boxes as they give you the old-fasioned sensation of putting on an LP, because of the original artwork.
