This review is from: Take Me to the River: A Southern Soul Story, 1961-1977 (Audio CD)
A bit pricey for 3CD's but a marvellously thoughtful collection, nonetheless - one of the best I've heard. Very well-sequenced - better than the (rightly revered) Dave Godin comps. A fine mixture of the familiar and the less so. Too many standouts to mention but particular favourites include the magnificent 'I'm Through...' by Bobby Womack and Jarvis Jackson's 'Something I Never Had' (with the backing track even more compelling than the vocal). Nice to hear Quiet Elegance's version of 'You've Got My Mind Messed Up' rather than the more familiar James Carr version. All-in-all, this really is a first-rate effort. Get it before it disappears.
