HASH(0x89589894) out of 5 stars For whom the Bell souls (ouch...sorry) 30 Jan. 2001
By David Kinney - Published on
Format: Audio CD
William Bell must have felt like the best light heavyweight on a label of heavyweights. Stax in the mid to late sixties was like a GTO firing on all cylinders and William Bell who helped build the machine was left standing in the driveway. Heres a great way for southern soul fans to hear the underappreciated talent of William Bell. "You Don't Miss Your Water" is a country soul standard having been covered by The Byrds, Taj Mahal, and Gram Parsons. This was one of the earliest releases on Stax and hearing Booker T. play country tinged piano is worth the price of the CD alone. Bell is a smooth soulful singer for the most part although he can pull off a rougher Otis Redding sound when it's called for. Somehow, back in the sixties, I missed out on hearing "Everybody Loves A Winner", the standout cut here. Churchy and soulful, heartfelt and moving, Van Morrison might well have used it as a blueprint for the Moondance album. It's that powerful. This music is, alternately, gritty and ethereal, deeply sad and joyful, filled with the exuberance of youth and the dignity of adulthood. All that is my way of saying that the man has soul. He does'nt mind sharing it either.

HASH(0x895898e8) out of 5 stars Epitome of 60s Soul 31 Mar. 2013
By Don E. Marchione - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton founded Stax Records in the early 1960s and established their recording studio in Memphis. Thanks to them, and their roster of excellent studio musicians (Cropper, Dunn, Hayes et al), the Memphis soul sound pleased many. Not all of their artists attained major star status. Among such artists was William Bell, a talented soul singer. I recall that a few of these songs received moderate local radio play, among them: You Don't Miss Your Water, Eloise, It's Happening All Over and Never Like This Before. These songs, all of which are on this CD, are a good representation of 1960s Memphis soul music that is often forgotten or overlooked. These songs don't get played on oldies radio stations. So, if you are a fan of 1960s soul, you might consider going beyond the highly-played artists such as Aretha Franklin and giving this a listen. No 60s soul collection would be complete without it. Highly recommended.

"Everybody loves a winner" and "Eloise" are just two standouts on this great comp by also-ran soul crooner William Bell. Fans of Don Covay, James Carr, OV Wright, et al. should take special note. Not growly or fierce like them, but great songs and delivery. Sort of like Joe Tex without the perpetual GRIN throughout, more melancholy and heartfelt. Beautiful soul classic.

This is one fine album. It is first rate old skool soul at its finest. I have it on steady - rock steady - rotation at home and the kids are lovin' it.

HASH(0x889a24e0) out of 5 stars Click on; Give A Listen to Heartfelt Tunes 21 Feb. 2005
By Eclectic Revisited - Published on
Format: Audio CD
William Bell never really hit the big time; his biggest hit was "You Don't Miss Your Water" in 1961. I can't be sure the one on this package is even the original of that one but it matters not. These sparse lean recordings come from a very special place in time. They deserve a listen; in fact, anything with the name "Stax" on it should not be ignored.
