Don't let that put you off though, because this album provides a quick run through virtually every major Soul genre there is , Northern from The Astors (Candy), Blues from Little Sonny and Johnnie Taylor, Funk from The Barkays (the 70's version), Deep Soul from Shirley Brown and The Soul Children - the list goes on.
This has obviously been well thought out, and collected together like this it is easy to see the sheer quality that the Stax label represented. Incidentally, there is material here from all the Stax eras, both pale blue and yellow "finger-popping" labels. If you can't afford to get the gargantuan "Complete Singles" releases (see my other reviews for details !!), then start with this - there is so much fine music here
No latter day re-records by worn out line-ups patched with vocal replacements palpably too young to have been alive when the originals first aired.
This IS the REAL DEAL.
The collection is a very comprehensive cross section of the genre, the (STAXX) label and the artists themselves. You could shell out some serious lolly for a lick of Issac Hayes original Shaft theme. Getting 40 more from the Staples, Jean Knight, Otis Redding, Arthur Conley et al into the bargin smacks of the sort of generosity usually the preserve of fat blokes in dressed red with an annual fettish for climbing down chimmneys.
The artwork suggests budget. DON'T BE FOOLED you will not be dissapointed, "back in the day" you could trade a good set of wheels for this as a boxed set of vinyl 12's.
but its a great cd ...
well worth the wait ...but it did miss being a Christmas Present sadly !
