Format: Audio CD
You will have undoubtedly heard many of the tracks on this fine compilation, but this is well worth buying for some of the lesser known tracks featured. The track listing uses the "let's put the most well known tracks first" approach, so it'll be after Linda Lyndell's "What A Man" before you start in on the less familiar.

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

Great value pack of 2 cds, with a total of 51 songs on them. These include a wide range of songs, some by well known artists, many by artists completely unknown to me. For example, there are famous songs such as Otis Redding's "Dock of the Bay" and "Respect" and unknown (at least to me) songs such as "Mr Big Stuff" by Jean Knight or "Candy" by the Astors. Looking down the titles on the back of the CDs, there were a lot of songs (and performers) which I had not heard of. I will have to play this quite a few times in order to get to know the songs. However, this was an inexpensive CD and I enjoy being introduced to hitherto unknown acts. This is good value for money and if you like Soul Music, it is worth buying.

Unbelieveable as all the listings are the correctly anticipated signature cuts you either already love or are waiting to discover.
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.

I always used to think, when it came to Soul music, a lot of 1960's and 1970's artists were premiere for recording great music that will be remembered by others years later. I always thought Motown Records kick-started soul music (Motown Records started up in 1959). But 2 years before, in 1957, Stax Records started up in 1957, and probably started up soul as well. This 2CD set contains 51 reasons to find out more about Stax Records, and memorable tunes such as "Tramp" by Otis Redding & Carla Thomas, because of it's glorious sound, and if you to it closely, you'll find out that Carla Thomas is mocking Otis, by how he looks like a tramp! "Soul Man" by Sam & Dave is a long-time favourite of mine, while "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes is a love song all of its own! Pure soul magic!

A great value anthology - lots of essential/famous tracks and an equal (or greater) number much less well known. With all the fuss about Motown people forget about Stax!

Great CD with a lot of the old favourite Soul songs. It's been playing in my car non-stop since getting it over a week ago. Very well packaged and delivered on time. Thanks very much.
