There is still a lot of untouched soul gold in the Stax vaults. To prove it, this month Ace present two new projects featuring some of the Memphis label's premier female vocalists. We're The Soul Girls brings together the complete recordings of the company's two first ranking girl groups of the mid 60s.

This is top-drawer Stax from start to finish and will be welcomed by all lovers of the music that came out of the label's McLemore Avenue studios during the heyday of Southern soul.
