TOP 500 REVIEWERon 7 May 2013
Millie Jackson is a soul legend. Her recording career has embraced over 40 years. Her emotions and delivery on the heartaches of 'adulterous life' peaked with the bold and brilliant 'Caught Up/Still Caught Up' albums. Compilers of this collection, Ady Croasdell and comprehensive sleeve writer Sean Hampsey, took five years putting this together. 'Best of the best' are always controversial and rarely reflect the original sources. This is as near as they come. Never one to shirk controversy in putting her views forward on record whether in song or rap, this album is a representation of a supreme soul singer raucously ripping out ballads. Picking out highlights would necessitate quoting all 20 tracks. Personally, I shiver at 'There You Are', 'I Can't Say Goodbye', 'A Love Of Your Own', 'If Loving You Is wrong', 'It Hurts So Good', 'It's Gonna Take Some Time'. Stop now before I highlight them all! These are stories in song. Short and relevant in observations of relationships often with spoken introductions.

This is a much-welcomed reminder, if ever needed, of Millie Jackson as a passionate singing voice of strident soul and blues with so much emotion. I am not one for comparison but as a conveyor of heart-rending ballads, an addition to the fabulous Gladys Knight, Etta James, and, of course, Otis Redding and others spring to mind. If you have no Millie Jackson and love soul, this is a great place to start. I love jazz vocalists and Millie Jackson is the Betty Carter of soul. Enough praise indeed.

I have always liked Millie Jackson's voice, 'back in the day'. Saw this cd reviewed in The Times, great reviews, so I bought it. Glad I did, every tune is a soul classic, her voice sounds great. A good cd to have in your collection . Very laid back.

I used to listen to MIllie Jackson thrity years ago at university. I bought this as a trip down memory lane and Ihave to say, I had forgotten just how good her voice is. The album is excellent

Good as it goes but it's missing her best ballad of all. The magnificent Do what makes you satisfied. Such a shame.
