If you are into early Soul and R&B from the transitional period between R&R and Soul, this collection is for you. Although, counting my age, I'm everything but new breed, I was pleasantly surprised that the proportion of the R&B content that nowadays is called "new breed" turned out to be much higher than the popcorn share. I played this CD many times over. The spacey booklet is brilliant and serves up thorough information about the artists and labels, with tasty pictures of Marva Josie, Dolores Johnson, James Wayne, Valerie Carr and many more to boot. For lovers of label scans: I counted 13 of them.
