Customer Review

on 7 November 2012
I love the way this has been released. The joy of a physical album is in discovering and engaging with the music beyond what goes into your ears, and this does that in fine style. A lovely slipcased book with the three CD's in the back, with nostalgic 45rpm artwork and photo's throughout and a little bit about each song, all written with love and enthusiasm.
Sound quality is lovely, and very even across all the recordings.
The compilation must have taken much care and attention to compile, and it shows. It's only downside is the emphasis on the slower tempo recordings, making tracks like Johnnie Taylor's 'Jody's got your girl and gone' stand out. Uptempo tracks are often the most obvious choices for a compilation, and 'Take me to the River' is a brave and wonderful deviation from the obvious, however a slightly greater variety of tempo would have made this perhaps my favourite Soul compilation, along with Stax's 50th anniversary box set.
