The list author says: "When chillin' at the grill, what you put in the CD player is almost as important as what you put in your cooler and on the fire. Here's some mighty tasty, finger lickin' good BLUES and RNB to satisfy any appetite. Call it your "SOUL FOOD SOUNDTRACK"."
"50 gritty stone soul classics straight outta MEMPHIS, including OTIS REDDING, THE STAPLE SINGERS, SAM & DAVE, ISAAC HAYES, and BOOKER T & THE MGS. Put down the MOTOWN and rack up some STAX along with those ribs!"
"One of blues label ALLIGATOR RECORDS' stellar attractions, THE ICEMAN provides cool fuel to beat the heat of the grill. What party-minded listener can resist titles like I AIN'T DRUNK and BLUE MONDAY HANGOVER?"
"Fifteen invitin' items on this HOUSE OF BLUES menu will get your belly rumblin' and your toes tappin'...RED BEANS, ALLIGATOR MEAT, or CHICKEN GRAVY & BISCUITS anyone? LOUIS JORDAN, PROFESSOR LONGHAIR, and BESSIE SMITH are among your dinner guests."
"A gleefully unhinged, gutbucket romp through the entire catalogue of roots rock! COMMANDER CODY & HIS LOST PLANET AIRMEN serve up succulent slabs of ROCKABILLY, BOOGIE 'N BLUES, WESTERN SWING, and even TRUCK DRIVIN' MUSIC with a beat you can eat to."
"The best BLUES label ever, CHESS RECORDS also boasted pioneer rockers CHUCK BERRY and BO DIDDLEY in their able stable, as well as heapin' helpin's of DOO WOP, RNB, and GOSPEL. MUDDY WATERS, LITTLE WALTER, BUDDY GUY, KOKO TAYLOR, and HOWLIN' WOLF are merely the appetizers in this wholly satisfying full course meal."
"This soulful instrumental combo backed up all the STAX RECORDS superstars from SAM & DAVE to OTIS REDDING, simultaneously forging their own delectable masterpieces such as GREEN ONIONS and TIME IS TIGHT. Half the band later joined the BLUES BROTHERS, helping THEM recreate the old STAX sounds."
