Editorial Reviews

This excellent collection is a sister compilation to the recent Dirty Laundry country-soul set, this time focusing on the classic Southern soul tradition of 'cheating' songs. The full range of the ethical spectrum is covered here, from the predatory adulterousness of Ann Peebles's 'Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home' through the other-woman misgivings of Doris Duke's 'If She's Your Wife (You`re Just a Friend)'; and from the bullish protective instinct of Clarence Carter, defending his territory in 'What Was I Supposed to Do?', to the angry desolation of Bobby Blue Bland on the classic 'I Wouldn't Treat a Dog (the Way You Treated Me)'. The standard is high throughout, with two cuts apiece from headliners like Bland, Joe Tex and OV Wright, and one-off gems from the likes of Sandra Phillips, Janet and The Jays, and Ruby Andrews. This pressing comes packaged in a Digipak. Trinkot. 2005.

You can feel the hot summer nights and smell chicken fat dripping in the Delta with this Southern soul compilation centered on the human affliction known as cheatin'. Treasure trove of hard-to-find but golden tracks.
