Editorial Reviews

Of all the soul singers who got their first hits during the 1960s, Joe Simon proved to be one of the most adaptable to the sweeter and slicker sounds of the 1970s. This 23-track compilation, covering his output at the Spring label, is not necessarily the best Simon anthology, omitting as it does his less elaborately produced work of the 1960s, which some find preferable to his Philly soul outings. It does, however, feature all his major pop hits of the era -- "Drowning in the Sea of Love," "Power of Love," "Your Time to Cry," "Get Down, Get Down," and "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" -- as well as a number of singles that only made a strong impression on R&B audiences, like his cover of Kris Kristofferson's "Help Me Make It Through the Night." As usual with this sort of overview, the music gets more tedious the further you get into the disco era, but it's certainly a good pickup for those who like their soul with a bow tie on it. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Southern Soul from an Underrated Talent December 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
THE SPRING YEARS is an almost-perfect Joe Simon compilation documenting his most successful years with the Polydor-distributed Spring Records. The sound is great and the liner notes are pretty detailed. However, Simon's last top 20 r&b hit is missing (1978's "Love Vibration") while "You Don't Have To Play No Games" is here although it stalled at #62 on the r&b charts. Had "Games" been replaced by "Vibration", this compilation would have included all of Simon's top-20 r&b hits with Spring.

4.0 out of 5 stars RYTHYM & BLUES FUNKY MONKEY'S LISTENING CORNER July 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought the CD as a gift for my father. He can't listen to it enough. It's a great day when one can find true classic r&b albums at their finger tips. (And the price isn't anything to sneeze at for an added bonus.)

I love Joe simon's music and performers. He leaves a great message in his singing. He is from the old school.
