5.0 out of 5 stars Two More Discs of Soulful Struttin', July 14, 2011
This review is from: The Soul Story, Vol. 6 (Audio CD)
The parade continues in this terrific Time-Life series; with the combined clout of T-L and Rhino, you know you're always getting the original hit renditions, too; no worries about re-recordings.
Among the specialty items on this volume making it most worthwhile:
-- the Isley Bro's cover of Stephen Stills' "Love The One You're With," so well-crafted, yet overlooked;
-- Ben E. King's original of "Don't Play That Song," oft-forgotten after Aretha covered it;
-- King Curtis's build-a-funky-band "Memphis Soul Stew," long before Sly and Archie Bell tried that approach with great success;
-- one of Sam & Dave's lesser-known, but oh so danceable efforts, "You Don't Know Like I Know";
-- a VERY overlooked and underrated Lorraine Ellison's "Stay With Me;"
-- another glorious but underappreciated tune, "Oh No, Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown.
I could go on, but you get the idea. They even give a nod to white-boy pop-soul with Joe Jeffrey Group's "My Pledge Of Love," so there's PLENTY to savor, when you start with Otis, Aretha, Wicked Pickett, Ray Charles, and just keep on keepin' on...
