Format: Audio CD
Bernie Mac's final film (he passed away August 9th, 2008) teams him with Samuel L. Jackson as partners whose soul music careers and friendship dissolve with the departure of their group's lead vocalist, played by real-life soul singer John Legend. The film follows their cross-country trip to a reunion twenty years later to the funeral of their former lead singer, and lines the way with superbly reworked versions of classic soul songs, a couple of original hits from Isaac Hayes and Eddie Floyd, and the deep-soul single "You Don't Know What You Mean (to a Lover Like Me)" from Lee Fields and Sugarman 3. If you hadn't guessed, "s-o-u-l" is spelled here "S-T-A-X," and in addition to classic songs, the album sports the formidable backing talents of original Soulsville players Willie Hall, Charlie Pitts and Ben Cauley, and contemporary vocal talents Legend, Anthony Hamilton, Leela James, Ryan Jones, Sharon Jones and Meshell Ndegeocello.

Chris Pierce and Leela James provide a moving rendition of William Bell and Judy Clay's "Private Number" that's faithful in arrangement, but given an original spark by James' edgier vocal. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings rescue Kenny Rogers' "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" from its kitschy neo-psych origins with the toe-tapping go-go arrangement of a mid-60s spy film. Ryan Shaw provides a winning soul shout on a punchy backbeat-and-horns cover of Rufus Thomas' "Memphis Train," and the film's acting stars rock the mic for both Rufus Thomas' "Boogie Ain't Nuttin' (But Gettin' Down)" and the closing revival of Isaac Hayes "Do Your Thing.

I didn't like this movie, but the soundtrack was great. If you're looking for the "Walk in the Park" song, you can download it for free at the Soul Men movie website. [...]

I love Bernic and Sam Jackson in this movie! Reminiscent of Eddie and Martin in "Life". But disappointed that "A Walk in the Park" was not on the soundtrack. I enjoyed them singing that song at the end of the movie. What happened?

I agree with the second review person. I'm a musician, a funk style bassist at that. What happen to the killer song titled A Walk In The Park? I assume it must be a copyright issue or something legal but if its not then the person responsible for not selecting that song for the album is out of their mind. Its too kill for and when you consider the asking high price for this CD it should have been included which in my opinion would have boosted the sales. somebody please let us know why it was not on the album all that soul and funk and its not there. so baddd!!!

This was a very entertaining movie filled with good music and some real funny moments. It was a little on the vulgar side, but that goes with the "R" rating. Of course this rating is for the soundtrack and not the storyline so I give it 3 stars because as others have mentioned it's missing the best song of the movie, "A Walk In The Park". I assume that it must be legal reasons why it's not on there. That's sad because it's the only song that was complete in the movie and it is a great song. For anyone looking for it you can just search on YouTube and you'll find the excerpt from the movie complete and uncut.

Enjoyed this movie immensly, superbly casted. Everytime I listen to the album I remember scenes from it. Great music, Bernie Mac was a VERY funny guy, craked me up with everything he did, but he can't sing which was even funnier. Suprisingly Sam Jackson can sing pretty well I thought. Anyway, see the movie and everytime you hear the songs it'll bring you back. RIP B-Mac
