Let it be known, there is no soul music on here, if you got it expecting to hear early examples of the soul genre you will be disappointed. Still, the tite of the album is correct, this is the roots of soul, the music that later turned into soul music. As this is musically "virgin territory" for me im not going to reflect over the selection of tunes or artists. All I can say is that I digged the music that was on here.
While liking good sound quality I where never an audiophile but I got no complaints as far as quality goes, the tunes doesn't sound too beat up distorted so im happy with these aspects as well. If you want to take it from someone that is kinda clueless, this is an awesome compilation that will not disappoint.
