Complete Stax/Volt Soul Singles, vol 3
(Fantasy/Stax 10SCD-4415-2 US-94 800:-)

The third and final chapter of the definitive collection of the great Memphis soul label Stax focuses on the early-mid 1970s; a time when the label was enjoying remarkable chart successes, yet was on the verge of its dramatic denouement. Vol. 3 contains all soul singles issued by Stax/Volt during those years and includes some of the biggest and best-loved hits of the day as well as a number of little-known gems by both major and less familiar artists.

This 10-disc set features 213 tracks and a booklet with a 47,000-word essay by Stax historian Rob Bowman.
Franklin, Aretha - Queen of Soul
(Rhino R2-71063 US-92 225:-)

"Queen of Soul" trumps all other collections of Aretha's recordings for Atlantic by adding dozens of album tracks to a selection of epochal singles ranging from "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)" and "Respect" to "Spanish Harlem" and "Rock Steady".

Aretha is emotional, impassioned, triumphant, wistful, but always truthful about her condition and our own.
Johnson, Syl - Complete Mythology
(Numero Group NUM032 US-16 800:-)

A really really amazing package – the full story of the early years of Syl Johnson – one of the funkiest soul singers to ever come from Chicago!

Syl's music has become the stuff of legend over the years – initially collected in rare funky 45s and two even rarer albums – then sampled heavily.

This 4CD box set with booklet filled with vintage photos, personal recollections by Syl, and some great Numero writing – not to mention much-needed details on the recordings within. All packed in a 12" x 12" hardcover folder with slipcase.
Step by Step - I always wanted to be in the Band!
(Victor VICP-64287 Jap-08 225:-)

Quite possibly the greatest soul band ever to come out of Milwaukee – and a tight little ensemble who've got a really great sound! The overall feel of their work is a bit hard to peg – as the group are equally great at mellow midtempo group numbers as they are at tighter, clubbier tunes that snap with a bit more of a horn-heavy sound – and throughout the record there's a really playful feel that shows that whatever the sound, whatever the setting, these guys just had a heck of a great time working with each other! That quality can be heard especially well on the title track "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" – a great little number that's almost an updating of the TSU Tornadoes sound for the 70s – but the whole set's great, and other tracks move into some great super-dope production that we really love! Titles include "I Am A Lonely Man", "People", "Cool Days Are Out Of Style", "I Ain't Never Gonna Let You Go", and "Cash Money".
