'70s Soul Gold

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
'70s Soul Gold couldn't possibly be the final word on '70s soul, and it's not designed that way -- it's a generous portion of some of the biggest hits of the decade, along with some relatively less-known songs that deserve more attention.

Unless you own and know everything here inside out, the set will either get you started or plug some gaps. Billy Preston's "Outa-Space," Brighter Side of Darkness' "Love Jones," the Floaters' "Float On," and Bell & James' "Livin' It Up Friday Night" are inspired choices that nicely offset the more popular inclusions.
