All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The first volume of this Ace Records series, compiling some overlooked and obscure collisions of soul, funk, disco, and jazz from the late '60s and 1970s, is actually not as good as the second installment. Still, hats off are in order for getting a relatively solid and sonically consistent anthology of this genre together, though a few of the outings are standard-issue '70s funk-soul-jazz fusion.

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The first volume of this Ace Records series, compiling some overlooked and obscure collisions of soul, funk, disco, and jazz from the late '60s and 1970s, is actually not as good as the second installment. Still, hats off are in order for getting a relatively solid and sonically consistent anthology of this genre together, though a few of the outings are standard-issue '70s funk-soul-jazz fusion. Isaac Hayes with his cover of "Use Me" is the most famous artist, the lineup being tilted toward some of the finer moments of funk-soul journeymen like Caesar Frazier and Ripple. Some left-field highlights, though, are Tammi Lynn's previously unreleased interpretation of "Light My Fire," embellished by some mighty suggestive groans; Cal Tjader's truly peculiar take on the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter," with some space-age electronics and wah-wah guitars; and Dave Hamilton's previously unissued, soundtrack-quality eerie "Marriage Is a State of Vibes," with its lean funk strut. Veterans of the '50s rock and R&B scene make unexpected updates into the psychedelic soul era on Preston Love's "Chili Mac" and Preston Epps' "Afro-Mania," while the Sonny Constanzo Big Band's "New Beginning" sounds in places like a TV pit orchestra suddenly getting a whole lotta soul.
