Sweet Soul Music: 1964

What makes Bear Family's Sweet Soul Music: 31 Scorching Classics from 1964 worth adding to your collection is that it spans across all of the major U.S. R&B labels, negotiating the typical licensing snafus to offer a truly panoramic overview of soul music's epic scope and scale. Moreover, each volume boasts the lavish, thoughtful ...

Moreover, each volume boasts the lavish, thoughtful packaging that is Bear Family hallmark: the mastering is pristine better than has ever been heard on even the major artists and the accompanying booklets are authoritative averaging 60 pages in length, stuffed with color photos, track by track commentary and related recording data. In short, it's the rare retrospective that's as educational as it is entertaining. Additional highlights include Bobby "Blue" Bland's "Ain't Nothing You Can Do," the Temptations' "The Way You Do the Things You Do," and Mitty Collier's "I Had a Talk with My Man."
