Overview

For soul newcomers interested in a wide-ranging overview, this 18-track collection from Relativity is tailor-made. Starting with the Marvelettes' early-'60s smash "Please Mr. Postman," the selection includes rough-hewn Southern soul (Eddie Floyd's "Knock on Wood"), New Orleans-bred R&B (Aaron Neville's "Tell It Like It Is"), smooth Chicago harmonies (the Impressions' "We're a Winner"), and some sunshine funk (Sly & the Family Stone's "Everyday People"). And in case you're wondering, heavyweights like James Brown, Solomon Burke, and the Isley Brothers are called in to fill the gaps. Additionally, the disc forgoes the usual heavy rotation of Motown, Atlantic, and Stax stars to bring you a mix of both marquee names (Jackie Wilson) and fringe singers (Mattie Moultrie). A fine soul sampler that's familiar enough for mainstream friends, yet hip enough for purists.
