The Best of Sue Records

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
As much as any 18 song collection could, this single CD presents a decent cross-section of the New York-based label's biggest hits. The range of material includes the biggest or best-known hits by Ike & Tina Turner "It's Gonna Work Out Fine," "A Fool In Love", Inez Foxx "Mockingbird", Baby Washington "A Handful of Memories," "That's How Heartaches Are Made", Bobby Hendricks "Itchy Twitchy Feeling", the Poets "She Blew A Good Thing", Wilbert Harrison "Let's Work Together", and Jimmy McGriff "I've Got A Woman", among others.

The sound is excellent, probably derived from the same body of masters that EMI assembled to put together its own Sue Records Story box that same year, and the annotation is decently detailed, at least where the major acts are concerned, if a little unstructured.
