This two-disc anthology is a guaranteed dance party in a box. It's nice to have Motown, Stax, and Atlantic artists all in a single collection, along with independents like Curtis Mayfield
. If the compilers could have found a way to include some Philly soul, and maybe some Al Green
and Hi Records, it would have been just about perfect. As it is, there's not a bad cut here, and once this set gets in your player, its bound to stay for a while.
