A Little Soul

I’ve decided that my music collection is woefully low on soul. Specifically, Stax/Volt stuff. I’m talking about Otis, Sam & Dave and Booker T & The MGs, to say nothing of the stuff I don’t know about yet. There’s a Stax box set that I can get for not too much through Columbia House, but I’m not sure if that might not be a little much for getting started with. Surely there’s some decent definitive one or two-disc compilations out there? Suggestions? I’ll probably have to go back and pad my Motown inventory as well.

This has nothing to do with soul whatsoever – Come on fhqwhgads, everybody to the limit!

    Hitsville USA: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971 is a great place to start. Buy it for the bassist in you if nothing else.

    http://…/ has the second and third of the three Stax/Volt Singles boxes (10 discs each!) – worth using up the 50 free to make a dent in them, and worth ten or twenty bucks to snap the rest of them up (the MP3’s are only 128’s though – only caveat I can think of) Highly, highly recommended.

    Thanks ever so much for the Lush EC cover, BTW.
