Released:
Label: Rhino
Ninety-one tracks deep and five hours long, this may be the desert island comp for funk and soul fans. From the New Orleans R&B of Allen "Trousie" Toussaint, to the funk universalism of Earth, Wind and Fire, this comp touches nearly all the bases. There are seminal jams such as the Bar-Kays' "Soul Finger," but much of this focuses on rare gems from many of soul's biggest names. Perhaps its greatest virtue, though, is the attention paid to lesser known acts, which makes this collection as much a beginning as it is an end.
