A great compilation from Atlantic, culled from their early 70s releases with some tracks from subsidiary labels like Alston, Atco and Niktom. Unlike a lot of promotional compilations, this set goes less for the big names and more for artists who ended up getting relegated to the sidelines, but who are sought after today. We're not going to try and tell you this is the total black experience in sound, but it's still a pretty darn nice collection. 13 tracks in all: "Angel" and "Sister From Texas" by Aretha Frank
lin, "Sweet Bird Of Youth" and "Mixed Up Guy" by Wayne Davis, "I Am A Woman" and "Gimme Back My Man" by Betty Wright
, "Come Little Children" and "Love, Love, Love" by Donny Hathaway, "Living Together Is Keeping Us Apart" and "Like Running Water" by Clarence Reid, "I Got A Woman" by Ray Charles, "In The Midnight Hour" by Wilson Pickett and "Conversation/
How I Got Over" by Nikki Giovanni.
