A long-overdue collection of work from Silver Fox Records – one of the coolest indie labels in the south at the end of the 60s, part of the Nashville
-based SSS empire, and poised at a really unique crossroads of soul! Silver Fox was always a bit funkier than SSS – and often had a groove that brought deep soul vocals into play with tighter funky backings – in a way that took the already hard-burning southern sound of the time, and managed to cook it up a few notches! Silver Fox mostly only issued singles, and apart from a few key hits, a big part of the label's output has never been properly reissued – nor properly remembered – but as usual, Sundazed have gone out of their way to really present the material right, stuffing this excellent CD with 20 great tracks, and also including some key notes on the music! Titles include "Do Your Duty" and "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "Motor City Funk (part 1)" by Bright Lights, "Poppin Popcorn" by South Street Soul Guitars, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "You Shakin Things Up" and "You See Me" by Robert Parker, "So Deep In Love" by Eddie Giles, "Cryin In The Streets (part 1)" by George Perkins & The Silver Stars, "Cornbread Row" by Big Al Downing, "Pledging My Love" by Laura Greene & Johnny McKinnis, "Love Em & Leave Em" and "Yes My Goodness Yes" by Willie Hobbs, "You Got To Pay The Price" and "Grounded" by Gloria Taylor, and "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Reuben Bell.
