The spare look of the cover here hardly does the music justice – as the set's filled with full, rich grooves – mostly funky rock
cuts from the American underground of the 70s – but delivered with a sound that's plenty soulful overall! Imagine kids who were raised on both the soul of James Brown and Otis Redding, and the jazzier rock
styles that came into play at the end of the 60s – then witness the album's wonderful blend of fuzz, funk, and really soaring styles – sometimes with a full-on nod to the Hendrix generation, other times with a vibe that's more Memphis or Muscle Shoals! As with all the other Perfect Toy compilations, the material here is very well-chosen, and thoughtfully researched – which makes for a package that's way more than a random assortment of tracks – although one that's hidden by an unassuming cover. Titles on this third volume include "I Chose To Sing The Blue
s" by The Revival, "Messin With The Kid" by The Aftermath, "Fire" by The Turks, "Come On & Get It" by Heather Black, "Pappy's Rug" by Pump, "Red Wine" by Sancho Bros Band, "My Land" by Friends, "Dizengoff" by Babe Wallace, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Fabulous Impacts, "Suffering Soul" by Guitar Murphy, "Drifting" by George Brigman & Split, "Run Clarence Run" by The Inn Crowd, and "Baby That's All" by Gentle Uprising.
