Uptempo soul and funky southern grooves – a beautifully-chosen batch of tracks from the legendary SSS
family of labels – and one that stands as a nice contrast to some of the other collections of work from the company's late 60s roster! SSS
is probably most famously known as home to some great ballad and pop soul material from the south, but the company also had a great run of funky 45s during the same stretch – singles that kicked up the groove a few more notches, and came off with a rough edge and plenty of grit in the mix! There's a deep deep sound here all the way through – making the package a non-stop romp through some plenty great music pulled from labels that include SSS International
, Silver Fox, Exit, and Honor Brigade. CD features 24 tracks in all – including "Lonely Man" by Johnny Soul, "Mama Ain't A Baby No More" by Marilyn Haywood, "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Reuben Bell, "Grounded (part 1)" by Gloria Taylor, "Nobody" by The Jerms, "Motor City Funk (part 1)" by Bright Lights, "Shake What You Got (part 1)" by Mr Jamo, "Fancy" by Rosalind Madison, "Having My Glory" by Jo Jo Benson, "You'd Better Quit It" by Jo Jo Benson, "Grab Your Partner & Do Your Own Thing" by Baby Al & The Capps, "Soul Butter" by Johnny Barfield & The Men Of Soul, "The Hiccup" by Robert Parker, and "Lonely For Your Baby" by Sam Dees.
