The name of the game is southern soul – served up in a collection of work from the legendary Memphis Hi Records label! The set does a good job of mixing the hits with more obscure numbers – juxtaposing classics by Al Green with some of the even hipper, lesser-known singles that were coming out at the time – all in a blend that shows the full spectrum of the Hi genius, especially on these rarer tracks! Package features 21 tracks in all – including "Mack The Knife" by Bobby Emmons, "Aretha Sing One For Me" by George Jackson, "Buser Browne" by Willie Mitchell, "Trouble Is My Name" by Don Hines, "Mr Chann" by Reggie Young, "Charlie Tuttle" by Sam Mosley, "Miss Betty Green" by Big Lucky Carter, "Sunshine" by Darryl Carter, "She's Miss Wonderful" by Bubby McClure, and 8 tracks by Al Green that include "Ride Sally Ride", "Belle", "Judy", "Jesus Is Waiting", "Georgia Boy", and "Eli's Game".

The great Stan Mosley is on the cover this time around – an artist we love because he's equal parts southern soul and blues! There's also big features on contemporary blues artists Beautiful Bobby Blackmon and Bigllou Johnson – as well as a feature on the recording date for the 1927 track "Let It Roll" in Atlanta – a crucial Columbia 78rpm disc from Peg Leg Howell! Plenty more too – the usual record reviews, blues news, and smaller columns as well. LP, Vinyl record album
