Heart and Soul on a Budget

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is likely one of the best budget titles you could buy. Seven of the ten cuts appear on The Soul of O.V. Wright, so if you have that one, don't buy this (unless you really need those other songs). But for the money, you get O.V.'s four biggest Back Beat hits ("Eight Men, Four Women" "Ace Of Spades" "You're Gonna Make Me Cry" "A Nickel and a Nail"), plus enough of his other songs to give you an idea of the depth of this man's talent. Two other songs, "If It's Only for Tonight" and "Gone For Good" came from album sources. "What More Can I Do" is more rare. It was released on ABC Records after that label purchased Back Beat (along with Duke and Peacock) from its owner, Don Robey. While it was a medium-sized hit, O.V. either chose to leave or was shown the door by ABC, shortly thereafter. But he was soon to sign with Hi Records (whose president, Willie Mitchell was O.V.'s regular producer), where he continued to record until the time of his death in 1980."
