Not what I was hoping for...

(2 out of 5 stars)
"Based on the brief review in the All Music guides to both Soul and Blues, I thought this was going to be material from their early Vee-Jay period.
Not at all! It's hopped-up post-Stax R&B, with Larry Graham style slapped bass & heavy drumming. If that's what you're after, this may qualify as 5 star material.
As for me... I'd rather drink muddy water & sleep in a hollow log.
In the typical "Collectables" tradition, there's no info concerning when or where this was recorded, the band, or any details as to who wrote any of the songs.
(But if you want some great 60's Gospel, the Collectables Vee-Jay two-fors of the Staples are highly recommended.)"
