CD Reviews

Rare and well done
Johnny Heering | Bethel, CT United States | 06/26/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD features "rare and unreleased tracks from the golden era of soul". These recordings are taken from the Stax/Volt vaults and almost all of them are previously unreleased. Some of these songs have been released before, but these are alternate takes. Considering that these recording weren't considered "good enough" to be released when they were first recorded, the quality of the music is very good. There aren't any bad songs here, and some of them are actually great. I especially like Booker T & the MGs version of "Dock of the Bay". The two Otis Redding alternate takes are dynamite. And Eddie Floyd turns in an electrifying live version of his classic "Knock on Wood". Recommended to fans of '60s soul."
