Great One-Hit Wonders From The Last Golden Years of Soul

"Rhino Records released "Didn't It Blow Your Mind" series of one-shot R&B hits as a companion to its "Have A Nice Day" 70s pop song series. Wisely, "Didn't It" comes without the smirking irony many of "Have"'s musical cheese puffs deserved.This is because of the greater music quality here. Those who've heard King Floyd's "Groove Me" on the body soap commercials will marvel as its stop-start groove spreads over a too-short three minutes. Two gorgeous ballads, the Fuzz' "I Love You For All Seasons" and the shimmering Philly soul of Brenda & The Tabulations "Right on The Tip of My Tongue," matched up to more socially-concious fare from two Brunswick-label soul groups, the Chi-Lites and the Lost Generation (with the gimmicky "Sly, Slick, & Wicked") Outstanding (non-Aretha) female voices come to the fore here as they wouldn't for another five years: Tina Turner (on "Proud Mary"), Jackie Moore (the disco fave "Precious Precious"), Mavis Staples (with Pops and family on Bobby Bloom's "Heavy Makes You Happy") even Sly Stone's sister on "Somebody's Watching You." Things are a little un-PC on the two Chairman of the Board songs, but hey, guys were like that then. This is a fine collection of transitional soul that, as with many Rhino collections, beats collecting out-of-print singles yourself."
Soul Music at it's finest
