An 85-track sampling of the greatest R&B ever waxed from one of the legendary labels of that genre. Essential selections from Wynonie Harris, Tiny Bradshaw, Hank Ballard, and Freddie King dovetail seamlessly with magical tracks from the likes of the Swallows, the 5 Royales, and Johnny "Guitar" Watson. Songs that will change your life include Lula Reed's aching rendition of Ray Charles's "Drown in My Tears," Big Jay McNeely's frantic "Nervous Man, Nervous," and Lil Greenwood & the Four Jack's hilarious "Grandpaw Can Boogie Too." Music scribe Colin Escott and his compilers wisely assume that you can find all the James Brown you require a few bins over. But a half a CD of King Records overlord-tyrant Syd Nathan spouting off at his A and R team is an unforgivable sin in a compilation as important as this one. --Ken Hohman
