Sweet Soul Music: The Stax Groups
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 1988
A satisfying compilation from perhaps the finest soul music label, Sweet Soul Music: The Stax Groups focuses on the label's lesser-known groups. There's no Otis Redding, Sam & Dave or Isaac Hayes, but Stax's b-team is still indelible. The Temprees' fragile falsetto on "I Love You, You Love Me" is heartbreaking and one of this disc's many buried treasures.
