Nashville was a whole lot more than the country music capital of the worldduring the late '60s and early '70s. When he wasn't busy reviving thelong-dormant Sun logo (and enjoying considerable success doing so), Music Row vet Shelby Singleton unleashed a torrent of sizzling southern soul singles on his SSS International label and its affiliate Silver Fox imprint during that same prolific era. These two jam-packed anthologies feature the very best that the two labels had to offer by well-known names such as the seductive Bettye LaVette, New Orleanians Johnny Adams, Danny White and Robert Parker, the well-traveled Wilbert Harrison, Peggy Scott and Jo Jo Benson (separately!) and a revitalized Hank Ballard tackling Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Morning Comin' Down" as well as revered deep soul soldiers Eddy Giles, Reuben Bell, Mickey Murray, Clifford Curry, George Perkins & the Silver Stars, Big John Hamilton, Sam Dees and Willie Hobbs. This is stone southern soul at its most righteous, with a tinge of country frequently permeating the proceedings to let you know precisely where these greats were coming from!
