The liner notes that accompany this collection note that '70s soul music has never really gotten its due. One could argue that point for days, but hubris aside, there's no denying that Can You Dig It pays serious homage to the golden years of American soul. The new box set contains 6 CDs and 136 cuts, 65 of which hit the No. 1 spot on the R&B and/or pop charts. As you'd expect with a project that mines such a rich era (the CDs are compiled chronologically), it represents a who's who of stars. Among the notables: Marvin Gaye, Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, the Spinners, the O'Jays, the Staple Singers, James Brown, Chairmen of the Board, Laura Lee, Freda Payne, and Jean Knight. Lesser lights also get to shine, i.e., El Chicano, who deliver the salsafied hippie anthem "Tell Her She's Lovely." But let's be honest–the selling point is the hits, and from the uplifting "Ooh Child" to the sassy "Want Ads," if you grew up in the '70s (hands up), then these tracks are beloved. Sure, the hard-core fan will probably wish for more obscurities, and the exclusion of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and George Clinton is troublesome, but anyone wanting an at-home jukebox loaded with classic R&B will certainly dig this.

To the uninitiated I won't go into the full explanation of Modern Soul, there are more than enough words in the sleevenotes. Suffice it to say that it is primarily danceable 70s soul music with a solid, as opposed to a funky beat. Having said that, the Modern Soul crowd has a very liberal view on what is danceable and having emerged at least partly as an antidote to the 100mph Northern Soul stompers, are willing to wander on to the dancefloor to the most laid-back of tunes. In fact the intimacy of many of their venues and the occasional lack of floor space often sees discerning soul fans grooving to their favourites on linoleum, sticky carpet or even table tops. The quality of the song and the singer's performance are given higher priority than the correctness of the rhythm, while clever dance moves are considered less important than say flowery bowling shirts or an encyclopaedic knowledge of Tyrone Davis' recording career.

The original tracks sampled & selected by the producers were essentially ‘70s Soul music. And it’s the opportunity to groove to Smokey Robinson, Charles Wright, James Brown or Roy Ayers among others. The loops in the Barry White and Edwin Starr introductions remain eternal, while the Donny Hathaway song will always be associated to a Dr Dre classic. While Average White Band or Ohio Players bring a funky touch, Eddie Kendricks takes us on a smooth ride with his sweet and mellow Soul. Finally, a special tribute to Clarence Reid (who passed away recently) whose drum kick was used in a famous posse cut on “the chronic” album by Dr Dre.

Of all the "70s Soul" albums crowding the market and the shelves, this one is among the best. From Barry White's opening plea to Jerry Butler's closing beseachment, the album flows like butter. Butter for your ears, that is. You really can't go wrong with the likes of Luther Ingram gracing your album, dig? If lovin' you is wrong, I don't wanna be right; if bein right means needing ANOTHER soul album besides this one then I'd rather live a wrongdoin life.

A really cool little collection of 70s soul music – one that brings together only tunes that have a love-based them, but which still have this joyous, soaring quality overall! These aren't ballads, or weepy heartbreak numbers – but upbeat tunes that groove together wonderfully in a rich array of grooves hand-picked from the catalogs of Brunswick, HDH, and Hi Records! Detroit, Chicago, and Memphis modes come together wonderfully, in a surprisingly unified groove – and titles include "Rock Me In The Cradle" by Freda Payne, "Something You Got" by Quiet Elegance, "Let Me Back In" by Tyrone Davis, "I Still Love You" by Jackie Wilson, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Gotta Find Me A Lover" by Erma Franklin, "99 Lbs" by Ann Peebles, "Don't Count Your Chickens" by Honey Cone, "What Have You Done With My Heart" by Imported Moods, and "Home Is Where The Heart Is" by Otis Clay.

Body and Soul: Christmas features a number of holiday songs performed by some of the best soul artists of the late 20th century. You get '60s soul legends (the Temptations' "Silent Night," Otis Redding's "White Christmas," and the Surpremes' "Twinkle Twinkle Little Me"), '70s soul icons (Isaac Hayes' "Mistletoe and Me," the O'Jays' "Merry Christmas Baby," the Ohio Players' "Happy Holidays"), and some more contemporary artists (SWV's "Christmas Ain't Christmas," Boyz II Men's "Let It Snow"). The Marvin Gaye performance, "I Want to Come Home for Christmas," is also noteworthy. Overall, a broad and epoch-ranging collection of holiday music done soul style by many of the style's greatest figures. ~ Jason Birchmeier

Double-CD, career-spanning retrospective that offers little in the way of surprises: it's a tastefully selected overview of her career highlights, heaviest (and justifiably so) on her late '60s albums. There's the inevitable feeling of letdown as disc two progresses; her post-early '70s material is far less interesting than her earliest work, even if it's inoffensive. All of the first five albums (through 1971's Gonna Take a Miracle) are now on CD, so this is most suitable for the fan who isn't passionate enough to be a completist. Includes a couple of previously unreleased live tracks from the 1990s; the version of "Sweet Blindness," unfortunately, is not the original late-'60s recording, but from a late-'70s live album.

Genre: Pop Rock, Soul / Label: ACE

Ace's Hit List series returns with another top-notch collection of US Hot 100 hits from the first half of the 1970s. The 1970s are now viewed with the same serious musical appreciation as the 50s and 60s. Hit List 2 will be a valuable addition to the collection of anyone who grew up listening to the decade's vibrant music. The album-oriented sound of FM radio might have arrived in the US by the start of the decade, but via the AM band you could still hear a diversity of snappy 45s on your transistor radio. Hit List 2 revisits another 24 of those singles, many of which were also successful in the UK. All versions heard here are the original US single versions, rather than the often-different album versions that have frequently been compiled into other 70s collections. In true Ace style, many of the featured artists are as popular now as when they charted with these songs, while for others the featured selection represented their one moment of chart fame.
