A bombastic party courtesy of Legacy Records. The festivities begin with an unedited "Wake Up Everybody" by Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, flows into Isley, Jasper, Isley's "Caravan of Love," and then switches to adult theme ballads, the stature of "Me & Mrs. Jones," "Kiss and Say Goodbye," and Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine." Brenda & the Tabulations' breezy but despairing "One Girl Too Late" is delightful. The Intruders' "Cowboy to Girls" and Major Lance's calypso-ish "Hey Little Girl" are irresistible. Includes Labelle's potent "Lady Marmalade" and MFSB's contagious, six-plus minute "Love Is the Message."
If You like old school, then this it the one for you. This collection has many years to choose from. Brings back all the old memories.
BGO's 2013 two-fer She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye/There Must Be More to Love Than This combines Jerry Lee Lewis' 1970 album with its 1971 sequel, both ranking among his finest country efforts. She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye slightly edges out its sequel in terms of consistency, partially because it's anchored on a couple of major hits ("Once More with Feeling," "She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye"), but There Must Be More to Love Than This is no slouch, containing a bunch of pure hard country, lots of barroom weepers and barrelhouse rockers.
