18 good songs--but where is the thread to tie it together?
This rather scattered compendium features a bunch of mega hits (Flashlight, Reunited, Three Times a Lady, Fire) with other quality hits and a few more obscure tracks from the Soul lists of the 1970s. The collection's lack of focus is an obvious flaw--why of all the quality 70s soul to choose from were these selected? Not the first 18 that would come to your mind, or mine. Probably had more to do with the cost/availability than building a cohesive collection. Perhaps the 18 hits found here would fill slots in other playlists you've compiled, otherwise you will find better collections elsewhere.
It's hard to beat 10 dollars for almost twenty great songs. This album rocks.
