Customer Reviews

These ARE the original recordings.

Contrary to this iTunes review, these are in fact the original recordings. Trust me, if they weren't, there would be many angry reviews. With that said, this is the most comprehensive collection I've seen of Sam & Dave, and worth every penny. The songs are classic and simply a ton of fun, and include everything that make soul music great - lots of energy, great vocals, and sincerity. "Soothe Me" is the song that got me into soul when I was a teenager, and it's a love affair that continues to this day, some years later. Disclaimer: I generally find iTunes reviews to be helpful, but I had to write in and note that, in this case, the iTunes review is NOT correct.

A Great Set Also Because...

There are 6 more songs included here that were not on original lp. Every song here is the original. Tracks 1,2,4,16,18 and 21 must have been added by Rhino. Some were b'sides some were unreleased. Small Portion and May I Baby were considered rarities until this release. They were B sides that got radio airplay back in the day. If you're looking for an essential S&D collection, this is it!!

If this music doesn't move you, you might be dead.

One of the most soulful groups of all time.

The original pairing of Sam Moore and Dave Prater met in Florida in 1961, and they recorded unsuccessfully for several years before being signed to Atlantic Records in 1965. Atlantic persuaded their Memphis affiliate Stax Records to produce them, and in December that year the writing and production team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter delivered the crisply soulful "You Don't Know Like I Know."
