AllMusic Review by

Solid Soul is an extensive and usually smart series of compilations that pays most of its attention to mid-'60s singles; on occasion, it does stretch out to include material from well into the '70s. These aren't your typical collections since they dig real deep for buried nuggets and also include some well-known hits in order to entice longtime soul fans and the merely curious alike. The tenth volume, subtitled The Real Thing, includes the Isley Brothers' "This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)," Betty Wright's "Clean Up Woman," Sam & Dave's "Hold On! I'm Comin'," Reggie Garner's "Hot Line," and Bobby Day's "Rockin' Robin."
