The companion volume to Ichiban's Cheatin': From A Woman's Point Of View offers similar anti-Valentine's Day messages from a variety of soul performers, most recorded between the mid-'60s and mid-'70s. The woman's volume is perhaps more interesting because it assembles more obscurities, but this is another generally worthy collection of non-cliched soul hits by the Impressions, Little Milton, Johnnie Taylor, Clarence Carter, Luther Ingram, Billy Paul, Don Covay, William Bell, and Z.Z. Hill. Most of them were much bigger R&B sellers than pop ones, and some don't appear on many anthologies.
