Heavy pettin' soul from the '60s, including hits by the Shirelles, the Friends of Distinction, Ruby & the Romantics, Jerry Butler & Betty Everett, Eddie Holman, and others. To its credit, a few of these (like the tracks by the Impressions, Etta James, and Ketty Lester) weren't big enough hits to get cooked to a crisp by repeated plays on oldies radio. Also, the cut by Otis Redding ("The Glory of Love") probably won't be familiar to anyone who isn't a major soul buff.
