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 eighth volume, subtitled Soul Heaven, includes Roscoe Robinson's "That's Enough," the Platters' "With This Ring," Bobby Womack's "I Can't Take It Like a Man," Johnny Wyatt's "To Whom It May Concern," and Ben Aiken's "Stay Together Young Lovers."
