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 ninth volume, subtitled Tears on My Pillow, includes the Flamingos' "I Only Have Eyes for You," Savannah Smith's "Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere," King Curtis' "Soul Serenade," the Heartbeats' "Everybody's Somebody's Fool," and Garnet Mimms' "A Quiet Place."
