AllMusic Review by

Sam & Dave (Sam Moore and Dave Prater) came roaring out of Stax Studios in the late '60s with a series of hard-hitting soul singles that detonated with gospel fervor across AM radio waves. With a production team of Isaac Hayes and Dave Porter, and backed by the legendary MG's, Sam & Dave attempted to out sing each other on such soul classics as "Hold On! I'm Coming!" "Soul Man," "I Thank You," and "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby," all of which are included on this collection. Truthfully, more of this dynamic duo is always better than less, and more complete compilations are available.
