AllMusic Review by

The four-disc Legacy compilation The Box Set Series: '70s Soul brings together a hefty cross section of classic '70s soul hits. Primarily, the box set focuses on how soul and R&B began translating the social concerns of '60s pop and politics toward the hard-driving, dance-oriented rhythms and sexual ballads of the '70s. Featured here are cuts by both well-known and lesser-appreciated artists including Sly & the Family Stone, Hues Corporation, Shuggie Otis, Bobby Womack, the O'Jays, Bill Withers, the Intruders, and many others. Included are such songs as "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," "Midnight Train to Georgia," "Lady Marmalade," "Always and Forever," and more.
