AllMusic Review by

Featuring 20 soul classics by artists like Sam & Dave ("Soul Man," "Hold on I'm Comin'"), Aretha Franklin ("R-E-S-P-E-C-T"), Ben E. King ("Stand by Me"), and Otis Redding ("(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay," "Try a Little Tenderness") who literally define the soul genre, this compilation isn't exhaustive, certainly, but it hits enough of the obvious high points to be a decent purchase at a budget price.
