Ultimate Southern Soul Review

by Steve Leggett

A collection of contemporary Southern soul singers signed to Louisiana's Mardi Gras Records, Ultimate Southern Soul won't make you forget Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, or Al Green, but it has its moments, including X-Man's Curtis Mayfield-like vocal on "2 Birds," the soul-gospel shouting of Stan Mosley on "Rockin' Slide," the odd "Hood Rat" by Eric Perkins, and the late, great Big Ike's signature tune, "Teddy Bear."
