Muze PNote Arrangers: Vincent Trauth; Steve Cropper.
Muze PNote At nine discs and 244 tracks, The Complete Stax-Volt Singles: 1959-1968 is far too exhaustive for casual fans, but that's not who the set is designed for -- it's made for the collector. Featuring every A-side the label released during those nine years, as well as several B-sides, the set is a definitive portrait of gritty, deep Southern soul. Many of the genre's major names -- Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Carla Thomas, Booker T. & the MG's, William Bell, Rufus Thomas, the Bar-Kays, Albert King -- plus many terrific one-shot wonders are showcased in terrific sound and augmented with an in-depth booklet. For any serious soul or rock collector, it's an essential set, since Stax-Volt was not only a musically revolutionary label, its roster was deep with talent, which means much of the music on this collection is first-rate. But if you only want the hits, you'll be better off with a smaller collection, since too much of this set will sound too similar, and sorting through the nine discs will be a monumental task if you only want to hear Otis, Rufus, Carla, and Sam & Dave. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Producer: Dave Crawford; David Porter; John Keyes; Staff; Isaac Hayes; Allen Jones; Al Jackson, Jr.; Steve Cropper; Teddy Randazzo; Booker T. & The MG's; Booker T. Jones; Steve Greenberg (Reissue)

Professional Reviews

Q (11/03, p.127)

Mojo (Publisher)
(9/03, p.114)
- 5 stars out of 5 - "...This 9-CD collection captures the '60s' creative vitality..."

New York Times (Publisher)
(5/1/91)
- "..What is Southern soul music? Try listening to "The Complete Stax/Volt Singles: 1959-1968"...The collection has 244 rhythm-and-blues tracks recorded in Memphis when the city was at its peak as a soul-music capital. In the 1960's, the Stax/Volt record labels... pioneered the devlopment of a genre that has influenced such performers as Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt and many others.."
