Performer Notes
  • This three-disc set documenting the 1960s/'70s glory days of Southern soul is as impressive an anthology as one could want, balancing expertly between classic tunes by big-name artists and lost gems by cult favorites. Covering the soul scene as it developed in Muscle Shoals, Memphis, and elsewhere, TAKE ME TO THE RIVER moves from such iconic cuts as the Al Green title track and Aretha Franklin's "Do Right Woman Do Right Man" to milestones of a less ubiquitous nature (King Floyd's "Groove Me," Paul Kelly's "Stealing in the Name of the Lord") and obscure collectors-manna like The Masqueraders' "Let's Face Facts," carefully presenting as all-encompassing a portrait of this rich scene as even a three-disc limit will allow.

Record Collector (magazine) (p.83) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his set deserves to be heard by a much wider audience: in fact anyone with a spine to be tingled, a tear to be shed and a soul to be sanctified."

Uncut (magazine) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n invigorating mix of heartbreak and joy....All human emotion is persistently coming to the boil here with fiery preaching and testifying siding up to anguished, poignant ballads."
