This is one of the best compilations I have ever heard. It doesn’t attempt to catch your eye with more than one hit, and it doesn’t have filler garbage. This compilation is perfect. I got it (unsurprisingly) at The Soul Of A Nation exhibit at the Tate Modern. All of the tracks (bar one) I didn’t know, and all of the tracks I consistently listen to now. It also comes with what is probably the best companion piece booklet I have ever gotten. It’s a 30 page booklet about the history of race in America, complete with a lot of images. The CD and the booklet are packaged are also nicely packed in a slipcase, which is an added bonus. Anyway, this is a purchase I highly reccomend and you should try and get it if you’re into soul, jazz, funk or political music.
