All 28 songs from Carr's 1964-1970 Goldwax singles are here, which is enough to make it a fair bid for a good best-of compilation, although it doesn't have everything he recorded. About half of the songs on this British import are not on the most well-known American CD compilation of Carr's work, The Essential James Carr, and those tracks are consistent with the level of his other Goldwax recordings, although they don't include anything on the level of "The Dark End of the Street" or "Pouring Water on a Drowning Man." This disc is particularly valuable for filling in some of his earliest 1964-1966 sides, which have a very slightly poppier and more up-tempo bent than his most esteemed songs. "That's What I Want to Know"'s groove is pretty Motown-ish, for instance, while "I Can't Make It" and "Only Fools Run Away" have Marvelettes-like chirping in the background. The 1970 funk update of "Row, Row Your Boat" isn't much to cheer about, though. There are plenty who will argue the point, but this doesn't quite live up to Carr's billing as the greatest '60s deep soul singer; Otis Redding (who Carr resembles in some respects) was better, and others had better and more imaginative material. It's good, certainly, and recommended to fans of artists like Redding who are looking for similar stuff that doesn't get played on the radio anymore.

Les Grands Angles...
“Thriller”, anatomie d’un chef-d’œuvre

En 1982, Michael Jackson abattait les frontières entre styles, races et publics avec “Thriller”, le disque le plus vendu de tous les temps. Le premier et dernier album transgenre en quelque sorte… Mais surtout une œuvre qui a totalement chamboulé l’industrie de la musique populaire du XXe siècle, à revisiter dix ans après la mort du roi de la pop.

L’âge d’or funk de James Brown

Entre 1967 et 1974, le Godfather transforme sa soul en funk. Entouré par les musiciens les plus groovy du moment, James Brown orchestre une BO en phase avec les changements de la société américaine. Et tout le monde saute à bord de la Sex Machine !

Aretha Franklin, reine de l’Atlantic

Entre 1967 et 1979, Aretha Franklin enregistre pour le label Atlantic ses plus grands albums. Des disques imprégnés du gospel de son enfance qu’elle plonge dans le rhythm’n’blues pour redéfinir les contours de la soul moderne.
