Various Artists – My Goodness, Yes! Soul Treasures from the Silver Fox Label – New LP
1969 - 1970. Nashville was a whole lot more than the country music capital of the world during the late 60s and early 70s. When he wasn't busy reviving the long-dormant Sun logo (and enjoying considerable success doing so), Music Row vet Shelby Singleton unleashed a torrent of sizzling southern soul singles on his SSS International label and its affiliate Silver Fox imprint during that same prolific era. This anthology features the very best that the two labels had to offer by well-known names such as the seductive Bettye LaVette, New Orleanians Robert Parker, the well-traveled Wilbert Harrison, and a revitalized Hank Ballard tackling Kris Kristofferson's Sunday Morning Comin Down as well as revered deep soul soldiers Eddy Giles, Reuben Bell, and Willie Hobbs. This is stone southern soul at its most righteous, with a tinge of country frequently permeating the proceedings to let you know precisely where these greats were coming from!
