Once again, the compilers have found a bunch of very rare tracks by some fairly obscure recording artists (mostly recorded from 1967 to 1972, plus one track from 1965), but it's all first-class material that should please discerning funk and soul fans.
As for some of the more interesting cuts, Cat Scream's Li'l Buck has some real slick high-speed jittery funk guitar, Dave Hamilton's Take Care of Your Own Business has a welcome bluesy harmonica and mildly Howlin' Wolf-like vocal delivery, Chico & Buddy's Ain't It a Groove has a more AM play list friendly sound than most (with those Philadelphia-like vibraphones), and the Soul Senders' Soul Brothers Testify has some scorching Jimi Hendrix-influenced guitar.
Fans of other volumes in this series will definitely love this one.
