Description du produit
Welcome to the second of two releases from Edsel that serve to chronicle the eternally great Stax recordings of Sam Moore and the late Dave Prater Sam and Dave as they will always be known to their legion of fans. Along with Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave virtually define late 60s soul.
After a Stax Roadshow in Europe in early 1967 that featured the label s biggest acts, backed by the members of Booker T and the MGs and the Mar-Keys just as they were on the records, Sam and Dave returned to the studio. The first single was Soul
Man which shot to # 1 R & B and # 2 Pop, followed by the album Soul Men .
The next album was I Thank You , preceded by the # 4 single of the same name (later covered by Z.Z. Top!), and followed by another three chart singles. These non-album A-sides (and their B-sides) are all included here as bonus tracks, as is the earlier B-side I Can t Stand Up For Falling Down . Remodelled by Elvis Costello in 1980, it became one of his biggest hits.
The booklet features a 4500 word essay by acknowledged expert and Blues & Soul contributor Tony Rounce.

Les voix de Sam et Dave se marient avec harmonies et les musiciens sont au top tout au long de ces plages.
J'ai hésité a mettre une note de cinq mais il me semble qu'ils ont encore fait mieux avec les deux disques précédent.
Un achat qui s'impose pour touts les amateurs de Soul music.
Je possédais déjà "soul men" en cassette et j'aimais beaucoup ce classique de la maison Atlantic,stax .
Deux disques pour le prix d'un, soul men et thank you, une affaire.
Un petit bémol, il me semble que le son sur ce disque est un peu compressé, comme du mp3, par rapport à l'enregistrement original.
Mais peut-être suis un peu trop pointilleux

As I said about the first set, this in some ways reminds me of that "electronically re-processed for stereo" junk from years ago. It's not as bad as that, but to my ears it comes close. As with the first set containing S & D's first two albums, I listen to this and enjoy it-it's Sam & Dave afterall. But I do it through slightly gritted teeth.
Bottom line-you might want to look elsewhere for Sam and Dave's early work-and don't waste your money on this edition. Try listening to this set with headphones and you'll hear what I mean. And hearing this set through speakers is almost as bad. Like I said about the first set, maybe I'm looking for a clean, even mono sound. But I still think these two sets could sound better-more presence, more bottom end-less R/L separation of vocals/band.
But the 19 page booklet is very well done. You get complete track listings, original album notes, original vinyl album covers, and a fairly long, informative and interesting essay on S & D by someone worthy of writing about the duo-Tony Rounce.

[Note: the 'studio' version of "Soothe Me" rather than the 'live' cut was used as a UK 7" single on Stax 601004 in March 1967 with "Sweet Pains" as its B-side - both songs s are on the "Double Dynamite" album - available on the 1st CD by Edsel mentioned above (Tracks 20 and 22)]
PHIL KINRADE at Alchemy Studios in London has done the mastering and it's a fantastic job - muscular and pounding out of your speakers like those old 45's used to do. Being 60's Soul and recorded with indecent haste in less than audiophile conditions - there's hiss on occasion and some muddiness to the bass every now and then - but mostly this remaster sounds 'so' clear to me - the brass, drum whacks and guitar - much better than the early Nineties Rhino discs I've had for years now. And as a sucker for those 45's and their double-shots of brilliance - I also love the fact that this release allows me to line up those songs for play - and in top sound quality too.
The 20-page full-colour booklet featuring a 4000-word essay by noted Soul expect and aficionado TONY ROUNCE is superlative. Rounce has had a long-time association with both Edsel and Ace Records of the UK and their Philadelphia and Chess CD reissues - and his work here is typically indepth, knowledgeable and enthusiastic in a way that only British Soul nuts can be. Pages 12 and 16 have gorgeous full colour plates of each album sleeve and the rest of the text is peppered with insert photos of the Florida (Sam) and Georgia (Dave) boys in various live shows. There's a track-by-track Discography at the rear and it even reproduces the original liner notes that graced the back of each American LP sleeve. Rounce's liner notes also extend to their later years (aged 76, Sam Moore is still with us and singing). In other words Edsel could have taken the easy way out and put in a foldout 3-page filler that would have sufficed - but they haven't - and they're to be praised for this.
To the music - the album "Soul Men" is considered by most to be their best album and it's easy to hear why. Fast or slow - the song quality is tops. Lesser-heard album tracks like "Hold It Baby" and "I'm With You" are brilliant (lyrics above) - equal to any of the single releases. The torch ballads "May I Baby" and "I've Seen What Loneliness Can Do" are belters too. I have to say that I find the 'live' version of Sam Cooke's "Soothe Me" only ok - I much prefer the album cut on the "Double Dynamite" LP. But I can 'so' see why Elvis Costello covered the superb non-album B-side "I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down" - another slowy with Soul power. The title track is of course their most famous song - it hit the number 1 spot in many countries around the world and was quite rightly inducted into the US 'Grammy Hall Of Fame' in 1999.
"I Thank You" opens with the band sounding 'so' tight on the title track. But it's the gorgeous vibe of "Everybody Got To Believe In Somebody" that impresses even more. Penned by the inimitable duo of ISAAC HAYES and DAVID PORTER - it should have been a smash, but alas the 45 waned at the same time their career did. Other highlights include the piano/guitar ballad of "If I Didn't Have A Girl Like You" and the building intensity of the holy-roller cover "That Lucky Old Sun" - which finishes the album in style. The singles are fab too - I especially like the quality B-sides "This Is Your World" and "Come On In". Scottish Soul Rockers DEACON BLUE did a lively B-side cover of the superb "Born Again" on their "Real Gone Kid" CD single in 1988. Like I say - it's an embarrassment of riches (even if some of the MONO mixes aren't on here and could have been).
To sum up - presented well, sounding spiffing and cheaper than a soiled paper napkin in Buckingham Palace - this is a huge amount of top Sixties Stax Soul for peanuts money.
So good - and thoroughly recommended.
