Amoeba Review

08/13/2013

The South Side of Soul Street collects 40 rare, out-of-print tracks from '60s Southern soul label Minaret. The 20 A-sides and their accompanying B-sides from the cult label are given a shockingly pristine treatment, sounding as though they could have been recorded yesterday. Several soul singers little known to the general public yet legendary among record collectors are well-represented here, such as Big John Hamilton, who only recorded a handful of songs during his short career that beg to be heard, particularly his shuffling, funk "Big Bad John." Similarly, songs like Doris Allen's defiant "A Shell of a Woman" hit hard with tales of heartbreak. The music included on these two discs is worth the price alone, but the CD set also includes a booklet that sheds further light on the history of the label, including stories of each of the artists as well as photos and commentary. Another great bit of musical salvaging from Omnivore. Pick up a piece of music history with The South Side Of Soul Street!
