I bought this Rock ‘n’ Soul gem today for a pound but had little hope that its absolute filthiness could be tidied. Happily, it cleaned up a treat and is a thoroughly fine listen. Nearly every song is a five-star job and, remarkably, only 3 of the 12 sides do I already own.
The pinnacle among so many highlights must be Wilson Picket’s astonishing cover of “Hey Jude” which features a goose-pimple inducing guitar solo from Duane Allman. It vies with the original, and that’s saying something.
