Clarence Carter's work for the Atlantic and Fame labels is my favourite soul music. In my opinion his music from the sixties and early seventies is better than that of Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin or any other southern soul man or woman. I feel that he was greatly under-rated during that era. He had a great voice, catchy tunes, and beautiful horn and guitar work. Many of Carter's greatest songs from that period are on this particular album, and I think that it is a must-have. For those to whom Clarence Carter is new, I advise them to get the following albums as well: This is Clarence Carter, The Dynamic Clarence Carter, Patches, Testifyin', Sixty Minutes with Clarence Carter, Heart Full of Song, Loneliness and Temptation, and the original The Best of Clarence Carter.
