Reviews:

"1969 was a hell of a year, something’s that quite obvious from all of the 50th anniversary celebrations going on right now. What you probably didn’t realize is that 2019 is also the 50th anniversary of Stax Records’ Soul Explosion, a landmark collection of songs that was released in an effort to re-brand Stax as the most important soul label of the day. Stax released 27 albums and 30 singles over just a few months in 1969, and Soul Explosion celebrated this feat in a compilation album that featured such iconic artists such as Booker T. & the MG’s, Johnnie Taylor, Carla Thomas, Albert King, The Staple Singers, Eddie Floyd and oh, the list just goes on and on. Soul Explosion wasn’t a greatest hits collection–it was a proclamation that soul had arrived in full force, and Stax was the new king.

(…) If you think 27 straight tracks of classic ’60s soul music can test your attention span, you’ll be surprised by the sheer variety on Soul Explosion. These artists were all doing their own things in the studio and sounded very different from each other. You probably already know about the groovy instrumental tracks from Booker T. & the MG’s, but how about the psychedelic, rock-based rhythms of Southwest F.O.B.’s “Smell of Incense”? Albert King dove deep into the blues with a fitting sense of regret, but the Bar-Kays’ “Copy Kat” sounds like it was delivered by a bunch of kids running wildly through the streets on a hot summer day.” Part time Audiophile
