Review:
Assembled mostly from (non-hit) 1963-65 singles, this is solid stuff, but a notch below their peak collections. The best tracks (”Soul Dressing,” “Tic-Tac-Toe,” “Can’t Be Still”) are usually included on their best-of anthologies, but “Plum Nellie,” featuring some ferocious, cutting-edge solos by Cropper and Jones, is an overlooked highlight.
