Awful title for a series, but worth a look if you fancy sampling some classic soul is a new set of releases from Universal under the title Soul Legends.
The legends in question include Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield (and the Impressions), Diana Ross and the Supremes, James Brown and The Temptations.
Nothing here for the soul trainspotters – each set is essentially a collection of hits, with the odd b-side and rarity to round things off. But if you want to get an introduction to any of the acts concerned, they should be good starting points, especially with a price of around £7 each.
