Review Text Have you ever been to a party where a familiar song was playing, and then you blurted out the wrong artist name and everyone laughed at you? Were you so dejected that you left the party in tears, only to turn on the radio to once again misidentify the soul music on the radio? Have you ever been harassed by a record store clerk for inquiring about what familiar tune was playing over the store's sound system? What about that time when you were making a mixtape for a person you fancied, only to mislabel some of the artists as "Marvin Wonder" and "The O'Jays Brothers" -- and the person didn't call you back? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions and haven't yet checked into therapy, then perhaps this compilation can help. '70s Soul Music for Dummies is an overview of one of soul music's most diverse and prolific eras. Every song was a bona fide hit in its heyday, and the compilation provides a nice overview for those just wading into deep waters for the first time. From the lively moments of funk, disco, and Philly soul to the contemplative, introspective moments of Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers, it runs the gamut and does an able job of easing the listener in. Those who already know and cherish all of these artists and songs may find this an unnecessary purchase, but '70s Soul Music for Dummies is a great starting point for those wanting to learn more about the joys of soul music. ~ Rob Theakston
