Album Notes

Audio Remasterer: Joe Tarantino.

As part of Stax's Very Best series, Little Milton Campbell is spotlighted on 17 tracks recorded between 1971 and 1975 for the Memphis based label. While Little Milton had previously recorded for Sun, Bobbin, and Checker, it was during his tenure with Stax that he made the transition from gritty electric blues to slickly produced, horn-laden, soul-blues. This set is aimed at the casual listener and includes such R&B charted singles as "If That Ain't a Reason (For Your Woman to Leave You)," "What It Is," "Tin Pan Alley" and Milton's rendition of the Charlie Rich hit of the previous year "Behind Closed Doors." This is a decent sampler for the novice at a mid-line price. ~ Al Campbell
