Best-known for producing some of the greatest southern soul from their Muscle Shoals, Alabama studios, FAME was successful at any type of music they turned their hands to. The young writers and musicians were as keen to replicate the sound of Motown as they were to follow the innovative sounds of Stax. This CD spotlights uptempo southern grit with club classics like Clarence Carter's 'Looking For A Fox' and Arthur Conley's 'I Can't Stop; No, No, No', but the label was also capable of chasing on-the-fours dance appeal, with James Barnett's 'Keep On Talking' and Linda Carr's 'Everytime'. They could also ape the big city soul sounds of New York and LA with tracks such as Jimmy Hughes' 'I'm Getting Better' and June Conquest's 'Almost Persuaded'. When the more produced sounds of the 70s arrived, they were more than adept as with George Soule's 'Midnight Affair' (issued at the time by Sandra Wright) and their whole string of hits for Candi Staton.
