I was thinking just the other day that a musical genre that really doesn't appeal to me is that which intersects rock, country and soul. As if by magic here we have a compilation of the stuff from the remarkably consistent folk at Soul Jazz. If anything is going to get me into it this is. Straight away there are surprises - Lynrd Skynrd's 'The Seasons' is far from the hoary Southern rock you may expect, Barefoot Jerry's Grocery is a quirky shuffle, Cher makes a pre-surgery appearance with 'I Walk on Gilded Splinters' and Cowboy have a nice line in laid back country. I didn't realise what a nice voice Boz Skaggs has! So some prejudices have dissipated at least. Otherwise you get some 'classics' from the era that I could frankly do without, it's the obscure gems that make this worthwhile. Disappointed that Gene Clark is nowhere to be seen. His post Byrds output pisses all over a lot of this & he should be known as the one guy that consistently produced excellent work which dabbled in genres like a child at a pick and mix sweetshop.
