Soul Woman Compilation (Universal Music)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
They say that this compilation has 80 timeless classics from the Queens of Soul. Spread over 4 CD's they are probably right. It covers a wide period of time though from Nina Simone with I Put A Spell On You to Amy Winehouse with Rehab.
The first CD opens up with Aretha Franklin and Respect; you can't get a better start than that.

Elsewhere there is Donna Summer with Love To Love You Baby, Diana Ross with Upside Down and Yorkshire's Corinne Bailey Rae with Put Your Records On.
I was surprised to see some jazzier tracks on such as Incognito featuring Jocelyn Brown with Always There, Erykah Badu with On and On and Freez with Southern Freez. However these 3 tracks are all excellent in their genre.
I give the album 4 out of 5
