    Eddie, although it's mighty tempting, I already have all of Loleatta Holloway's Salsoul/Goldmine material in my CD collection, in addition to countless special mixes, etc., so I won't be buying this otherwise excellent set. But, I must say, it's a great way for somebody who wants to collect all of Loleatta's Philly Soul material in one fell swoop. The tracklist doesn't get any better than this!

    Keep em coming and along this same line, how about some Linda Clifford, Gwen Guthrie, and a few others that come to mind?

    I'll be interested to learn if the mastering is more dynamic on this set than the usual brickwalling given to Loleatta's catalogue.

    It's a pity that the compilers haven't chosen to at long last gather Loleatta's 7" mixes, some of which are unique mixes and not simply edits. The Octave Lab reissues clearly sourced some of them from vinyl - complete with surface noise! - so perhaps that's a factor in their non-inclusion on this box set.

    Side note: Linda Clifford received a round of reissues from Blixa Sounds in 2022.


    In terms of suggestions for similar sets, it's about time that Gloria Gaynor's Polydor albums were gathered together on a box set. I would hope that such a set would use masters sourced from the U.S. rather than use well worn copy tapes from Europe.
