The greatest of all soul duos, Sam (Moore) and Dave (Prater) brought the sound of the black church to pop music with their string of call-and-response hits for Stax Records from 1965 to 1968. The pair usually worked with the songwriting and production team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter, using Booker T. and the M.G.'s as backing musicians. From these collaborations came such soulful, fevered exchanges as "You Don't Know Like I Know," "Hold On, I'm Comin'," "You Got Me Hummin'," "Soul Man" and "I Thank You." 1969's essential The Best of Sam and Dave gathers all of the above and more! Colored 180g vinyl LP reissue from Friday Music, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA.
