recorded back in the sixties. With an arsenal of the finest musicians like Booker T. & The M.G.’s, plus producers and writers like Issac Hayes at their call, Sam & Dave released a treasure trove of funk, soul and rock masterpieces, which have gone on to become some of the greatest sides ever waxed in modern soul history!
With chart topping soul rockers like "Hold On, I’m Comin’ " "I Take What I Want" "I Thank You" and their all time trademark song "Soul Man", the good folks at Atlantic honored this famed double dynamite duo with their own greatest hits album, the magnificent "The Best Of Sam & Dave" in 1969.
