    Have owned that + Volume 2(Blue cover) for quite awhile.

    "In The Rain"(Track# 14) almost sounds a bit of place with the other hits.
    Volume 2 has another great tune by The Dramatics("What You See Is What You Get"...covered fairly recently by John Scofield).

    Anyway, I agree with you, Stax is happening R&B...still!
