This double LP (USA) was issued in early 1969 as a kind of Stax and subsidiaries (Volt and Hip) but also includes on the second LP several tracks unavailable on other Stax records. They are as follows: Hear My Call - The Staple Singers featuring Mavis Staples, Book Of Love - Carla Thomas, Hot Hips - The Bar-Kays, Heartache Mountain - Ollie & The Nightingales, It's Wrong To Be Loving You - Eddie Floyd and Booker's Theme - Booker T. & The MG's, this version is the original one. The booklet is in both Japanaese and English and lists the song lyrics. Well worth seeking out if only for the unavailable tracks. This CD has been issued in Japan on Soul Walker 3 Victor VICP-62930 in January 2005.
