Description by

As it evolved from down-home enterprise to corporate soul powerhouse, the Memphis-based Stax/Volt label forged an enormously influential sound and label identity in its quest to be "where everything is everything."

All 213 soul singles released by Stax/Volt in this period (1972-1975) are contained in Volume 3, which like the previous compilations features a panoply of big hits as well as a surprising number of undeservedly obscure gems.

Stax historian (and box co-producer) Rob Bowman tells the whole story in his 47,000-word essay. And the last word on the subject is: The Memphis Sound lives.

Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/29/94-1/12/95, p.188
4 Stars - Excellent - "...By this point, Stax had for the most part stopped trying to chase trends and instead concentrated on its strengths: down-home, funky and gritty urban blues..."
Entertainment Weekly - 1/13/95, p.61
"...if you've got an itch for soul that you thought could never be adequately scratched, [THE COMPLETE STAX/VOLT SOUL SINGLES, VOLUME 3: 1972-1975] might just do the trick..."
