Millie Jackson has been popular with soul fans of every persuasion since she laid down many seminal tracks at Spring Records in the 1970s. She made nearly 20 albums during her successful career. Each album is invariably a mix of the current soul styles; towards the latter part of her recordings, rap had an increasing influence. Inevitably some excellent ballads were hidden within LPs dominated by rap numbers that may not have been to soul collectors tastes. Millie had such a large output that the very best of her slower numbers makes a stunning package that caters to collectors who want a convenient collection of her best down-tempo moments and music fans who can have the best of her deep soul in one package.
The classics It Hurts So Good and If Loving You Is Wrong stand side by side with lesser known tours-de-force like Special Occasion, Angel In Your Arms and I Can't Say Goodbye. Kent's previous Millie compilation "Soul For The Dancefloor" has been very well received. We resisted naming this one "Soul For The Sofa", though it might well do what it says on the label.
