The liner notes that accompany this collection note that '70s soul music has never really gotten its due. One could argue that point for days, but hubris aside, there's no denying that Can You Dig It pays serious homage to the golden years of American soul. The new box set contains 6 CDs and 136 cuts, 65 of which hit the No. 1 spot on the R&B and/or pop charts. As you'd expect with a project that mines such a rich era (the CDs are compiled chronologically), it represents a who's who of stars. Among the notables: Marvin Gaye, Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, the Spinners, the O'Jays, the Staple Singers, James Brown, Chairmen of the Board, Laura Lee, Freda Payne, and Jean Knight. Lesser lights also get to shine, i.e., El Chicano, who deliver the salsafied hippie anthem "Tell Her She's Lovely." But let's be honest--the selling point is the hits, and from the uplifting "Ooh Child" to the sassy "Want Ads," if you grew up in the '70s (hands up), then these tracks are beloved. Sure, the hard-core fan will probably wish for more obscurities, and the exclusion of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and George Clinton is troublesome, but anyone wanting an at-home jukebox loaded with classic R&B will certainly dig this. ~ Amy Linden


In short Rhino did an excellent job with "Can You Dig It - The '70s Soul Experience" in all regards; song selection, packaging and audio quality. The only slight downer is that Rhino chose to use the familiar radio edits instead of the album cuts. Nonetheless, this is a boxset that will put a smile on your face as all those memories from the 1970s come flooding back as you listen to all your favorite Soul / R & B songs. Just look at the tracklisting. Can you dig it? I knew you could dig 70s Soul. Highly recommended. ~ discomusic.com
