Only on the album, Richard. There was at least one 'Stax Special' promo only single taken from BMG that featured tracks which weren't also released commercially on 45, but this wasn't either side of it. I have it in the attic, one side is "All I Have To Do Is Dream" by (from memory) William Bell and Mavis Staples.

I thought it was Eddie Floyd and Carla Thomas.

I have played this out on occasions from the album and it's a magnificent record: rattling percussion and fantastic bass playing give it real push, taken to another level by great singing.

There are other great tracks on the album too, from memory the William Bell/Mavis Staples "Leave The Girl Alone" is a wonderful fingersnapper and for me Johnnie Taylor and Carla Thomas' stab at "I've Just Been Feeling Bad" knocks spots off the Eddie Floyd original.

The Stax recordings of this period have been taken for granted for too long: even the (relative) dross sounds more than acceptable these days.

Yes you're right mate. Tiredness has set in. It is a wonderful record and an absolute steal , easily the best Stax compilation of the era.
