'SOUL SISTERS' includes 16 tracks recorded between 1964 and 1974 featuring music from Aretha Franklin, Irma Thomas, Patti LaBelle and Barbara Lewis as well as a chorus of lesser-known singers deserving of more attention such as Doris Troy, Judy Clay and Baby Washington.

Franklin opens the collection by putting her unmistakable stamp on Frank Sinatra's signature showstopper, "My Way." Originally recorded in 1970, but only released on vinyl as part of an Italian compilation, the song is making its U.S. debut. 'SOUL SISTERS' also includes five songs previously unreleased anywhere before: Margie Joseph's cover of The Temptations' "It's Growing," their follow-up to the hit "My Girl"; Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles' 1969 recording of "(1-2-3-4-5-6-7) Count The Days," which was originally cut by brother-and-sister duo Inez and Charlie Foxx; a cover of the Fontella Bass classic "Rescue Me" recorded in 1970 at the famed Muscle Shoals studio by Dee Dee Warwick-Dionne's sister; "Ain't Nothing Gonna Change Me" by The Sweet Inspirations, a quartet of back-up singers who stepped out of the background in 1968 for a string of R&B hits; and "I Ain't That Easy To Lose" by Bettye Swann, who had hit in 1967 with "Make Me Yours."

'SOUL BROTHERS' presents 16 cuts recorded between 1967 and 1973 featuring music by Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Bobby Womack and Percy Sledge, as well as a talented group of underappreciated singers such as Arthur Conley, Percy Wiggins and James Carr.

"Can't Stop A Man In Love," the album opener, is a previously unreleased gem by "Wicked" Wilson Pickett, the unforgettable R&B singer who died earlier this year. Recorded at Muscle Shoals in 1972, the song is one of the few remaining unreleased tracks by Pickett. SOUL BROTHERS features three more unreleased songs, including the unmistakable voice of Percy Sledge covering Aretha Franklin's hit "Baby, Baby, Baby"; "What A Woman Really Means," a song smooth-soul crooner Donny Hathaway recorded in 1973 during a session for his album Extensions Of A Man; and "Rome (Wasn't Built In A Day)," a Sam Cooke cover recorded in 1967 by Arthur Conley, a singer discovered by fellow Georgian Otis Redding.
