For the very first time you can now get your hands on a definitive collection of the funk and soul sensation that is The Bar-Kays. Robinsongs are proud to be the first label to combine the Warner Brothers, Volt, Stax and Mercury repertoire to make this a unique compilation that covers the period from 1967 through 1989. The package features every single one of their Top 10 R&B Hits. Other tracks of note included in this package are 'Let's Have Some Fun', 'Dirty Dancer', 'Attitudes' and the full-length album version of 'Money Talks' plus the dance floor smash 'Sexomatic'. The history of the Bar-Kays is one of tragedy and triumph, plane crash to Gold Discs, Otis Redding to Isaac Hayes, which is all wonderfully summed up in a 24 page color booklet including an essay by Christian John Wikane, a New York based music journalist with contributions by the band's former front man Larry Dodson.
