On this 20-track collection, you'll hear Mitchell's skills as an arranger and composer collide with his trumpet playing skills and production chops; an irresistible combination that produced. While Mitchell and his crew would tackle everything from "What Now My Love" to "Sunshine of Your Love" with a Memphis funky edge, this collection stays pretty much with the dynamite originals that were the group's shining moments, including "20-75," "The Crawl," "Buster Browne," "Up-Hard," "Poppin'," "Toddlin'," "Teenie's Dream," "Big Power House," and the King.

His cover of the Ousley/Dixon-penned "Soul Seranade," which rivals that of King Curtis, is here, as well as his first Hi single, "The Crowd, Part 1," and his first chart-topper, "20-75.
