I first came across “39-21-46” on a late-90s Rhino compilation Beg, Scream and Shout: The Big Ole Box of 60’s Soul, which is exactly what is says it is: 144 songs that are a great jumping off point for getting into this music, as nearly all of the great soul artists are represented. And if there isn’t enough Motown or Stax here, well, they have their own box sets, don’t they?
