Album of the Day
When it came to '60s soul, Sam Moore and Dave Prater truly were DOUBLE DYNAMITE. Released at the end of 1966, the Atlantic album saw the pair consolidate the success of their “Hold On, I'm A-Comin'” breakthrough; Sam & Dave had perfected their gospel-influenced call-and-response vocals, and with the Stax Studios house band (made up of members of Booker T. and the M.G.'s) behind them, the duo were unstoppable. The third ingredient in the hit-making formula was the material, and songwriters Isaac Hayes and David Porter came up with some greats here, including “When Something is Wrong With My Baby,” “You Got Me Hummin',” “Said I Wasn't Gonna Tell Nobody” and “Soothe Me” - all four of which reached the Pop as well as R&B chart. On DOUBLE DYNAMITE, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Sam & Dave are explosive from start to finish.
