This entry in the STAX PROFILES series compiles some of the early 1960s recordings of Carla Thomas, daughter of the soul singer Rufus Thomas and Aretha Franklin's predecessor as Queen Of Soul. Collecting an extensive variety of tracks recorded before her mid-'60s pairing with Otis Redding, it includes her version of "You'll Lose a Good Thing" as well as the vintage Stax soul of "I've Got No Time to Lose" and the classic romantic pop R&B of "Gee Whiz, Look at His Eyes."
