    Recording information: ??/??/1960-06/01/1969.
    Most of the Ace/Kent series of compilations drawn from the Atlantic vaults have concentrated on specific styles or eras. They have avoided duplication of tracks and generally favoured the obscure over the familiar. However, label boss Ted Carroll has indulged his own preferences on WHERE IT'S AT: SOUL IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.
    Most of Atlantic's major players on the '60s soul scene, Clarence Carter, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Don Covay, and Solomon Burke are represented by several tracks. Many an album has boasted the likes of "Sweet Soul Music," "Land Of 1000 Dances," and "When A Man Loves A Woman." But here they rub shoulders with tracks that are seldom repackaged and songs that are better known in other artists' hands. Especially enjoyable is the juxtaposition of two instrumentals, Herbie Mann's "Philly Dog" and the more familiar "Soul Finger" by the Bar-kays. Club-friendly Latin soul sounds come courtesy of King Curtis & Willie Bobo's "My Girl Sloopy" and Charlie Palmieri's "Uptight (Everything's Alright)." The inclusion of "In The Midnight Hour" in both Wilson Pickett's original version and as an organ-driven instrumental by Little Mac & The Boss Sounds makes for interesting comparison.
