This treasure house of songs comes courtesy of a rich depository of artists all dealing with the issues raised by the need to work for your money – including hits by the o’jays, bb king, john lee hooker, ray Charles, and peggy lee.

When Barrett Strong sang ‘Money - that’s what I want!’ the R&B singer from Mississippi touched a raw nerve in the public consciousness. We can all be high-minded moralists and the idea of singing the praises of filthy lucre can seem distasteful even outrageous. Yet there was cause to smile and give way to popular sentiment when Barrett spoke so shamelessly of his basic needs. 40 rich pickings!
