    If it’s Memphis Soul I’d love some Al Green, maybe one of his lesser known albums. That said he seems to big an artist for what usually is released under classics.

    On the Wilson Pickett theme, it's seems that MOV is rereleasing The Exciting Wilson Picking at the end of the week. It should be an improvement on the 4MWB reissues.

    I think they're starting to go with bigger names for Classics.

    Diana Ross/The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, or of course Marvin Gaye... I dont know the availability of some of their albums but imagine some would be in need of a good pressing.

    Maybe! I’d also love some rarer Marvin Gaye, that said I’m not sure what isn't available unless you go very early in his career. Even most of his duet records are pretty readily available now.

    This is my guess for now.

    Isn't all Motown considered soul music? If so, "Motown Soul" seems redundant. If it is Motown, I'd expect a hint like DS for Detroit Soul (also Motown is a label, and they gave us label hints last month). I think MS = Memphis Soul.

    I'll go out on a limb and say "David" by David Ruffin. Also known as "The Unreleased Album."

    I think we’d get Green is Blues before we got that, in fact, why doesn’t Fat Possum have Gets Next to You in print?

    If they ever do Green, I request a sclusie of Lay it Down please.

    You are probably right, I just says what I wants :)

    Last time Fat Possum released it was 2012. Don’t know if that’s still in print.
