We gave it an A

Imagine you’re at a garage sale. Under a pile of moldy sweaters, you discover a box of pristine soul 45s, a treasure trove of familiar hits such as James Brown’s ”Out of Sight” or Fontella Bass’ ”Rescue Me,” as well as obscure gems like the Dynamics’ ”Ice Cream Song” and Irma Thomas’ ”Wish Someone Would Care.” Stevie Wonder, Al Green, a brilliant Jackson 5 B side: It’s all in Beg, Scream & Shout!: The Big Ol’ Box of ’60s Soul. Okay, so this six-CD box set isn’t quite as exciting a discovery. But you’ll treasure it almost as much. A
