Willie Mitchell may have best been known as the man who signed AL Green to Hi Records, a Memphis based soul label who's impact is still felt around the world today, but Willie recorded a number of albums before the Hi Records days. Four of those are are today on vinyl for the first time in decades, including Ohh Baby, You Turn Me On (1967).

"This album, which was repackaged and retitled Soul Serenade a year after its original release, catches Willie Mitchell in superb form, not only as an arranger but as a leader fronting a first-rate ensemble. Apart from a somewhat predictable chorus on 'Soulfinger,' everything here has some subtlety in its presentation -- details in the arrangements that surprise on repeated listening, and a crispness in the recording (this is some of the best-sounding stereo soul music of its period) that makes the repeated listening fun." — AllMusic
