Eagle-eyed collectors will notice something similar about this new August 2011 3CD set - it's a repackaging of 3 Volumes already released in the 2000's. I bought them then and they were fantastic (I also bought the 2LP vinyl versions). But there are changes on all three on these new discs that need pointing out - here are the details...

The original 2002 "After Hours" (1965 to 1973) had 24 tracks - the new version in this set has 25 - the running order is exactly the same except that Track 17 "Call On Me" by The Dynells is an addition (it's been moved from Track 26 on the original "After Hours 3").

The original 2003 "After Hours 2" (1964 to 1972) had 26 tracks, but this 2011 version has 25 - and there is also some alteration of the track line up. Tracks 4 and 19 from the original CD have been dropped - "Lil Ole Man (Uptight - Everything's Alright)" by Bill Cosby and "That's What You Do To Me" by Deon Jackson. "Yes To The Lord" by The Stovell Sisters was Track 26 on the original CD, but has been moved to Track 18. Track 25 is "West 4th Street" by Valerie & Bobby Capers (it's been moved from Track 29 on the original "After Hours 3"). Outside of these changes, the track running order remains the same as the original.

The original 2005 "After Hours 3" (1965 to 1974) had 29 tracks - the new version has 25. Tracks 1 to 18 remain the same running order - "Frantic Escape" by The Innocent Bystanders was Track 28 on the original CD and is now moved to Track 19. Tracks 20 to 25 are the same. Of the remaining four - two have been moved to Disc 1 and 2 as already noted above - the one dropped is "Astral Fire" by The Mystic Moods.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw Northern Soul 8 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Perhaps not for everyone, as more often than not the more pop friendly Northern Souls songs stand out on compilation lists, but this is the more raw side of this wonderful way of life that true Northern Soulies might appreciate more than the casuals. And admittedly, I'm more of a casual having taken on my liking of Northern Soul from my parents, but my Dad in particular enjoys these classical tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 July 2013
By Jimski
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
It is great that there are so many new compilations of soul music of all types around at the moment and that most of them have "new" examples. This is a great compilation with some items I remember from original release but many i hadn't heard before. Smashing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essence of Northern Soul 26 Mar 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I have been a great fan of the Northern Soul genre for more years than I care to remember and have reached the stage where new compilations appear which contain just a handful of tracks which I have not encountered elsewhere. This 'After Hours' compilation stands out in that I had only got a very small number of tracks on other CDs or even on 7" vinyl. To say that these three CDs were an absolute joy to experience would not do them justice. From the opening track "You Hit Me ...." which is the Alice Clark version rather than the more usual Kim Weston through to the interesting "Ain't That Terrible" by Roy Redmond rather than the more usual Capitols version I was engrossed. It is fair to say that there is not a weak track included in this set, even Ella Fitgerald turns in a wonderful performance of "Get Ready". The only down side is that I purchased this compilation as a download and so am devoid of any descriptive notes to accompany the tracks. I would love to be able to get more information about some of these gems.
