Backbeats continue their themed exploration of the US black music scene with this compilation that features 23 soul tracks primarily sourced from the mid-seventies.

Highlights include Patti Austin's cover of the Northern Soul classic 'Didn't Say a Word' that is almost identical to Brenda Holloway's Motown version. Patti Jo's vocal delivery on 'Make Me Believe in You' is faultless and 'This Time Around' by S.O.U.L. is mid-tempo soul at its finest. Gwen McRae's 'Lead Me On' features a cool re-occurring piano riff and a guitar solo as she sings her heart out - it packs a mighty punch despite being a little over 2 minutes long and it's the best song here.

Unexpectedly, there are some fillers and also two songs that don't belong on a compilation with the sub-title '70s Modern Soul Stunners' - David Ruffin & Eddie Kendricks 'I Couldn't Believe It' is from 1988 and Damaris Carbaugh's 'What About My Love' is from 1984. The former is representative of the overall sound here but the Damaris track sounds totally out of place and how it found its way onto this album is a mystery.

With a generous playing time of 79 minutes, some of the songs are not as dance floor friendly as the 'Dance Floor Revolution' title implies. It is, however, mostly a very enjoyable listen and it offers outstanding value for money. It's worth noting that this CD contains 23 tracks, not the 25 tracks listed here - 'Cuz it's You Girl' by the James Walsh Gypsy Band and 'How Can I Be Sure' by Randy Jackson do NOT feature.

A super collection of mainly 1970's "Modern Soul" rarities.
If you don't own these releases on other compilations this release provides excellent value for money.
