2.0 out of 5 stars The turd in the series 11 Sep 2013
By Yemsky
Verified Purchase
In my opinion the Backbeats series is fantastic.
At around £3-£4 you can buy these CDs blindly but do yourself a favour and check out some soundclips first before you buy "Memories and Souvenirs"
The promotional text "featuring music compiled from the archives of Columbia, Epic, Okeh, Philadelphia International, Buddah, RCA, Arista, Wand, Scepter, Musicor, Date, King, Dynamo, Look, Despenza, Garrison, Hollywood, Kudu, CTI, Ariola, Motor City, Invictus, Hot Wax, Music Merchant and Hi" refers to the Backbeats series and NOT this particular compilation. As other reviewers have already pointed out this is a compilation ONLY of tracks from Ian Levine's Motorcity label.
The Motorcity sound features good to great Soul vocalists with weak to nasty backing tracks dominated by drum programming and synthesisers which haven't aged well in the decades since (most) of them were recorded.
I am not even going to say that after more than 50 compilations it was just a matter of time before one would slip through Ian Dewhirst's Quality Control. After all, judging by some of the positive reviews there are obviously people who actually like this sound but for me this one is the turd within the Backbeats series.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK music, wrong label 7 July 2013
Verified Purchase
There is nothing wrong with the music on this collection, although it focuses more on the early 90's than I expected.

The problem is the title. OK, you cannot argue that is is a collection of "Contempoary Soul From The 80s 90s and 00s", but that is just a part of the truth as the album is a collection of songs from the British label Motorcity. making it a lot narrower than I expect from a Backbeat collection.

"Songs from Motorcity Recordings" or some similar would have been a more appropriate titel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak collection overall 16 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Only got this for the wonderful 'All Over The World' by Chuck Jackson. Aside from this and the Billy Griffin track, the other compositions are 'stompers' culled from the Motorcity label, which have a unique sound but are rather formulaic. Having said this, I'm pleased to own the Chuck Jackson and Billy Griffin tracks in exchange for £3.00.
