For many this album was the cool soundtrack to the late 80's and with good reason. Launched at a time of cheesy chart domination by messer's Stock, Aitken and Waterman, this album has certainly dated less than anything that was produced from that stable. As soon as I recall the initial crackle when the needle hits the record quickly followed by Caron Wheelers succulent vocals with a the full bass line kicking in, I am instantly transported back to the magic of those warm summer days from my youth, the recording onto cassette to play in the car, windows down (no posh aircon in those days!). At the time especially in London thanks to the Pirate stations of the day, through which I discovered Soul II Soul in the 1st place, it felt that almost every car and home, every open window had this playing out of it.

I will concede that at times this albums tight budget origins are apparent, and it is a little rough around the edges. The inclusion of a fairly average live rap track, the tracks African dance and Dance sharing the same backing track, and yes some Chic orchestral samples are blatantly used, but the strong appeal remains and that sparse honest nature is part of the appeal. Free of over production and complex techniques, this was the moment when British Soul and what became R&B found its first true voice and confidence. From this point forward, there wasn't an R&B, Acid Jazz, Garage or a British soul act that didn't in some way owe Soul II Soul a debt or two.

This album definitely deserves its place amongst what can be called classic albums. The fact that 20 years on we are still writing about it says a great deal about this albums appeal. Sometimes a classic album is not necessarily the best of its genre but the most significant or a benchmark by which others are judged.

How strange to see this back in the top sellers, anything to do with 'I Love 1989'?? I saw it on the TV and it made me dig out my copy.
What foresight Jazzie had to call it Club Classics because it is just that - an absolute classic which defined music for over a generation.
If you dont own this CD then you should buy it - NOW!

Remember the days of cassette tapes? well I do, and I had this when it was on tape, my CD got scratched so I thought I'd replace it, and this is as good as the tape (well it would be, it's the same songs) but you always have to sing along with a soul II soul tune and this doesn't fail to get you singing.

A very good buy, it had everyone singing along when it was played.

I found it hard to find a good Soul to Soul compilation that includes all of their hits. This album is quite good if you want to experience the mood of the time when it was made.

Brought back great memories of these old tracks!
Great to have them in cd quality. My original copy was on cassette tape.
Particularly enjoy the bass on the opening track - keep on moving.

Bought this album for nostalgia's sake. It's still great after all these years. Jazzy's a legend. Keep on moving is still as good as was all those years ago.
