5.0 out of 5 stars How could I have missed this? 16 July 2004
By Hot Wax
Format:Audio CD
How could I have possibly missed this cd? I thought that I was quite an afficionado of soul music, but I have been humbled. I have been brought to my knees. The pulse of soul music is in Dave Godin's fingers. This collection of songs is the reason that I've continued to return to soul music throughout the years. And after listening to this collection, I will never stray far again. I've been purchasing Northern Soul collections for the obscurities, but this cd is in a class of its own.

This is a damn fine selection of lesser-known soul sides. Picking out a few from the 25 choice cuts is nigh-on impossible. If you are into your soul in a big way then Dave Godin's collections (this is volume 1 from 3 to date) are indeed soulfully and meticulously compiled. So much so that the detailed sleeve notes highlight how he insisted on the purer soul mono version of Irma Thomas' 'Anyone Who Knows What Love Is' rather than the lighter re-cut (for a direct comparism buy 'Time Is On My Side', the also-excellent 24 track Irma Thomas CD) claiming there is no "just" in soul music; well not in the context of this track. That does not mean to say that 'I'd Rather Go Blind' by Etta James (featured on Vol 3)can be knocked for the same reason of course!
Another strength of this collection is you are going to struggle to locate vast chunks of the contents anywhere else. It should also serve to tempt you to explore certain artists that particularly grab your attention still further. My guess is that this CD plus the following Volume 2 & 3 offer-up new gems every time you slide this belting disc into your CD tray and press play. I bought all three volumes together and have had absolutely countless new ways of exposing the individual gems (try making a compilation tape or CD featuring just the female artists featured here, for example). Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Have A Little Mercy 19 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is an album that is redolent of both the English desire to have a hobby and to collect and of the Americna ability to produce soul music of unrivalled intensity. I bought this after near hysterical reviews in the music press, and was, initially a little disappointed that it wasn't the high octane Stax-like soul that I really like. However, I listened again, with the extensive liner notes in my lap, and was transported back intime to an era when soul music meant something. The range of talent is incredible, and every single track boasts quality. Particular faves; Have a Little Mercy, by Jean Wells; which is so powerfully delivered its scary, yet tender, and Raw Spitt Songs to Sing.

5.0 out of 5 stars O Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! It's All the Way Soulful 27 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
You see a guy in his late fifties with a beard, he's wearing a polo neck and a tweed sport's jacket - you mistake him for your old geography teacher or a trendy priest you once saw preach about digging Jesus. Come on, you see a geezer like that and you dismiss the poor sod, wonder what time his mother wants him home. But, but, but - that man might well be Dave Godin, the Deep Soul prophet, who has compiled three albums of soulful bliss. For an anorak, Mr Godin is the most righteous of the breed, gathering together the deepest, effective soul recorded. Stretching from the dawn of the sub-genre (Deep Soul is rich with emotion, tragedy and elation combine, voices roar and soar - it's closer to its gospel roots than... well, shallow soul) to the revisitations in the earliest nineteen eighties, not that it's easy to discern early from late. This is music like walking in the rain, it drenches and refreshes you. You'll recognise only a few of the artists, the rest are buried in the vaults - Godin is an archaeologist, unearthing the telling bones of some powerful singers and tunes. So, please, for your own sake's, take this grey bearded geek by the hand and walk with him, let the rain fall, get wet, love him, he's worth it - he has gifted you these Deep Soul Treasures - and that's some giving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is perfection possible? 17 April 2009
By Epicguy
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to this collection via a friend who knew of my love for Northern Soul. This is not Northern Soul but simply music so powerful it will lift your soul and your life. I have lived with this album for over 10 years and will never tire of it. Dave Godin (RIP) is in heaven right now for the joy, beauty and power he has shared with us all. Please forgive the hyperbole but this is the greatest album ever! I feel like John Peel after listening to Teenage Kicks and award this 10 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense 4 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to this cd for a few days now, It wasn't what I was expecting (I'm a big fan of "The Birth of Soul" series) this cd is full of heart wrenching deep soul ballads about life, love, and lost. the cd takes a few listens because it's not full of hit's (look elsewhere fore that) but belive me the music will burn it's self "deep" into your soul. intense and essential.
