The In Crowd: The Story of Northern Soul
7.  The In Crowd: The Story of Northern Soul by Various Artists

9.  Definitive Impressions Vol.1: Defining Moments in 60's Soul from Chicago's Greatest Group by Impressions

Soul Master/25 Miles
10.  Soul Master/25 Miles by Edwin Starr

The Goldwax Story Vol.1
15.  The Goldwax Story Vol.1 by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "Goldwax stands for great soul records. If you like Stax you will like this; some are slower souhern soul records but for the most part this is prime 60's soul."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

The Very Best Of Etta James: The Chess Singles
16.  The Very Best Of Etta James: The Chess Singles by Etta James
The list author says:
  "The real Queen of Soul- and some classic songs, and her voice is more than capable of carrying the weaker ones. This is a budget priced cd with her chess singles but the sound quality is still good."
10.28   Used & New from: 3.38
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

The Kent Years
17.  The Kent Years by Ike and Tina Turner
The list author says:

13.70   Used & New from: 9.06
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Loma Records-Best of
18.  Loma Records-Best of by Various
The list author says:
  "But It's Alright is a soul classic, and you get some early Ike/Tina, the Marvellos. Not as distinct sounding as Motown or Stax, but some prime slices of sixties soul."
33.95   Used & New from: 12.72
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Chess Northern Soul
19.  Chess Northern Soul by Marlena Shaw
The list author says:
  "Some more choice cuts from the back-catalogue of Chess. A bit of an overlap with some of the above, but  Lets Wade in the Water by Marlena Shaw and More and More by Little Milton make this worthwhile"
6.74   Used & New from: 3.83
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Eight Gigs a Week : The Steve Winwood Years
20.  Eight Gigs a Week : The Steve Winwood Years by Spencer Davis Group

Vee Jay Records: Chicago Hit Factory
22.  Vee Jay Records: Chicago Hit Factory by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "Charly have been doing a great job with box sets, despite the low prices these are excellent boxsets; Vee Jay output stands besides the bigger labels and is often criminally overlooked"

The Instant And Minit Story
23.  The Instant And Minit Story by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "Another top notch boxset by Charly; a collection of some smaller US soul labels from the 60's, some real surprise gems here. Mini Skirts and Soul by Chris Kenner is the perfect mod song."
79.17   Used & New from: 36.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Moods of Marvin Gaye/in the Groove
24.  Moods of Marvin Gaye/in the Groove by Marvin Gaye
The list author says:
  "Marvin's peak in the sixties- there are a few "swing" songs which are really out of place. But everything else is flipping brilliant."
Used & New from: 29.99

Soul of Sue Records: New York City
25.  Soul of Sue Records: New York City by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "This is some of the better known tracks from Sue- the 1995 boxset is superior but much rarer and expensive and usually only available on import which will probably incur import tax."
16.67   Used & New from: 4.72
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)
