Product Description

* Northern Soul fans may have missed out on Kent's two Goldwax Story CDs and our single artist releases due to the preponderance of ballads on them. This is a CD especially for them - all the Goldwax dancers on one disc.

* Ady Croasdell's compilation includes half a dozen previously unreleased recordings that Goldwax completists will have to have. They are very classy ones too - both Phillip & The Faithfuls tracks are wonderful. In addition there are two Spencer Wiggins tracks recorded at Fame by Goldwax and never legally released before, including the sensational `Let's Talk It Over' which is an accepted Northern Soul anthem from acetate plays.

* Other Northern favourites include Dorothy Williams' `The Well's Gone Dry', Percy Milem's `Call On Me' and James Carr's `A Losing Game' and `That's What I Want To Know'. Other big soul names include George Jackson, Dan Greer, the Ovations and Spencer Wiggins.

* The master tape version of the Ovations' `They Say' is so much better than the popular vinyl cut that it almost sounds like a new record. Modern soul is represented by Wee Willie Walker's stunning `I Don't Want To Take A Chance'.

Several well known tracks supported by the usual obscurities producing a generally excellent listening CD for those monotonous car journeys!

UPTEMPO SOUL TRACKS -FOR REAL 15 Aug. 2009
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One disc 57 minutes approximately. The remastered sound is clean and warm sounding. The accompanying booklet is informative,with details on each track.

This is a great collection of dance music,popularly known as "Northern Soul". Every track is designed to get your feet (and your body) moving. The various artists represented are a good cross-section of Goldwax Records' stable of performers. This tiny label was second only to the mighty Stax Records in releasing this type of music in the sixties. However,this music is not in emulation of the bigger labels sound.

Artists range from well known (James Carr,The Ovations,and a few others) to lesser known singers (the great Spencer Williams,Barbara Perry) to a track by Ivory Joe Hunter. But the the overall consideration here is the music,which blends together seamlessly. Included are a number of previously unissued tracks ("Lets Talk It Over" by Spencer Wiggins,"A Man Is A Mean Thing" by Barbara Perry,"I Don't Want To Take a Chance" by Wee Willie Walker among others) that give this collection even more weight for soul lovers.

The folks at Kent Records have put together a nice little package of good,uptempo soul music-no ballads to slow things down. If your taste runs to sixties soul before it became bland,slick product-this is a good collection to own.
