3.0 out of 5 stars Not to the usual form. 5 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ever since I first purchased Vol 5, I've endeavoured to buy every one of the Good times albums. Vols 1 - 5 are fantastic, with a great mix of music from Soul - House and Funk - Drum and Bass. The previous albums have really been well thought out and bring the carnival vibe into your living room.

However, with volume 7 I can't help but feel Norman and the team are starting to run out of tracks! They album is enjoyable and theres a couple of great tracks, but compared to previous releases, it doesn't quite match up.

Its an album you'll listen to every now and again, maybe when you're bored of hearing your favourites, but unfortunatley its not one that you'll be reaching for when you're in the mood to party!

Lets hope Vol.8 recaptures the magic of the others.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Good Times Stutter 8 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Norman Jay MBE returns again at the helm of a two cd collection of records under the 'Good Times' banner, this time accompanied with the legend 'Let the Good Times Roll'. The questions is, after six previous editions and prior to the release of a later specifically themed edition ('Good Times London'), are the 'Good Times' still as enjoyable as ever?

The collection opens with the dark tinged 'Let It Roll', which was playing constantly during 1990 as the short lived genre of Hip House began to run out of creative steam. It might once have been considered essential fare but it isn't perhaps the best opener to a collection such as this - and it isn't because the genre didn't have better records available to choose from (The Richie Rich reworking of the Jungle Brothers' 'I'll House You' immediately springs to mind) - and this idiosyncracy continues with 'Only You' by Charles Dockins (featuring Lynette Smith), which is one of those instantly forgettable house records which lacks any sense of originality or real creativity. From here we are forcibly dragged back to the much slower paced 'He's a Friend' by Eddie Kendricks - which is immediately recognisable as the type of record likely to appeal to Jay's soulful sensibilities. This is soon followed by Lupe Fiasco's 'Kick Push' - which sounds much like any other commercially produced Hip Hop in recent years, and certainly wasn't representative of a new star rising as was predicted at the time. There are further slower paced nostalgic excursions (both real and pastiche) before the launching of another cliche laden 4/4 house styling - 'Keep on Tryin' by Antoine Clamaran and Emily Chick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good times review 18 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Just bought this compilation and think it contains some nice soulful sounds to play early doors in a night. Eddie Kendricks 'he's a friend ' is an awesome and there is a really good house version of Antoine Clamaran - Keep On Trying (Hot 22 Mix)
on cd1. I love all the good times compilations i've bought so far and this is definately one i like as well. Very good value as well.
