With Northern Soul's Classiest Rarities, ace label Kent, in the shape of the ever-reliable Ady Croasdell, have compiled a scorching selection of 24 mostly recent northern soul discoveries. The inclusion of Audrey Matthews' simply sublime "I have No Choice" is especially timely, as current plays from newly cut acetates have generated a rapturous reception throughout the scene. Elsewhere, Dan Folger's regret-etched beat ballad, "The Way of the Crowd; the legendary cover-up, "What Happened to Yesterday", by Mr Soul; and the Delfonics falsetto festooned, "You'll Get Enough", top many a "wanted list". However, there is one track that makes this compilation absolutely essential--jazz diva Karmello Brooks' potently crooned "Tell Me Baby". Originally issued on jazz label Milestone in 1966, this self-penned fully orchestrated up-tempo slice of soul alchemy was actually the flip-side. --Chris D King

top notch northern soul album some rare songs on here for the die hard northern soul fans and some mods i shall expect.
few upbeat songs to keep the dancers happy and a lot of mellow tunes for you to kick back and chill too . a must for you rare soul people top tune for me on the album is (the dellfonics you'll get enough) but you make your own mind up

This is one of my current favourite discs at the moment.First track sets the standard Eddie Whitehead,JUST YOUR FOOL, what a voice, the mans got soul down to his socks .If you dont Know this track the albums worth buying for this track alone.Track 3 is the imaginations version of Strange Neighborhood good record but not as good as Dean Parish's version.Track 6 is another belter by the Millionaires, AND THE RAINS CAME,. There isn't a bad track on this disc.As with all Kent records well recorded. Tracks compiled by Adrian Croesdell this man has got an encyclopaedic Knowledge of all things soulful but more then that he has great taste in music. Oh yes and he whites great sleave notes. In short if you love Northern Soul you will love this.

so many northern compilation cds are dissapointing these days, and their sound quality is often second rate. This Kent compilation has been in my collection for a couple of years and still gets played. Its credible, classy and atmospheric. tracks are not just there for rare/obscurity value, they reflect changing dancefloor tastes. Excellent sleeve notes and thorough research. If you want to buy a seriously good Northern Soul cd, buy this, if only for Mr. Souls 'what happened to yesterday.

As per my other reviews, it's worth checking first to see if the intended recipient already has more than 50% of these tracks in their collection somewhere; however, unlike with all those interchangeable 'Wigan 70th Anniversary Keepin The Faith Where's My Beer Towel Vol IX' compilations, unless he or she is something of an anorak they probably won't, and absolutely certainly not in their original format.
This one has real variety.
There are one or two oddities (Barbara Redd is country and western, basically, though good for all that) and some very well-known classics (eg Mr Soul, The Imaginations) but the overall picture is fresh, from gentle slowies like The Rockmasters to the amphetamine-paced Pat Powdrill, and from the foundational early 60s R&B of The Diplomats to the smooth 70s of Unique Blend; pretty much every track is a winner.
Karmello Brooks is my favourite track, oddly; oddly because it's by no means the best song. But it's the back story to the recording - young contract jazz singer allowed to record what she wanted on the b-side of some unlistenable jazz drivel - that I like.
If you want to pick up a CD which gives you an idea of the sort of 20-track set which might feasibly be played nowadays - in 2011, not 1974 - at a reasonably progressive northern soul night, look no further.
