The "In Crowd - The Ultimate Collection" from the original style movement 1958-1967 was a monumental music collection, and the fact that it managed to collect such a wide and eclectic movement made the album essential. What stood out was the fact that the album for the most part stayed away from the obvious tracks and wasn't simply a greatest hits of the sixties album. This collection is a true follow up and cd 1 and two are in fact titled cd 5 and 6. Thankfully the cd cases are digipack, not the flimsy card that came with the previous set. This collection also sets the net slightly wider, covering 1954 (though these earlier records would only be released in the Uk in the 1960's) up until 1968. Unlike the previous collection some blues legends are included such as Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Howlin Wolf. Once again several Motown artists show up represented by some more obvious tracks (please Mr postman, its the same old song, needle in a haystack, uptight) and some essential classics that are less well-known (Heaven must have sent you, just walk in my shoes and i'll keep holding on, as covered by true-mods the Action.) Noticeable is the fact that there are few UK artists here; John Mayall and Chris Farlowe, Small Faces and Spencer Davis Group. The John Mayall songs are always top notch however I still can't see why Chris Farlowe has once again been included while important artists such as Pretty things, PP Arnold, Sorrows, Creation or the (underrated) Birds have this time been ommitted. Neither does there seem much point in the Spencer Davis Group song as the original (and superior) version is on the previous collection, and there are several more noteworthy Spencer Davis songs. As far as I can tell there are no Atlantic records represented here either. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars raves from the grave 7 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have most of these songs on 45rpm and as such I wanted to bring my collection up to date media-wise. It is a great mix of songs but my biggest disappointment is one which seems to be common with these compilations. The producers try to improve the quality of the original disc to appeal to modern tastes. I have yet to find one instance where this has worked. In this case "Treat her right" and "Baby scratch my back" in my opinion have had the treatment. Whatever has happened to the raucous horn riff? And why is Slim now sounding as if he is singing in the bathroom?

That aside if you are interested in 60's soul, rnb or rock n roll crossover you should buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you love me, I'll go crazy 2 Jun 2011
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Instant nostalgia for someone of a certain age. Of the clubs named, the Flamingo tended more towards jazzier material - often organ based stuff from the likes of Jimmies Smith or McGriff, or Big John Patton (think Blue Note) - and they also had Ska sessions appealing to the Jamaicans. Both the Marquee and the 100 Club featured mainly guitar based bands and records would include Chess blues and similar (which material probably wouldn't have been heard at the Flamingo!). The Marquee was also the usual host club for big name visitors from Chicago like Muddy Waters. The Scene had Guy Stevens who could feature almost anything but was likely to include some from the UK Sue label (like "Little Latin Lupe Lu" from the Righteous Brothers included here).

The set gets off to a good start with Marin Gaye's "One more Heartache" which I'd not heard before but approve of strongly. We then get Sugar Pie Desanto's "Soulful Dress". This one's from the blues drenched Chess label but it has a funky touch so fits well. Then it's the better known and jazzier Billy Stewart's "Summertime" which moves along nicely. Next is Nina Simone - good feel on this one. And so on. It's a pretty good mix.

There's perhaps more Motown than I would expect. But then, I was always a Stax/Atlantic man so maybe I mentally edited these out at the time or my memory is selective! They're good dance tracks and most likely lead the way to Northern Soul. There are less overtly obvious items on this set compared with its predecessor though I could have done without "Uptight", "Nowhere to run", "The Same old Song", and "Sunny". Nothing against them but they do get played rather a lot. Happy to have Bobby Hebb's flipside to "Sunny" though, which I hadn't heard before.
