Product Description

* Three gals and a guy from New York, the Exciters were one of the most fabulously soulful acts to emerge from the 1960s girl group explosion, thanks in part to Brenda Reid, their lulu of a lead vocalist.

* The group's early 60s recordings have been reissued in recent times. This collection spotlights their subsequent more uptown sides for the Bang, Shout and RCA labels.

* Bang and Shout were owned by genius songwriter Bert Berns, who produced the quartet's four singles for the logos, released in 1966 and 1967. These include their hit version of `A Little Bit Of Soap' and `Weddings Make Me Cry', a Northern soul favourite of yore.

* Not long after Berns untimely death, the Exciters landed a new deal with RCA, where their recordings were overseen by another legendary producer, Larry Banks. Their spell at the label yielded another Northern pick, `Blowing Up My Mind', plus the album "Caviar & Chitlins".

* Eagerly awaited by collectors, all but two of the tracks on "Soul Motion" are making their CD debut.

The first 8 tracks on this cd are fantastic, outstanding in fact. The B sides are as good as their A sides, gems like 'I'm gonna get him someday' and the truly heart breaking 'Weddings make me cry' is simply brilliant. The majority of these tracks were written by Bert Berns (what a genius)and produced by him. The other half (just over half) are co-written and produced by Larry Banks - these are mediocre at very best, as they are bland, lacklustre and do nothing for Brenda Reids wonderful, soulful voice. Is this cd worth buying? Yes. I would gladly pay double to have the first 8 tracks in my collection.

A lost gem! 28 Aug 2013
By Paul Begler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a "must-have" collection for any Exciters, girl group, or Northern Soul fan. Brenda Reid's soulful voice teamed with the strong harmony of her backup singers proved that there was still life in the group after their pop hit "Tell Him".

Although I throughly enjoy every track in this collection, my all time favorite songs are "Always" and the provacative, (for its time), "Movin too Slow."

A few hits and lots of misses! 6 Aug 2009
By Paul Mulcahy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this cd and having been a big fan of The Exciters, I was very disappointed to find just a few tracks of significance, those being "A Little Bit of Soap" and "You Know It Ain't Right" - the more interesting! Nothing like their early material to make the heart and soul pound. Sorry, this contribution doesn't inspire me at all!
