Verified Purchase
The 'Talcum Soul' series of two previous CDs captured fairly obvious big past plays on the Northern Soul scene in good sound quality at a low price. Although there has been a huge surplus of Northern Soul compilations over previous years these were compiled by former Wigan Casino DJ and still scene legend Richard Searling and as such come from within the scene.
The philosophy continues here to good impact although fans who buy a lot of Goldmine label CDs will find a fair number on their 'Come Go With Us' compilation that they may already have.
Musically the selections are consistently good with a few standouts that haven't been compiled that much. In particular Betty Turner's 'Be Careful Girl' is a wonderful slice of slick, uptempo 60s soul that some may not know and it's always good to hear Billy Prestons' steamty mid-60s organ led club soul.
If you haven't already got the aforementioned Goldmine CD this is a good way to add to an emerging collection and some of the tracks do sound much better here than the occasional vinyl recording on the Goldmine release. The sleeve notes are thin but for the price it's difficult to complain.
Most enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Value 2 Mar 2008
Unlike a lot of Northern Soul compilations this CD is packed full of great tunes. There are probably only 2 tracks that i don't actually like and amongst the rest there are some absolute classics. The Ray Pollard - It's a sad thing track, is worth the price of the CD on it's own if you haven't already got it. I did have quite a few of the tracks already but if you don't have a copy of Homer Banks - 60 minutes of your love then you really should take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror. I don't think i could ever get tired of listening to Jerry Cook's version of I hurt on the other side either.

I haven't stopped playing this CD since i got it and I've ordered the rest of the series on the strength of this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars great cd but not worth over £15 30 Jan 2013
I have all the Talcum Soul cds and they are all great ! Having said that i would not pay over £15 for any one of them ! Talcum 3 has some superb tracks and will have you dancing to the music by the 3rd track

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid Collection for Completists 21 Jun 2006
By KC - Published on Amazon.com
Like the first two in the series, a solid roundup of northern soul/r&b of the 1960's (not including Motown or Philly) of course. The quality drops slightly so this one is really just for completists.

Like the CD cover, it's professional but not overly exciting nor was all that much creative effort expended in putting these tracks together. It's good, just not great.

(for great - check out Zealous Records Presents Soul Sides)
