Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This attractively priced 2CD replaces two separately issued CDs that appeared on the Débutante label in 1997 and 1998. The title of this reissue is slightly confusing as the original releases were called This Is Northern Soul Volumes One and Two.

They were much heralded at the time as several of the items had never been officially released before, but were well known from the clubs, where scratchy acetates and treasured bootlegs had been played to Northern Soul fans. While the sound quality was obviously better on the CD releases, and the general availability much welcomed, some of the tracks had clearly been transferred from vinyl pressings and some of them were in reprocessed fake stereo.

For this reissue on the Motown label, through the Universal Music Group, only the original Detroit analogue masters have been used for the digital remastering. Reprocessed stereo has been quite rightly eliminated and there is thankfully no vinyl surface noise, representing a significant improvement for most of the tracks. The Temptations' previously unreleased Forever In My Heart was included in the speeded-up master used in the clubs before and is now restored to the proper speed, as found on their Lost And Found CD, and The Andantes' (Like A) Nightmare, which had surfaced briefly as a V.I.P. single in 1964, is ten second longer than before (but check out the extended stereo remix on The Motown Box).

Carolyn Crawford's lovely single, written and produced by Smokey Robinson, also gains a couple of seconds and is now cleaner sounding. Frank Wilson's Do I Love You (Indeed Do) was in a great alternative stereo mix with a slightly different vocal to the familiar single, and remains so on this.

Format: Audio CD
Can't really top the previous reviewer, that guy obviously knows his stuff. However I can offer a review as a non-northern soul fan. I love sixties music, and motown soul in particular and there's nothing better than discovering great tracks that might have passed you by. The problem with northern soul music is that often its there for its rarity and not the quality. Even worse is the fact that the majority of post-sixties northern soul songs are absolute stinkers- horrible wannabe disco songs without any real soul or beat. Luckily this great collection is more sixties motown than shoddy northern soul, and even the 70's tracks (I ain't going nowhere by Junior Walker and Gladys Knight's No One Could Love You More) are absolute corkers. Generally the tracks represented here are as good as the more well-known motown tracks and certainly more diverse. While a few tracks might not be up to the quality of the rest of the album, its easy to overlook those tracks given the overall quality of the music. The great thing about these songs is that they don't show up on many other compilations so if you love sixties motown then its an essential purchase.

This CD is simply brilliant, bringing together all of the more 'rarer' Motown classics together, such as 'I'll Keep Holding On' by the Marvelettes and 'Just Walk in My Shoes' by Gladys Knight at the Pips. However, there are only 24 tracks on this CD, not 28 as shown on the Amazon website, but the CD is certainly a good buy.

This is a must-have album for any serious fan of northern soul, with a limited budget (how many have the spare £500 or so demanded for a good vinyl copy of "Do I love you? ('deed I do)"?). Highlights include "Suspicion" by the Originals, "I'll keep on holding on" by the Marvelettes and that old Northern favourite, "Just a little misunderstanding" by the Contours. Frances Nero's "Keep on Loving You" is also worth checking out. Full marks to Motown for making these tracks available. Of all of them, I only remember seeing "What more could a boy ask for" by the Spinners on any previous Motown compilation (it was the best of a pretty poor selection called "From the Vaults" which came out about 15 years ago).

Anybody buying this for the beat ballad You're Gonna Love My Baby should note that it's not on this - at least it's not on my copy! Fine set though, the 2 Monitors tracks being standouts for me.

Clever idea this, pull Motown's archives not for the usual hits but those rare tracks that made it on the Northern Soul scene. It really works too, with standouts like Andantes 'Like A Nightmare' (very reminiscent of 'Heatwave' but that's no bad thing) and Kim Weston's brilliant 'You Hit Me Right Where It Hurt Me'. Some of the tracking is out on my copy so if you try and isolate individual tracks they end with a snippet of the next track's drag-roll drum or begin with a clipped burst of intro. Pity, as this is a great collection.

I have been a long time fan of Soul in all its variations and have to say it is my favourite music choice. If you are from Northern Ireland or have access to the web tune into U105 radio station on Thursday nights from 10pm to midnight to hear two of the best Soul presenters ever Soulfly and Mozquito and hear the best soul music like what is on this cd .
