4.0 out of 5 stars Solid And Rewarding 19 Jan 2011
The initial 'Back Beats' series extended over ten issues, with the promise that further volumes might follow. This release is part of the promised second batch, being Volume 11 in the series "conceived and compiled with love by Ian Dewhirst". The stated aim of the collection remains the same, to "entertain and educate" whilst bringing "some of the best music in the world from some of the greatest independent labels over the past 50 years..(using)...only the full 12" or album versions". This is a sentiment previously expressed by Dewhirst in his previous role as conceiver and compiler of the 'Original Mastercuts' collection - a series that provided a musical education in quality black music. Since the demise of the 'Original Series' Dewhirst has continued his engaging in the issuing of quality driven music compilations, always displaying the light touch expertise and willingness to guide, in a manner that is never patronising.

For this volume, Dewhirst has chosen to pick eleven tracks from the late to mid 1970s Disco period, as suggested by the title 'Yowsah Yowsah Yowsah' (a refrain lifted fron Chic's 'Dance'). It opens with the Moment Of Truth's 'Helplessly' (1976), taken from New York's Salsoul label, which features a driving rhythm supported by typically opulent orchestral support, of a style so beloved by Dewhirst. First Choice will be known to many for their 'Armed And Extremely Dangerous' (featured on Volume Three in this series ' Philly Freedom'), here they supply 'The Player' (1974), another orchestrated groove (with vibes) taken from Philly Groove Records. Eddie Holman's 'This Will Be A Night To Remember' (1977) is of a faster paced commercial aesthetic, miles away from 1970's 'Hey There Lonely Girl'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value 2 Mar 2013

So far haven't been disappointed with any of my Backbeats purchases. I already had several of these tracks - some on 7" vinyl but love it from start to finish. Fave track possibly the first "Helplessly" by Moment of Truth - awesome.
