4.0 out of 5 stars Cds labelled incorrectly, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocked By The Stones (Audio CD)
The music is fantastic, and I knew all of the tracks beforehand so it was a no brainer to buy.
However on playing what was supposedly CD1 it turned out to be CD2 and vice versa. Is there no system of quality control in place?

4.0 out of 5 stars Packaging is not right!, 24 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all let me say that the music on this box set is absolutely fantastic and I have no fault with that whatsoever.
However getting access to it is another thing. It must have taken me 10 minutes of pulling and messing about to get the inner box out of the cardboard sleeve and once I'd put it back I had the same problem all over again. Also you can't read the book that's inside properly without the possibility of breaking the spine of the thing.
A standard 3 cd jewel box would have been much better, and I think Ace have tried to be too clever with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lack of track information spoils it, 11 Jan 2011
This is an excellent box set for the money, but I don't like the current Rhino trend of not providing track information, publishing credits etc (usually in a booklet). All you get is an invitation to view such information on the Rhino website! Doh! The recent Rhino compilations "Epic" and "Weekend Songs" also suffered from the same problem. I for one would sooner pay a little bit more and have this info to hand. Furthermore, the web site address mentioned in the box set doesn't work!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining!, 5 Feb 2010
This review is from: R&B Love Songs 2010 (Audio CD)
An excellent double cd with one or two tracks on the "poppy" side but none the worse for that. I found it thoroughly entertaining and this is coming from a die hard northern soul and southern soul fan. The earlier years compilations in the same series are good as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Value, 11 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an absolute belter of a box set for the money. All types of soul are represented, ranging from deep soul, soul ballads to tub thumping northern. A lot of rare tracks on show as well - unlike the other "100" type collections. First class!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sleepy Time, 30 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this album thinking that it would contain quality modern soul.
Instead I find it's music to drink horlicks to - utterly boring and tedious.
I know not all soul is suitable for the dance floor, but this album ought to be titled something like "chill out soul".
