5.0 out of 5 stars almost mystical, faraway quality about it, 14 April 2014

This review is from: After the Disco (Audio CD)
My interest in this Album was spurred by a review of it, in the ‘Times newspaper; I found it very listenable, and have not wanted to skip any track on this CD. It has an almost mystical, faraway quality about it, which I find appealing; well worth the money….

This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
If you like the sounds of the sixties, this is a compilation for you. Having ‘Crystal Blue Persuasion’ on it makes it worth it, if only for that, but there are many very worthy tracks 0n here. I recall first hearing ‘Mony Mony’ years ago, but this compilation has really made me appreciate their work.

For example, ‘Loved One’, is a brilliant composition; well worth the money

This review is from: Nineteen Sixty Six (Audio CD)
This compilation starts with a wonderful Northern Track, and throughout it, it’s got a moody, mysterious, far away, type of sound about it, created by Little Willie John, and wonderfully arranged by David Axelrod and H.B. Barnum.
Little Willie John had a wonderful voice, illustrated by the different styles of music featured here; so sad that he went the way he did. In this CD we can, at least, enjoy his artistry.

This compilation is well worth having, at the price I see on the site as I write this review. An excellent selection from the early Bowie, (sorry Jones), a bluesy Rod Stewart and the birth of Northern Soul, in the soul tracks included here...

4.0 out of 5 stars a considerable number of the tracks...any list of northern soul tracks, 1 Nov 2013
If you want a compilation with a considerable number of the tracks that feature high up any list of northern soul tracks, this is the one for you. As previously commented on, the only disappointment is the remake of `Tainted Love'.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...get out your dancing shoes!!!...., 24 Sep 2013
This is the genuine article; get out your dancing shoes!!! 4/4 beats typified by Little Edith's `I Couldn't Take It' or that intense, mysterious sound, of all the other lesser-known recording studios, and all those artists, who never saw fame; this is Northern Soul. If you like 60s Soul, you'll like this compilation...

4.0 out of 5 stars Northern Girls? If you like R&B screamers, this is for you..., 24 Sep 2013
This is not a Northern Soul Compilation; it is a compilation of good R&B tracks that would probably have been familiar to some Modernists of the time. As such it has some real `R&B screamers' on it, but it is a very early 60s collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars a fine compilation of Joyful Southern Soul Songs..., 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like Southern Soul, or the work of Soul Artists who were also producers you’ll like this CD. It’s a fine compilation of Joyful Southern Soul Songs; that certain, ‘easy on the ear’ (for want of a better term!) southern sound: the horns, and the swirling strings, make it joyful. ‘Something New to Do’ is also a tribute to the talent of the artists (as well as Phillip Mitchell) and puzzling, in that some of these songs were never issued at the time of recording. This compilation can bring sunshine to any day!

4.0 out of 5 stars fine, southern soul renditions-they've got attitude; enjoy, 28 Feb 2013
I already have Backbeats `I get my groove', which has `Everything Good to You (Don't Have to Be Good for you)', on it, and this man's work is high quality. It's not so much funky (and what is wrong with funk?); O.K. track one is funky, but tracks two to 11 are fine, southern soul renditions; it's just that this genre of soul has a certain `funk', in its bass lines and horns, particularly when these tracks were recorded. They've got attitude; enjoy!
