4.0 out of 5 stars Great grooves, uneven sound, 1 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I fully agree with the other reviewer - the sound quality is uneven and really quite poor on several tracks. Don't expect the same quality as on a Kent issue. However, the music is splendid with a quite a few obscure tracks. If you can ignore the occasionally iffy sound this comp is well worth getting particularly as it's currently available quite cheaply.

This review is from: Groovesville USA (Audio CD)
Please don't let some of the reviews about the sound quality put you off buying - they almost deterred me from purchasing a great CD. OK, the sound is not wonderful on a few tracks but it's far from unlistenable and the quality of the music still shines through as it does from beginning to end on this fine collection of up-tempo Northern Soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation, 25 April 2014

Yet another excellent offering from Kent. The sound is of the high standard that we've come to expect from Kent/Ace and compiler Ady Croasdell's notes are, as ever, informative and amusing. A must for Northern Soul fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really worth getting, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really can't see what problem the second reviewer has with this comp - aside from a few 'obvious' inclusions the rest is obscure to rare and, more importantly, it's simply a great collection of up-beat dance tunes. If this doesn't put a smile on your face & a twitching in your feet there's something wrong with you. BUY!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!, 9 Sep 2013

This review is from: Northern Soul (Audio CD)
This is truly horrible. The tracks are 80s remakes with all the horrid production values that you'd expect from the decade that taste forgot. What a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a comp!!, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is superb. It starts off in an R&B style, moving through blues to soul and finally a few funk-tinged numbers. The one thing that links this collection is the stunning quality of the music. Probably the best comp I've ever bought in any genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little tuner!!, 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful piece of kit. The bright display is easy to read and makes tuning a piece of cake. I really like the 360 degree swivel so you can have the display exactly where you want it. A real bargain at less than 14 quid!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent R&B collection, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't be misled by the title - the word 'roots' is the key as this is not a Northern Soul collection in the normal sense. This is a superb compilation of up-tempo New Orleans-style R&B, largely dating from 1961. Dance on!

What a great little laptop. Fast start-up, clear screen, nice keypad and the best mousepad I've ever used. OK, I'm no real tech-geek so this machine may have shortcomings but for a bargain price laptop I'm utterly delighted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great songs, shame about the sound, 26 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll get the negative out of the way first. The sound on this set is pretty terrible - it's muddy, fluctuates in volume and is reminiscent of listening to scratched 45s on a Dansette with a worn stylus and busted speaker cone. However...

The music is spot-on, featuring stuff you won't find on run-of-the-mill Northern Soul comps. It may well be that the rarity of some of the selections means that they are straight vinyl transfers and hence the bootleg sound quality, but I'm sure something more could've been done to clean it up.

So, 5 for the really excellent up-tempo music but only 1 for the sound quality - hence 3 overall.
