5.0 out of 5 stars The soul is sooo thick, 26 Aug 2003
By 
STIJN DELATHOUWER (Lier, Antwerp Belgium) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Miami Sound - Rare Funk And Soul From Miami (Audio CD)
Gorgeous collection of soul and funk records you'd have a hard time tracking down otherwise. Perfect for some good loving, cruising downtown in the summertime or drinking mojitos on a cocktailbar near the beach. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best obscure funk-soul collection ever!, 11 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miami Sound - Rare Funk And Soul From Miami (Audio CD)
If you are the kind of guy who prefers the obscure music (that is, the non-commercial kind of music...) then this is your collection! 17 brilliant tracks from the label (ie Soul Jazz Records) that has offered to all the serious music listeners music treasures all those years.. I've listened to that record so many times and i can't find any filler, just killer funk-soul tunes to dance and have fun with all day and all of the night!
So, my marks are:
COVER: 10/10! (what an obscure collection could be like..)
MUSIC: 10/10! (Just listen to the 11 track and you'll get the spirit of that music!)
BOOKLET: 9/10! (almost perfect)

Don't hesitate and just buy that product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky sounds from the Sunshine State, 5 Aug 2003
When you think of uptempo soul you are immediately drawn to the big US cities- Detroit's Motown, the Philly sound, Chicago and Okeh, and New York. However; this excellent compilation draws on some of Florida's funkiest moments. Soul Jazz have pulled together a sunny feisty selection up to 1974. Stand out moments have to be the driving "I get lifted" and Gwen Macrae's 90% of me, a track almost as sweet and boogieable as " I love you wholeheartedly" by Jackie Dee.
The greatest misconception is that this kind of music is niche music for soul afficinado's but the quality of this compilation deserves to make it approachable for a wider audience. Mojo magazine gave it five stars, and it would be churlish not to follow suit

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Rate Compilation, 28 July 2011
By

This review is from: Miami Sound - Rare Funk And Soul From Miami (Audio CD)
Compilations are usually a mixed bag, 3-4 great cuts and the rest can be pretty average. Not so with this fantastic compilation. Every song is fantastic, but my favourites are All The People - "Cramp Your Style", James Knight "Fantasy World" and Little Beavers "I Love The Way You Love" is really the crown jewel - soaring strings that to my ears were an influence on Sebastien Telliers awesome "Le Ritournelle".

If you're looking for an album that will get you moving this will certainly not disappoint.
