5.0 out of 5 stars Soulfull songwriting at its best, 6 Oct 2004

If you like good 60's/70's soul you'll love this album,Mitchell has been responsible for writing some outstanding songs over the years.The albums worth buying just for "Something for the Head" alone.A must!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonanza! Great Soul Music!, 3 May 2014

This review is from: Just the Beginning (Audio CD)
Hard to believe this was mostly made as DEMOS for possible cover versions by other artists in the late 60's/ early 70's, given that Mitchell had by then settled into being a well known songwriter. And if you think these were sketchy, cheap perfunctory demos think again. Herein is some of the sweetest singing soul music you will ever hear. Whether it's Northern soul, or Southern soul you are fond of this disc will satisfy on all fronts. Just listen to the lead of track and you will swoon! This is one of two discs put out by Grapevine record label. (The other is PICK OF THE HIT WEEK -also of unreleased stuff, from the late 60's). In both cases there are 20 songs each- talk about getting your money's worth. Later in the 70's Mitchell did get a record deal with a mainstream label (Atlantic) and did get to release two albums (TOP OF THE LINE & MAKE IT GOOD), but neither come close to what these two Grapevine CD's offer. Whenever I put both these discs on I can't shake off my puzzlement on how this music could have sat in the vault for 40 years! As someone who prefers vinyl I can only dream a lavish vinyl boxset that will give this music and Mitchell his due!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 10 Feb 2004

Mr. A. J. Bolton "Al_" (Consett, Co. Durham) - See all my reviews

What an incredible collection of songs to have on one disc!.
Philip Mitchell has of course a great pedigree, his tunes covered by all the soul giants, but to hear performances from the man himself is a treat. To think all tracks are previously unreleased, and of such quality is astounding. Not one filler.
Well done Garry Cape of Grapevine for facilitating this project.
A must have CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top, 20 Feb 2004
This review is from: Just the Beginning (Audio CD)
The songs are great enough, but what a marvellous voice! I'd never heard Phillip Mitchell before I bought the album. What a find! I agree with Big Al entirely. Another one of those I wish I'd discovered years ago ...
