Now we know why "Moonlight, Music and You" (from the KFC ads) was missing off the original "60s Soul Mix" collection - because they were planning Volume 2!!
Of course the KFC connection is just a marketing ruse to help sell the thing, and it shouldn't really be needed. For this second album the compilers have dipped a little deeper into the Motown and Northern Soul barrell and, on CD1 at least, come up with some less familiar, but no less groovy, numbers, from lesser known acts but also from the likes of Diana Ross & The Supremes and The Marvelettes. CD2 has more of the well known tracks that many people will already have on earlier compilations, but overall there is sufficient variety and novelty here to make this a worthwhile investment.
The sequencing and "mixing" quality leave a little bit to be desired (there's no danger of albums like this doing wedding reception/Christmas party DJs out of business) but it is great for having on in the car or for the 40-somethings houseparty.

Having heard the new tunes on the KFC ads Moonlight, music and you I had to check out the rest of the ads and these can be found on here and even the original california Soul by Marvin Gayne & Tammi Terrel, not from the Ad though. But this album will definately make those summer parties cater for everyone or even to cheer those dull days up.

I gave 5 stars as I like a lot of 60's music, I like The Four Tops- I Can't Help Myself, Booker T- Green Onions, The Supremes- Nathan Jones, Marvin Gaye- How Sweet It Is. There are 50 Tracks 2 CD Set I would recommend if you like the 60's.
