4.0 out of 5 stars Club friendly choices, 4 Mar 2006

This review is from: Mod Fave Raves: Vol. 2 (Audio CD)
It is a great testament to the skill of the musicians, singers, writers, arrangers and producers of forty years ago that these Detroit production line models of disposable pop should now be awarded classic status and be so much in demand. This and its companion volume one, lovingly compiled for the English market, is subtitled 20 Collectable Modernist Soul Classics and are the floor filling sounds that echoed and spinned inside the Mod clubs in the mid sixties, made by acts such as the Miracles, Martha and the Vandellas, the Contours, Eddie Holland, Marvin Gaye, the Marvelettes, the Temptations, Chris Clark and many more.

Northern Soul was something different, although there are overlaps. These are all highly contagious dance tracks, with clattery trebly beats, pumping bass rhythms and excited, passionate vocals, and some of the rarer items, such as Barbara McNair's You're Gonna Love My Baby, would have cost a small ransom to acquire. Incidentally, the version of Gladys Knight's Just Walk In My Shoes is the 2.46 mix found on the British mono version of the LP Everybody Needs Love in 1968, some twenty seconds longer than elsewhere. This compilation would make a good companion set for The Trojan Mod Reggae Box Set and any good original mod group anthology that contains the Who, the Small Faces, the Birds, the Kinks, Creation and others of their ilk.

All 20 tracks are in club speaker friendly mono.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible vocal soul music, 1 Jun 2001
Rush out now and buy this cd, purely on the grounds of one incredible track, the mercurial tones and swings of the fantastic Ella Woods, her magnificent "i need your love" is an incredible journey through some of rare souls finest nerve jangling arrangements, good god this song should be lauded in all musical circles as a lesson, in how to deliver a feeling, just brilliant.

Buy it just for the two Moments tracks and then wonder at the pure quality that runs right through this cd.
