Just a short history first.Not having an e.mail address of my own I am using my friends. My name is John Gravett and I was born in1945. In1960 I fell in love with soul music and still feel the same way about it to this day.Love all Motown, Stax, Atlantic, Chi-Town, Curtom etc, etc.Favourite act of all time The Dells. No Arguments. I tell you this so that you know where I'm coming from. Having bought 10 previous Backbeat CDs this one appealed to me purely from the title.Having discovered the track listing ( go to Backbeats own website) and found that this contained quite a few tracks I had forgotten about I ordered it. It arrived perfectly the following day and I have been in heaven ever since. Modern Crossover Two Steppers call it whatever you want,IT'S SUPERB. Stand out tracks? To hard to say! How about Barrino brothers Trapped In A Love, Johnnie Taylor You're The Best In The World, Winfield Parker Will There Be Another Love For Me, Will Hatcher Who Am I Without You Baby. Plus many other fantastic tracks from amongst others Willie Hutch, Syl Johnson, Lou Courtney and Ike Lovely. Special mention also to the distaff side especially Maxine Brown Its Gonna BeAlright and Queen Aretha with a stunner called One Step Beyond. Special praise should be given to Sean Hampsey who put this all together and Backbeat who released it. Buy it now and Keep The Faith

Excellent selection of 60s and 70s Crossover Soul. Backbeats continue to deliver music of the highest quality at a most reasonable price. Too many standout tracks, but I particularly love Maxine Brown's "It's Gonna Be Alright" and Aretha Franklin's "One Step Ahead".

This is a great CD - Ujima - had to buy the single. Aretha Franklin (all day long). Another great selection form the Backbeat collection.

A fantastic mix of Crossover gems with liner notes by Sean Hampsey who knows a thing or two about rare soul music.
I love it.

Some great previously unheard tracks here. Good value for all old soul lovers. Not great but very good and worth the addition in any soul collection. Reccomended.
