Yet another great soul compilation from 'Kent/Ace' records (61.47mins). From the opening seconds of the fantastic opening track by the Whispers you know you're in for something special. What a fantastic roster of artists 'Dore' had on its books. The mix of tracks is great from beautiful soulful harmonies to slices of Northern Soul magic 'Gone with the wind is my love' by Rita and the Tiaras is a truly great track (urgent, frantic with a desperate lyric - everything a northern soul track should be in my opinion) this is the extended version 3.08 mins in stereo. The sound quality is very good indeed with most tracks in Mono and 4 in stereo. The cd comes with a 20 page booklet that has track by track info, label scans and pics. Overall, a great compilation of soul tracks from 1964 to 1975 with two unissued tracks to boot. Recommended. 9/10.

I thought that this would be a good collection and I wasn't wrong.
The collection is mainly aimed at the "Northern Soul" crowd but also contains ballads and mid-tempo material that will appeal to Soul fans in general.
Most of the artists might not be too well known but this is no reflection on the material, which is surprisingly well produced. The two early tracks by THE WHISPERS are utter gems and there is the full length version of "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by RITA & THE TIARAS to savour and my favourite "On a Day When It's Raining" by THE SUPERBS is simply ..... superb!!.
A collection well worth investigating.

This CD complements and updates Kent's low key double CD from about a decade ago of the Dore label, adding some new discoveries and updating the sound on some other tracks. We expect the perfect Northern Soul but there are a couple of wonderful Modern Soul / Crossover songs here along with Funk, Southern Soul and Deep Soul. It's an essential one from Kent, buy now and enjoy forever.

Well produced and It's great to have a cd quality copy of Rita and the Tiara's "Gone with the wind". The cd arrived as usual in excellent condition and in good time.
