5.0 out of 5 stars I solemly declare this Stateside collection is superb!, 7 April 2014
This review is from: Testify (Audio CD)
I've only just stumbled on this and I'm so glad I did. This is an absolutely stonking selection of alleged releases on the EMI's Stateside label. I say 'alleged' as I don't see a lot of them on the list of original Stateside releases in the 60s. Stateside was an EMI invention to license the UK release of many US tracks without secured UK outlets. Hence, there isn't a distinct local origin of the material but Motown, Philly, Chess styled arrangements glimmer throughout the set. This collection is just a wonderful selection of largely little known tracks and artists with consistently high quality with organ and horns a common feature of funky soul, r'n'b songs. Just buy and enjoy.
