5.0 out of 5 stars This is what real soul music is all about., 5 Jun 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Modern Soul Connoisseurs (Audio CD)
First the downside about this collection. If this compilation CD is at the top of your shopping list, the chances are that you already have some of the songs on the original vinyl and/or other compilation CDs. Indeed the Collins & Collins and Gloria Scott tracks appear on at least three other collections together, usually following each other as on this CD.
The beauty of this set for me is the sheer diversity of the music, mostly made from the early seventies up to 1980. The songs range from the uptempo dance groove of Beloyd "Get into your life", the mid tempo magic of Bobby Hutton's "Wanting you, needing you" and the Topics "Booking up Baby" to the slower "Pity a fool" by Barbara Brown.
Richard Searling of Jazz FM fame compiled this CD and as with his previous "modern soul" compilations, it has brought previously unheard music to these ears. Every track is a winner, but for me the final track, Dee Dee Warwick's soulful slowie "I haven't got anything better to do" is the pick.
If you want to know what real soul music sounds like then this CD is a good start. Roll on Volume 2!!
