5.0 out of 5 stars conceived and compilrd with love, 2 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Backbeats: They Call It Crossover-More Mid-Tempo Soul Gems (Audio CD)
I was eagerly awaiting this CD. As the liner notes say this was conceived and compiled with love by soul stalwart Sean Hampsey. This CD is part of the Backbeat series, a label releasing the very best of black music, at mid-price, between £3.60-£5.00 covering many genres.This is their third ,series, this CD 26 tracks the follow up to the equally excellent compilation I Get My Groove featuring classy crossover soul a more gentle mid-tempo soul beat an accompaniment to the more frantic rhythms of northern soul. They Call It Crossover spans a decade from 1969 and. opens with supergoup The O'jays with one of their lesser known records, Just Another Guy produced by George Kerr a well known name who also co-penned the Linda Jones cut here.Other big hitters include Jackie Wilson and Bobby Womack. Tracks featured are mastered from the original 45, or the original album. I'm The One Who Loves You from the pen of Mr Curtis Mayfield is one of my faves classy chicago soul by 5 Stairsteps and Cubie. Tyrone Davis and Gene Chandler also represent the Windy City with You Keep me Holding On, and Without You Here. Legendary writer producer Van Mccoy is behind the Kenny Young track A'int It Funny. Popular tracks on the soul scene include Eddie Billups Shake off That Dream which featured back in the day and still popular at crossover events, as is Mary Holmes I Need Your Lovin, and the gorgeous Channel 3 Sweetest Thing.100% Proof Aged in Soul originally a detroit group which featured Steve Mancha they were part of the Holland Dozier Holland stable Hotwax. . The CD features many southern style deep soul vocalists. Ann Sexton Doris Duke Otis Clay Na Allen Johnny Adams and Chuck Armstrong all provide rich gritty vocals. Because of the price I would recomend this to soul fans who are just dipping their toe in the world of soul music, or people who can't access the original vinyl this is real soul from the heart for those of us who like a little dance now and then, but can't tear around the floor at the pulsating stompers, but also like to chill at home to quality soul music
