* A long overdue salute to one of the most admired singer-songwriters in the history of Southern soul, Florida's Paul Kelly is widely considered to be one of soul's most outstanding talents. His impressive catalogue has been somewhat under-represented in the digital era but Kent's comprehensive collection of all of his solo singles from 1965-1971 goes a long way towards rectifying that.
* Here are two dozen wonderful tracks, produced in Miami, Muscle Shoals, Memphis and Nashville that exemplify what Southern soul was about during the second half of the 1960s. With songs written by Paul as well as by notable writers such as Clarence Reid and Joe Tex, the standard of the performances never falls below fantastic.
* All tracks are presented in their original single versions, with many being reissued here for the first time ever.
* Anyone who has bought recent Kent CDs by Arthur Conley and George Jackson, "The FAME Studios Story" box or the earlier "Take Me To The River" set will find this an equally essential purchase.

The most surprising thing is the sheer variety of styles Kelly tackle; it sure isn't all tortured southern soul ballads (thank God!). There are fast paced stompers which could fit easily onto a Northern Soul compilation, the inevitable gospel soaked balladry (but without the annoying spoken monologues that taint so much of Joe Tex's work from the same period), a couple of smooth Chicago-soul styled songs, some surprisingly funk-tinged tracks from '70 onwards and one "Soul Flow" that does a rather excellent impersonation of an early Funkadelic guitar freak-out! I'd go as far to say there is only a single really sub-par track, "509" which is too 'country-pop' for my liking trying (and failing) to do a Charlie Pride-thing or something.Read more ›
