Product Description

26 mid-to-late 60s classic soul tracks, including several R&B hits and a few which made the Pop Hot 100 too. Most were released in the UK, including groovy little labels such as Action, Spark, Soul City, Direction, B&C and Pama. The Show Stoppers What Can A Man Do is the terrific flip to the frequently re-released Ain t Nothing But A House Party Gene Latter was born in Wales and his great 60s soul pastiche Sign On The Dotted Line was recorded in London. Cliff Nobles The Horse is an instrumental with that indefinable something which made it stand out from the rest; there are probably legions of fans who never knew the song's name. Bill Moss funky Sock It To Em Soul Brother is a fine example of early rap and something of a period piece with its eulogising of OJ Simpson s football rather than courtroom skills. There's girly group soul from the Ikettes and Inspirations, funky stuff from Clarence Carter, Thelma Jones and Lowell Fulsom and soulful balladry from Carl Henderson, the Ad Libs and Bob & Earl. The soul group roots of Northern Soul are demonstrated by the Platters, Esquires, Showmen and Volumes while Ruby Andrews and J.J. Barnes feature the subtler productions that were the foundation stones of the 70s modern soul scene.

This is a very compilation from 'Kent/Ace' records, the third in the series and after a slight dip in form on volume two its nearly back up to the heights of the excellent first compilation. The tracks are in glorious mono, and as usual the sound quality is excellent on the whole with only 'Gotta give her love' by the Volumes sounding a little tired - this is still one of the best tracks on here though. There is a mix of styles here with some fantastic tracks by Brenton Wood, The Platters, The Ad Libs, Carl Henderson and the Showmen from the years 1964 - 69. It comes with a great 24 page colour booklet with very good liner notes and track info by Ady Croasdell and Tony Rounce. Overall, a very good and enjoying MONO listen (as it should be, well done Ace). 8.5/10.

This is the singles release of these early soul seminal classics. I grew up in the Mod/soul scene hearing these songs in this way. This is one of the best series of reissue soul ever and although the emphasis isn't said to be on dance soul, much more than half of the tracks are Northern Soul classics from the pure soul part of the sound. Almost all these tracks don't have stereo mixes so this is as they were meant to be heard. Buy with confidence.

KENT records are a frustrating label, forever mixing the sublime and the mediocre in a seemingly random manner. After an exceptionally patchy 2013 (even by KENT standards) they have started 2014 in an outstanding fashion with this brilliant various artists, multi-label compilation. I've always maintained that KENT various artist compilations drawn from multiple labels/artists always beat their single label/artist compilations hands down and here is more proof of that with a sublime selection of mid- to late- 60's soul with only about 2-3 duds out of the generous 26 tracks. Another bonus is that this release doesn't contain any 'previously unreleased' songs which always makes me apprehensive since more often than not they were this way because they weren't up to snuff, a lesson KENT still don't seem to have grasped.

This compilation even improves on KENT's proven track record regarding multi-label/artist Northern Soul compilations (such as the exceptional 'Once Upon A Time In Wigan', 'Northern Monsters' & 4-volumes of Northern Soul's Classiest Rarities [surely due for another of these this year?]) in that it keeps you on your toes by mixing up the multitude of soul styles from the 60's including deep soul, northern soul, Motown-ish, funky soul, uptown soul and even perhaps a touch of psych-soul on J.J.Barnes brilliant, dramatic 'Baby Please Come Back Home'.

There are a few tracks replicated from earlier KENT releases including 'Funky Fever', 'Freedom Train' and 'The House That Jack Built' but this is forgivable due to the prodigious tracklisting length and that these are superior songs that contribute to the eclectic mix of soul stylings and so don't come across (too much) as cynical recycling.
