On the value score the series is a great bargain of which Vol 2 is probably the most esoteric with a very full and varied selection, encompassing well known names on less well known tracks (Little Anthony & Imperials, O'Jays, and Carl Douglas (before Kung Fu hit him!)) to the lost gems notably Homer Banks, with the benefit of many unheard of artistes getting a re-run of their 3-4 minutes of vinyl fame along the way. The great pleasure of these well compiled collections is that even when derivative e.g. Tina Britt ripping off "Heatwave" on "The real thing", they drive along with a gusto and pleasure that makes you realise what a concentrated art form the 45rpm soul singles of the '60s were. Great car and background music and also transferred well to a CD format.
The biggest disappointment are the sleeve notes which for a collection where prior knowledge of most listeners is close to zero on many tracks, are crying out for some placing of the records or artistes in historical context. Sadly in this Volume, the notes are just an excuse for the complilers to mention their mates. One only wishes that the Ace Records compilation team had been let loose on ths series, but at such a bargain price don't let that put you off buying some great soul music.

Like the CD cover, it's professional but not overly exciting nor was all that much creative effort expended in putting these tracks together. It's good, just not great.
