Another strength of this collection is you are going to struggle to locate vast chunks of the contents anywhere else. It should also serve to tempt you to explore certain artists that particularly grab your attention still further. My guess is that this CD plus the following Volume 2 & 3 offer-up new gems every time you slide this belting disc into your CD tray and press play. I bought all three volumes together and have had absolutely countless new ways of exposing the individual gems (try making a compilation tape or CD featuring just the female artists featured here, for example). Enjoy!
if you have any love of soul, you cannot go wrong buying this. My bet is you'll end up recording it or selections from it for everyone you know from the day you buy it til the day you die - and your friends will always thank you for it. I bought this volume and vols 2 and 3 at the same time. I feel like the music in my world has quadrupled. And so has my heart....boom boom boom, eaeaaaaarghhhhhhh!
Over four volumes, the late and in his own way great Dave Godin assembled together some of the most emotionally unforgettable tracks from the classic soul years, often by singers new to many people, with copious, characteristically effusive booklet notes, in superbly packaged discs with about 75 minutes of stunning music on each one. This was a labour of love and a service to humanity. I'm not exaggerating!
Highlights for me on this first one are Jimmy Holiday's glorious The Turning Point, on which his low baritone drains the lovelorn emotion from a great self-penned song like few songs I've ever heard; the opener I'm Never Gonna Live It Down by the excellent Knight Brothers (who were new to me); Irma Thomas's great performance of Anyone Who Knows What Love Is; I'm Not the One by semi-legendary Larry Banks; Jean Stanback's I Still Love You; I'm Goin' For Myself by Eddie & Ernie (as fine a duo as Sam & Dave, if less steamy); and the closing track You Got Me by Jaibi, a singer totally new to me, but an astonishing track which Godin declares is his all-time favourite, and you can hear why.
The cumulative effect of this whole banquet of 'deep soul' - a phrase that will hardly need explaining once you've listened to the CD - is one of emotional exhaustion and musical integrity.
I really can't recommend these compilations too highly. Stirring, startling, and endlessly soulful.
