This really is soul at its best, and should have been the 4th volume of Dave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures. Many of the tracks are wilfully obscure-despite years of ardent reseach I had never heard of Lee Jackson, Walter Rhodes or Rudy Mockabee. Others tracks feature better known artists on lesser known tracks - the wonderful, criminally underrated Soul Brothers 6, the sweet and sensual Judy Clay, the anguished and torured Sam Dees, the wild wicked Wilson Pickett, and, most poignant of them all, the sad and wasted James Carr. There are beautifulcovers of acknowledged classics - Jackie Moore on Percy Sledge, Judy Clay on Lee Dorsey - and soulful takes on lesser genres - JP Robinson's outraged tribute to the executed George Jackson brings passion and pain to Dylan's protest song,Solomon Burke brings to the joys of telephone sex to Jim Reeves' countrified innocence.
The sound quality throughout is excellent, Dave Godin's liner notes are, as always, about the impact of the song, rather than the song itself, and reassure listeners that they are not alone when moved by this tragic yet uplifting music.
Soul, as deep as you like, and then some.....
