This cd, although having some good dancey tunes, both tamla and northern, it has one magic ingredient missing.Advertised as songs from the kfc adverts is not strictly true. Moonlight, music and you, is missing, all of the other tracks are easily found on hundreds of other compilation discs, many are now old hat and oh so boring. This double offer really could do with moonlight to boost it up a little. Only three tracks have actually been used on the adverts.Dissapointing end to such a hopeful compilation.
We've all seen them, KFC ads with young people enjoying chicken, while the soulful music of Frank Wilson plays. But when you look at the tracklisting, there's only 3 of the KFC ads on here, so maybe the endorsement from KFC is a bit much? Actually, if you like Northern Soul, and any soul for that matter, you're not going to be disapointed, actually, I suggest ignoring the endorsement, if you like Soul music, you're going to enjoy this KFC or no KFC. With artists like Frank Wilson, Smokie Robinson and James Brown, you realy can't go wrong. Some of my favourites include James Brown's Poppa's got a new pigbag; The Temptations' dancy Get Ready and the soul sisters The Velvelettes' Needle In A Haystack. This isn't a bad CD, but the mixing isn't great, the music is very similar, but if you love Soul, you probably have all this. Good for newcomers to soul music. Could have been better.
