Fantastic Compilation of Uptempo 60s Soul!,
This review is from: At the Club (Audio CD)
This CD is fantastic, it's aimed at Mod fans of Soul in particular, but this is really for any fan of good Soul Music. It focuses on upbeat soul songs popular in UK mod clubs in the 60s (as opposed to most Northern Soul compilations on the same Ace/Kent label, which have a slightly different emphasis even though most of it's from the 60s as well), has good liner notes with an intro by an ex Small Faces member as well as a small piece of fiction which tries to capture the mindset of a young English mod. The songs are all from the Atlantic label (part of a great series of Atlantic licensed comps) and feature a enough well known artists to keep it accesible, along with lesser known ones, but they don't use the most obvious song e.g. Wilson Picket appears with "Three Time Loser" not Land of 1000 dances, and the version of "Green Onions" included is a great jazzy cut by King Curtis. Other songs include the stormer "Looking for a Fox." - Clarence Carter, "Just One Look" - Doris Troy, & "The Memphis Train" - Rufus Thomas. Just buy it!
