A great collection of mellow soul tracks – mostly deep ballads from the 70s, put together by the folks at In The Basement, a British magazine dedicated to underground soul! The track list is very expansive – and includes a host of mellow tracks from American indie soul labels of the 70s, many of which are by lesser-known acts of the time. There's a heavy lean towards the Philly/
New Jersey ballad mode here – which is fine with us, as that part of the country came up with some of the best mellow soul of the 70s! Titles include "Coward's Way Out" by Leslie Valentine, "I Can't Take No Chances" by The Chosen Few, "Time Is Love" by JJ Barnes, "For Your Precious Love" by Linda Jones, "Hurry Sundown" by Candi Staton, "Let Me Keep On Walking" by Prophesy, "What You Don't Want Me To Be" by Lee Moses, "Give It Up" by Benny Johnson, "The Meeting Place" by Wanda Robinson, "For You Girl" by Universal
Mind, "Love Stealing" by Bobby Sheen, "Love Is God Almighty" by The Optimistics, and "Think Of The Children" by Satisfaction Unlimited. 20 tracks in all.
