No crisis here – as the music is plenty darn great – and a wicked assortment of upbeat groovers from the late 60s! Most tracks are uptempo enough to be dubbed Northern Soul, but there's often a gritty undercurrent of R&B too – an extra dose that makes the tunes perfect for that mod sound of London in the 60s – the key crossover of jazz, blues, R&B, and soul that went onto influence countless of musicians in years to come! This heavy-duty collection is filled with 27 vintage soul tracks that play perfectly to that crowd – a brilliant blend of obscurities and classics, with titles that include "Just Ain't No Love" by Barbara Acklin, "There's Nothing Else To Say" by The Incredibles, "I Spy" by Jamo Thomas, "Do The Whoopee" by Sugar Pie De Santo, "Every Beat Of My Heart" by The Du-Ettes, "Mercy" by Gene & Al's Spacemen, "My Back Scratcher" by Frank Frost, "Mr Bang Bang Man" by Little Hank, "The Rubaiyats" by Omar Khayyam, "Make Up Your Mind" by Barrett Strong, and "Soul Poppin" by Johnny Johns & The King Casuals.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
