Ultra-hip soul from the 70s – a brilliant collection of underground tunes that represents some of the best of the decade's indie scene! The title says "modern", but the groove here is also pretty darn deep – as many of the tracks on the set have nice touches of southern soul, despite the smoother 70s production overall. Vocals are extremely heartfelt, and most tracks are in a mellow or midtempo pace – making for a really wonderful batch of tunes that moves away from the more uptempo and clubby sounds you might hear on other modern soul compilations. The set's a very unique take on the music, with a total of 22 tracks in all – most of them probably pretty new to your ears! Titles include "Ain't No Telling" by The Houston Outlaws, "Chase Those Clouds Away" by Sam Nesbit, "Fair Warning" by Ted Taylor, "I'm Me Just Me" by Gil Billingsley, "Come Through Me" by Garland Green, "I'm A Lonely Man" by Al Christian, "Bringin Me Back Home" by Lou Pride, "I Call It Love" by The Pretenders, "Second Hand Love" by Lynn Varnado, "Love Me Baby" by Tender Loving Care, and "What Can I Do, I'm In Love With You" by Jean Shy.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole ... CD
