Stunning – an overloaded set of grooves by one of the greatest Philly soul talents ever! Vince Montana's probably had a hand in more records than you'd think – either playing vibes, which he did on countless Philly classics, or arranging and producing, which he did with a freewheeling soulful style, influencing club music for years with his unique talents! Vince has mostly preferred to work in the background – hiding out under the names of groups like Philly Sound Works, Montana, or Goody Goody, and laboring endlessly in the biggest factory of modern soul ever, the landmark Sigma Sound Studios in Philly. This set's one of the first to ever do him justice – a huge sampling of work recorded in the late 70s and 1980s, when Vince's talents were still riding very high, and in some ways, he was working as a one-man camp
aign to keep alive the MSFB style of the 70s – still working in a very classic mode, a blend of soul, jazz, disco, and funk – augmented with the sorts of quality touches that were rarely turning up in music at the time. CD features 22 titles on 2 CDs – including "It Looks Like Love (new club)", "Esto Parese Amor (love vibes)", "Heavy Vibes (club mix)", "It Looks Like Love", "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "What Happened To The Music", "Make Me Hot (dub)", "I Wanna Know", and "South Soul Party (club mix)". Great package, with a nice book on Vince, too!
