A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of the great Bert Berns – maybe one of the most rough-edged producers on
the New York scene at the time – as you can
probably guess from his image on
the cover! The set's pretty strong on
Berns' soul output, but also includes some of his key rock productions too – and as always with his music, there's a nice link between both styles – with rough edges on
the soul tracks, and soulful currents on
the rock numbers! Titles include "Tell Him" by The Exciters, "Piece Of My Heart" by Erma Franklin, "A Little Bit Of Soap" by The Jarmels, "I Want Candy" by The Strangeloves, "Are You Lonely For Me Baby" by Freddie Scott, "Hang On
Sloop" by The McCoys, "Chick A Boom" by Van Morrison, "Mr Success" by Bobby Harris, "Am I Grooving You" by Freddie Scott, "Heart Be Still" by Lorraine Ellison, "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" by Solomon Burke, "You May Be Holding My Baby" by The Pussycats, "Show Me Your Monkey" by Kenny Hamber, and "Baby Please Don't Go" by Them.
