A motherlode of rare soul from the 70s – all of it as smooth and grooving as you'd expect from the "modern soul" tag in the title – mixed here with a few more contemporary cuts that really retain the flavor of the classics! The title's a bit oblique, but the music's totally great – a killer batch of 70s smooth soul, most of which is pretty darn rare, and which never really got its due back in the day! There's plenty of warmth here overall – great backings, with a high level of class – rhythms that never go too over the top – and well-balanced vocals that step and slide nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Waiting In Vain" by Chuck Jackson, "Keep On Walking By" by Midnight, "Love Takes Tears" by The Real Thing, "Like Water" by Billy Griffin, "Best Love" by Rose Royce, "One More Step To Take" by Delegation
, "Do You Like The Way I Love You" by The Ebonys, "I Don't Care What People Say" by Carl Douglas, "It's Just Your Love" by Aretha Franklin, "Walk In My Shoes" by Bruce Cloud, "Make Me Yours" by ZZ Hill, "Bring Back The Love Of Yesterday" by The Dells, and "I'm Here" by Randy Brown.
