A very well-titled set – given that the Colemine Records label
has given us some mighty soulful slabs of wax in recent years! Although a small label
, in the hinterland of Ohio, Colemine is fast rising to be one of the coolest funk label
s in the world – right up there on a par with older classics like Desco and Soul Fire, and almost able to challenge the supremacy of the Daptone sound! Yet Colemine is also a bit more wide-ranging than some of those other label
s, too – as you'll hear in the rich array of sounds within – all pulled from previous funky 45s on the label
, many of which are out of print – and presented here in a fantastic full length set. Titles include "Don't Get Caught" by The Droptones, "Yo Todo T Yo" by The Rugged Nuggets, "Street Sweeper" by The Grease Traps, "Like Yesterday" by The Monophonics, "Pacified" by Soul Scratch, "Remember When" by Leroi Conroy, "Jesse's Jing" by In Motion Collective, "Next To You" by Gene Washington & The Ironsides, and "Suction" by On The Spot Trio.
