A really classic collection from the folks at Kent Records – just the sort of gem that first made us start to notice their genius back in the day! The package is the kind of soul set that never would have come out in America – as it's got that special blend of Northern and Mod soul numbers that the UK scene really helped bring to the forefront – currents of US soul from the 60s that may not have hit the charts over here, but which found long life, thanks to overseas DJs and collectors! The CD brings together two dozen gems from the Wand and Scepter labels – singles that often have a sock-soul groove, set to sweet uptown production – all with more than enough punch to keep you living the nightlife all the way to the dawn. Titles include "Gonna Give Her All The Love I Got" by Benny Gordon, "Black Eyed Girl" by Billy Thompson, "My Sweet Baby" by The Esquires, "Good Things Come To Those Who Wait" by Chuck Jackson, "I Don't Want To Lose You" by Mel Wynn, "I Want You" by Judy Clay, "Happiness Will Cost You One Thin Dime" by Betty Lavette, "Yesterday's Kisses" by Big Maybelle, "Love Ain't What It Used To Be" by The Diplomats, "I Refuse To Give Up" by Clarence Reid, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Livin The Nightlife" by The Charts, "Do You Love Me Baby" by The Masqueraders, "The Pretty Part Of You" by Tommy Hunt, "Please Stay" by The Ivories, "Send My Baby Back" by Freddie Hughes, "Carlena" by the Just Brothers, "Dearly Beloved" by Jack Montgomery, "Groovy Guy" by the Shirelles
