Dave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures: Taken From Our Vaults, Vol. 2
Genres: World Music, Pop, R&B, Classic Rock
A fantastic collection of soul you've never heard
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Leave it to the English to find the soul gems we in America missed. There are a few artists here you will know--Ben E. King, Arthur Conley, Eddie Holman--but their songs here were not hits, although they were equally good as the songs that were. If you like soul, spend a few more bucks on this import (volume 1 is just as good). You'll get 25 great songs, inspiring liner notes, state of the art sound. And the warm feeling you get from listening to vocalists who are more concerned with showing their emotions than showing off their vocal technique."
Ignore the previous review
(4 out of 5 stars)
"the previous reviewer would be well advised to stick to otis/sam & dave best of compilations.but for those with a wider ranging appreciation for deep southern soul, this is a tasty collection. a step down from volume 1, and perhaps not quite as good as volume 3, this set is nevertheless brilliant. there are plenty of great non-hit singles from the stax/volt catalogue. if you have the first stax singles box, most of these will be superfluous, but it's great to hear them in a new context. particularly strong are the soul children and ruby johnson tracks. but then, the wendy rene and carla thomas tracks aren't too shabby either.another great track is the classic toussaint mccall slow burner, "nothing takes the place of you." if you don't have this elsewhere, it's inclusion alone justifies the purchase of this cd."losin' boy" by eddie giles is another winner. of course, everyone will have their favorites, and with 25 tracks, there is a veritable treasure trove to pick from. go ahead and buy all three volumes today."
Well worth the wait!mercy!
