The CD starts with an infectious tune by Debra Johnson, produced by the prolific Miles Grayson. That's followed by an excellent Millie Jackson tune (thankfully, she spares us one of her saucy raps), and a sparkling track by the underrated Houston Outlaws. Whew! That's a mighty fine 1-2-3 jolt, and we're just getting started! Other personal favorites includes the songs by Ted Taylor, Sam Nesbit, Jean Shy, Ronnie Walker, and Lynn Varnado. Another highlight is "Here I Am Again" by Denise LaSalle, that I would have sworn was written and produced by either Barry White or Gene Page --- it's got that trademark Love Unlimited sound --- but no, it was written by Denise herself and originally released on the Westbound label. The only tracks that I didn't really care for were two gospel numbers: "I'm a Believer" by Idris Muhammad (written and sung by his wife Sakinah) and "Come Out of the Sandbox" by Mary Love Comer (formerly, known as just Mary Love), a catchy tune, but one with too much of Jesus lyrical emphasis for my tastes.
The CD comes with a 16-page booklet with capsule summaries of each track, including songwriting credits and original label and release date, but no song times. There are also 2 pages devoted to "the theory" of this genre known as Modern Soul (which was news to me: I never knew that it was a separate category!). The liner notes explain that when Modern Soul "came out of the Northern scene in the mid-70s, it originally concentrated on soul releases from that decade, while the traditional crowd stuck with their 1960s recordings ... the beat on the Modern scene tended to be slower than that which punters had previously been dancing to in Northern Soul clubs in their younger days. Indeed it could be claimed that a conversion to Modern Soul was the logical step for ageing Northern fans."
A "conversion" to Modern Soul? What kind of madness are they talking about? But it gets stranger:
"The fanaticism of certain collectors, DJs, and journalists often led to the merits of one decade being championed at the expense of the other ... the debate sometimes sunk into an unseemly row when musical rivals tried to score points from one another ... this led to 70s sounds being banned from that venue for a while ..."
I love soul music from the 1960s and 1970s, but I had no idea that there was this "conflict" between fans of Northern Soul and Modern Soul. A bit silly, if you ask me. Good soul music is timeless, no matter which year it was recorded, and this compilation has plenty of very obscure but excellent examples of the power of soul music, no matter if you call "Modern" or something else. Play on!
