'Soul And Rock That Does Not Stop!'



'The UK Sue Label Story' on Ace is an absolutely essential new compilation that all you mods should own and enjoy. Apart from such well-known cuts as 'A Little Piece Of Leather' and 'Mockingbird' there are a lot of killers - like Wilbert Harrison's 'Let's Stick Together', Jimmy McGriff's 'All About My Girl', and my current favourite, 'Music City' by The Pleasures. Top quality R&B, Jazz and Soul from one of the hippest labels. Do yourself a favour... emoticon

There are a variety of tempos - mostly 'up' or 'mid' - Bobby Parker's 'Watch Your Step' is there - and that's... emoticon emoticon emoticon !@#$ classic! (IMO)
If you like soul and R&B, you can't go wrong.

Re: 'Soul And Rock That Does Not Stop!'


Just listened to it all the way through Bop. Some of it's a bit slow, but like most of it emoticon

My favourites are:

I can't believe what you say - Ike a Tina Turner.
A little piece of leather - Donnie Elbert.
Oh! Mom (teach me how to uncle willie) - The Daylighters.
Daddy rollin' stone - Derek Martin.
That's how heartaches are made - Baby Washington.
I wanna be (your everything) - The Manhattans.

But the absolute stand out track for me is; Keep An Eye On Love - Ernestine Anderson.

Not only have I never heard it before, (which is a great feeling!), but the song has all the qualities I like in a soul record, all rolled into one!

It's got that gutsy, R&B/Tamla crossover feeling, with a brilliant bluesy/gospel female soul voice, and all wrapped into a medium/fast tempo, girl group-type sound.

In a word - brilliant!

Yeah, I like the Ernestine Anderson track, but I'm amazed you're not raving over Bobby Parker or The Pleasures! Personal taste sure is a funny ol' thing.
Glad you're getting something out of it anyway.
