To the uninitiated I won't go into the full explanation of Modern Soul, there are more than enough words in the sleevenotes. Suffice it to say that it is primarily danceable 70s soul music with a solid, as opposed to a funky beat. Having said that, the Modern Soul crowd has a very liberal view on what is danceable and having emerged at least partly as an antidote to the 100mph Northern Soul stompers, are willing to wander on to the dancefloor to the most laid-back of tunes. In fact the intimacy of many of their venues and the occasional lack of floor space often sees discerning soul fans grooving to their favourites on linoleum, sticky carpet or even table tops. The quality of the song and the singer's performance are given higher priority than the correctness of the rhythm, while clever dance moves are considered less important than say flowery bowling shirts or an encyclopaedic knowledge of Tyrone Davis' recording career.

MP3 | 192 Kbps | 94 MB

A cheesy cover, but a really wonderful little compilation – a set that's filled with obscure righteous soul tunes from the 70s, including some lesser-known cuts by bigger name acts of the time! The vibe here is really wonderful – definitely the kind of kicked-back soul you might listen to on a Sunday afternoon – not as uptight as tracks for the clubs the night before, and rolling out with a sound that's warm and mellow, but still with a bit of groove at the bottom. Most numbers are of mid 70s vintage.

Following hot-on-the-heels of the Top 10 Volume Three, Real Side #4 features another tranche of established modern soul classics, new-to-CD rarities and contemporary recordings. This all-new selection includes Real Side artist Walter Thomas with his original, self-penned, recording Hold On To The Blues plus the latest release from UK soulster Lack Of Afro and the infectious Recipe For Love. Memories of Blackpool Mecca’s Highland Room come flooding back with the long forgotten jazzy/funk workout Big Blow by Manu Dibango plus the super rare You’re Gone by Celeste Hardie, the Blaxploitation soundtrack Five On The Black Hand Side by Keisa Brown and the enduring Philly soul social commentary Let’s Clean Up The Ghetto.

Otis Redding - Tutto Otis: The King Of Soul (2006)

One of the most influential soul singers of the 1960s, Otis Redding exemplified to many listeners the power of Southern "deep soul" hoarse, gritty vocals, brassy arrangements, and an emotional way with both party tunes and aching ballads. He was also the most consistent exponent of the Stax sound, cutting his records at the Memphis label/studios that did much to update R&B into modern soul. His death at the age of 26 was tragic not just because he seemed on the verge of breaking through to a wide pop audience (which he would indeed do with his posthumous number one single "[Sittin' On] The Dock of the Bay"). It was also unfortunate because, as "Dock of the Bay" demonstrated, he was also at a point of artistic breakthrough in terms of the expression and sophistication of his songwriting and singing.

Soul, Funk | mp3 CBR 320 kbps | 39:57 min | 91,6 MB
Label: Daptone | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 12.05.2011

2011 collection of rarities and non-album tracks from the Queen Of Modern Soul. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have developed an international reputation as the #1 group on today's Soul scene. Soul Time is an exploration of the full range of their dynamic sound through 12 songs handpicked by the Daptone Records gang, each one a precious exclusive. The needle drops on 'Genuine Pts. 1 & 2', a supercharged Funk arrangement that evokes the late Godfather not only with the spirited syncopation of the Dap-Kings rhythms, but also with the raw power of Jones' voice. It is performances such as these that have earned her the moniker the Female James Brown.

Modern soul both old and new – that is, a range of current tracks, plus a few more classics – all wrapped together with a beautifully warm vibe overall! The package follows strongly in the spirit of the other Soul Togetherness collections – and although there's a date attached to the title, the music itself is really timeless – the sort of tracks you'll be digging again and again for years to come! Even on the new tracks, there's plenty of 70s elements firmly in place – great instrumentation, deeply soulful vocals, and production that's tight, but never too commercial.
