Various 'Extra Added Soul - Cross Over, Modern and Funky Soul' 2xLP
There is a lot of confusion with regards to the modern soul scene. An off-shoot of northern soul, it initially mixed new release independent soul, with post late-60s soul that didn’t fit with the northern scene. They championed a lot of great records, but this was the mid-80s and it now seems odd to describe nearly 50 year old records as modern soul – but somehow the name has stuck. Extra Added Soul luxuriates in this contradiction, as it allows us to mix up the boogie like Love Explosion by Donnell Pittman, with two-step Chicago classics by Elvin Bishop or El Anthony, or the danceable sweet soul of Dyson’s Faces with Gil Scott-Heron alike Patience by Rokk. Amongst the twenty tracks there is also room for a touch of Prince on 94 East’s exceptional If You See Me and the cosmic soul of Karriem’s super rarity I Love You. Compiled by DJ and award winning compiler Dean Rudland, with stunning artwork from his long-time collaborators The Unknown.
