"Jealous" is a true classic among sweet soul music aficionados. The release counts with the cleanest recording available. "My Love Needs Company" is also a very good ballad. Asking price for this Japanese release varies so make sure you shop around if you plan to buy.

A few really nice jams spread out through this 3 CD compilation. Highlights include "There He Is" by Dream Team, "The Best Man Cried" by Sebastian And The House Rockers, "Take What You Want But Leave A Little" by Reginald "C", "Please Tell Me" by Laurie Tate and "My Sweet Baby" by Sir Guy. Sound quality varies.

For the most part I steer clear of northern soul compilation but Ace Records tends to sneak in a few ballads that force me to rethink passing up on their releases. This compilation counts with "Never Find A Love Like Mine" by The Brownettes, "What Can I Do" by Donnie Elbert, "Once I Had A Love" by The Fabulous Denos and "It Hurts Me" by William Patton.

A massive amount of music at a very low price but at the end nothing really exciting. A couple of nice tracks by The Del Rios and The Tonettes. If you like instruments from Stax this might be a great bargain for you. For others I recommend you pass up.

Good rare tracks by Pat Lundy, Stevee Wellons, Misty Douglas and The Fascinations. Sound quality varies with a more than a few tracks lacking good or even decent quality, like when sourced from a compressed file. Many repeats.
