Release from Kent A varied collection of classy, mainly 70s, dance tracks that have consistently filled the floors of Modern soul rooms. Sleeve/release notes by Ady  

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.

The 1st track Debra Johnson is on a 45, Noriega label, Can you tell me if this was the first release of this track or Kent label as it appeared on a Kent anniversary 45 ? Thanks

Best Stevie
