24 tracks "New Breed RnB.........Soulful 60s Blues for todays dancers"

Its good time dance music, upbeat on the whole and makes for a great party cd! Aimed at

the 2001 RnB scene which dips its toes into the NS, Mod and Blues scenes, this cd is

sprinkled with flavours from all of genre.........and should appeal to fans of all of em

as well.

Larry Davis Stafford fave "Ive been hurt so many times" is actually from

69....didnt realise it was that "late", and the Tommy in Larry & Tommy is actually

Tommy Bush........didnt know that either. Not mentioned in the sleeve note but it suddenly

clicked for me on listening through, was the fact that Marvin & Johnnys "Baby youre the

one" shares the same backing track as Ruby Rowes "We need each other" on

Resist........and Ive had both 45s in the past! Really liked Jackie Shanes slick

"Stand up straight and tall", and was pleasantly surprised how smooth King Solomons

vocal delivery was for once, on the jazzy finger snapping "New figure".

If you appreciate a groovy instrumental then Booker T.Averharts "Take your shoes off"

and Frank Armstrongs "Stuffed peppers" hit the spot. One track that stands out for me

because of its great swinging Chicago style male group harmonies, is Terry & The Tyrants

"Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea, yea", anyone know anything about them?

One of the current popular spins on this "new scene" is the Newports "Dixie

woman"...........yep, its not offensive and as mentioned in the sleeve note (entertaining

and informative as usual with Kent) these kinda sounds have been popular on the popcorn

scene for many a year....NS influenced but not necessarily the "traditional NS dance

beat"....more bluesy or "early", if you know what I mean? To me, these style of tracks

have loitered in my collection over the years cuz they are good records, but not necessarily

NS ones....almost there but rejected for a non-soulful delivery or elongated guitar

break......but kept as they have a certain quality, if you know what I mean again?!

Eventually I would turn the discs around as I couldnt afford to keep/hoard

everything........money/space wise, so its always a pleasure to get a cd dedicated to this

musical genre!

On the whole, most tracks are hard edged gritty and bluesy......and danceable. Id

recommend it to anyone into 60s soul/rnb for sure, and theres gonna be a series of

these kinda releases to look forward.

David
