Thoughts on Re-edits of Northerrn Soul tracks?

Posted

got the original version and was surprised to see this come out, adds in 'hand clapping' and more of a chugging beat? what do you think of these re-edits?  I think Joy Lovejoy was re-done by someone else last year

The whole point for me with NS  is the originality it reflects a time and a place in history and amplifies that . Re edits have no place on the scene in my humble opinion .

Interesting, pointless and horrible! A bit like remakes of classic films like Alfie, The Italian Job, Get Carter (and 1,000's of others) may introduce it to a new audience but the people doing it would be better off spending their time doing something original rather than trying to "improve" the past.

I guess if somebody actually made a really great tinkered version over the original, it might work, but I've yet to hear such an example.

Obviously tunes have different versions by different singers ( When I'm gone - had a nice version by bonnie pointer for example) and or even instrumentals get words added in (Like the  Bird walking vocal), but it's what it's been done just for the Northern Soul scene's benefit, it winds everybody up.

It's a no from me.

On the whole I agree, but I do like this version of Fantastic Johnny C, Perhaps it works better with 70s records

Pointless to me seem more fun to the mixer than the public and records from the 60s were meant to last only about 2 and a half minutes , no point in fleshing them out .

Less is more.

Tom Moulton has done some brilliant work with a lot of Philly stuff.

Anti-lock Braking System, which is handy if you don't notice the stop sign early enough.

Is it not a little bit like covers; most are worse, some are good but nearly all lack the originality of the original!

Lazy workmanship, piggy-backing on someone else`s hard work. Do something original, if you have the talent that is!

the new Temptations re-edit is not bad imo (label is FLIP-006), they've definitely remixed the vocals / harmonies and it's an interesting take on a classic
