(OSCD054) SOUL ON THE REAL SIDE #4
OUTTA SIGHT, in association with Real Side Records, presents Soul On The Real Side #4… 20 more ”real soul” gems from the Modern side of Northern Soul.
Following hot-on-the-heels of the Top 10 ‘Volume Three’, Real Side #4 features another tranche of established modern soul classics, new-to-CD rarities and contemporary recordings. This all-new selection includes Real Side artist Walter Thomas with his original, self-penned, recording “Hold On To The Blues” plus the latest release from UK soulster Lack Of Afro and the infectious “Recipe For Love”. Memories of Blackpool Mecca’s Highland Room come flooding back with the long forgotten jazzy/funk workout “Big Blow” by Manu Dibango plus the super rare “You’re Gone” by Celeste Hardie, the Blaxploitation soundtrack “Five On The Black Hand Side” by Keisa Brown and the enduring Philly soul social commentary “Let’s Clean Up The Ghetto”.
Look out too for Bobby Womack’s much overlooked “Never Let Nothing Get The Best Of You” and the Manhattans LP cut “I Don’t Want To Pay The Price Of Losing You”. Modern Soul collectors will be pleased to find new-to-CD tracks by actor/musician Ron Shy, Brand New Funk (a reincarnation of Wood Brass & Steel), Billy Keene and Clifton Dyson’s masterpiece “(You Got Me) Hypnotized” by Creative Funk’s Ci Ci.
