CATCH UP GROOVE/4: VARIOUS ARTISTS: MAINSTREAM MODERN SOUL 1969 – 1976 (KENT)
No defining style here, rather a mixture of titles crossing the gamut from jazz-tinged melodies, uptempo dancers and smouldering ballads from several New York labels owned by Bob Shad. For jazz, check out Ellerine Harding’s “To Whom It May Concern (All I Need)” for instance, while The Dramatics with “No Rebate On Love” switch to the upbeat. The Jackey Beavers Show, Sarah Vaughan and Linda Perry head up a roster of impressive acts featured here, and once again, the guys at Kent dug deep for these titles ensuring they weren’t lost for always. Some aren’t for me but, hey, it’s music history in the making at the end of the day. Enjoy!
