Editorial Reviews

We at Now-Again unearthed so much information about the bands that recorded the definitive disco and modern soul contained in our recently launched Soul Cal anthology that we decided we had no choice but to release an album and a book at the same time. Well, following that line, the music contained on Loving On The Flip Side music is too damn good to be anonymously relaunched, decades after musical visionaries blended the best of heavy funk and sweet soul into a unified whole. And simply telling the stories of these vocalists and bands without allowing their lovelorn pleas to be heard again wasn't an option. Thus, Loving On The Flip Side again offers the enthused a chance to listen to, read about and reflect on another great burst of black American creativity: the creation of the sublime genre we like to call "sweet funk." It seems laughable to skip past Thomas East s "Slipping Around" 7" for the cheesy funk of "Just A Trip", or to listen obsessively to Lou Ragland's instrumental funk on the Hot Chocolate LP and ignore his indolent-yet-stirring "We Had True Love." Yet we did just that, until we and the production team known as Truth & Soul first heard the Darling Dears and Funky Heavy's beautiful two-sider nearly ten years back. This was the record that set Loving On The Flip Side in motion, as the Darling Dears and Funky Heavy's two songs precipitated the sweet funk genre: the dichotomy of Funky Heavy's skull snapping rhythm section and the teenage Dears angelic harmonies didn t sound like anything we d heard before. That discovery set off a decade long search for the band and culminated in their discovery, the documenting of their stories, the emergence of their master tapes and the inclusion of their songs on Loving On The Flip Side. The excitement we felt while listening to the Darling Dears and Funky Heavy's masterworks forced us back into the field, in search of other sweet funk swooners and beat-heavy ballads to round out this anthology. The opportunity to present anew such wondrous soul music made the exhaustive process that produced Loving On The Flip Side worthwhile, and allowed us to collect one-offs that escaped prior investigations into the deep funk and sweet soul genres.

What can I say? I'm used to buying obscure soul recordings since I love discovering new music that often didn't get the attention it deserved when first released. This package is special. Not only does it have detailed liner notes on the music, it comes with an entire 80-page book of carefully detailed research and photos of the groups included within this CD. This is clearly a labor or love from the people involved and features some great slow soul gems from the late 60's through the 70's that I'm pretty confident most of us have never heard! Filled with soulful songs that have that "sung directly from the heart" feel, this is a terrific collection!

A phenomenal collection of rare soul tracks. The packaging is what really sold me. $30 seems kinda steep until you realize 1) you're getting 2 LPs worth of songs and 2) this isn't some sloppily thrown together reissue. In addition to the aesthetic quality of the release there's also a fantastic booklet with some history on the music itself. Unfortunately, I've now received 2 different copies that had warped LPs. I'm not sure if it's an issue on Amazon's end or the labels, but it's pretty annoying.
