Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Godinesque may well be a new adjective in our language, but aptly describes this latest volume of Deep Soul Treasures in which Dave has compiled a selection combining some old favorites (of mine, anyway!) and some left-field gems. In latter years, deep soul has become synonymous with ballads, but Dave originally coined the term to apply to songs deep in passion and intensity of delivery rather than to reflect tempo, so don't expect a session of moody ballads - though these are generously represented.

My earliest recollections of 'D the G', as he was fondly known in South London soul circles, are of long evenings spent deep in discussion - soulful and philosophical - on topics from Ruth Brown through Diana Ross to Immanuel Velikovsky (it was some years before I returned Dave's copy of 'Worlds In Collision'), and while we may have crossed swords on odd occasions during four decades, we have maintained a mutual respect for each other's soulful integrity, which is why I consider it an honor and privilege to write this piece.

This volume combines equal measures of familiarity and obscurity - 'Great Unknowns' as we used to call them - and a number of tracks are testament to Godin crusades of past years - Jean Plum with a near-neurotic intensity driven by Willie Mitchell's formulaic production, the haunting, hopeful vocal of Bessie Banks, Jerry Williams' arrangement for Doris Duke, which grabs you with a dominant bass figure then juggles your aural senses as Doris delivers a four-minute chapter of emotional torture, and the southern soul simplicity of Loretta Williams come to mind, while the renaissance of Baby Washington with Breakfast In Bed is typical of Dave's appreciation of a soulful epic of infidelity.

Established deep soul favorites include pre-funk James Brown taking the blues to church with tearful passion, Bobby Womack with a Memphis production from his early solo years before the philosophizing poet emerged, Etta James' elegiac anthem so ably molded by Rick Hall, Irma Thomas reflecting on her personal life in transferring New Orleans roots to the sophistication of Barnum's West Coast production, and Bettye Lavette's raw, hurt vocal plea of lost love.

Deeper into the vaults, Dave presents Dee Clark, whose tender high tenor voice (an influence on Smokey Robinson) graces Tender Moments, a period ballad arranged by Robert Banks, (maintaining the Godin connection with that family) - Syl Johnson's bitter anthem of social comment was a Top 20 R&B hit, but is little-remembered and less played over three decades, while J.R. Bailey, one-time latter-day member of the Cadillacs, was a cult-figure of 70s soul with distinctive appeal in the pleasing ballad Turn Around.

Left-field gems include Ray Gant & Arabian Knights with a typical 70s Detroit harmony item, while from a decade earlier a trademark quality Jerry Ragovoy production by the Enchanters boasts a killer opening line - ''I paid for the party in teardrops'', and further lyrical infidelity prevails through Rozetta Johnson, whose performance is crafted by the masterful talent of Sam Dees.

There are stories of US radio DJs creating hits by playing a single over and over, and my Solar Radio show (Sky Digital 944 - Sunday at 8pm) could follow suit via the 'repeat' button on track 19 - Barbara & the Browns with an archetypal deep soul wailer!!! Equally worthy of mention is Maxine Brown's all-time classic of melancholia, while Bobby Bland sums up the influence of soul music on my life, Too Far Gone To Turn Around, a timeless marriage of blues and soul. Good to the last coda! -- Clive Richardson, Kent Records UK

Review

Listening to Dave's exquisite new collection, I am again moved by the extraordinary vocals and the spirit of the music. Like all great music it is timeless, and makes me very proud to know Dave and to have been in at the beginning. This is it! A collection of the best of the best. --Vicki Wickham (Producer of 'Ready Steady Go!' and director of Take Out Productions, New York)

Dave Godin is still quite likely the best friend real Soul Music has ever had. --Tony Rounce

God's own soul messenger on earth. --Mick Taylor

The Deep Soul Treasures surpasses itself yet again with this third volume of obscure artists and lost classics. A chart position does not define the greatness of a song. The hits are just what is shoved down the throats of the collective public over the airwaves. I knew only three tracks off this collection before buying it-James Brown's mournful "Lost Someone",Etta James' slow burning classic "I'd Rather Go Blind" and Rick James'
classic and classy duet with Smokey Robinson-"Ebony Eyes". The other 22 cuts held for me the thrill of discovery. Some of these artists weren't great but cut at least one classic song and deserve their music to be heard. I recognise some of these artists from previous Deep Soul editions-Toussaint McCall, Eddie and Ernie, Bessie Banks, Doris Duke, Irma Thomas and each one does a completely different style of song on this one. An album such as this of lost classics is a real treat to the Soul music lover who thinks he has heard it all. More,please!!

Oh, not in the sense of #1's as many of these stars are obscure artists who never got the recognition so righteously deserved! I
went to high school in Harlem, N.Y.C. at the height of the Motown era and never heard of many of these artists and while that may be the case, I'm forever indebted to Mr. Godin for exposing me to such treasures...from the Knight Brothers to Bessie Banks to the Incredibles and Eddy & Ernie, these three volumes are among the best soul music available anywhere on Earth! I started with Volume three and imediately purchased Volumes one & two! No decent soul collection is without these three CD's and they say more is coming! I, for one, just can't wait!

At the outset it has to be said that you should check out the excellent reviews for Volumes one and two of this series on the Amazon lists. Volume Three is an equal to the others, and depends on the collecting fanaticism of Dave Godin and the largely unsung Ady Croasdell. The tracks are all part of an English phenomonen known as "Northern Soul" and represent a wide cross section of largely unknown American performances. There are well known songs such as the Maxine Brown,Irma Thomas and Etta James tracks, but the delight is that they are mixed with complete unknowns (Robert Ramsey/Barbara and the Browns) and "B" sides like Bessie Banks "It sounds like my baby" the original "B" side of "Go Now".There are also two absolute classic golden Gems. The first is "Thanks for Yesterday" by Eddie and Ernie ( who seem to be favourites of Godin) and the magical "I'm missing you" by Loretta Williams from the JOTIS label. Don't just buy this one - buy all three! There are more volumes to come!

WHILE I HAVE SOME OF THE CUTS ON THIS CD ON OTHER COMPILATRIONS, THERE ARE ALSO SOME RARE GEMS HERE (EDDIE AND ERNIE, BESSIE BANKS, SYL JOHNSON). VOLUME ONE WAS FANTASTIC, VOLUME TWO, NOT QUITE AS GOOD, BUT VOLUME THREE IS JUST AS GOOD AS THE FIRST ONE. GET IT.
