Most people who know about this CD are familiar with the clever commercial that uses the above phrase (if you missed it,a guy asks his friend to borrow the album and gets the above response). However, it's one of the best economy-priced collections of it's kind, as it not only includes the familiar stuff from oldies radio, but also tunes that will only be known by hardcore Soul music fanatics (like followers of the "Northern Soul" phenomenon in England) and those who listened regualrly to Black radio stations in the late 60s and early 70s. No, this is no hapazard K-Tel type of quickie compilation with overplayed stuff that anyone can find on an oldies station-this is the REAL THING at a most reasonable price. So if anyone asks you to borrow this, do like the smart guy and the commercial and tell them-"Uh Uh my brother-you got to get your OWN!"

I saw the TV ad for the Hey Love CDs; and after hearing samples of the songs they contain, I knew I had to own them. Even if you did not grow up in the 60s or 70s; if you enjoy listening to nonexplicit, yet very romantic tunes, you'll want to add this CD to your collection. I ordered both, but I listen to volume 2 more. I also ordered an extra set for a close friend who also grew up in this era and mentioned once to me that Me and Mrs. Jones is one of her favorite tunes. The set makes a great gift for yourself as well as others who enjoy this type of music.

Fans of late night and sweet soul music should definitely pick up this collection and if you're not yet a fan it's a great primer. And there's every reason to become a fan.
This is great stuff: more mellow and subdued than Motown and more sophisticated than Stax. This is the heavily orchestrated hybrid that blossomed in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia in the mid-60s and now enjoys a substantial cult following in England as "Northern Soul". It deserves a reappraisal here.
This collection gathers 20 of the best examples of the genre from 1965-1971 (with Barbara Mason's "Yes I'm Ready" the earliest track and the Chi-Lites' "Have You Seen Her" the latest). The selection which features obvious hits like "Yes I'm Ready", "Stay in My Corner" and the Chi-Lites hit along with wonderful obscurities like "Count to Ten" (a track almost impossible to find anywhere else) and Brenda and the Tabulations "The Touch of You" is impeccable. These choices capture what Northern Soul was all about from the glory of love and heartbreak to shimmering harmonies and adventurous orchestration. The sequencing also comes close to perfection.
The only area where the set fails is in its presentation. The sound is not all it could be with occasionally indifferent remastering. Some songs in fact (Barbara Mason and Brenda and the Tabulations) sound like needle drops (recordings made from an LP record instead of session tapes). Given the scarcity of the Mason tracks on CD these days even this is forgivable. It's a relief just to have them. Nonetheless, don't be disappointed if the sound is not up to some other soul reissues you've bought in recent years.
Equally problematic is the lack of liner information.

I recently came across my own hey love album which I hadn't listened to for years since purchasing it back in 2000/2001 while seeing the commercial for it. I forgot what an amazing album this is and downloaded it right to my itunes. I did not grow up in the motown era, but sometimes wonder what it would have been like to.

This album is packed with different artists from that era with their hit songs from the 60s and 70s. This album just makes one daydream and bring up old memories of flames you had or girls you perhaps once fancied. This album always makes the romantic imagination take off and often brings me back to school dances in middle school dancing with that cute girl.

This is when music was still wholesome and innocent and therefore should be cherished. It's timeless. I highly recommend this album to anyone. If you don't like it you can always give it to someone who grew up in that time who would cherish it. Equally as lovely is volume 2.

when we are young we get deep into the current sounds...i was madly in-love with lisa-lisa from cult jam...force md's was my group...anita baker came along and luther back when he was 'big'...then toni braxton came along and some others...they was all cool and will always have a place...
...but...

you have to have an imagination and the willingness to use it to best enjoy the music provided here...
