This review is from: Eccentric Soul: The Big Mack Label (Audio CD)
If you like or are interested in learning about rare soul and funk, research can be a daunting task. Thousands recorded a song or two in the 60s and 70s. Expert DJs are still circling the globe to dig through cashes of these 45s
A good way to start your homework is not by artist, but labal. Ecentric Soul has done a lot of this for you. Vol 9, the Big Mac labal, is excellent. The compilation is chronological, so you get gutbucket 60s soul, and later, slick 70s work, some of which borders on jazz (check out the version of Peggy Lee's "Fever" and "Feel It" by Suger Re Jones.) The cross section here is great and you can really see how the music changed from the 60s to the 70s, as production and session players became more sophisticated.
All the work here ranges from good to outstanding, and this is a great CD for novice or expert.
