"Plenty of soul shaking out here - a wicked collection of contemporary funk tracks that sound every bit as great as originals from the 60s and 70s! The set's filled with killer numbers that cook up heavy rhythms, searing instrumentation, and some sock-eyed vocals that really round the whole thing out nicely - with an especially strong focus on all the great female soul singers that have cropped up in recent years - really reviving the kinds of style we always loved in the work of Lyn Collins and Marva Whitney" - Dusty Groove America
