What is your impression .... ? To me these Dave Godin hommage compilations seem always to be uneven (without even starting to re-discuss Godin`s misconception of "Deep Soul") .... still some gems on offer here like "I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else" by The Masqueraders, "(Until Then) I'll Suffer" by Barbara Lynn, "I Will" by Lattimore Brown,"Satisfaction Guaranteed" by Judy White ....

I saw them live in 1980 when they played about the repertoire from this album. Especially I remember "Double Arc Jake" , the famous Don Pullen composition.

Oh yes I definitely agree with you, the series is uneven. I've always assumed/accepted that these compilations sought to tap into the "collector" market. I know that market is strong down here but unfortunately many "collectors" equate rarity with quality. You know, it's rare/prev. unreleased and therefore a masterpiece!!

Still, overall I really like this series. Going by memory, I don't recall anything terrible on here, but a few just ok. You got me thinking, so I'll dig these out tonight to refresh my memory. The strongest tracks are indeed superb, but not particularly rare. Artists most Soul fans would probably already have in their collections. Though Kenny Carter, Timmy Willis (and others) were highlights for me back in the nineties. 

The 5 volumes would make an unbeatable 2 CD set, no?

 

Now playing - Taj Mahal for me this morning (The Natch'l Blues)

Interesting take on the Police. I like Juliana, but some of her albums (like this one) are uneven.

Very impressive stuff - master musicians with quite a history prior to becoming ARS

What would be your Ace Deep Soul Compilation choices where they got it right both from the collector`s and the music`s perspective ..... ?

I would award some of these .... :
