Description

Spine-tingling vocal group harmony Soul no matter which side you drop the arm on.

With Soul about to enter its death-throws, as Disco was lurking just around the corner. The guys at Capsoul, Columbus, Ohio craft an magnificent slab of pure vocal-group Northern Soul Crossover bacvked up with a dreamy sweet soul Lowrider ballad...

Having receiving the backing from top-jocks across Europe, this A-list example of contagious of local Soul gives up some delicious lead-vocal switching, laced through a twitchy two guitar rhythms of plectrum unison... unfolding as into tightly crochet vocal performance of real-deal Soul, that almost defies its street-level origins.

I'm a huge admirer of the vocal group sound The Dells, The Dramatics, The Manhattans etc. the silky smooth harmonies are replicated here by The Kool Blues and their impeccable delivery. But my real love is listening to local gatherings matching the skills of their peers, whilst preserving their authentic roots, giving up distilled Soul with a noticeable edge, retaining a purity some of the major record companies lose in the studio, over-producing trying to attain perfection..

These 3 lead vocals just pierce your heart with their individualism, that then effortlessly flows back into team harmony..

What I'm attempting to say is, this tune is utterly awesome, saturated in simplistic brilliance and dance-floor dynamism!

Whilst the flipside is a heart-melting "I Wanna Be Ready When The Hurt Comes My Way"

ITS ALL JUST TOO MUCH SOUL FOR ONE MAN TO TAKE!!!
