Some years have passed since The Sweetest Feeling, Kent's first dip into the catalogue of the late Van McCoy, was issued to acclaim from soul fans all over the world. Back then Kent made a promise that, should sales warrant a second volume, they would release one. Well, it s taken a while for it to come together nine years, in fact but they are delighted to finally bring you that long-promised follow-up, This Is It! As promised in the notes to the previous set, the accent this time is predominantly on the upbeat.

Soul | Label: Ace Records

2014 collection. The Black America Sings brand of Ace's acclaimed Songwriter Series continues with a volume that salutes the songwriting genius of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The most prolific performer of Bacharach/David songs is Dionne Warwick and it's no surprise that so many other black American artists should also have dipped into their catalog down the years. LET THE MUSIC PLAY offers an engrossing cross-section of these, ranging from the Drifters, Jerry Butler and Dionne herself to '70's Soul superstars such as Bobby Womack, Gloria Gaynor and Isaac Hayes. The tracks featured provide a remarkable tribute to two men who, for more than a decade, wrote classic after classic.

The Casablanca Records Story is a 4CD box set exploring the soul and disco sides of Neil Bogart's Casablanca Records. Released in 1994, this is dedicated to just their soul and disco sides, not the rock side so no Kiss or Angel. This was taken from the promotional version of the collection so no booklet, as it was packaged in a thick case (clam shell).

Label: Rhino

Rhino's expansive six-CD box set of 1970s soul called Can You Dig It?, this wonderfully sequenced collection stands as an impressive survey of the genre in its own right, running the gamut from Al Green and Marvin Gaye to the Chi-Lites, Sly Stone, the Staple Singers, and Earth, Wind & Fire and beyond with nary a slack track in sight. It may technically be a sampler, but in being so it doesn't have the luxury of pausing for breath or historical reflection, which means this compilation, sampler or not, delivers bang for the buck from end to end.

Genre: Soul, Funk / Label: Kent Soul

For the whole of the 1970s, the Philly Sound was a leading and immediately identifiable component of black American music. A crack team of producers, songwriters and musicians raised worldwide awareness of Philadelphia soul to the level the Motown Sound had enjoyed during the previous decade. Anyone with half an ear for music could spot a Philly soul record by its opening bars, whatever the location of the label on which it appeared. In the same way the Motown Sound really came together after the company started recording almost exclusively in its own premises, the Philly Sound quickly took shape once Joe Tarsia, the former chief engineer at Cameo-Parkway Studios, opened Sigma Sound in 1968.

Collectables Records' various-artists compilation The Ultimate Christmas Album has been released both on its own and as a tie-in with a series of radio stations. There are identical editions of the album associated with KLUV, K-Earth 101 FM, and WCBS FM-101.1 in addition to this version, WJMK 104.3 Chicago. The word "ultimate" has been overused and misused in record releases to the point that it doesn't mean very much to see it on the cover of an album. Whether or not one considers this album to justify its title will have a lot to do with individual musical taste. If the potential consumer is a listener to one of the radio stations listed above, which are oldies stations devoted to playing pop/rock music of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, he or she may agree that the album is the ultimate in holiday music of that period.
