About this item

There's no let up from the Wagram camp this week, who hook us up with no less than four killer comps. Keeping things decidedly binary, they've taken a battle of the sexes approach, furnishing us with 'Funk Women', 'Jazz Men', 'Jazz Women' and 'Soul Men'.

'Soul Men' serves us nothing but the finest male vocal soul cuts of the 60s and 70s in an all killer no filler fashion. Special mention has to go for Side C with a run of worldies from Gil Scott-Heron, Aaron Neville, Darondo, Lonnie Liston Smith and Joe Simon.
