Let me start with my favourite track – the said future anthem. “Reset To Zero” is a majestic slab of modern 60s Soul with all the right elements to make it a true monster. The tough, brassy edge and deep bassline will make the dancefloor seethe, heave and throb. This is yet another song which makes me quickly check to see what year it is on the calendar! Oddly enough, it's not 1968 but 2009! Will someone wake me?! Check it out. Amazing track. “Wud If I Cud” is a left-of-centre hard 60s groove with real edge and urgency. This reminds me of the harder sounds employed by Andy Lewis on his excellent “Billion Pound Project” a few years back on Acid Jazz. Excellent stuff. If you could see the smile on my face as I hear this CD...that's the exact power of Great Soul Music in action! “No Me Without You” is a good companion piece to this track and should also work well on more discerning dancefloors. The Southern, raw ballad feel of “I'm A Fool For You Now” reminds me – musically - so much of the gritty, big hitters such as Howard Tate or Solomon Burke. “Looking Through The Window” is a real winner too – who says they can't make music like they used to??? Also check the rumbling stomper “Tell Me How” which simply dominates the speakers. This is a bit on the poppy side – but hey! Look at how many of our heroes are loved and respected in the past for material such as this?!
