Fans of Motown, Money, Stax etc are going to love this – as long as they are not imprisoned and blinkered by snobbery or dogma. I hope that there is going to be a turning of the wheel, a fresh look at R&B in America. Like the prodigal son, the music has strayed far too wayward from it's home and it's time for it to come back home, pride swallowed and start all over again. You can pick any track on here and you will be in the presence of excellence. My faves on here – well bar the head-scratching Jay Z moment – take your pick. The explicit Motown groove of “Staying In Love” is marvellous, as is “Take A Walk” with Stax overtones, the Cameo Parkway Philly sound of “Never Give You Up” is smashing and the early Motown sounding opener “Sure Hope You Mean It” is another classy effort. Now this is what I call Instant Vintage! Raphael, you've gone up in my estimations no end, my friend.
