An hour of Northern Soul gems. In these 22 tracks, we find tributes to BBQs, pleas to the DJ, tons of barely-known soul sisters, admissions of guilt, inspirational personal-as-political uplifters, sultry jams, soul stars in their youth, would-be-soul-stars who died too young, and much more.

Of the most hypnotizing order, Portland, Oregon‘s Lynnae Gryffin creates songs that are almost not songs, but instead long walks through woodland folklore. It’s something ancient and indirect. Amazing (and brilliantly odd) ambient guitar work mixes with a voice that is as much wise scholar as it is child-like wonder.Lynnae Gryffin- William Reminder
