The release of Soul For Dancers 2: Out On The Floor Firecrackers has been met with acclaim from the likes of MOJO, who hailed it’s range of “Smoochers as well as stompers” and concluded that the set includes “a good flow of sounds; your party will be jumpin”.
Soul specialists Soul & Jazz & Funk also remarked that the compilation resembled “another wonderful early soul and R&B collection”, whilst BBC Radio 6 Music‘s Lauren Laverne made it her Compilation of The Week, praising Lois Wilson’s selections: “An assortment of stone cold classics and lesser-known gems from the dawn of northern soul. This compilation sees Lois Wilson digging into the crates and coming up trumps with choice cuts from the 60s club scene, encompassing everything from Etta James and a very young Marvin Gaye to sometimes-overlooked figures like Gino Parks and Lula Reed. Each one of these songs contributes to a portrait of one of the most vibrant and fondly remembered scenes in musical history.”
The first edition of Soul For Dancers is also still available. Two collections of early soul & proto-soul rhythm & blues venerated by club soul diehards and guranteed to get you out on the floor.
