OUTTA SIGHT, in association with Real Side Records, presents 20 more ”real soul” gems from the Modern side of Northern Soul.
This unique playlist carries on the Real Side tradition of blending new recordings with classic seventies dance tracks and obscurities. The playlist features Real Side artist Roy Hemmings with the 2006 in-house production “Born To Break My Heart” which Roy took to the No.1 slot on the Carolina Beach Music Chart. We also include Real Side friends Walter Thomas with his sublime “So Long”, Lonne Givens’ laid-back groove “Dreams”, Angel with his Real Side hit “Break Out The Tears” and album cut “Why Me?” plus Jesse Gomez with both sides of his 1981 Mankind LA dancer “Lace” / “Baby I’m Coming At You”. The latter has been re-edited exclusively for Outta Sight and makes its CD debut here.
In true Real Side spirit we feature 70s anthems courtesy of Phyllis Hyman, Patterson Twins and Friends Of Distinction; collectors choices care of Oscar Perry, Na Allen and Charlie “Cole Black” Brown; contemporary cuts from the infamous Cuban Brothers with their dance floor workout “Ain’t No Need” and Craig Charles’ favourite “Robbin’ Hood” by Extra Curricular.
