Various Artists ‎– "Pow City! FABulous Shakers Soul Party" (CD, No Label / Crypt? - 2000)

Another digital disc full o' buttshakin', wailin' soul and funky 45s, quite probably by the hands of Tim Warren! The whole (party) spirit throughout this CD it's from the period of time when the soul music was morphing and transforming into something funkier. The beats are heavier, more African oriented but not at all "ethnic". A plain rawness that had only in mind to shake some ass and nothing else. I got this at first just for King Little Richard's "Soul Train" but maaaaaan, imagine my surprise when I've found out that it was just another killer shot of hot-shit rhythm shaker among others!!! Dig also Dottie Campbell's groovy reworking of the Sir Douglas Quintet "He's About A Mover" (with THAT crazy and naughty organ, man!) or Andre Williams and Andre Williams disguise as Jomo or The Ditalians opener "I Gotta Go" which is an absolute cracker. 22 ultra rare stompers and groovers for your parties. Don't worry, dance now, you can thank me later!

    1. It says that "The server hosting this file is temporarily overloaded." I guess it'll be fixed. If not, remind me to upload it on another host.

  5. The original link seems to be working now, so thank you! Really looking forward to blasting this one, as WTS never fails to disappoint with the choice sounds.

    One idea (not a complaint, just a constructive suggestion) - maybe start uploading to a server site like Zippyshare or MEGA or something that offers free high-speed downloads for one and all? I'm sure WTS has its reasons for preferring FileFactory, but assuming you don't own FF or haven't already bought a lifetime subscription, maybe you'd consider going with a different server. Again, just a thought / suggestion, and definitely appreciate the hard work (and good taste!) that goes into making this site as good as it is.
