Budget compilation: Hip Soul double CD

Budget compilation: Hip Soul double CD

I think it might be a bit oversold on the cover, but the Hip Soul double CD looks good value regardless.

A double CD, 40 tracks and for just over a fiver. That sounds fair enough. As for the tracks, well the cover perhaps hints at a load of mod jazz floor fillers. Looking at the track listing, that’s not the case. This is a (very) mixed bag.

Yes, there are some big names here, but the music looks to be a mix of R&B, hammond, jazz and soul, as well as tracks are club plays plus tunes that are probably better described as slower, late night grooves.

That’s always the case with this type of compilation. This one just seems more eclectic than most. Anyway, have a look at the track listing below and if you want it, you can pre-order now for just £5.62.
