This was an album I grew up with as an import 8 track tape that was played travelling around in our in car tape player.
I got around to remaking this mainly soul based Ronco compilation from my youth using digital sources because it was my first exposure to soul music and nicely condensed much of that eras top soul acts such as Barry White, Dramatics, Gladys Knight and the Whispers. It originally run for 62 minutes which with 24 tracks on it meant apart from sounding somewhat thin each track had to be edited down quite drastically to get it all to fit!
My new version isn't as I just matched the average levels between each song up nicely and comes to about 79 minutes in total transferring it to MiniDisc for personal playing.
