This is real dirty soul: some of the production is appalling, raw, untouched, and it’s precisely this which gives the finishing touch to the energy, the raw soul energy.
You’ll hear horn lines lifted straight from James Brown (Nathaniel Mayer’s “I Want Love and Affection” in all its fuzzy gloriousness), Lucho Macedo’s version of Tito Puente’s “Guayaba” has a Santanaesque solo of epic proportions and The Soul Survivors version of Otis Redding’s “Respect” is glorious (apart from the ridiculous and highly annoying whistle noises).
The fuzziness reaches levels you rarely come across and the whole collection demands massive respect for Vampisoul for yet again pulling some classics out of the vaults. Twenty-three Spanish and American filthy soul tracks to get you going.» (Fly)
