The hilarious thing is, you tube is now, and has been for a very long time, the backbone of keeping great music alive & helping it transcend generations. Its a powerful source of marketing & nobody with integrity or influence over the general public wants to use an MP3 ripped from you tube. Most people hear something there, then go and buy it on sites like where we are now. Most of our youth seeking knowledge aren't queuing up in the local record store anymore, their trawling the net. So companies such as VMG are technically so behind the times, they might as well be sat with James Brown in the afterlife- him trawling through hours of new music trying to spot a funky drummer sample to bust, them shutting down you tube accounts- the very accounts that are doing their advertising for them- FOR FREE! R.I.P copy write busters- you'll be extinct way before the music.

All that was said by the previous reviewers is true; however, it must be regarded as a huge downer that a giant company and "chief copyright hunter" like VMG now owns Salsoul. This will, effectively, continuously lead to more and more cease-and-desist letters as well as future account bans on Youtube if you only dare put up *ONE* of the classics now "governed" upon by Verse. And hence it should not come as a big surprise that loads of users on YT just willing to share good music have had their years-long work DESTROYED by just one complaint filed by the Verse music video copyright hunters! Oh yes, I wish Salsoul were still a company of their own in the 2010's.

legendary disco label with outstanding artist and excellent sound that still burns today - First Choice´s "Let No Man Put Asunder" changed a whole Generation with massive Influence on the House-Scene, imitated and sampled a thousand times, but never reached that outstanding Quality in Sound, Songwriting and furious Power, pressed in a twelve inch Single !

Absolute classic label.
No self respecting house head should be without at least one of Salsoul's releases.From the originals to the remixes, the dj's, producers and the vocalists, it's all good.
