      Second in the series of truly great obscure deep Miami soul. This is outstanding original material [from '66 - '71] ranging from soulful to funky, plus some very credible covers. Incl's extensive liner notes. Vital and vibrant.

        From Miami, this compilation involves a mysterious and hard-to-get box of tapes belonging to one Willie Clarke, founder of Deep City Records, who may or may not have held a secret stash of Miami soul?? This is an appendix to the Miami soul story, and the material here is all generally pretty good. Helene Smith unsurprisingly is the heart and soul of the album. Beyond her, the other female singers all sound rough around the edges or just plain immature, with the possible exception of Betty Wright. Head for ‘True Love Don’t Grow On Trees’ by Helene Smith, for an awesome soul moment.
