Dave Godin and Deep Soul Treasures

Jon Savage, Guardian, The, 12 September 1997

IN POP'S millenial time travel, the compilation has become an art form in itself: a highly practical method of mapping a history that is still up for grabs. Like all the best compilations, Dave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures matches scrupulous research with passionate, first hand knowledge: the product of a highly personal vision, this astonishing collection of mid to late 60's soul, like the music that it encodes, makes you see the world in a different way.

Total word count of piece: 1970
