    It's hard enough to define a term like soul without attempting to dissect its sub-genres. Suffice to say that whereas Northern soul aims to set feet dancing, deep soul goes straight for the heart. The recordings on this sequel to Dave Godin's widely praised first volume share a depth of emotion and a sincerity that has long made them collectors' items amongst the cognoscenti. Deep-soul knows no boundaries--Bessie Banks' "Go Now" has been retrieved from the generally uptown catalogue of Leiber & Stoller--but a lot of its exponents came from the Southern states and certain local producers (Jerry Williams Jr) and labels (SSS International, Ronn) are sure signs of quality.
    Dave Godin is not above including some big names. Deep-soul gems from Otis Redding, Ben E. King, and the peerless Irma Thomas rub shoulders with one-offs like Toussaint McCall's magnificent "Nothing Takes the Place of You." Dave Godin writes lucidly about each selection and his stated belief that overlooked cultural artifacts will one day achieve recognition and enrich our lives is deeply admirable.
