Overview

Founded in 1975 by record dealer Ted Carroll, former Horslips manager Roger Armstrong, and industry vet Trevor Churchill, Britain's Ace Records -- its name borrowed from producer Johnny Vincent's legendary American label -- reigns among the world's most ambitious and rewarding reissue imprints, restoring to print untold numbers of long-lost R&B, soul, and rock & roll classics overlooked by major labels in their rush to endlessly repackage the same shopworn hits. One of four anniversary compilations issued in celebration of Ace's 30th birthday, this 20-track compilation spotlights the label's vast soul and funk catalog, including material licensed from such landmark labels as Stax, Goldwax, and Westbound. No other label treats this music with as much reverence and affection, and while the track listing may contain rarities and minor hits, few compilations so effectively translate the true scope and spirit of post-civil rights black popular music. Highlights include Bettye Swann's "Make Me Yours," Bobby Angelle's "Too Much for You," Ann Alford's "Got to Get Me a Job," and the Persians' "I Can't Take It Anymore."
