Various Artists (Dave Godin)

The “Dave Godin’s Deep Soul Treasures” series began life 20 years ago. Some music lovers will remember where they were when they first heard the initial CD; it made that sort of impact. The last volume hit the shops thirteen years ago, just in time for Dave to see his final creation before his death – which he knew was imminent.

Dave notated all the sides he considered worthy of inclusion in his series; once some awkward licensing problems are resolved it is likely a final volume will be issued, using mainly Dave’s own words to describe the music. It was his proudest achievement in a life that touched so many issues and people; above all he wanted to promote those recordings.
