    Killer super-rare Madeline Bell library release par excellence!

    Includes the monster rare groove fave "That's What Friends Are For"! (reissued as a 7" on Jazzman)

    Soulful songstress and Blue Mink founder member Madeline Bell is the featured artist on this Vocalion '2 albums on 1 CD' reissue. Both The Voice of Soul (1976) and The Sound of Soul (1976) were recorded as library music for the Themes International publishers and issued on two now very rare and collectable LPs. On The Voice of Soul, Madeline is backed by The Rhythm Section - the Themes International 'house' band - which comprised the formidable talents of Alan Hawkshaw (keyboards), Alan Parker (guitars), Barry Morgan (drums), Les Hurdle (bass guitar) and Frank Ricotti (percussion). The soulful, funky grooves of The Voice of Soul are also featured on The Sound of Soul, the only difference being that Madeline Bell is not featured, allowing the backing tracks to be heard on their own. Madeline re-recorded a few of The Voice of Soul titles for her 1976 PYE album This is One Girl, and this Vocalion CD is a fine reminder of her superlative vocal talents. REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL STEREO TAPES

    Unbelievably good!
