More Info:

Compiled by label founder Dom Ore, 'Miles Away: One' is a collection of tracks that spans continents, era and genres. Rooted in soul this compilation features recordings from legendary musical figures side-by-side with perhaps lesser-known soulful gems - all beautifully bought together in one cohesive long player.Setting the tone is Idris Muhammad's spiritual-jazz recording 'I'm A Believer' before moving into the modern soul and funk selections Miles Away have built their reputation around. We have the crossover-soul rarity 'Yes It's You' by Eugene Smiley, the remarkable foot-to-the-floor soulful dance cut 'She's So Good' by Solid Gold Revue, enduring soul funk explosion 'No Communication' by True Transfusion, the gospel-infused 'Fantasy Ride' by Uneda Dennard & the full length extended version of 'Superstar' by Ruth Waters. Many tracks are appearing here for the first time since their original release.On the second disc the compilation begins to weave a slightly different direction compared to the output from Miles Away thus far. Here you'll find soundtrack and library music cuts from the likes of Czech artist Milan Kymlicka, renowned Argentinian composer Oscar Lopez Ruiz and noted Italian song-writer Paolo Zavallone alias Bimbo E I Milionari (edited by Ric Piccolo). Oddities and curiosities come in the form of 'Be My Friend' by Laine August - an 80s electro-pop gem courtesy of Freeez keysman Andy Stennett. There's the stripped back street-soul-sounding 'Deeper' by Colour and the breezy Latin American sounds of Paulina Virgo's 'Vale Valor'. Finishing the set is Lady Africa Margaret Singana's timeless cover of the Stretch track 'Why Did You Do It'.Painstakingly researched and officially licensed from the artists, producers and labels that originally put out this wonderful music. In-depth liner notes go into great detail about each artist depicting their histories, stories and music - something which has been at the heart of Miles Away from day one. This music deserves to live on long in the memory!Tracklisting:A1. Idris Muhammad - I'm a BelieverA2. True Transfusion & Linco - No Communication Pt. 1A3.
