ZZ Hill’s US Kent recordings did not bring him huge commercial success, but the recordings he made for the company provided the catalyst for the R&B / Soul hits he would have during the 70s and his reinvention as a standard bearer for Blue/Soul in the early 80s. He recorded prolifically for the label for four years, issuing more than a dozen singles and two albums containing soul music of the highest quality. That’s It! is a 2 CD anthology that finally brings together everything the man recorded for the US Kent label in one place. CD 1 contains the A and B-sides of all of ZZ’s original US Kent 45s in chronological order and in mono, as they were heard at the time. Many of these mono mixes are making their UK Kent debut. CD 2 contains ZZ’s ‘concept’ US Kent album A Whole Lot Of Soul in stereo (again released for the first time on CD in its entirety), plus tracks and significant remixes released after ZZ left the label - including a few that are also new to UK Kent – again mostly in stereo. As well as the great music, the extensively researched session-by-session annotation and extensive array of label shots and rare photographs will ensure That’s It! is welcomed by all collectors of quality 60s soul. Compilation and notes by Tony Rounce. Issued on Kent CDTOP2 476.
