Is there a more crucial reissue label than Ace? If it had never released anything other than the Dave Godin Deep Soul comps, that would be enough…

I totally love their impeccable anthologies documenting the lesser known productions of famous and not so famous producers and songwriters.

I’m probably never going to get my hands on even one of these 45s, and without Ace I’d never have heard perfect little gems like “You Can’t Run Away From Me”. Ace does god’s work.

UPDATE: Incompetent hotlinking fixed.
