Album: Doris Troy, I'll Do Anything – The Doris Troy Anthology (Kent)

This hugely enjoyable survey of the late, sorely undervalued Troy begins with a quartet of tunes that could rival anyone: the stunning Northern title track followed by singalong anthem "Face Up to the Truth", the still swoonable "Just One Look" (a massive influence on the Beatles), and then "What'Cha Gonna Do About It", a digest of soul's greatest virtues.

We move from Atlantic to Apple, soul to disco, reggae to rap before returning to gospel in the final track.
