AllMusic Review by

Keb Darge is a Scottish DJ; Paul Weller is a British rock star. Both have a refined taste for Northern soul and other areas of R&B, something that’s keenly on display on their 2010 compilation Lost & Found: Real R 'n' B & Soul. Divided neatly between Darge’s and Weller’s picks, with the former responsible for the first half and the latter the second, Lost & Found sounds like the work of one compiler, one with a fondness for jump blues that complements the cool, uptown groove on display on the rest of the record. Scanning the track listing, it would seem that Big T. Tyler and Daddy Cleanhead wouldn’t quite mesh with the ‘60s soul that comprises the bulk of the record, but Lost & Found is sequenced with the seamless grace of a great DJ, so this flows like a great party while kicking up a lot of little-known classics from both the less well-known (Emmitt Long, Elsie Wheat, the Creations) and the justly celebrated (Tammi Terrell, Bobby Blue Bland, Major Lance).
