  • In New York, the shape of African-American music was changing in 1970. Funk was now the thing. Groups like the Isley Brothers and Kool & The Gang were leading the charge and almost everyone was following, as can be heard on most of the tracks here. The structure of the music business was altering as well. Prominent independent record labels like Veep, Diamond and Amy that had featured strongly in previous LPs in this series, had already closed their doors, while other large concerns such as Musicor, Jubilee, Kapp and Shout were on their last legs. But despite this we’ve still been able to find 17 stunning soul songs to populate this album. And while funky rhythms predominate there is still room for mainstream soul, sweet soul and group harmonies to savour. Singers move from the rightly celebrated such as Garnett Mimms and Marva Whitney to the obscure Lee Jackson and Beverly Hammonds. But all of them demonstrate the power and prestige of Big Apple music at its best. HS26 Notes by John Ridley (to ship from June 12th)

  • Change was in the air for the Texas African American music scene in 1970. Funk had taken over as the major rhythmic style that underpinned so many arrangements and this is reflected on well over half of the songs on this LP. But of more lasting importance were the changes to the music industry model that had broadly lasted from the end of World War 2 – the Golden Age of the independent record labels. During this period it had been possible to borrow $200 from a local store owner and have enough to get a 45 out on the street. But not for much longer. Most of the old independent label owners had left the Texas scene by 1970 with only long standing record men like Don Robey, Huey Meaux and Foy Lee still operating. But studio costs were rising, pressing plant networks consolidating, small independent radio stations were closing their doors or adopting Top 40-only formatting; this all meant that newcomers were being priced out and unable to get any songs heard. And lastly the closure of more and more of the rural South’s “Mom & Pop” stores meant it was almost impossible to get new records into shops. So the mouth-watering songs on this LP are among the last from indie soul in Texas. Enjoy! HS27 Notes by John Ridley (to ship from June 12th)

  • As the Stax/Volt Revue was busy touring the world during 1967, the city of Memphis had become the place to cut soul records. America’s record companies were sending artists down in droves to grab a piece of that magical sound the city’s recording engineers and producers were conjuring up. Yet Stax wasn’t the only place in town cutting hit records. While Sam & Dave were recording Soul Man at Ardent Studios, Chips Moman was cutting James Carr’s The Dark End of the Street at Willie Mitchell’s Royal Studios. Moman also had a couple of studios of his own, East Memphis and American Sound, where John Richbourg recorded many Sound Stage 7 artists. This LP brings you sixteen tracks cut in the city during that golden year. It features some artists you know and others you may not, and ranges from upfront dancers to deep soul ballads – Memphis Soul ’67 at its very best! Notes by John Ridley (To ship from June 12th)
