Some might think that soul music’s days of chart glory came later, but by the time Ray Charles was anointed High Priest of Soul in 1961, black America’s airwaves were habitually using the term soul to describe a gospelized R&B style that had been producing reliable hits since the late 50s. This collection represents the emergence of that fabulous sound in the charts in New York (the centre of the country’s recording industry), the Midwest (Cincinnati, Detroit, Chicago), the South (Georgia, Memphis, New Orleans, Texas), and the West (Los Angeles).

‘First off I must say that having discovered your compilations earlier this year – both r’n’b and soul – I am completely blown away by the breadth and depth, quality and value of these compilations. They immediately became ‘must buys’ until your release rate caused me to slow down before I bankrupted myself. Keep up the good work.’
Malcolm Beattie (Rnb and Soul fan)
