Where Southern Soul Began Vol. 3 2CD

Where Southern Soul Began Vol. 3 2CD



As Southern Soul reached its Golden Age around 1965-65, it was mining a rich seam of music that went back to blues gospel and country. In our third look at the music that went into Southern Soul, we have unearthed a shining array of rare gems from both male and female singers, who scream, cry and shout out their emotions. This elemental feel to the collection goes hand in hand with stunning arrangements and musicianship that will bring joy to anyone’s heart.

Soul 002 & 017 Where Southern Soul Began 1 & 2
‘These two 2-cd volumes are a fine way to trace the roots of what we now call ‘southern soul’, beginning back in 1954 through to 1962,.I immediately want to deliver a ‘star pick’ rating to the first volume., ultimately, its clear that the two sets are highly complimentary, excellently presented and really should be sitting together on the record shelves.’
STAR PICK***** x2. Bob Cole Basement Group Review

‘Listening to the impressive tracks on these 2 CDs, and reading through the full colour 28 page booklet that accompanies it, these influences are mostly easy to identify and associate with. The overall standard of these 54 tracks is amazingly high and there are hours of fun to be had here, in the unlikely event that you ever tire of this collection, there is always the rest of the series to catch up with!’
Red Lick Records

Designed by connoisseurs for connoisseurs, these amazing collections of rare sides have notes written by John Ridley, that great treasure hunter of soul music. Once you’re on the train it moves at breakneck speed. Houston, Nashville, New Orleans, Memphis, Chicago, the stations parade by, never stopping more than three minutes on the same artist, the time it takes to listen to one side of a 45. Some well-known faces sit alongside a genuine crowd of forgotten heroes of soul and rhythm and blues. Perfectly delightful and surprisingly varied.
