History Of Soul
Various Artists - New York Soul 1968 LP
By 1968, Soul was clearly black music’s dominant force and New York was the place where most Soul records were produced. We were spoilt for choice in putting this 1968 compilation together. So many high quality songs available – but we have picked some of the best. Most have not been re-released before and are now available here for the first time since the days of their initial pressing. The full range of soul can be heard in these grooves – from Motownesque dancers, through mainstream soul offerings to the deepest of ballads. There is even the hint of the new funk stylings. But all the tracks feature top notch singers at the height of their powers – enjoy the sound of 1968 in the Big Apple!
