New York Soul '66 (2017 edition)

history of soul



2cd

Released: 20th Oct 2017

£11.99


bringing the rsd release to cd, This selects criminally overlooked soul gems from the bars and streets of 60’s new york. The Big Apple had long been an important centre of Afro-American music, following on from its Tin Pan Alley status, and this trend continued after World War Two. Together with large independent labels like Atlantic and Jubilee, smaller labels jostled for sales in a crowded marketplace, recording almost all the black music styles: country blues, city R&B, gospel, doo wop – and everything in between. By 1966, soul was the dominant musical genre throughout the US, and New York was THE dominant recording centre, producing more records than anywhere else. for further listening, try ‘soul transfusion’,  ‘mainstream modern soul 2’, and ‘the voices of east harlem’.
