It's Your Voodoo Working: The Best of Excello



Released: 9th May 2011


out of stock

wowza! this is a terrific compilation of tunes from the splendid excello records label.

  hailing from nashville tennessee, excello records started in early 50s as a gospel label but quickly became synonymous with the burgeoning us r&b scene. blues, r&b & funk, raw, driven & authentic; this is the sound that spread from the "rockin’ south" across the atlantic to be a major influence on british rock & pop. the fantastic opener by charles sheffield that the comp is named after is classic r&b & some choice cuts from slim harpo, bobby powell & lazy lester mark this as an excellent pre-cursor to rock ‘n’ roll. umc
