Product Description

Double Shot Of Soul is the first ever collection dedicated to the R&B and soul output of one of Los Angeles’ best-known indies in the late 1960s, Double Shot. Though the label hit paydirt with the 1966 garage rock hit ‘Psychotic Reaction’ by Count Five, the bulk of their catalogue was in fact soulful in nature. Double Shot’s other big act was Brenton Wood, and his success with hits such as ‘Gimme Little Sign’ drew mostly black acts to the company. Producers Hal Winn and Joe Hooven were veteran songwriters with a keenly honed sense of the commercial, which meant that, despite a lack of success for most of their artists, the material and production values were always strong and the quality of releases high. With the release schedule centering on the late 1960s, much of the material, from artists including Kent & The Candidates, Foxy and the Real Thing, has an appealing funky edge. Major artists on Double Shot, and its Whiz subsidiary, included Bobby Freeman and Shirley (of Shirley and Lee). The Invincibles and the Georgia Prophets are well known to soul collectors for their work on other labels. The Bagdads were a highly-regarded vocal outfit led by the late Ken Sinclair. Many tracks feature the songwriting and production prowess of Maurice Rodgers, the label’s in-house R&B staffer. Virtually everything on Double Shot Of Soul is making its debut on compact disc. Additionally, meticulous tape research through the labels vaults has thrown up superlative unissued material. Label owner Hal Winn and some of the acts, including Bobby Freeman, contribute to an extensive liner note that details the history of this interesting and little-heralded soulful outfit.

What Is Soul? 27 Jan. 2005
By M. Buchholz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
An impossibly wonderful collection of rarities from a Los Angeles based soul label. I wasn't familiar with any of the artists on this CD, but don't let that stop you - this is classic soul with an intelligent and often slyly humorous bent to the lyrics, as evidenced in songs like "Loving You is Killing Me," "Everybody's Got a Hang Up," "Put Another Dime in the Parking Meter," and the document-of-the-era "What Is Soul," in which voices of all ages attempt to define soul over a smokin' soul backdrop. While Motown and Stax may have dominated the charts in the late 60s, this CD is proof that vital music was still being made elsewhere. Good times.
