A lot of this was dance music which was the focus of "The Old Town And Barry Soul Survey" CD (CDKEND 244). An R&B feel to a fair proportion of the recordings was retained and the success of southern soul artists such as Otis Redding reinforced this. Gritty singers Lester Young and Jesse G made records with a horn section rather than strings, and several releases had more than a touch of "Memphis" about them.
This CD highlights the deep soul of Old Town / Barry records with the emphasis firmly on the quality of the singing and emotional depth of the pieces.
Although one or two tracks have appeared on other CDs both in Japan and the UK, the vast majority of tracks are reissued here for the first time.
The package includes a lavish booklet in the finest Kent tradition with captivating and highly-informative notes.
