OLD TOWN And BARRY SOUL SURVEY: Two terrific New York black music labels revisited and rediscovered.
The original Kent compilation of Old Town and Barry soul (CDKEND 111) has been unavailable for many years and the time is right for a fresh look at the labels Northern output.
The track-listing has been completely revamped and now includes many cuts not on the original release, plus more recent discoveries like the Earls Over Again, Bobby Longs Gotta Have Love Too and Beverly McKays Say It With A Feeling.
It includes all-time Northern classics by Jesse Johnson, Lorraine and the Delights, the Sparkels, the Fiestas and Freddie Houston, which have not been on disc for a long time.
