5.0 out of 5 stars Big Apple soul, 27 Nov 2013
This review is from: Lonely Avenue - Soul From New York 1955-1962 (Audio CD)
This collection reassures us that in its day, the Big Apple really was a hot Soul town and any CD that has the guts to open with a Ray Charles track must know what it is doing as Ray, who for many rapidly became an MOR must-to-avoid was arguably the first Soul singer. Unlike Chicago or Detroit where migrants went principally to work and then evolve into entertainers, the bright lights of New York attracted a whole spectrum of professional, amateur and aspiring musicians in their own right. If Chicago had the Blues and Detroit, Motown then surely NYC had the lot.
This double CD contains 64 amazing tracks 9/10ths of which are totally new to me. The History of Soul guys, Nick Duckett and Stewart Tippett who compiled this collection called upon material from big boys such as Atlantic and King and also some nice obscure labels such as Vest and Fountainhead. The featured artists are similar; the Isley Brothers and Ike & Tina Turner through to the Kansas City Tom Cats and the Gay Poppers. At under eight quid this is a must for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge and enjoyment of the early years of Soul. Keith Rylatt
