While there may always be a few covers that could have gone in, or perhaps been left out, this does a superb job of documenting many of the important ones and with some rare ones too, it gives you a great overview of the era.
On top of all that, there are also insightful interviews with legendary producer Larry Mizell, Daptone's Gabriel Roth and biographer David Ritz; as well as top 10 lists from DJs Steinski, Danny Krivit, Quantic, Egon and Andy Smith. With its large format, cut-out record sleeve cover, and its wealth of high quality reproductions, its just perfect for the funk and soul collector.
Great choice of soul and funk covers, most of the groups you'd expect to see are featured along with some less known but with interesting covers.
Most pics are accompanied by some useful and informative notes.
A book that is good to hold and look at with one huge bonus for me - made me dust down my old record deck and hunt out my old records! Had a great time looking over the covers and sleeve notes, let alone listening to the actual music!
Also encouraged me to seek out some of the albums featured that were new to me. Most could be found on Spotify, You Tube etc. A great way to discover new music.
In his introduction, Joaquim Paulo writes "This is a love story .............a vinyl disc is also a work of art. Picking up a record ...taking hold of the cover ...."
If you know what he means then buy this book! You'll love it!
100% recommended! A book to treasure and be treasured.
