Product description

Product Description

* It used to be said that there are eight million stories in the Naked City. Here are twenty four such stories, depicting the happiness and hardships, the highs and lows of 1960s city life.

* All human life is here - from the anticipation of arrival in a Metropolis; the hardships of employment and unemployment; the finding and losing of love; and the escapes from reality that can be found `Up On The Roof'. Although many of these songs are set in and around New York, their message is pan-American and could just as easily apply to Chicago, Detroit or any other city where not all the inhabitants found that summertime meant that the living (or the loving) was easy.

* A host of soul music's most revered artists are assembled to tell this story, from Arthur Alexander to Aretha Franklin. Almost all of those who tell it sing from personal experience of having lived it.

* Those who feel a purchase coming on will be pleased to know that more than half of the inclusions are making their CD debut.
