Truth & Soul is proud to present the CD version of The Soul Fire Box Set. A 7" inch Vinyl Box Set was released for Black Friday Record Store Day that contained some of the rarest sides from the catalog. This 2CD issue of the same Box Set includes all of those tracks, plus another 19 from the coveted Soul Fire catalog. Soul Fire Records, started in 1999 by Phillip Lehman, produced some of the funkiest recordings to ever make it to 45. Many of those 45's from the Soul Fire catalog are nearly impossible to find today, and if and when they do come up for sale, they fetch top dollar. Soul Fire closed its doors in 2003 when Phillip stepped away from the music business to pursue other ventures. He left the studio to Jeff Silverman & Leon Michaels, who then started what today is known as Truth & Soul Records. This 2CD set contains some of the rarest sides from the Soul Fire catalog, and liner notes from Phillip himself.
Top Customer Reviews
The first disc of this double offering was originally released on vinyl only showing the best cuts the label had to offer. The CD release added a second disc and 16 more cuts.
There's only a couple vocal songs on here courtesy of Lee Fields. The rest are funk workouts or cool slow jams.
You'll find much the same players under different names such as El Michels Affair, Bronx River Parkway, The Soul Diggers, Third Eye, Bama & the Family.
Modern Funk is an accurate description and a welcome addition to your future party sounds.
Oh yes, and this. I'm docking one star for the lack of extra information on the sleeve. No bios, not even writing credits. That could've been better.
