INDIE EXCLUSIVE, RSD UK APRIL RELEASE. Most southern soul fans will tell you that that the music produced in Memphis in 1967 and 1968 was the pinnacle of quality. So, following on from History Of Soul Records’ look at the River City’s soul output in 1967, the label now turns their attention to an album covering the next year. As before, the singers here are a heady mixture of local Tennessee talent and welcome soulful guests who journeyed down south hoping that a little of the famous Memphis magic would rub off on their songs. There are soul genres to suit all tastes here — from the deepest ballads to upbeat tracks that will rock your socks off. Soul doesn’t get much better than the artists and their tunes on this LP! Features Roscoe Robinson, Lamp Sisters, L H & The Memphis Sounds, Marvin Preyer, Oscar Toney Jr, Lee Rogers, Shortkuts, Eddie Harrison, James Fry, Joe Simon, L C Cooke, Masqueraders, Bart Jackson, Homer Banks, Double Soul, Terry Felton, and Ted Ford.
