V/A – West Coast Soul ’66 (RSD UK)

Out of stock


INDIE EXCLUSIVE, RSD UK APRIL RELEASE. Soul music in Los Angeles was nearing its peak in 1966. The pre-eminent company was of course the giant Capitol Records and the up-tempo songs that they released at the time still retain great power and attraction for many dancers today. But there were several small, private concerns making soul music, looking for that one big hit, and singers who were trying to find the break that would take their careers onto a new and higher plane. This album nods towards Capitol but concentrates on the varying styles of soul that the smaller, more agile labels released at the time. Many of these have been overlooked for far too long now, but here is the perfect opportunity to find out just how strong and varied the West Coast soul scene really was in the middle of the 1960s. Features Fred Hughes, The Delicates, Fuller Bros, The Incredibles, Johnny Wyatt, Rose Brooks, Mickie Champion, Arin Demain, Sims Twins, Viola Wills, King Floyd, Jimmy Greshamm Lil & Rene, and Claude Huey.
