Our regular Soul Source catch up of the month's new releases from Ace records...
The great singer/songwriter's essential Sounds of Memphis 70s recordings.
New Breed R&B - Saturday Night Special
New Breed R&B
Various Artists (New Breed R&B)
The master tapes reveal more great New Breed R&B dance exclusives – fully augmented by rare records and elusive CD offerings from the past.
Dirty Work Going On - Kent & Modern Records Blues Into The 60s Vol 1
Various Artists (Kent/ Modern)
The blues didn’t stop with the end of the 50s and, as soul ruled the charts, the grittier end of black music was well represented by the nine artists on this compilation.
Saint Etienne Present Songs For The Fountain Coffee Room
Various Artists (Saint Etienne)
This is the soundtrack for a bar in mid-70s Los Angeles, the kind of place where Warren Beatty and Julie Christie might meet in the afternoon for a secret rendezvous. There’s a high quotient of blue-eyed soul, some airy R&B and the odd singer-songwriter. The pace is strictly mid-tempo; it’s too warm for anything faster.
Girls With Guitars Know Why!
Various Artists (Girls With Guitars)
“It always bothered me when people would say, ‘You’re not bad for girls’. What does that mean, we can’t play? We would prove them wrong.” Cindy Wilhelmi, Girls Take Over
