Following in the celebrated footsteps of our Blues and Gospel Discographies, comes those much anticipated sibling triplets; The Soul Discography Volumes 1, 2 and 3.Employing the same session-based format as our Blues and Gospel Discographies, the format is set in the standard discographical layout, alphabetical by artist, chronologically by session/matrix number, listing personnel details, unissued titles and original releases.
The details of the vast world of recorded soul music is spread over almost 1600 pages in three volumes.The golden window of 1960 to 1980 is happily violated wherever necessary. A granddaddy clause is granted for those with proto-soul roots from the 50s and a lifetime residency for the brave and faithful who continued their careers past the goalposts, right up until the present time.
The first volume covering artists from A to F is available now, (536 pages, large format (8.5" X 11") Volume 2 and three will be published as soon as the final tweaking is done tweaked.
