Birth Of Soul - Los Angeles Special - VA- Kent Records CD

Birth Of Soul - Los Angeles Special - Various Artists 



Kent Records 

Format: Audio CD

Release Date 26th February 2021

Kent Records takes us all around the city of Los Angles recording studios during the early 60s era for this the 'The Birth Of Soul - Los Angeles Special' release.
A snippet of the release notes from Ady Croasdell follows below. 

The doo wop, gospel, blues, girl group and ballad scenes of Los Angeles fused to make it one major soul city.

Ace has very strong links with Los Angeles labels such as Modern, Combo, Flash, Flip, Mirwood, Money, Doré and Era, most of which had notable soul singles in their catalogues. Couple that with our many licensing deals of music made in that city and it is safe to say Los Angeles is just about our main area of expertise

We could have done a box set of the great music that came out of Los Angeles in these years – these are just two-dozen fascinating examples of how the city’s soul sound came about.
