V.A. 'Sweet Soul Music 1962'  CD


‘28 Scorching Classics’ superb compilation series in very nice packaging with massive booklet

All the greatest and most influential hits as R&B became Soul in the 1960s! All original versions! The ultimate soul collection on ten individual CDs… Massive booklets with detailed notes, incredible photos, and ephemera. It was a turbulent era: Over the course of ten years, R&B became soul music, and soul music became the soundtrack to a social revolution known throughout the world as Civil Rights. The story of those ten incredible years is told in full for the first time on Bear Family's 'Sweet Soul Music' series. Some record companies have compiled anthologies from their own vaults but Bear Family has gone to every record company… great and small… in search of the greatest music and the finest sound quality. The first five volumes cover the years 1961-1965. The first rumblings of civil rights and soul music were being heard. Black music was rediscovering its gospel roots and inalienable soul. It's an incredible story that plays out before your eyes and ears as you listen to the music and read the in-depth commentary by Colin Escott and Bill Dahl. The prelude to this series, 'Blowin' The Fuse,' covered R&B from 1945-1960. It garnered awards and general acclaim. It was hailed as definitive. Now here comes the sequel. Compiled with love by Dave 'Daddy Cool' Booth. Hits? Too many to mention. See the track listing!
