Various - Sweet Soul Music: 25 Scorching Classics From 1972

1-CD Digipak (6-plated) with 76-page booklet, 26 tracks. Total playing time approx. 85 mns.

• The eagerly anticipated finale to Bear Family's earlier ‘Sweet Soul Music’ volumes, and the award-winning 'Blowin' The Fuse' R&B series.
• Taken together, these classic series tell the story of R&B-Soul-Funk from 1945-1975, year-by-year, song-by-song. These are the records that made a difference. A HUGE difference!
• This is the sound that still influences today’s R&B and Soul and Rap, plus musicians like Amy Winehouse and Janelle Monae and revivalists like James Hunter, who weren’t even born when these records came out!
• All the greatest and most influential soul-funk hits of the early 1970s, including some surprisingly hard-to-find selections! Every song is the original version, painstakingly remastered for finest sound!
• Massive, beautifully illustrated booklets with detailed notes, incredible vintage photos, and ephemera.
• But, sadly, the story ends here. The last track, Boogie Fever, heralds the dawn of Disco.

As Soul morphed into Funk, it became the soundtrack to a social and musical revolution. The riveting story of the 1960s in Soul music was told in full for the first time on Bear Family's earlier 'Sweet Soul Music' volumes. Now the story continues to our conclusion in 1975. Some record companies have compiled anthologies from their own vaults, but Bear Family has gone the extra mile... and then some, licensing classic recordings from EVERY record label at the epicenter of ‘70s soul and funk to arrive at the ultimate collection of greatest hits and finest performances from the era’s biggest stars and neglected heroes.

The final five volumes, available now, cover the years 1971-1975. The music was changing rapidly thanks to Motown, Stax, Muscle Shoals, and the funk revolution, led by James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone. The messages at the heart of the music were often as powerful and incendiary as the grooves themselves. Bill Dahl’s track-by-track commentary provides extensive biographical info on every artist on every disc.

The prelude to this series, 'Blowin' The Fuse,' definitively covered the history of R&B from 1945- 1960, garnering awards and wide acclaim. The first ten volumes of ‘Sweet Soul Music’ earned the same enthusiastic response. Now here comes the final installment of ‘Sweet Soul Music,’ compiled with love by Dave 'Daddy Cool' Booth.

Hits? W-A-Y too many to mention! Consult the track listing!

Sweet Soul Music

It was a tumultuous era in African American music and culture. The rapid evolution of the music mirrored the changing social climate. Everything seemed to be in play. Nothing was as it was. Through it all, it seemed as if every week yielded another batch of must-have singles.

This series follows on from Bear Family's award-winning 'Blowin' The Fuse' series that documented R&B from 1945 until 1960. Taking the story from 1961 until 1970, we'll witness the change from R&B to what became known as Soul Music.

Every disc is in rough chronological order based on release dates rather than chart peak. I attempted to adhere to a policy of one song per artist per year. Also, whenever good stereo was available, I used that in preference to mono, although I'm well aware that the original singles were in mono. Unfortunately, licensing restrictions meant that several artists, notably Sam Cooke and Ray Charles, were unavailable to us, but there is such a wealth of great music from this decade that they are hardly missed. I also tried to ensure that several important R&B labels, such as Motown and Atlantic, were not over-represented. So a few of your favorite songs from this era might be missing… but only a few.

Once again, I'd like to acknowledge my debt to the files of 'Billboard' and 'Cashbox'magazines, as well as Joel Whitburn's Top R&B Singles.Without them, compilations like these would be almost impossible.

Now let's get down with it!
