The ultimate soul collection on ten individual CDs' the first five are ready now! The soundtrack to the 1960s! 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.

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.

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!
