Various - Sweet Soul Music: Look Out! We Got Soul - Sampler Sweet Soul Music (CD)

1-CD-Album DigiPac with 16-page booklet, 10 tracks, playing time: 28:07.


Limited edition low budget sampler, the perfect introduction to our 'Sweet Soul Music' series! Ten fabulous soul tracks from 1961 to 1970, in chronological order. DigiPac with full-color booklet and photos. ' Here comes the eagerly anticipated sequel to our first five volumes of 'Sweet Soul Music,' as well as the highly acclaimed, award-winning R&B series 'Blowin' The Fuse.' This is ehe sound that influences musicians who weren't even born when it came out, like Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone! All the greatest and most influential soul hits of the 1960s, including some surprisingly hard-to-find selections! Every song is the original version. The ultimate soul collection spread across ten individual CDs! The soul-searing soundtrack to the 1960s! Massive, beautifully illustrated booklets with detailed notes, incredible vintage photos, and ephemera.

Over the course of ten spectacular years, R&B morphed into soul music with a side order of funk, and became the soundtrack to a social revolution. The riveting story of that incredible decade 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 the extra mile... and then some, licensing classic recordings from virtually every record label at the epicenter of '60s soul to compile the greatest hits with the finest sound quality.

The second five volumes, available now, cover the years 1966-1970. Though gospel remained the bedrock of soul music, the sound was transforming fast, thanks to Motown, Stax, the regional innovations of Chicago, New Orleans, and Muscle Shoals, and the funk revolution, led by James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone. The civil rights and antiwar movements were now rolling full speed ahead, and the messages at the heart of the music were often as powerful and invigorating as the grooves themselves. The second half of this incredible story is just as fascinating as the first. 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 general acclaim. The first five volumes of 'Sweet Soul Music' earned the same enthusiastic response. Now here come the other five jam-packed volumes of 'Sweet Soul Music,' compiled with love by Dave 'Daddy Cool' Booth.

Hits' 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!
