A great document of a soul scene that we know little about – but are finding that we love! This 27 track package offers up a rich array of underground soul from 60s Virginia – a wealth of great work recorded by obscure groups and singers who labored in the hinterland between DC and the Carolinas, but who never made it big! There's a really rough feel to a lot of the work – coming across with almost a Birth Of Soul feel at times – in a style that seems to mix the best parts of southern deep soul with the sweetest sides of the east coast approach, in modes that almost seem to hint at New York uptown at times. The package features some well-written notes – notes that are even honest when they don't have anything to say about a specific
record – and the set list features a load of gems that include "Front Page Love" by Bee Gee Stans, "Jump Up & Down (part 1)" by Mark IV Wilson, "Thru The Lonely Years" by Stacy Henry & The Majestics, "It Happen On A Tuesday" by The Honey Bees, "Does She Love Me" by The DC Magnatones, "Rescue Me" by Ida Sands, "I'm Going To Outfit You Baby" by Barbara Stant, "This Is Your Day" by Soul Duo, and "Good Good Lovin" by Little Caesar & The Euterpeans.
