Sultans Of Soul

CD (Item 613332) Wind Hit, Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.50 13

A nice collection of rare soul – a variety of soulful gems from as far back as the late 60s, spanning the 70s and stepping into 80s – all produced by Hadley Murrell! Murrell was a regional resource for all things soul in the Phoenix scene during the 70s, but we learned a lot more about him from this set. For one, he operated in LA for time, plus we can see just diverse and adaptable his production work and songwriting is! The tracks here are rooted in raw soul, but from there it branches out into laidback harmony laden-numbers, driving psych soul, funk, lush string-accented groovers and more. There's some names here we recognize and others that's are new to us – and it's strong stuff all the way through! 18 tracks in all: "Shakedown" and "The Wine Is Bitter, But The Grapes Are Sweet" by Black Ice, "The One Who's Hurting (Is You)" by Roy & The Dewdrops, "I Like What You're Doing" and There's One One Else" by Eddie Horan", "I'm A Winner" by Smoked Sugar, "Ain't That What You Want" by Liquid Blue, "I Am Somebody" and "Mama Told Me To Watch Out" by Freddi-Henchi & The Soulsetters, "You Ought To Be With Me" by Carl Weathers (yep. . .Apollo Creed/Action Jackson himself!), "Larry, Move Your Hand" by Penguin Feet & The Tar Drop Kid and more. (Nice, hardbound book-like package full of notes & photos, too!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
