Classic soul that played big on LA
's Hispanic East Side – with a range of tracks that spans the fifties, sixties, and seventies! The interesting thing about this series is that the music is less from LA
, than it is music that played big in LA
– so you get a range of tracks that includes midwestern soul like "I Fooled You This Time" by Gene Chandler, "Tell Him" by Patti Drew, "Forever" by The Marvelettes, and "I'm Sorry" by Bo Diddley – mixed with west coast soul like "It's Got To Be Mellow" by Leon Haywood, "Tell Her She's Lovely" by El Chicano, "Catch You On The Rebound" by Brenton Wood, "Land
Of 1000 Dances" by Cannibal & The Headhunters, and "Making Ends Meet" by Thee Midnighters. 16 tracks in all – and some nice notes on the scene!
