Sound Stage Seven Story – The Definitive 3 CD History Of The Nashville Based Southern Soul Label (3CD set)

CD (Item 137957) Sound Stage 7/Snapper (UK), Early 70s — Condition: Used
3 CDs
Out Of Stock


An excellent look at the mighty Sound Stage 7 label – a key imprint in the southern soul sound of the late 60s and 1970s, headed up by Nashville DJ and producer John Richbourg! The sound of the work here is a bit different than that from the Memphis and Muscle Shoals scenes – with some traces of country creeping into the mix, as well as a deeper, harder, sometimes bluesier approach to southern soul – one that emerged most strongly in the label's funkier sides of the early 70s! This massive package is easily the best look at the label we've seen so far – with a total of 78 tracks on 3CDs, as well as a 48 page booklet on the music! Titles include work by The Valentines, Willie Hobbs, Ann Sexton, Jackey Beavers, Geater Davis, Tears Of Joy, Margie Hendrix, Bobby King, Ella Washington, Sam Baker, Fenton Robinson, Joe Simon, Billy Mills, Gwen Davis, Roscoe Shelton, Jimmy Church, Allen Orange, Chuck Armstrong, Moody Scott, Ted Ford, The Soul Ambassadors, and John R himself!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
