Eerste deel van deze geweldige Ace serie.
‘Of all the many great compilations put out by ACE/KENT, I regard The Birth Of Soul as one that really can be truly described as “essential”, for it represents a living musical document of black American music and its equally fascinating history and development. Compiled with skill and insight by Trevor Churchill and Adrian Croasdell, it is not only an imaginative collection of sides, but one that also shows that “Soul” didn’t just “happen”, but was a gradual process of evolution as the music of black America moved from its R&B tradition with its nostalgic rural roots, into the newly growing freedom of cultural expression that was to be found and explored in the urban centres. ‘
