New York Soul 67
Despite intense competition from the often frenetic pace of sessions in Chicago, Detroit and Los Angeles, it was still New York that retained the crown of holding the most Afro-American recording dates and 45 releases in the US in 1967. The many studios in the city were always busy, cutting a wide range of styles from proto-funk to the gentlest of group sounds, from Motownesque pop through to the deepest of gospel based varieties. Whatever the approach, New York tried it all and labels both large and tiny hustled sales from willing punters and jukeboxes. This LP reflects all of this broad based musical activity, showcasing both thumping dance music and tender ballads. But whatever the genre you can be sure that it all has 100% SOUL!
