Various Artists - Texas Soul '68 (Vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price €25,00
Tax included.


This is the fifth LP in a series on Afro-American music in the Lone Star state covering the year of 1968. By now soul music is fully in the ascendant, with some of the tracks getting funkier and funkier - no Blues or R & B any more. So this album continues the tradition of mixing up big star artists with lesser known singers - plenty of uptempo dancers and a few delicious ballads for a change of pace.

 



This is almost certainly the most consistent various artist compilation I've ever listened to. Every single one of these tracks is good, and yet none of them are outstanding tunes. It really is weird—we're talking 16 tracks and 45 minutes of music—and yet none of it is boring, nor exceptionally awesome. It's all just solidly, dependably good. Nothing is annoying, nothing is super catchy and delicious.
