60s Soul




This is a personal selection as it takes me back to when I first became a fan of soul music in the 60s. I was fortunate to have a girlfriend living in the USA who would airmail me LPs that weren’t available here. Particularly Chuck Jackson.

I became interested in Arthur Alexander through tracks recorded by the Beatles (Anna), Rolling Stones (You Better Move On) and others by Gene Vincent & Johnny Kidd.

I heard other soul music through going to clubs and other venues in and around London. I was also fortunate to have a girl in our  local record shop who shared similar tastes in music as me and I had the opportunity to hear new  records as they arrived each week. I spent most Saturdays in the booths treating myself t o a wealth of new  sounds.

I hope you enjoy these samples…more to come!
