V/A, New Orleans Soul: The Original Sound of New Orleans Soul 1966-76 (2014)
This is the week’s brand new vinyl purchase – and I haven’t yet played it all the way through but it is fantastic. I know that because I know most of the names on here and some of the tracks already, and I gave it a bit of a spin during last night’s DJ set at The Old Bailey – these sorts of comps are great for when you’ve got to play records for six or seven hours in a bar. You have to have some compilations just to cut down on the number of records you carry – in the case of this one I reckon it’s a must-have for at-home listening anyway. So good.
Sample Track: Don’t Pity Me (Curly Moore)
