Anybody here know about this series?

Various compilations of pretty much unknown soul stuff from the mid to late 60's. I got two of these and this stuff is amazing.

i keep seeing them around...what ones do you have? what one's are the best?

they have no goddam track listings or any info at all on the covers, which is retarded.

i think i'll pick up one or two soon

the capsoul volume is great. got me to pick up bill moss' "number one" 45 right after i heard it on cd at a friends house. can't get enough of that song!

are these on vinyl as well? i've only been seeing the cds around

I got two of them

The Deep City Label and The Young Disciples

Both those are really good, soulful ballads and funky grooves. They are done on vinyl, and yeah it totally sucks they dont have the track listing on the cover. That said this stuff is worth checking out.

I've been curious about these - thanks for the info. If anyone has a bunch of them, or all, tell us your favorites so I can start somewhere.

i have/had capsoul, abc's of kid soul, deep city label, the mack label, a few others. all are worth the price, some better than others naturally. one of the guys girlfriends works (or at least worked) at inner town pub and they have capsoul on the jukebox.

abc's of kid soul

i want all the original records that appear on this one.
Posted: Feb 27, 2009 3:27 pm
i've got --

good god! a gospel funk hymnal
the capsoul label
cult cargo: belize city boil up

like/love them all. will get more someday.

numero group's website says they release some, but not all, on vinyl. i've only ever seen the cds. i agree that having no track listings sucks.

belize boil up is good too, better than the bahamanian one. the gospel funk hymnal was ok but not as good as the sunday morning cable access church broadcasts from the south side. i love watching those, as soon as they stop with the music and get back to preaching i turn to another church. it helps that there are about 12 different churches broadcasting a total of about 40 hours.

the only cd release i have is the capsoul one.
abc's of kid soul might be my favorite.

I have 2/3 of them, as well as a few Numero Group releases such as the really good Titan Records "This Is Pop" collection....

my favorite E.S. releases are
Deep City Label
Outskirts of Deep City
Brotherman Soundtrack
Prix Label
Soul Messages From Dimona

soul messages from dimona was ok but i'd really like to read a book about that whole journey. sounded tremendously fucked up. prix label one is good too. i really want to get the "this is pop" comp but i've got to wait a bit...

you really are the argument for home schooling aren't you.
Posted: Apr 18, 2009 8:55 pm
any of y'all check out Eccentric Soul: The Tragar & Note Labels?
Owned by the same guy, those are the only soul labels out of Atlanta with any significant output, but woefully mismanaged into obscurity. Incredibly obscure... good stuff, too, a nice deep soul number from Franciene Thomas "Too Beautiful To Be Good." I wrote about it for Stomp and Stammer.

i teach universities so that's a moot point; even an unemployed, ill-educated rube like you shd grasp that. make yer insults at least within an arena of pertinence. ok?

sit in my shakespeare seminar monday morning: i'll have the dominicans translate my lecture into recognizable ideas for you. king lear.

then, in an effort to appear less creepy, i posted about it to an internet music forum.

you stay classy, bad touch baker.
