Soul Street: The Funky Side Of Northern Soul
Eclectic blend borrows its name from our title track “Soul Street” by Ricky Allen, a super rare cut written and produced by Mel London and released to absolutely no acclaim on his Chicago based Tam-Boo label circa 1968. Allen is no stranger to the rare soul scene and is joined here by a number of familiar faces such as our southern soulsters Alder Ray Black and Eddie Bo and our hit artists Betty Harris, Tina Turner and Aaron Neville. Special attention must go to Josephine Taylor and Alvin Cash both of whom contribute tracks, that incredibly, were unreleased at the time of recording! But our star turn has to be Lenny McDaniel who makes his compilation debut with the furious dancer “Something Out Of Nothing” recorded with The New Era in 1968 for Joe Banashak’s Seven B label. Everything happens on Soul Street.
