Errol's Pick

"This Old Soul of Mine: Soul Chronology 2" is a 2-CD set that connects the dots between jazz, blues and gospel and shows us how they merged and gave birth to soul music. It features 57 tracks by big names like Ray Charles and the Staple Singers as well as less familiar artists like The Davis Sisters and Reverend Utah Smith. It's accompanied by an informative 30-page booklet that includes biographical information on all the artists on the collection. For more info on the compilation, go to History Of Soul Records External Site. You can buy "This Old Soul of Mine" at Amazon External Site.
