Various Artists - American Soul Music 1955-1972: The Truth Is A Lie
Third installment of one of the most stunningly good compilations we've ever encountered. Glorious American soul music, both ballads and rockers; in gold-foiled sleeves, with twelve pages of notes.
Mississippi about its new imprint Cairo: ‘It’s just the deepest soul music. It’s not all obscurities either- there’s some straight up pop hits. The idea is to present records that will give people solace in their darkest hour when they are alone, or you can throw on with practically anyone in the room and everyone will dig it. You can play these records for your parents or for the most out there tripper and all will be into it… Each release is in a VERY small edition… These are the dream records that Mississippi always wanted to put out.’
