SOUL UNLIMITED Radioshow 589

 // Reutlingen

Classic Soul in the mix plus new music from Michelle David & The Tru-Tones, Khrangbin, Kolonel Djafaar and more. Enjoy!

The first hour features a round of Soul 45s with some classics. This is followed by the compilation „Eccentric Soul: The Tragar & Note Labels“, which provides a profound overview of the releases of the Atlanta labels Tragar and Note Records. The labels were founded by Jesse Jones in the late 60s and early 70s respectively. He released numerous soul gems on his labels, which have since become highly sought-after and are now available on vinyl again with this compilation. A fabulous compilation, released by Numero Group in the excellent and highly recommended „Eccentric Soul“ series.
We then continue with current soul releases. Here I would particularly like to highlight the famous Spanish label Soul 4 Real, which regularly releases beautiful deep soul recordings from the 60s and 70s. Some of these were previously unreleased or are appearing on 7″ vinyl singles for the first time. The current release is „Take This Love Of Mine“, a song by the Staples, which was produced by Curtis Mayfield in 1976 and was previously only released as an LP track on the album „Pass It On“.
Another highlight for soul fans is the previously unreleased song „Love That One“ by Harvey Scales & The Seven Sounds, which has now been released as a 7″ single by the label Epsilon Records.
Michelle David is an American gospel & soul singer who has been living and working in the Netherlands for several years and has now released a new album with her band The Tru-Tones. „Brothers & Sisters“ is a solid and all-round successful soul album that draws its inspiration from the soul of the late 60s. The band manages to transfer this into the present day without sounding too retro.
After that, they move away from the pure soul sound towards more experimental yet soulful sounds. Khruangbin have already become well known in recent years. Their sound, which fuses dub, psychedelic soul and Far Eastern vibes, sounds great and has quickly found many fans. It is very rare for artists featured here to be so successful that a new album enters the German album charts at number 2 in the first week. Khrangbin have achieved this with their new album „A La Sala“. Musically, they didn’t experiment with the new album and simply refined their tried and tested concept even further. I think the result still sounds very exciting!
Kolonel Djafaar, a band from Antwerp, is not quite as relaxed. Afrobeat, ethio-jazz and psychedelic rock sounds come together here to create a highly interesting musical melange. Sometimes it sounds a little cinematic, but the songs are always very lively and pulsating. The band’s second album, „Getaway“, has been released on the Batov Records label and fits in perfectly with the label’s repertoire. Have fun listening to it!
