In the early 1960s the music once known as rhythm and blues began
to be proudly referred to as ‘soul’ music, as in heartfelt and genuine –
though it was also a fact that most of the great stars of soul had
originally learned their craft singing in gospel choirs. While in the 1950s
songs by black artists often had to be covered by white artists like Elvis
Presley in order to get radio airplay, within the space of a few years
black artists started becoming more visible, and gaining popularity with
a massive new audience of young white teenagers. The soundtrack of
this new decade was as likely to consist of Motown or Atlantic hits as it
was to be folky protest songs like We Shall Overcome. Even a cursory
glance down the list of artists present on this triple CD set should
convince you that – as an introduction to 1960s soul music – you’d be
hard pressed to find a better cross-section of that decade’s amazing
display of sheer talent than that on offer here, among them being
James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Jackie Wilson, the Isley
Brothers or Wilson Pickett. It’s an impressive roster
