Maggtapp

“Because you’re you” /“Love I lost”

Label: The Preservation Project – Catalog: PP011 – Release Date: 30th July 2021 – Format: 7′

We are back with two Soul sides for you for our 11th regular 7″ release.

Both are a perfect fit for the Soul scene. Side A features Maggtapp’s previously unreleased “Because You’re You.” This is a strong female vox lead sublime Modern Soul groover. It features a steady beat and a spacious arrangement – just drums, bass, electric piano, and organ – that lets the vocals float on top of it. It definitely could be a demo or a temporary mix down, as it could be a bit more fleshed out, but it is really quite good as is.

The Originals

‘Young train” / “Young Ideas” (MD Records)

Released in 1973 on a Motown Promotional only release to support the Mayoral election campaign of Coleman Young. The Originals consisted of C.P.Spencer, F.Gorman, W.Gaines and H.Dixon were known as Motown’s best kept secret and never really had the success they should have. In the third of the series, we move to 1973 Detroit. But to really appreciate the story of this release we first need to step back to 1969 when Richard Austin ran for Mayor of Detroit. This was a turning point for the city although Richard Austin was defeated at the general election it was becoming clear that the populace of Detroit wanted change.

Southern And Deep Soul From Louisiana

Label: Kent Catalog: – CDKEND 501 – Release Date: 28th May 2021 – Format: CD

South-West Louisiana is rightly famous for its homegrown music, Cajun, and its black Creole cousin, Zydeco. There is a romanticism to the area with its exotically named towns and a feeling that it has been cut off from the world. Yet, however much it may seem removed from America, it is still a part of it. Since the birth of the car, Route 90 and then the Interstate 10 have connected New Orleans, Louisiana and Houston, Texas, running straight through the region, opening it up to the world. The local industry that grew up to record the indigenous music was perfectly placed to document local versions of country, blues, funk, soul and pop, as musicians and live bands came through to play in the most important towns.

Various Artists (Vietnam Soul)

Label: Kent – Catalog: CDKEND 474 – Release Date: 28th May 2021 – Format: CD

This month sees the release of the last in Kent’s trilogy spotlighting black America’s involvement in the Vietnam war. It’s been a long wait but we feel that the 23 tracks here more than uphold the high standard of its predecessors – “A Soldier’s Sad Story” (CDKEND 226) and “Does Anybody Know I’m Here” (CDKEND 245).
