More Info

In the US, Black American artists had begun to make inroads into mainstream charts since the beginning of the decade, and many of the tracks here represent part of that precious changeover period between what was then termed R&B and Soul. The common factors were dance ability and emotional content, and it was these elements that caught the ear of British listeners. Half of the tracks on this selection of highly collectable tracks did actually gain UK record releases and many did get some radio play if you knew where to listen. This led directly to a nascent club scene that was initially centred in the South East of the UK, and more specifically London with its Soho venues like The Scene and The Flamingo and certain key record import shops.
