The “5” Royales
The Harbingers of Soul

Rhythm and Blues legends the 5 Royales were incredibly renowned in the 50's and into the 60's. Bringing gospel and soul inspired harmonies into the mix they recorded some treasured sides for the King and Home of the Blues stables. This album is a passionately compiled collection of all their most highly regarded numbers and is pressed on quality heavy wax with liner notes from one J. Ridley esq.

The Birth of Funk

This new compilation on History of Soul covers the formative years of funk music in the first half of the 20th century, originally played by jazz musicians in New Orleans who would hit the clubs and play something more downbeat and dirty after wowing the crowds with their hot jazz of an evening. You've got all sorts on here from classics like Earl King and James Brown to more obscure crate-digging gems like The Turquinettes and Porgy & the Polka Dots.
