Various - The Truth Is A Lie: American Soul Music 2xLP [Cairo Records]

Regular price $26.00

Stunning compilation of great soul songs. The third part in a series of compilations following a similar logic as Harry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music - only where Smith covered folk, blues, gospel and old timey, this compilation covers just American soul music recorded between 1962 and 1975. Many deep ballads and a few rockers. Features extensive 12 page liner notes with lots of photos. Cover has gold foil printing, and the records are housed in classy black sleeves. Super fancy limited edition double LP not to be missed!
