Soul Side of The Street, The [coll] – [Bacchus Archives]

Too much fun! Rare soul tracks from 1964-72, put together by Phoenix-area DJ/producer/songwriter Hadley Murrell back in the day. When a record starts off with “Funky to the Bone” and then hits you with “Soul Side of the Street”, you know you”re in for a good time. All tracks have great energy and classic rough edges. A1 has some cool chunky guitar. A4 is Motown-style and I can imagine a Four Tops version of it. B3 could be an early pleading James Brown cut. B4 is a sped-up version of the classic R&B tune “Night Train”, renamed “Soul Train” here. and B6 is a party-rocker reminiscent of “Tequila” with “sock it to me baby!” lyrics. The annoyingly repetitive background vocals on “Funky Freeze” are pretty much the only thing I don’t like on here.
