Wax Wonders :: Detroit Soul, Part 1

The amount of superb soul records (from the obscure to the massive hits) that were waxed in Detroit is a near bottomless well of greatness. Following the lead of Berry Gordy's Motown empire, dozens of young artists latched on to the label's independent spirit, using their talents to write, record, arrange, produce and perform...all with the hopes of emulating Motown's worldwide success.

Welcome to Detroit Soul, Part 1. This series is in no way chronological; it's simply a celebration of this wonderful music that is far too unknown outside of the circles of fanaticism.
