Various Artists - Soul Power '68 (RSD 2022)

An exclusive RSD release on 140g purple colour vinyl from Trojan Records. This special collection is a mirror of recently discovered Doctor Bird Records tape of a previously unissued compilation album - ‘Soul Power’. With Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle catalogue having been mercilessly plundered over the past few decades, you would be forgiven for thinking that precious little of the legendary producer’s work currently remains unavailable. This sensational collection of long lost rock steady, proto reggae and soul tracks from 1968 demonstrates otherwise. Featuring Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, The Conquerors, The Melodians and many more. Track list Vinyl: LP 1 Side A 1. IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR - The Silvertones 2.
