The revitalized West Midlands-based SOUL JUNCTION LABEL is currently working on creating a fab new web site to spread the word about its excellent real soul product. In the meantime to whet your appetite, here’s a rundown of their current, small but perfectly formed soul catalogue –which includes 7″ singles, CDs and vinyl albums… proper soul music for proper soul fans!
At present the label can offer eight great 7″ vinyl singles. The moment’s big one is ‘Hold On He’s Coming’ from Detroit gospel star MIKE JEMISON. The message is inspirational and the tight, dance beats give it huge crossover potential. There are other releases on NATURAL IMPULSE, AUDIO, LOU WILSON and TODAY’S PEOPLE and BILL SPOON. The JESSE JAMES 45, ‘I Feel Your Love Changing’ sold out in weeks- there’s a message there!
On CD, the label can offer THE FALCONS ‘Good , Good Feelings’ and DUANE WILLIAMS’ ‘These Songs Are For You’ – the latter currently hugely popular on the rare groove scene with the lead track, ‘Yes My Love Is Real’ also available as a vinyl 45.
The label’s other big album is ‘The Royal Sessions’ from DAVID HUDSON. Recorded over 20 years ago in Memphis with WILLIE MITCHELL, the eight tracker has lain neglected for too long. Now, it can be enjoyed in the format it was intended for – vinyl… and there’s a vinyl single too, ‘(Girl I’m Coming Home To) Something Good.’
Watch out for SJF reviews very soon and, of course, we’ll let you know when the SOUL JUNCTION web site is live.
