Description

You are viewing the most-wanted, least seen of all Soul compilation albums, the fabled UK Columbia 1965 tribute to Chicago Soul and the legendary Okeh label "CHARTBUSTERS U.S.A"

14 tracks by the then mostly unknown on British airwaves, Walter Jackson, Ted Taylor, Vibrations, Billy Butler and the Chanters, Artistics and the already idolized Major Lance.. check out the back cover scan to reveal that breathtaking track listing.
With no USA counterpart, this was however an album that sold virtually nothing upon release; unless you really were very "hip" those artist's names would have meant nothing to ,most people couple with Columbia's amazingly poor marketing nevr mentioned the word Soul or R&B on the front cover. The back cover is only marginally more information, to the style of what you expect if you played it..

Thus an unparalleled album passed everybody by, for a fate of early deletion and extremely rarity..

I feel privileged today to be able to offer, a pristine copy of this insanely elusive LP. Our first flawless copy in memory..

Flawless vinyl, two perfect labels, housed in original EMI rice-paper lined "Emitex" inner sleeve. Laminated flipback cover front and back are unblemished..
