Searching for Soul? You just hit the jackpot in this killer set that's filled with Michigan-recorded gems that go way beyond the shadows of Motown!

The sound here is madly tripped out throughout. A blend of funky 45 rhythms with more interesting influences from the spreading sprawl of the Michigan soul underground of the 60s and 70s. Groups who recorded not just in Detroit, but also other cities that were taking the motor city groove and turning it on in whole new ways.

Overall, there's an approach here that reminds us of Westbound Funk at its best. A blend of psychedelic influences, jazz phrasing, and deeper soul that echo nicely together in most of the collection's tracks. Filled with great tunes we'd never heard before.
