Texas Soul 68'
This is the fifth LP in our highly regarded series on Afro-American music in the Lone Star state covering the year of 1968. By now soul music is fully in the ascendant, with some of the tracks getting funkier and funkier – no Blues or R & B any more. So this album continues the tradition of mixing up big star artists with lesser known singers – plenty of uptempo dancers and a few delicious ballads for a change of pace. Definitely the best of Texas 1968! SIDE 1 1. Grab Your Clothes (And Get On Out) – Minnie Epperson 2. Today’s Man – Mark Putney 3. Cold Cold World – Tommy Jackson 4.
