The Love You Save (Cairo Records American Soul Music 1955-1972 Vol. 1)
Released: 5th October 2018
Cairo Records is a new label from Mississippi Records concentrating on American Soul Music.
The first in a six part series of compilations following a similar logic as Harry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music - only where Smith covered folk, blues, gospel and old timey, this compilation covers just American soul music recorded between 1955 and 1972. Many deep ballads and a few rockers. Features extensive 12 page liner notes with lots of photos. Cover has gold foil printing, and the records are housed in classy black sleeves.
Super fancy limited edition double LP not to be missed. The second volume, All Of This Goes Too Double, is also now available.
