Fantastic Voyage embarks on a new series, Soul City, exploring the music being produced in key centres in the early 1960s, when R&B was evolving into the style that was soon widely referred to as soul. And what better city to start in than Detroit? Compiled and annotated by soul music authority Clive Richardson, Soul City Detroit presents a selection of the recordings which served to establish the musical direction of the Motor City into the era which became known as soul .


This compilation brings you a generous selection of early recordings by Motown stars including The Contours, Mary Wells and The Marvelettes, plus early hits by Marvin Gaye and The Miracles, and a chance to hear the evolution of The Primettes into The Supremes and the birth of Martha & The Vandellas. Also presented are the bluesy stylings of Sammy Ward and Gino Parks, Joe Stubbs and Mack Rice, along with the gospel-inspired vocals of Wilson Pickett, both leading The Falcons on I Found a Love and on an early solo track. This is where the SOUL era began in the Motor City!
