Soulful Kinda Music Guide to Detroit Soul. A Discography of the Motor City - Dave Rimmer
In the 1950s Detroit was a jazz city, but by the dawn of the sixties soul music was the thing. The city will always be known as the home of the most successful record business ever built and owned by an African-American that was Berry Gordy Jr, and his Motown empire. But there was much more to the Motor City. For every successful label or artist there were a hundred others who, whilst producing records just as good as the hits, failed to make it. Author Dave Rimmer addresses this with his comprehensive cataloguing of minor labels and single artist recordings (paperback, new).
