The Soulful Kinda Music Guide to Memphis, New Orleans and the Southern States - Dave Rimmer.
Southern soul is a genre within the broad spectrum of soul music that has devotees around the world. This book covers the labels and artists of Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and the Carolinas. Many artists had long careers, recording regularly, but never quite making it to the top and regularly label hopping over a thirty year career. These little labels and the big players form the backbone of the book and bring together one of the most complete discographies of the area (new paperback, 316 pages).
