Street Sounds from the Bay Area / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2011 collection of tracks from vaults of '70s Funk/Soul label Music City. Ray Dobard's Music City operation was at the heart of the Bay Area's black music scene from the '50s onwards. By the 1970s, his shop and studio were places where aspiring Funk, Soul and Jazz groups would go to attempt to find fame and fortune. Few did, but some great music was laid down, the best of which is here. The CD contains 17 tracks, 15 of which are previously unissued, and are a great view into a lost era of Bay Area music. Beat Goes On.
