Various Artists: The Skippy White Story: Boston Soul 1961-1967 (Various Artists)

1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. This compilation pays tribute to the soul music of Boston that was originally captured on tape by legendary Boston record store owner turned label owner and curator, Skippy White. This release is a labor of love for all involved in compiling it, especially Eli Paperboy Reed. In addition to being a songwriter and performer, Eli is an avid record collector, especially of obscure R&B, soul and gospel 45s from the early 1960s. Many of the recordings on this compilation are from Eli's private collection of 45s and acetates. Extensive liner notes in the package written by Peter Guralnick, Peter Wolf and Eli Paperboy Reed & Noah Schaffer provide the context for the music, the time, and the impact that Skippy White, his stores and the music he discovered and released on his own labels have had on those who frequented his stores, loved the music he released and were influenced by it all. Includes songs from The Precisions, Earl Lett. Junior Washington and the Lynn Harmonizers among others. It serves as the perfect introduction to Boston Soul.

  2. Sammy and the Del-Lards - Sleepwalk
  3. The Precisions - What Would You Do
  4. Earl Lett - Do the Thing
