Ships In 2/3 Days
This is another fascinating entry in Jasmine'€™s early roots of soul series, a superb 28-track collection full of excellent and surprising tracks from the likes of The Van Dykes, The Drifters, Ben E King, Ray Charles and Solomon Burke.

However, certain record labels also played an important role, and it isn'€™t just Detroit'€™s Berry Gordy who could take all the credit as over in New York - Ahmet Ertegun and Herb Abramson et al were also on a mission.
