Audio: Lee Anthony and Egon talk True Soul on WNYC’s Soundcheck

Now-Again | Jul. 12, 2011 | News |

Lee Anthony and Egon sat in on WNYC’s Soundcheck today. From the WNYC website:

“If you were a soul and funk musician living in Little Rock, Arkansas, during the 1960s and ‘70s, there was one guy you needed to know: Lee Anthony. He opened Little Rock’s first black-owned record store, and later, launched a record label called True Soul Records. That label is the subject of a new two-volume compilation of rare funk and soul songs called “True Soul: Deep Sounds From the Left of Stax.” Joining us to talk about the new release is Lee Anthony himself, along with Eothen Alapatt of Now Again records, which released the new set.”

    Hello !
    I’m doing some research about Larry Davis and Calvin Leavy and what they did at True Soul.
    Is there any possibility to have a complete list of the unissued stuff with complete details ?
    And why not issue a complete cd ?
    It would be nice to publish the story of the True Soul label
    (i’m thinking of British mag “Blues & Rhythm” or the French one,more Soul oriented,”Soul Bag” ?
    Best regards.
