V/A- Soulful Sounds From Soulville CD.  Soulville was a small indie label from that was heavily active in the mid 60's to late 70's and was based in Harrisburg, PA. Although Harrisburg has never been soul central, the label on the other hand most certainly was. And like so many regional labels in the pre-disco U.S., it supported a thriving local scene. Enter Bobby Fulton, the labels primary owner and taste maker he was a soul man supreme. Soulville and sister label Jaywalking were like a 100 other independent labels of the era, scraping together what money they could to record local talent, the only difference is that whoever Fulton seamed to touch were actually really good. And the same can be said for the bands that he playing in and wrote songs for. Fulton's classic "Standing on The Corner" is an off the wall Vietnam protest song beseeching Uncle Sam that was pretty instense for it’s time. And that song is included here and backed by 24 of the best outright hits from the Soulville and Jaywalking Records back catalog including songs from The Soulville All-Stars, Beverly Hills, The Continental Four, Ray Gant & The Arabian Knights, Bobby Fulton, Millie Mclaine, Lynn Martini & The Jolly Jax, Hank Sample, Watson & The Sherlocks, Donald Lee & The Executives, Hank Sample, Donald Lee Richardson, The Mastermen, The Sensational Cymbals, The Manigault Specials, Cha Cha Hogan and Wee Willie Mason. Stellar reissue here including archival photos and interesting liner notes by Bobby Fulton himself who couldn't make a go of Soulville back in the day, yet still feels a strong musical connection to these songs.
