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 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 Eothan Alapatt of Now Again records, which released the set.
This is an encore edition of Soundcheck.
