Various - Eccentric Soul - Local Customs: Downriver Revival



Local Customs Downriver Revival
Various - Local Customs: Downriver Revival
(CD+DVD/2xLP+DVD) Numero Group NUM026, 2009-03-16

Between 1967 and 1981 Detroit's downriver neighbor Ecorse, MI had its very own Moe Asch. Set up in a basement on 18th Avenue, Felton Williams chronicled the musical lives of Ecorse's citizens and issued them on the Solid Rock, Cass, Compose, and Revival labels. We've compiled 24 of Williams' most fascinating recordings, covering gospel, group soul, garage-punk, northern, jazz, and funk.
