The "5" Royales were a relatively unheralded, but significant, link between early R&B and early soul in their combination of doo wop, jump blues, and gospel styles. Their commercial success was relatively modest – they had seven Top Ten R&B hits in the 1950s, most recorded in the span of little over a year between late 1952 and late 1953. A few of their singles would prove extremely popular in cover versions by other artists, though – James Brown and Aretha Franklin tore it up with "Think," Ray Charles covered "Tell the Truth," and the Shirelles (and later the Mamas & the Papas) had pop success with "Dedicated to the One I Love." .

Black music historians concur that North Carolina's 5 Royales were the first-ever Soul group. Their blend of secular harmony and Gospel fire influenced and paved the way for such 60s giants as the Temptations & James Brown. Here, for the first time on one CD, are all the group's seminal early '50s recordings for Apollo Records on New York, including their rare early gospel sides as the Royal Sons Quintet.

By 1960, the sound of black popular music had turned away from a driving, largely uptempo rhythm and blues towards a more emotionally poignant style described at the time as secularised gospel. The term soul popped up here and there, but only became common parlance after Ray Charles's I Believe To My Soul was released at the end of 1959. This compilation, part of the History of Soul series, brings together the finest tunes before soul went mainstream, accompanied by a 28-page booklet exploring the historical background from the years 1959 and 1960.

In the North of England in the early 1970s, a very strange musical phenomenon evolved. Club-going Mods who loved soul music were either bored with the output of Tamla Motown or simply hungry for more music in a similar vein. So club DJs went out hunting for a new supply of soul music. They found it in the form of singles released by smaller American record labels, like Ric-Tic, Golden World, Okeh, Mirwood, Shout and dozens more. The movement came to be known as Northern Soul and though it persists in a nostalgic form today it had its heyday in the mid to late 1970s. All of that excitement and some of the rarest records can be found on this comprehensive collection.

This wonderful four-disc, 105-track box of postwar Afro-American gospel releases from the 1940s and 1950s was compiled by record collector and gospel historian Opal Louis Nations, and it perfectly captures what was surely a golden age for black gospel. Gospel as we now know it emerged in the South in the early '30s, an outgrowth of the right to assemble and the advent of gospel songwriters like Thomas A. Dorsey (who had sung previously in the secular arena as Georgia Tom), who brought the blues to church, tossed in some ragtime piano rhythms, and almost single-handedly created the genre to the point that his compositions were simply known as "Dorseys.
