              Delta Swamp Rock is an interstate southern road-trip through the United States of America where country, rock and soul met at the crossroads - an exploration of the musical and cultural links between the cities of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and Nashville in the 1960s and 70s.

              At the start of the 1970s, a new type of music emerged out of the southern states of Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Southern rock, the creation of young blue-collar white Americans, blended rock, soul, country and blues music together to present a new vision of the south – a post-civil rights southern identity complete with a celebration of the regions natural landscape and its way of life.

              The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd epitomised the definitive southern rock groups – a mixture of blues-rock and country with a southern rebelliousness and attitude. Unfortunately both The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd were to be struck by tragedy, which would affect the movement’s rise and fall.

              The backstory to southern rock is the fact that a number of the people involved in its creation had been central to the production of southern soul music in the 1960s mainly in Memphis, Tennessee, and the small town of Muscle Shoals (population around 10,000) deep within the bible-belt, liquor-free, deeply segregated state of Alabama, creating 100s of R&B hits on an almost daily basis.

              Here in Muscle Shoals, with its proximity to Memphis and Nashville, an all-white group of in-house musicians, (famously referred to by Lynyrd Skynyrd in the song ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ as the ‘Swampers’), created countless classic soul records for the likes of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Clarence Carter and more during the 1960s. 

              This album charts the rise and fall of southern rock from its funky swamp roots in southern soul to its phenomenal success in the first-half of the 1970s, including its influence on Nashville’s ‘outlaw’ country and tracing it right back to the arrival of rock and roll in the 1950s - the first meeting of black and white American music at the crossroads.

              CD One/Volume one vinyl is tracks 1-13.

              CD Two/Volume two vinyl is 14-25


              "An impeccable collection of Southern Rock" THE GUARDIAN (*****)

              "Soul Jazz Records compilations are always worthwhile because of the care and detail they put into these nuggets of musical archaeology. There is not a bad track on Delta Swamp Rock. Southern rock continued the tradition of racial integration through music, that began in Memphis with rock and roll, combining soul, gospel, country and rock to come up with something that was, frequently, groovy in the extreme."  THE TIMES

              "An ambitious document of the tension between conservative musical aesthetics and breakout rock ’n’ roll styles that characterised the early 1970s inheritance of blues, soul and Country in the post- psychedelic South." THE WIRE

                    Blood-curdling sounds that will chill your spine and raise the hairs on the back of your neck!

                    This CD collects the previously unreleased soundtracks to two cult classic late seventies British horror films - Terror and Prey - both directed by Norman J Warren and composed by library hero Ivor Slaney!

                    From creepy, dark, lo-fi minimal synth to rocky stompers, with a goodly amount of screaming and thunder and lightening interludes, too!

                    This is the soundtrack to Jules Dassin's seminal 1968 black action film 'Uptight!'. We reckon that this is not only is this the first black action film, but also the first black action film soundtrack (predating Shaft, Super Fly, Sweet Sweetback by a good two years). Includes the long version of 'Time Is Tight' - as included in Soul Jazz Records' totally fab 'Can You Dig It' album. (We would say that wouldn't we).
