Few record labels have garnered the feverish attentions of soul & funk collectors and DJs as much as the Saadia imprint of late ‘60s Miami, Florida. In a collecting world dominated by oddball one-offs, random indie obscurities and the occasional major label mishap, a local independent label with a small but consistently impeccable musical output is a truly rare thing. Saadia sets the benchmark for rare, local, independent funk and sets it very high indeed. Never before put together, this 10 track CD compilation selects the highlights from the small but perfectly formed Saadia catalogue and offers an opportunity to shed some light on the story behind these outstanding recordings for the first time.
