Between 1967 and 1981, Detroit's downriver neighbour Ecorse, Michigan had it's own Moe Asch. Set up on the 18th Avenue, Felton Williams chronicled the musical lives of Ecorse's citizens and issued them on the Solid Rock, Compose and Revival labels. Compiled here are 24 of Williams' most fascinating recordings, covering gospel, group soul, garage-punk, northern, jazz and funk.

Also included is a DVD archive of the nearly 200 sound recordings pulled from williams' vaults, plus a 30-minute video documentery on the making of Downriver Revival
