Strut Records to Release Soweto and Christmas Soul Comps
- Words: Stefan Nickum
One of the best holiday gifts for the family music lover is a box set. Not only do they look big and well-proportioned in wrapping paper, they're a great way to give a lot in just one gift. One November 23, Strut will release two timely compilations, one being a limited-edition box set of Strut's three Next Stop... Soweto volumes from the '60s and '70s, and the other a two-CD compilation of rare 45s and b-sides of Christmas-themed soul music from the same era. Each of these comps are for the true digger, and both contain extensive liner notes and production details that offer unique insights into their geneses. To reader further about each comp and listen to samples, check Strut's microsites for the Next Stop...Soweto comp here, and the In the Christmas Groove comp here. The artwork is below.
