'Soul'ed Out!

VA - Souled Out - 49 Original Hits - 49 Original Stars (K-tel NA 450 AUS - NE 508 UK - NU 9010 USA - TN 1161 NLD) (2021 Remastered Expanded Edition) (2CD) (1973)     Souled Out was issued by K-tel in four different countries over a period of four years. The series contained a great 10 year span of classic soul from 1966 to 1976. The albums were released in Australia (1973), the UK (1974), the USA (1975) and in the Netherlands in (1976). They each had different track listings. For this 2021 remaster, I have selected the 49 very best tracks from all four versions for a special 2CD set.

Disc 1 comprises of 25 of the very best song selections with a running time of 79:08 CD length.

Disc 2 ccmprises of 24 of the very best song selections with a running time of 78:21 CD length.


VA - Soul Motion - 20 Original Hits - 20 Original Stars (K-tel NE 930 UK) (2021 Remaster) (1976)      Soul Motion was originally released by K-tel in the UK only in 1976 on vinyl and cassette, and contained 20 smash hits. It was an absolute smash hit in the UK reaching #1 in the album charts on 16th October, 1976, and stayed at #1 for two weeks, with a total of 13 weeks on the charts. This 2021 remaster features all the complete original unedited 7" single mixes, including a few hard to find tracks, some never released on CD with a new running time of 67:42 CD length.

VA - Soul City - 20 Original Soul Hits (K-tel NE 1003 UK) (2021 Remaster) (1977)      Soul City was originally released by K-tel in the UK only in 1977 on vinyl and cassette, and contained 20 smash hits. It was a big success in the UK reaching #12 in the album charts on 29th October, 1977, and stayed on the charts for seven weeks.

    2. BB, had to laugh when I saw the Aussie cover for Souled Out....how times have changed since the easy going 70s.

    3. Hi Bob Mac,
      Yes sir. The title is a strange name too. We couldn't even entertain using a cover like that again. Its great to see all the different artwork as well though.
      Cheers

  8. Thanks 'K' - I'm so happy to see in the tracklist the word 'ORIGINAL' so many times, and not someone's remixed version of a classic song. Thanks for creating these so authentically' :)
