Limited edition of 1000.
As a curtain raiser to Kent’s forthcoming frenzy of activity surrounding Muscle Shoals’ premier recording outlet, Fame Records – and in recognition of Record Store Day 2011 – we proudly present a new four-track EP by just a few of the many names that can truthfully be called ‘The Stars Of Fame’.
This collection of four never-before-heard recordings from FAME Studios vaults represents just a tiny fraction of the unissued masters that will be appearing on Kent in the course of the next couple of years.
These tracks all date from the mid-late 1960s – the peak years of Southern Soul - and have all been specially chosen to represent all facets of the classic, and immediately identifiable, FAME Studios sound.
All of the featured artists are favourites of Southern Soul collectors the world over, and all four of the featured recordings are exclusive to this limited edition at this time.
Like 2010’s ‘The Starts Of Goldwax’ – and like all Record Store Day releases – this will be deleted once the initial pressing of 1000 has sold out. Many who did not grab one right away were disappointed not to obtain a copy of last year’s EP, and they will be sure not to let the same thing happen again.
