'Stunning... top extra tracks, too! '

★★★★ MOJO

SSS International, along with its affiliates Silver Fox and Minaret, produced and released some of the finest Southern soul and deep soul recordings of the 60s. These two original Charly albums Music City Soul and SSS Soul Survey, released in 1978 and 1982 respectively, collect the best of these tracks from the late 60s and into the 70s and are presented here on a 2CD set for the first time, along with 18 bonus tracks.

Formed in 1966 by Shelby Singleton, SSS International boasted an enviable roster: Wilbert Harrison, Bettye Lavette, Robert Parker, Big Al Downing, Betty Harris, Hank Ballard and Doris Allen to name but a few. Singleton, the husband of singer Margie Singleton, entered the music industry by promoting his wife but soon carved an illustrious career for himself, initially working for Mercury before branching out on his own and eventually purchasing the legendary Sun Records.
