LIMITED EDITION GOLD 2LP VINYL RE-ISSUE GATEFOLD
Release Date: 9th June 2023
"Long out of print (10 years), this new edition of Soul Jazz Records’ classic, ‘Delta Swamp Rock’, features a killer all-star line-up of seminal artists who all first blended rock, soul and country together to create a stunning new sound of Southern American music in the 1970s. Featuring the Allman Brothers, Dan Penn, Leon Russell, Tony Joe White, Johnny Cash, Bobbie Gentry, Big Star, Link Wray, Area Code 615 and loads more. The album charts the rise and fall of Southern rock, from its funky swamp roots in Southern soul to its phenomenal success in the first half of the 1970s, including its influence on Nashville’s ‘outlaw’ country and tracing it right back to the arrival of rock and roll in the 1950s - the first meeting of black and white American music at the crossroads. This album comes as a superb special edition gold double vinyl release complete with extensive original sleeve notes, interviews and exclusive photography, all spread over a 12-page full-size magazine and two bespoke inner sleeves."
