Soul Prescription – Soul4Real ESP LP

Soul Prescription – Soul4Real ESP LP


Whatever condition your condition is in, Soul4Real have huddled together a team of the finest soul physicians to make you feel good.
Soul4Real scoured all the shelves in the soul pharmacy and discovered some potions that were only just through the trial stage. Just one listen to the brilliant Aretha, Gladys, Walter Jackson and the Purify’s tracks convinced them not to wait for FDA approval, so they took the plunge and shared them with the world on vinyl for the very first time.
Recorded in 1968, Arthur Alexander‘s magnificent “I Need You Baby” reached legendary status during the tape-swapping epidemic of the late 70s/early 80s. The first traces of Alexanderitus were linked back to a tape dispensed by a north London mod by the name of Randy Cozens, which went viral. Even today, the mere mention of the title to any of those C60-swap-survivors can cause severe heart palpitations.
Down in Memphis, they tend to practice the holistic approach to heartaches. Southern folk understand it’s about the voice and its natural healing powers, especially when it’s being administered by the likes of the Soul Children and Shirley Brown, who instinctively inject the perfect amount of ache, warmth and emotion to hit just the right spot. May we prescribe at least two listens a day, taken with or without food.
Helping with recovery Soul4Real has included tracks by our care team Maxine, Gil Scott-Heron and the Isleys, whose gentle grooves will help nurse you back onto the dance floor in record time.
And finally, their personal favourite, Dr Johnnie Taylor. Wondering how someone who delivers the lines “she don’t break no records when it comes to good looks” and “she burns up the food when she cooks” to his girlfriend manages to avoid a trip to A&E. Soul4Real decided such foolish bravery should be rewarded by having his picture on the album cover.
