I grew up, as a teenager, listening to soul music, it was some years before I discovered Grateful Dead. Over the years the boys have covered a number of classic soul songs and that's the reason that this compilation came about.

Bobby Bland's Turn On Your Love Light came out in 1961, so it's not strictly speaking a soul classic but it's as near as damn it. Some might say Martha Reeves was not soul either, but she has one of the most soulful voices I ever heard! Little Red Rooster is a Chester Burnett song and the Dead performed it as a blues, but the version I first heard was by Sam Cooke and that was as soulful as you like. That's why I am including it here. There's no denying the pedigree ot the other songs in this collection.

NB: All of these tracks have been remastered for the purpose of this compilation
