The Soulful Kinda Music Guide To The West Coast: A discography of West Coast Soul (Paperback)
The West Coast, sunshine and Soul Two cities dominate the book, Hollywood, and Los Angeles, and not surprisingly the same names keep appearing, either as label owners, or producers, or artists who label hopped. And the address that keeps appearing time and time again is the iconic Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. So it's no wonder there was such an interchange between the different labels really when a huge number of them were on the same street, no matter how long it is.The same format is used in this book as previous ones, I've tried to feature as many little labels that only had a few releases as well as some of the majors who had hundreds. The same with the artists. Some like Ike Turner has a career that strectched over multiple labels, and decades of releases, whereas others might have managed only one or two releases.
