Summer is the weekend of all seasons, and this summer we’ve got two ice cold compilations buried in our styrofoam cooler that will sound especially good in the sun, yet just as refreshing in the shade.

NUM051-1400x

Taking a long look back at the Numero Group’s first release, Eccentric Soul: The Capsoul Label, we revisit Columbus, Ohio to offer listeners a generous portion of Eccentric Soul: Capital City Soul. Above is label owner Bill Moss whose apropos “Number One” made his little enterprise a great place for Numero to begin their journey a decade ago. What to expect: More good stuff.

NUM053-1400

We then head north to Cleveland, the setting of Eccentric Soul: The Way Out Label. From 1962 to 1973, Way Out evolved from doo-wop foundry to lawless clubhouse for number runners, slick-talking entrepreneurs, and Cleveland Browns. Above is Jesse Fisher, one of the last men standing at Way Out’s E. 55th St. headquarters. With a total of 40 songs spread over 3LPs or 2CDs, subscribers and preordering individuals will be awarded and entire bonus LP of bonus material. What to expect: More in-sounds from Way Out.

Both titles will hit shelves, on-line shopping carts, and party playlists on June 24th, 2014.
