RARE AND UNISSUED PACIFIC NORTHWEST FLOOR FILLERS
• UNEARTHED REELS FROM SALEM OREGON’S GARLAND RECORDS!
• CUT BY KEVIN GRAY, AND PRESSED ON COLORED VINYL AT THIRD MAN PRESSING IN DETROIT!
• BLUE EYED SOUL FROM THE BEAVER STATE!
While soul music might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the music of the Pacific Northwest, Salem Oregon’s Garland Records was churning out high quality hip shakers along with their reels of garage & psych. Contained here is some super deep “Northwestern Soul,” including three cuts making their inaugural spins 50 years after they were put to tape. From the politically powerful “Freedom Train,” a pleasantly less polished version of a Motown staple, to a pair of energetic takes on some Bobby Blue Bland steamers. Some seriously unique takes on soul classics paired with some soul could’ve beens. CD includes two bonus cuts not available on the LP!
With Sundazed Music’s acquisition of the Garland Records catalog you’re in for a tidal wave of great garage rock, pysch, soul, and even some country. Here with Pacific Northwest Juke Box, you’re treated to floor fillers and even a couple for holding your special person close.
True to form for BeatRocket’s Garland Records collections is the abundance of original material. Sixties Salem Oregon was about as musically diverse as they come and BeatRocket is sorting through the Garland reels to prove it!
