Release Date: 2021

Label: Kent


Track List



Fame Records was an off-shoot of the legendary FAME Studio, and this CD compilation looks at the very best of the label’s work during it’s first four years. Helmed by owner Rick Hall, aided and abetted by his team including Dan Penn, Spooner Oldham and the Swampers house band, this is some of the very finest music from the birth of Southern soul. It features hits by Clarence Carter and Jimmy Hughes, Northern soul classics from James Barnett and Art Freeman, recordings by Dann Penn and Spooner Oldham, as well as the choicest unreleased at the time cuts that we have unearthed during our trawls of the tape vault. The full colour booklet includes an in-depth sleeve note and many beautiful photographs sourced from the Fame Studio archive.
