Now-Again Records, in association with label-owner Lee Anthony, is proud to present the deluxe 4LP vinyl box set, Deep Sounds from the Left of Stax which contains the anthology in its entirety. Over twelve years in the making, this anthology seeks to establish True Soul's rightful place within America's funk and soul pantheon.
True Soul's story intertwines with the renowned Sam Philips – an early mentor and patron – and Memphis's Al Bell and Willie Mitchell – with whom Anthony David collaborated as he cultivated Little Rock's funk and soul scene under the shadows of Stax and Hi Records. The Gap Band's genesis is but one sub-plot, as Anthony's recordings of a stranded funk ensemble make their way to Leon Russell and lead to the formation of one of the decade's best-known showbands.
The 4LP box set carries the rare, locally-distributed funk and soul 45s that led the likes of renowned collectors DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist to Anthony's Soul Brothers' Records in search of his fabled "treasure chest" and carry the True Soul story in detailed, extensive full-color booklets chock full of photos and ephemera.
