The Truth Is A Lie: American Soul Music 1955-1972

Original Cairo 2LP + Booklet

New and unplayed. This label does not shrink wrap their releases. Three copies remain.


Expanded Description >>

From the label: “Double LP compilation of great soul music! The third in the Cairo sub label greatest hits of soul series. This volume focuses on mostly heavy duty ballads of the existential sort.  Overall the series of compilations is following a similar logic as Harry Smith’s Anthology Of American Folk Music – only where Smith covered folk, blues, gospel and old-timey, these compilations cover just American soul music recorded between 1955 and 1972. Features extensive 12 page liner notes with lots of photos.  Cover has gold-foil printing, and the records are housed in classy black sleeves. Super-fancy limited edition double LP not to be missed.”
