Looking Stateside: 80 US R&B, Mod, Soul and Garage Nuggets

The ‘Looking’ series of compilations from Cherry Red really are superb. So we are really excited to see another on the horizon – Looking Stateside: 80 US R&B, Mod, Soul and Garage Nuggets. In fact, you can pre-order your copy right now if you love to plan ahead.

The past series, if you missed them, kicked off with Looking Back: 80 Mod, Freakbeat and Swinging London Nuggets, which was followed by Looking Good – 75 Femme Mod Soul Nuggets in 2013, then finally the Keep Lookin’ – Another 80 Mod, Soul and Freakbeat Nuggets box. Well, not quite finally as details of the Stateside box have just broken.

Thanks to John Reed at Cherry Red for letting us know the track listing and of course, for sending over the artwork.

According to John, the new collection from the RPM imprint of Cherry Red focuses on American grooves of the 1960s, mixing the genres for an overview of the era.

Disc one is ‘quite obscure’, described as early 60s proto-soul and R&B, throwing in some sur instrumentals and girl group sounds for good measure. The second disc is ‘more familiar’ and including some northern classics (but not too over-compiled), while the third disc goes garage punk and beat, with a touch of psychedelia towards the end.

Of course, if you want all of that in detail, the track listings are below for all three discs – 80 tracks in total, was the title suggests.

The box set isn’t landing in time for Christmas sadly, if you have any money left it is provisionally down for 29th January 2016. However, you can pre-order one now if you like. Amazon has the three-disc set listed for £18.58.
