'Stone Crush' is the definitive overview of Memphis' modern soul scene of the post-Stax years. It's a collection of funky tracks of hope-from dentist O.T. Sykes, who traded dental work for studio time, to the ad-man who moonlighted as the visionary mastermind behind Captain Fantastic & Starfleet, few of them ever had anything to do with a hit, but across the board, each believed. Like Cato Walker, whose father's gig as B.B. King's driver got him an in, and The Bar-Kays' former costume maker Libra, some had tangential connections to the city's deep-rooted music scene that gave them a head start on their hopeful path to fame. Over a decade in the making, 'Stone Crush' is an expertly curated compilation of these home-grown slices of Memphis stylings, from roller skate boogie to private press soul to bedroom funk-rare sides whose original copies are considered holy grails by DJs and collectors all over. This collection does more than transport us to a time gone by. It helps us hear what couldn't be heard then. Compiled by Daniel Mathis and Chad Weekley. Liner notes by Memphis curator/writer Andria Lisle and Grammy Award-winning writer Robert Gordon. Includes unseen archive photos and ephemera. The vinyl is housed in a gatefold jacket with 24-page full-color book.
