Classic Salsoul recordings like Loleatta Holloway's "Love Sensation," Inner Life's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," and First Choice's "Love Thang" are the backbone of the project. But its modern electro, house and nu disco producers like White Noize, J Paul Getto, Federico Scavo and the Cube Guys who bring that label's vintage 12-inch sides into the present.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
