Soul Rangers Volume Two
is the second in LocoBop’s series of southern soul music performed by some of the greatest interpreters of the art form called soul, musical pioneers whose roots were in the gospel of the church and the country blues of the soil.
 

Jerry Butler (“The Ice Man”) is a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, whose string of classics began with “For Your Precious Love.” Luther Ingram’s (“If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want to be Right” has been a world standard for nearly 40 years. Dobie Gray will always be remembered for “Drift Away.” Ivory Joe Hunter (1914-1974), the “Barron of Boogie,” notched up a string of crossover hits in the 1950s. Master showman Rufus Thomas (1917-2001) glided effortlessly from Vaudeville to radio to R&B. Eddie Floyd’s “Knock On Wood,” is the soul anthem. The Masqueraders are still active after 50 years of performing. The Barkays have personified soulfunk for over 40 years. The Green Brothers were one of the last acts signed to fabled soul label Stax Records. Tommy Tate soothes like Sam Cooke and soars like James Brown. J. Blackfoot scored over 15 Top Tens with the Soul Children before going solo with the smash “Taxi.” Randy Brown left The Newcomers for a successful solo path in the 1970s.
