In 2004, Light In The Attic and DJ Supreme La Rock compiled the first ever set of vintage Pacific Northwest soul, funk, and R&B, Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 (LITA 009). Nearly a decade on, the Wheedle still grooves and with this we give you our most ambitious release to date.
Over three years in the making, Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-79 is a lavishly packaged vinyl singles box set featuring ten impossibly rare 45s (some fetching thousands on the collector’s market) from Seattle’s vintage soul scene. Limited to only 2,000 hand-numbered copies worldwide, the ten 45 RPM set is housed in a gorgeous custom made magnetic flip-top box and features meticulously re-mastered audio and original label art. For those who must hear these vintage tunes and can’t relax with a tipple at the turntable, we’ve even included a free download card for all tracks.
But wait, our love for Seattle soul could not rest there… we’ve included a massive 7×7 glossy 96-page book with new liner notes by Jonathan Zwickel that features new interviews with the regional musicians and key players, along with never before seen photos-from smokey Seattle clubs to Patrinell Staten singing at Jimi Hendrix’s funeral. Plus, a treasure trove of local music ephemera, a replica Seattle SuperSonics trading card, andcountless archival gems.
To round out this lavish set, we’ve also added a very special CD by Seattle soul titans Robbie Hill’s Family Affair: Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions, which though originally recorded in 1975, remained lost until the recent discovery of the original multi-track masters. The tapes were carefully mixed by renowned engineer and producer Steve Fisk. To say it’s a miracle that these tapes surfaced would be a massive understatement.
A true love letter to Seattle and its Soul & Funk music scenes,Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-79
It’s a treasure not to be missed.
