A Challenge: Kentucky Soul?
A reader of this blog and a fellow Kentucky native asked me if I knew of any soul records made in Kentucky. Considering that there was some recording going on in just about any city of considerable size, I would figure that some - albeit terminally obscure - soul records came out of Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green or Ashland. Of course, it is possible that many Kentucky artists made their way to Cincinnati instead, since King Records and a host of other labels were there. At any rate, I am not aware of any Kentucky soul records, although I know Phillip Mitchell was from Louisville. Does anyone have any ideas or resources they would like to share? Any info would be welcomed.
