Another European variation of the US "This Is Soul" sampler. For more background check post on the UK 12 track mono version http://monolover.blogspot.se/2013/03/this-is-soul-643-301-68-uk-mono.html . The British used different tracking where just a couple coincided with the US original and most cuts had original mono mixes. When it comes to sixties recordings I prefer mono and therefore hold that very high in this context, but the German shown here also has many things going for it. You get fourteen cuts - same as UK + two - all are true stereo and the audio beautiful. The label is "plum" design on thick vinyl and the laminated fold/out cover has four sheets inside, giving in total ten pages with pictures and info (in English). Something for all senses. I've seen claims very first issue had a common single sleeve and this fold/out was somewhat later. That may be but due to label design I'm confident this is early too (comes with a no-swap guarantee). Vinyl reissues 1973 in Germany and Holland on Atlantic (ATL 20 023) and CD in the nineties (7567-80336-2). (SÄM*) (GÖXÄ*) (ÄTHP*)
