Various Artists (Spring Records)

One of the major soul labels of the 1970s, Spring Records was formed in the late 1960s by Bill Spitalsky and Roy and Julie Rifkind. A hothouse label for some of the most essential soul music of the era, Millie Jackson, Joe Simon and The Fatback Band made their best-known songs and greatest chart hits for Spring. Tracks include Fatback's '(Are You Ready) Do The Bus Stop', Joe Simon's powerful, Gamble & Huff-penned 'Drowning In The Sea Of Love' and Millie Jackson's scorchingly confessional 'If Loving You Is Wrong (I Don't Wanna Be Right)'. Spring (with its subsidiaries Posse and Event) not only produced the big 1970s soul hits, they also gave us the minor hits and little gems that make soul music so interesting and rewarding.
