Mid-Atlantic Story Vol. 3: Tr-Colour Vinyl LPNBR011LP-C1
Release Date: 7th April
You cannot beat a good soul compilation like Numero’s ‘Mid-Atlantic Story (Vol. 3)’. It’s a low-rider mixtape of doowop, swinging northern soul, ballads and obscure 45 cuts that are all hidden gems of another time. A perfect comp this.
For the lowriders, the souleros, and for any armchair drag racer who still has a record player within reach, Mid-Atlantic Story pays tribute to the aftermarket sounds of soul music, inspired by the record industry’s metric trunkload of cruising compilations, legitimate and otherwise, that soundtracked an entire subculture. This getaway ride mixtape strips aesthetics from the timeless East Side Story series, and poaches music from the greater Chesapeake Bay region. Roll with a jacked-up masterpiece.
