37 groovie spanish soul & funk stompers from the 60’s and 70’s.

Soul “Music Made in USA” for Spanish clubs. Fuel for igniting dance floors and parties: that’s what Spanish Soul was during the second half of the sixties. It was an eruption that filled the locals of major cities and touristy spots with sweat, dance, diversion and recognition. Soul didn’t explode in Spain until after 1965 (the first hit was The Four Tops’, “Reach Out I'll Be There”). Soul was approachable and had playful-vindicating references (messages in favor of civil rights didn’t fall on deaf ears in a country subjected to the Francoist Dictatorship) which made it an ideal style for all young audiences. But once they were adopted by Soul, other problems arose. The brass section is one example: it wasn’t easy finding musicians who knew how to play the trumpet, saxophone or the trombone. Despite this fact, the tourist phenomenon contributed to a great number of foreign musicians establishing themselves in Spain, enriching the sound of many groups dedicated to Black music.

With all these ingredients Soul in Spain was possible –and with good groups too. Hundreds of bands from all over the country added to the new music paradigm and many managed to record. Some became success stories of Spanish Pop, others were known in smaller realms and disappeared into obscurity. For that reason Vampisoul is pleased to offer a selection of the best of Spanish Soul and Funk from the 60s and early 70s: music to dance to, from Benidorm to Tokyo... and back.
