Boomkat Product Review:
On Numero, a compliation of Shiptown artists recorded between 1965-77 - Eccentric Soul: The Shiptown Label.
"From a humble storefront studio located in a shoeshine parlor on Norfolk, Virginia’s Church Street, Noah Biggs built a world. Hustler by day, gambler by night, the alwaysin-a-suit Biggs took a gaggle of off-brand singers and combined his connections and charisma to forge timeless soul music during a period of deep upheaval.
Compiled here are 25 of Shiptown’s most compelling sides, from the likes of Ida Sands, The Soul Duo, The Anglos, Dream Team, The Grooms, Positive Sounds, Barbara Stant, Wilson Williams, Art Ensley, and yes, Flip Flop Stevens."
