This Month on AiV: "Souled Out" (1975)

This month, we are taking a time trip back to 1975 for Souled Out, a K-Tel compilation of Funk and Soul classics from 1975.

The album features Bill Withers, Kool & the Gang, Gladys Knight and the Pips, the Hues Corporation and many more. Like its counterparts, Super Bad and Super Bad is Back, this album is more of a concept album capitalizing on the early 70s trend in blaxploitation films. Although, by the time of its release, blaxploitation was losing favor in 1975.

Here is the television commercial for Souled Out:



This album was new when I purchased it on Ebay. On this episode, we will play it for the first time.

Included with the album was a bonus: a K-Tel catalog from 1975. This is a treasure from the glory days of K-tel. Here is a .pdf version. Read it. Download if if you like. Enjoy.
