This is the fifth of highly regarded series on Afro-American music in the Lone Star State. By 1968 soul music was fully in the ascendant, with sub genres like funk starting to show through as well. Blues and R&B were not so often recorded as buyers found these older styles less relevant. So this album continues the tradition of mixing up big star artists with lesser known singers, bringing together a large percentage of uptempo songs, with some delivious ballads for a change of pace. Definitely the best of Texas 1968!
