"The third release in Numero's Eccentric Soul series traces the roots of disco back to 1964 via a troop of marching misfits. The Deep City label launched the career of Betty Wright, Little Beaver, Paul Kelly, Clarence Reid (and subsequently Blowfly), and Grammy winning producer Willie Clarke, before going under in 1968. A cross between Detroit rhythms and Memphis brass, the Deep City sound, and its players, helped create the disco explosion of the early 1970s. Culled from the collection of Florida music historian Jeff Lemlich, the tracks selected showcase the talents of relative unknowns like the Moovers, Them Two, Johnny K Killens, Frank Williams, and Helene Smith, and also features the earliest work ever recorded by Paul Kelly and Betty Wright."
