"Between 1967 and 1981 Detroit's downriver neighbor Ecorse, MI had its very own Moe Asch. Set up in a basement on 18th Avenue, Felton Williams' Double U Sound chronicled the musical lives of Ecorse's citizens and issued them on the Solid Rock, Compose, and Revival labels. Compiled here are 24 of Williams' most fascinating recordings, covering gospel, group soul, garage-punk, northern, jazz, and funk. Also included in the 2LP package is a DVD of the nearly 200 sound recordings pulled from his archives and a 30 minute documentary on the making of Downriver Revival. Deluxe 2LP set contains 24 prime tracks from the Double U archives housed in a thick gatefold sleeve with a tipped in booklet stuffed with photos and detailed notes on the recordings. DVD contains a virtual vault for a 'dig your own' experience." Artists include Shirley Ann Lee, Gospel Supremes, Coleman Family, Calvin Cooke, Bobby Cook & the Explosions, Organics, Combinations, Apostles Of Music, Deliverance Echoes, The Young Generation, Junior Mays Group, The Burgess Band, Mighty Voices Of Wonder and Voices Of Deliverance.
