Thanks for the link Ekki. A compilation like this is long overdue. Shame about the title; could've used Bobby Womack's working alternatives for his country album viz. Step Aside Charlie Pride and Give Another Nigga A Try or Black in the Saddle (are these apochryphal?). He settled on BW goes CW. Next time they should include some of Millie Jackson's stuff and Barbara Lynn.

Remember Fargo, this is a GERMAN label and I do think they did a pretty good job!
The more I play this compilation, the more I like it!

No, I think it looks really good. Never heard of the label before; they've got some great stuff on the website.

Trikont is a pretty good label if you like old and obscure music, that is well presented and good annotated. My fave series is this one:

Trikont might be the most interesting german label, check out their history:
Trikont, which was founded in Munich in 1971, is run by philosophy and political science graduate Achim Bergmann, and what you wouldn´t guess from the catalogue today is that it grew out of a small left-wing Publishing house that was distributing Chairman Mao´s Little Red Book and the Diary of Che Guevara.

´We were part of the non-dogmatic, "sponti" left/radical people,´explains Bergmann.
`All important things are political and we wanted to put out the music of the people that was not available in Germany at that time.´

I've just compiled a great soul/country CDR.

"In The Middle Of It All" by Arthur Alexander repeated 20 times on the trot. :D

TUNE!
