Lost for thirty years among the kudzu and Coke bottles of central Georgia, the Tragar
& Note labels are the latest Numero Group unearthings to join our landmark
Eccentric Soul series. Spread out over two discs, Eccentric Soul: The Tragar & Note
Labels is a ridiculously thorough survey of Jesse Jones' twin labels that operated out of Atlanta between 1968-1977. Ranging from southern to northern soul, classic R&B to modern, dancers to romancers, the 50 track collection chronicles nearly every sub-genre of popular black music being made at the time.
Researched with leading Georgia soul expert Brian Poust, the accompanying 32 page booklet features a dozen unpublished photos, memorabilia, label scans, and a 7000 word essay that gives a rich overview of not just these two labels, but the Atlanta soul scene as a whole.
