Whilst browsing through my Americana compilation section the other day I stumbled across Sinner's Prayer - A collection of past and present classic sounds from Rounder Records
Founded in 1970 they claim to be America's premier independent record label.
They have certainly been at the forefront of American "roots" music over the years with probably only Hightone running them close.
This compilation gives a good idea of their range of genres including Americana, soul, blues, bluegrass , Cajun and folk
Given my past history you won't be entirely surprised to note that the two songs featured here are from Americana and Soul artists although anything on the Rounder label is well worth checking out.
The Steeldrivers - If It Hadn't Been For Love
Irma Thomas - Another Man Gone Wrong
