Carhartt WIP Radio Show November 2014 - Numero Group
- Date published
Founded in 2003 by Ken Shipley, Tom Lunt and Rob Sevier, the record company takes pride in presenting diverse material that never quite made it first time round and have received three Grammy Award nominations for their insightful and comprehensive packages that include vinyl, photos, extensive liner notes and interviews to put the music into context.
In the beginning the label's focus was on rare soul and R&B music, as well as on defunct labels like Capsoul from Columbus, Ohio. For a while now, Numero Group and its diverse sub-labels have showcased old southern rock, psychedelic, rock, gospel, or odd folk.
Numero Group's dedication has turned them into detectives, intent on making contact with the original artists and labels to provide a story behind the recordings.
For Carhartt WIP Radio this month, Numero Group have compiled tracks from largely unknown acts like Superchief, The Next Exit, Deep Heat, The Rollers, The Classmen and a whole lot more.
