Since 1999, Agent45 (Brian Poust) has been researching/documenting the rich history of Soul & Funk from the state of Georgia . While the capital city of Atlanta entered the greater consciousness of the world through it's burgeoning Hip Hop scene of the late 1980s and beyond, this was built on a solid foundation of R&B music going back to Atlanta's historic night clubs of the 1940s. While much of this music has since become widely known to DJs and collectors, Agent 45 has teamed with Tucker & Bloom (www.tucker-bloom.com Twitter: @tuckerbloom) to spotlight the often overlooked sounds of Atlanta Funk & Boogie artists of the 1970s & 80s, just before the capital of the "Dirty South" earned it's Hip Hop stripes. We present to you an hour of Atlanta artists who released independent records on Mom & Pop labels, many that couldn't last beyond their first release, yet still hid their own unique treasure waiting to be discovered decades later. Welcome To Atlanta and check out T&B's great bags!
