The August pick for our Record of the Month Club is the latest soul compilation from Cairo Records, “The World is a Cafeteria: American Soul Music (and one song from Ghana) 1955-1998” // The double LP features tracks by Irma Thomas, Nina Simone, Ray Charles, Don Bryant, Allen Toussaint, Arthur Connelly, and lots lots more. The record is beautifully packaged with gold-foil cover art and extensive liner-notes booklet full of photos and artist bios.

We’ve got a few copies for sale online and in the shop for non-ROTM Club members.

We’ll begin shipping these out to ROTM Club members ASAP! If you live in Oxford you can swing by the shop any day to pick up your copy.
