    Some proper tunes on here.



    Here & Now Recordings says: The story of this label is set in the heart of the North of England, in the Yorkshire city of Leeds, where ATA's boutique analog studio spent years developing its sound to create a vast, rich catalog of soulful music which utilised the handsome wealth of local musical talent and boasted a recording output to rival that of its New York and Detroit contemporaries. The 12 recordings on this compilation encapsulate the high quality playing, performing and production which sealed the burgeoning reputation that ATA was gaining within Leeds and wets the appetite as to what the label could have achieved in the greater musical landscape of that period, both domestically and internationally.
