Home to the largest steel mill in the U.S. of A, Gary, Indiana also birthed the Jackson 5, so it only makes sense that Numero should shine a light on the molten hot melange of soulful activity that came from there. Mercifully skipping over any ABCs or blaming it on the boogie, the focus here is on the acts that didn't make it quite so big, including the likes of The New Day, El Anthony, Nate Evans, Sky's The Limit, and plenty more. Clocking in at twenty-one of the best tunes the crate diggers at Numero could unearth, Skyway Soul is another essential volume in this remarkable regional soul compilation series. - Flying Out

A sonic snapshot of America's steel capital, developed in the prosperous cavern between the departure of the Jackson 5 to Motown and the collapse of U.S. Steel, Skyway Soul is a love letter to Gary, Indiana. Featuring The New Day, El Anthony, Nate Evans, Sky's The Limit, Wilton Crump, Lost Weekend, General Lee, Krash Band, Billy Foster & Audio, I.N.D., and Junei, this double album collects 21 lost songs from the southern-most tip of Lake Michigan. Housed in a deluxe tip-on gatefold jacket, with a 16-page booklet crammed with photos, ephemera, and an in-depth essay from Jake Austen, Skyway Soul connects the dots between The Spaniels, Michael Jackson, and Freddie Gibbs. Don't forget to pay the toll.
