This is part of the official synopsis for the book;
"Street Sounds: The Story, is as much about the music as it is about the fashions and attitudes of the 1980’s and into the ‘90’s. In many ways Street Sounds mirrored what was happening on the streets. The book branches off into directions that tell the reader about the struggles of black artists to be supported, it tells of the street kids who wore Adidas trainers and Kagools and, spent their free time break dancing on pieces of cardboard on street corners. There’s also the politics of the day- in and out of the recording studios and board room meetings.
Street Sounds is also about evolving, and as Electro and Hip Hop went in it’s own direction, Morgan saw the next thing and this was the Chicago House sound, which paved the way for Acid House. Street Sounds played a big part in helping to bring Chicago House artists, now legends, like Marshal Jefferson, Joe Smooth and Sterling Void and, others on the seminal House label DJ International, to the kids of the UK.
Soul and Jazz Funk music were other genres of black music that Street Sounds pioneered and promoted. The Anthems compilations were very exciting and made many artists household names. Jazz was also embraced by Street Sounds and the Jazz Juice compilations helped to introduce a new generation of 80’s kids to a sound that only their parents and grandparents listened to, but Morgan saw the importance of the music, Street Sounds released the albums and the music blew up again".
