Jason Perlmutter is rebuilding the history of soul music in the Carolinas. Through articles, his Web site, his radio show, and by curating collections of music, Perlmutter began creating a history of these records. This has made it possible to listen the music again after much of it was considered lost. Much of his success is due to dedication and detective work as tracking down these records can be difficult. Partnering with U.K.-based Jazzman, some of these records are being re-released and the original artists are being compensated.
