Resurrection Box

Ken Shipley is a hard man to shake. “I’ll call somebody a hundred times in a week if I think it’s the right person, if they don’t pick up,” he says matter-of-factly. “I’ll call some- body on an alternate cell phone number so they don’t see the same number over and over.” Shipley, along with Tom Lunt and Rob Sevier, runs Numero Group, a decade-long pro- ject to track down and reissue rare soul, funk, and blues from the 60s and 70s.
