‘YIA Talent Hunt Winners’ is one of Brooklyn’s most sought-after ‘holy grail’ soul records. Youth in Action, Inc. (YIA) was formed in 1963 after the Central Brooklyn Coordinating Council received a grant to develop a youth services program in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community in order to address the social problems that were leading to the high crime rate. This album is the product of a talent show where local vocal groups chose tunes to cover fom the era: 1964-1968.
