DriftersEvery Nite's A Saturday Night (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/7T's (UK), 1976. New Copy .... $6.99
The Drifters' one and only album for Arista Records – and, like their previous Bell albums, a UK-only set that continued their revival years overseas! The production's a bit smoother than before – mostly in keeping with the shifting styles of soul at the time, with a few more uptempo numbers thrown into the mix, but never in a way that's too cheaply disco or commercial. Rogers Cook and Greenaway are still working with the group here – continuing a unified sound from the Bell years – and the vocals continue a nice evolution from the 60s sound of The Drifters – picking up a fair bit of inspiration from younger American vocal group soul of the 70s. Titles include "I'll Know When True Love Really Passes By", "Summer In The City", "You're More Than A Number In My Little Red Book", "Do You Have To Go Now", "Twice A Week", and "Like A Movie I've Seen Twice Before". CD features 9 bonus tracks – some previously unissued – including "A Good Song Never Dies", "I Can't Believe It's Over", "When Ya Comin Home", "Devil In Me", "You're Never More Than A Heartbeat Away", and "Don't Act Like You Don't Know".

DriftersUp On The Roof – The Best Of The Drifters ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy .... $15.99
Seminal work from the post-Clyde McPhatter version of The Drifters – a sublime batch of singles that really showcase all that's great from the second chapter of the group! The set's way more than a "best of" – as it was the only full album to feature most of these cuts – and together, they really illustrate the excellent changes the group had made – including their alliance with the Leiber & Stoller team, and their great use of exotic rhythms and instrumentation! Some cuts still echo earlier R&B, while others have plenty of cool Latin elements in the mix too – a rhythm that really works well for the vocals of Ben E King's lead with the group. Titles include "Sweets For My Sweet", "There Goes My Baby", "Stranger On The Shore", "Save The Last Dance For Me", "When My Little Girl Is Smiling", "Ruby Baby", "True Love True Love","Another Night With The Boys", "What To Do", "Mexican Divorce", and "Room Full Of Tears".

New DriftersSave The Last Dance For Me ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sublime mid-period work from The Drifters – a record cut when the group was working with the team of Lieber & Stoller, who revamped their sound into a sweetly soulful groove that really set the scene for the New York uptown sound of the 60s! The tracks here often have a lilting little rhythm at the bottom – just enough to get thing stepping along in a mode that's sweeter, and arguably more sophisticated than the group's earlier R&B work. And the overall sound is so great, we hardly miss Clyde McPhatter or Ben E King – because the rest of the group has a nicely unified sound. Tracks include "Nobody But Me", "Room Full Of Tears", "No Sweet Lovin", "Jackpot", "Sweets For My Sweet", and more! Also includes the great early Bacharach track "Mexican Divorce"! CD

VariousBlame It On The Dogg – The Swamp Dogg Anthology 1968 to 1978 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams is a man of many talents – a musical reach that goes way beyond his familiar solo records of the 70s, and which stretches back strongly with some deep roots in 60s soul! Back in the day, Williams worked often as a producer, arranger, and songwriter for a variety of different artists – a good deal of whom are featured on this set – one of the best collections we've ever seen of Jerry's mighty talents in the studio! In a way, Williams is almost better behind the booth in the studio than he is in front of the microphone – as he's got a way of handling an artist that really gets to the heart of their talents – mixed with his own sense of hutspah that helps get the recordings out to the market where a weaker producer might have failed at the job. CD features 24 tracks in all, along with some great notes on these other Swamp Dogg productions by Jerry – and tracks include "Plea #3" by Eleanor Grant, "Your Best Friend" by The Drifters, "He's Gone" by Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles, "On Your Way Home" by C & The Shells, "Shipwrecked" by Jerry Williams, "Stop Knocking" by Ruth Brown, "God Bless" by Wolfmoon, "Complication #4" by Arthur Conley, "Don't Trust A Woman" by Slick N The Family Brick, and "What's So Wrong With You Loving Me" by Kenny Carter.

New VariousAt The Club – 25 Blistering Soul Essentials ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent batch of 25 groovers, all hand-picked from the Atlantic soul catalog with a selection that moves waaaaay past the big ol' hits! This is the kind of stuff that we die to find on funky 45s – only if we're lucky! Titles include "Walking Up A One Way Street" by Willie Tee, "At The Club" by The Drifters, "It Ain't What You Got" by Jimmy Hughes, "Help Me Get The Feeling" by Ray Sharpe, "Some Other Guy" by Richie Barrett, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Que Sera Sera" by The High Keys, "Keep Lookin" by Solomon Burke, and the amazing "Some Kind Of Wonderful" by Soul Brothers Six, a monster track that is worth the price of the CD alone!
