DriftersEvery Nite's A Saturday Night (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/7T's (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $4.99
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".

New DriftersUp On The Roof – The Best Of The Drifters ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 CadillacsCrazy Cadillacs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer from the legendary Cadillacs – maybe our favorite group on the east coast scene of the late 50s, and one of the few we can really depend on for a wonderful sense of range! The Cadillacs have a power that matches some of the bigger names of the time, especially The Drifters on Atlantic – and although the group were best known for their upbeat gimmicky tracks, they're also tremendous on ballads – of which there are a good number here! Production is nice and raw – with an especially noteworthy lack of instrumentation when things get mellow – and titles include "Gloria", "Don't Be Mad With My Heart", "Window Lady", "Carelessly", "Let Me Explain", "My Girl Friend", "Shock A Doo", "Zoom Boom Zing", and "Broken Heart".

VariousAt The Club – 25 Blistering Soul Essentials ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
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!
