Mitty CollierShades Of Mitty Collier – The Chess Singles 1961 to 1968 ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
A mighty helping of music from the overlooked Mitty Collier – a 60s soul singer on Chess Records, and one who was every bit as great as bigger label stars like Etta James or Fontella Bass! Like both of those singers, Mitty's got a voice that grabs you right from the get-go – a deeply soulful approach to her music that's really fresh and without cliche – especially considering she got her start belting out tunes years before some of the bigger names in 60s female soul, and managed to keep things mighty real all the years she was working at Chess. Production and arrangements here are all top shelf – handled by Phil Wright, Riley Hampton, and others – and the CD offers up 24 gems from Mitty's years at Chess – the a-sides of all 15 singles cut for the label, plus 9 more great tunes from the flips! Titles include "Everybody Makes A Mistake Sometimes", "Gotta Get Away From It All", "I've Got Love", "I Had A Talk With My Man", "Walk Away", "My Party", "Sharing You", "That'll Be Good Enough For Me", "Git Out", "Watching & Waiting", "Like Only Yesterday", "No Faith No Love", "I'm Your Part Time Love", and "Miss Loneliness".

New Mitty CollierHold The Light ... LP
Gospel Roots, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gospel set from Mitty Collier, but one that grooves along with the same full sound of her best secular work! Collier's one of those singers who always sounds great, no matter what side of the fence she sits on – and although the themes here are somewhat spiritual, the overall production has a great indie soul mode – arranged by Kevin Yancy with a vibe that's more early 70s Chicago than you might guess from the album's placement on the TK Gospel Roots label. Titles include "I'm Glad", "Love In The World", "He Brought Joy Into My Life", "On The Other Side", "Hold The Light", and "He Looked Beyond My Faults". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear, some wrinkling in the bottom corners, and some staining on the back along the bottom.)

New Mitty CollierWarning ... LP
III A.M., 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful album by Chicago soul great Mitty Collier! The records is a gospel album, but it's produced with a style that's very similar to Mitty's classic Chess work. Mitty's backed by a little combo led by organist Charles Pikes, who also wrote many of the tracks on the record with Mitty. Includes a great version of "I Had A Talk With God Last Night", which Mitty sung for Chess in a secular version, plus "The Warning", "In The Garden", and "He's My Light". Fantastic cover, too – with Mitty pointing ominously to an image of the world in flames! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a half split top seam.)

New VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Otis Redding – sung by some of his hippest contemporaries, and by a whole new generation inspired by his talents! The tunes here are all numbers you'd know from Redding's famous recordings for Stax and Atlantic – yet the versions are nice and fresh – some done with a gritty down-home feel that's rougher than any of Redding's records, others done with an inventive style that pushes the music forward into new modes – possibly those that Otis might have explored on his own, had he not been taken from us so soon! The package is a great testament to the Otis Redding legacy in soul music – and is filled with a whopping 25 tracks, all of them well-chosen – including "Baby Cakes" by Maxine Brown, "Just One More Day" by Clarence Carter, "Give Away None Of My Love" by Buddy Miles, "Wholesale Love" by Arthur Conley, "Hawg For You" by Tina Britt, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Chained & Bound" by Bettye Swann, "I'm Missing You" by Mitty Collier, "Sister Pitiful" by Judy Clay, "These Arms Of Mine" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Monkey On My BacK" by Jackie Hairston – plus the previously unreleased "Loving By The Pound (part 2)" by Otis Redding himself!
