Rare soul from Sam Dees – Shelby Singleton productions for SSS International – starting with a nice, rumbling bassline and piano before Sam's achingly soulful voice kicks in the with the horns – with a raspy style that's completely sublime.

Linda MartellColor Me Country ... CD
Plantation/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes that artists like Millie Jackson picked up in the 70s. But the set was also recorded as part of the SSS International family of labels headed by Shelby Singleton – who also cut a fair bit of soul music at the time – often blending modes, musicians, and songs on the Nashville scene of the time. The best example of that approach here is Linda's excellent remake of "Color Him Father" – first made famous by The Winstons – done as a sweet-stepping number with a very different feel than the original. Other tracks include "The Wedding Cake", "Before The Next Teardrop Falls", "Old Letter Song", and "Tender Leaves Of Love". CD

New Johnny AdamsChasing Rainbows – The Tan Canary – New Orleans Soul 1969 to 1981 ... CD
Shout (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive look at the lost years of southern soul singer Johnny Adams – 2CDs worth of music that bring together a wealth of tracks recorded between his initial years on SSS International Records, and his later revival in the 80s on Rounder! These cuts all appeared on much more obscure albums – records issued by the Chelsea, Ariola, and Hep Me labels – none of which ever got much exposure back in the day, but which are wonderfully pulled together here to capture these lost years in Johnny's career! In a way, this material may be some of the best that he ever recorded – as it's got a sense of poise and maturity, but also feels somewhat relaxed and intimate – that stronger sort of sophistication that was bubbling in the undercurrent of southern soul as the 70s moved on. Adams' vocals are impeccable throughout – often crackling with a nice sort of rasp, even when the backings are tight or smooth – and titles include "The Image Of Me", "Chasing Rainbows", "I Can't Believe She Gives It All To Me", "After All The Good Is Gone", "Night People", "Memories", "Stand By Me", "I Can't Be All Bad", "Too Much Pride", "Nothing Takes The Place Of You", "Give Me A Chance", "I Don't Wanna Cry", "Baby Baby I Love You", and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".

New Peggy ScottShe's Got It All – Rare 70s Soul ... CD
Shout (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Obscure 70s work from southern soul vocalist Peggy Scott – recorded during some lesser-known years in her career! Peggy's probably best known for her work with Jo Jo Benson on SSS International in the late 60s – and for her recent fame as Peggy Scott-Adams – but here, she's heard on a selection of late 70s sides recorded at Malaco Records, all of which update her older style with a slightly more contemporary vibe! The sessions were produced by Bob McRee, and although a few tracks were issued previously as singles in Europe, this CD presents them as an album for the first time ever – showing a Scott who's much more mature than her early duet soul years, and working in a mix of modes that includes a number of tracks aimed at the dancefloor – a bit like some of her contemporaries at TK Records during the same time. McRee's production is smooth, but never dominates the vocals – and the clubbier tracks still come off nicely thanks to Peggy's handling of the lyrics – in a way that reminds us of some of the deeper soul disco on Prelude. Titles include "Make It Soon", "Let Me Untie You", "Make Me Loose", "You've Got It All", "Your Loving Is Tasty", "Came Down Hard On Me Baby", "Start My Motor", and "Firepower". CD

New Kim FowleyInternational Heroes (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Kim Fowley's best records as an artist – and way up there in greatness with some of the best he produced for everyone else, too! '73's International Heroes was Kim's second album for Capitol Records, and unlike the strange, underground rock vibe on his first Capitol effort, this one has a far more ambitious production aesthetic. It's a cool mix of trashy and rambunctious rockers, with more adventurous acoustic instrumentation at times. Kim's vocals are as great here as they'd ever be – not nearly as gruff as on I'm Bad – and sweetened even more here by some groovy backing vocals. We REALLY love this record! Includes "International Heroes", "ESP Reader", "Ugly Stories About Rock Stars And The War", "I Hate You", "Born Dancer", "World Wide Love", "Dancing All Nite" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
