Sure, they were hitmakers – but we love these guys, and find them to be one of the most radical vocal groups of all time! Under the impeccable guidance of Lieber & Stoller, the group recorded some of the fiercest vocal numbers of the 50s – mixing incredibly soulful vocals with an almost cartoonish ability to conjure up little pictures with words. A dozen great numbers in all: "Poison Ivy", "Along Came Jones", "Down In Mexico", "The Shadow Knows", "I'm A Hog For You", "Charlie Brown", "Yakety Yak", "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart", "That Is Rock & Roll", "Young Blood", "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Searchin'". (80s pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An instant groove from King Curtis – and a record that's even more deeply soulful than some of his other Atlantic albums!

We Got A Thing
Atco/Karen, 1966. Very Good
An obvious follow-up to their big hit "Cool Jerk", but a great album of raw soulful tracks that puts this Detroit group right up there with the best of the 60s up-tempo harmony groups!

People, 1975. Very Good
One of the most fantastic albums by the JBs – a masterpiece of funky jamming, tight instrumentation, and that free yet tight style of the James Brown 70s years! The tracks are longer than on some of the earlier singles – especially the 8 minute jammer "(It's Not The Express) It's ... LP, Vinyl record album
