Classic Etta for Chess, yet largely overlooked In her canon! This is really strongly produced stuff – it's got its sweet moments, but there's plenty of heft and grit, too! It's the kind of material that works really well with her deep, soulful voice – and the female backing vocal arrangements suit Etta's lead perfectly. The tracklist here is rich with bluesy standards, though they're taken to grand heights by Etta – plus some great lesser known originals from the pens of the Chess writers. Titles include the storming, totally killer opener "Take Out Some Insurance", plus "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good", "I Think Its You", "Someone", "Weepers", "Hold Back My Tears", and "You're The Fool". This completely great Kent Soul CD edition comes with a full album's worth of bonus tracks – more early 70s work for Chess and Cadet of similar caliber. 10 bonus tracks in all: "The Love Of My Man", "The Sound Of Love", "WOMAN", "I Found A Love", "Tell It Like It Is", "I Never Meant To Love Him" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Storming soul groovers from Era Records – an LA label that was known for a host of different genres, but who managed to cut some marvelous Northern Soul in the mid 60s! Era's an under-tapped source for work of this nature – as evidenced by the number of previously-unreleased cuts on ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy
Glorious girl group pop, solo and group soul singles from the heart of the 60s – beautiful stuff that might have made a splash in their time, but didn't enter the eternal pop culture canon like some of the bigger hits of the day – and we couldn't be happier to have them in our lives all ... CD
Stax (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A long overdue collection of the Stax, Truth and Volt singles by The Newcomers – a largely under-appreciated sweet soul group from Memphis! While the Stax empire had broken so much stylistic and commercial ground on a number of levels in the preceding years, the sweeter vocal group style was ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Killer compilation of rare 45s from the Chess label, with many tracks by artists you know that weren't on LPs! The centerpiece is "Look At Me Now", by the young young Terry Callier, and other cuts include "Fat Boy Can Cry" by Billy Stewart, "I Just Kept On Dancing" by ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A bit blues, a bit soul, and very much in the bayou mode promised in the title – especially given that some of the tracks here have a bit of a zydeco flair too! The package is a great entry in this series exploring the undercurrents of Louisiana music – and really illustrates the way ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy
A windy city hero – the amazing Garland Green, a singer who makes us mighty proud we hail from Chicago! Garland's got an incredible style that few others can touch – partly schooled in the 60s iceman modes of Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson, with all the sophistication that might imply ... CD
Volt/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
An incredible package from the great Darrell Banks – a set that brings together his sublime Stax Records album, plus lots of rare bonus tracks too! The core record – Here To Stay – is incredible work from the great Banks – one of the few albums this genius Detroit soul ... CD
Chimneyville/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
A dynamite collection of southern soul singer King Floyd's early-to-mid 70s recordings for Chimneyville – and a badly needed one, too – shining a light on so many funk-steeped southern soul treasures! King Floyd is one of those great musical figures whose name isn't nearly as famous as ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy
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 ... CD
What Color Is Love
Cadet/Verve, 1973. New Copy
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier! Terry's rich mellow voice is mixed with superb arrangements from the Cadet studio team, with Charles Stepney at the head, and the result is completely sublime. The songs are longer than on earlier albums – ... CD
Avco/Clinck (Japan), 1972. New Copy
The coolest, funkiest, and most soulful set ever issued by Chakachas – a record that's way different than most of their Latin-based music – with a strong American funk vibe all the way through! There's still lots of percussion in the mix, but it's often used in ways that echo more of a ... CD
Avco/Clinck (Japan), 1973/1977. New Copy
Harmony soul heaven – and two great albums back to back in a single set! The initial Softones album is a stellar first set from The Softones – labelmates of The Stylistics in their early years, and a group who really share a similar sense of east coast harmony soul! There's a nicely ... CD
