A treasure trove of southern soul – all pulled from the legendary Jewel and Paula record labels! The pair were part of the Louisiana mini-empire built by Stan Lewis, out of Shreveport – and the music offers a wonderful criss-crossing of styles at the time – partly because of the labels' work in blues and gospel as well, and partly because of Stan's literal placement at the crossroads between a few different southern music scenes! The package features some key hits, and even more well-chosen obscure numbers – the kind of soulful singles that always make every Jewel or Paula record well worth checking out. Titles include "You've Got Me Tamed" by Clay Hammond, "Guilty" by Jakie Day, "How Are You Fixed For Love" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Need Someone" by The Wallace Brothers, "Guess I'll Have To Take What's Left" by Little Charles, "Oh My Love" by The Objectives, "Sweet 94" by Buster Benton, "It Takes Two To Do Wrong" by Bobby Patterson, "Do You Feel The Same Way" by Tommie Young, "Dreaming Out Of Season" by The Montclairs, "I Want Everybody To Know" by Fontella Bass, and "Help Wanted" by Jessie Anderson. (CD case has a small cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Wonderful west coast vocal group work from Vernon Green & The Medallions – a group who were rooted in doo wop, but who also step out here with a sound that paves the way for plenty of soul as well! There was something different about some of these great LA groups from the 50s – a ... CD
