Geater DavisLost Soul (with download) ... LP
House of Orange/Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 19.98
An incredible collection of work from the vastly-overlooked Geater Davis – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! Geater Davis is a tremendous singer from the south – but one who barely ever got his due back in the 70s – even though these recordings for the tiny House Of Orange label are every bit as amazing as work coming out for bigger labels like Stax or Hi Records! Although Davis didn't record nearly as much as his contemporaries, he's got a sound that matches or beats them – a raw, raspy quality that's a bit like Bobby Blue Bland, touched with the depth of feeling we love in James Carr, peppered with elements of other Memphis singers – all produced to perfection with a sound that's got a deep-burning soul that never lets up. This excellent collection features all tracks from Geater's rare album Sweet Woman's Love, plus additional singles from the time – all produced by Allen Orange, an overlooked genius in the southern studio scene of the 70s. Titles include "Don't Marry A Fool", "Cry Cry Cry", "I Love You", "I Know My Baby Loves Me", "I Can Hold My Own", "Cold Love (long version)", "I'll Get By", "I'll Play The Blues For You", "Breath Taking Girl", and a killer long take on "For Your Precious Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Roscoe SheltonMusic In His Soul – Soul In His Music ... LP
Sound Stage 7, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A southern soul treasure – the only full album we've ever seen by Roscoe Shelton, an excellent singer with a sound that should have made him huge! Roscoe's got a deep and bluesy approach to the vocals, and he really knows how to build a tune with a slow, sad, soulful approach – sometimes with a vibe that's a bit like Bobby Blue Bland at his best, with this complicated mix of phrasing that really stands out from some of his contemporaries! Most of the songs on the set are original numbers, and titles include "You're Living too Fast", "Love Comes and Goes", "The Fire Still Burns", "Easy Going Fellow", and "Who Walks In (When I Walk Out)". LP, Vinyl record album

OV Wright8 Men & 4 Women ... LP
Back Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An early high point in the career of OV Wright – the kind of "cut above" work that really got him noticed right away – a subtle blend of soul, blues, and more sophisticated styles – a bit like Bobby Blue Bland at his best, but sung in a much more sweetly soulful tone! The backings are great – rich and full of feeling, and never in a cliched sort of way – and the tracks are all great too – mostly lesser-known numbers that get past too-familiar southern soul standards. Titles include "Eight Men & Four Women", "Why Don't You Believe Me", "Don't Want To Sit Down", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "Bachelor's Blues", "If It's Only For Tonight", and "You've Been Crying". LP, Vinyl record album
