VariousAtlantic Rock & Roll (Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters/Ruth Brown/Joe Turner/Ray Charles/Lavern Baker/Ivory Joe Hunter) (6CD set) ... CD
Atlantic, Late 50s. New Copy 6CD ... $19.99 29.99
Don't think "rock & roll" – think R&B, or early soul – as the collection here brings together the kind of music that really helped put Atlantic Records on the map during the 50s! The set features six full albums that were originally designed as a way for the label to remind folks that the new rock sounds of the late 50s actually had their roots in the black music that the company did better than just about anyone else – kind of a genius marketing move, and a way to introduce a classic range of R&B singles to the growing album for a full length record. All these many decades later, the six albums in the Rock & Roll series from Atlantic have gone onto become classics – and all of them are presented here on CD, with original cover art, in one very nicely-priced package! You'll get six full albums that include amazing early harmonies from The Drifters plus solo work by Clyde McPhatter too, raw female soul from the amazing Ruth Brown, romping bluesy grooves from Joe Turner, some of the best work that Ray Charles ever recorded, the roots of country soul from Ivory Joe Hunter, and cool classy sounds from the great Lavern Baker. Over 70 tracks in all – and a great deal at this price! CD

✨✧ VariousPomus & Shuman Story – Double Trouble 1956 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at one of the key songwriting teams in American pop at the end of the 50s – Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman, two names who show up again and again in histories of early rock and soul music – but who rarely get the same recognition as some of their bigger contemporaries! This package does a great job of correcting that problem – by bringing together some of the greatest tunes ever from the pen of Pomus & Shuman, sung by some of the biggest American artists in a variety of genres – plus a number of other artists who have been lost to the shifting sands of time, but who sound equally great. The top-quality package features a huge amount of notes on the pair's lives and career – as well as a good number of photos and record images too – all supported by a set list of 26 tracks that include "Miss Rip Van Winkle" by The Tibbs Brothers, "I Ain't Sharin Sharon" by Bobby Darin, "It's Been Nice" by Marty Wilde, "His Latest Flame" by Del Shannon, "Angel Face" by Jimmy Darren, "Turn Me Loose" by Fabian, "Hey Memphis" by LaVern Baker, "Save The Last Dance For Me" by The Drifters, "First Taste Of Love" by Ben E King, "Stop" by Howard Tate, "Double Trouble" by Elvis Presley, "Seven Day Weekend" by Gary US Bonds, and "Suspicion" by Terry Stafford.

Ben E KingRise Of Ben E King – 1959 to 1963 ... CD
Atlantic/Contrast, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
A set that does a great job of opening up the early years of this wonderful soul singer – a collection that not only features Ben E King's initial solo classics, but also his incredible lead work with The Drifters – plus a pair of rare duets with Atlantic Records' R&B powerhouse Lavern Baker! King in The Drifters is wonderful – a different voice than previous star Clyde McPhatter, and one who really humanized the group – even when they were hitting a newer groove for the 60s soul generation – and Ben continued that mature, sophisticated style in his own music too – tracks that are able to sound heartbreaking, but completely in charge of their emotions too. King's maybe least familiar on the two duets with Baker – "A Help Each Other Romance" and "How Often" – but those cuts are also a great demonstration of his range as well. Other titles include "Dance With Me", "I Count The Tears", "Oh My Love", "Amor", "Young Boy Blues", "First Taste Of Love", "Brace Yourself", "Too Bad", "Don't Drive Me Away", "Walking In The Footsteps Of A Fool", "Tell Daddy", and "I'm Standing By".

Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 3 – 1965/1966 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1966. New Copy 2CD ... $49.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. Volume 3 is overflowing with amazing sounds from the heart of the 60s – rare 45rpm tracks by Atlantic stars, Stax artists, and a few lesser-knowns too. Titles include "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "Help Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Ray Sharpe, "Long Distance Love" by Ted Taylor, "Lonely Soldier" by Mike Williams, "How Can You Babysit A Man" by Ned Towns, "Keep Looking" by Solomon Bourke, "I'm Sorry" by Fred Lowrey, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Share What You Got" by William Bell, "Reputation" by The Four Shells, "Me & My Baby" by Mary Wells, "Got No One" by The Delcardos, "Weak Spot" by Ruby Johnson, "Good Love Bad Love" by Eddie Floyd, "Bingo" by Ned Towns, "I Had A Dream" by Johnny Taylor, "I Can't Take It" by Ray Sharpe, "You Can't Love Them All" by The Drifters, "Believe It Or Not" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, "Patch My Heart" by The Mad Lads, "She's The One I Love" by The Delcardos, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, "Help The Bear" by Ted Taylor, and "I Feel A Sin Coming On" by Solomon Burke.

✨✧ CardinalsCardinals Featuring Ernie Warren – Their Complete Recordings ... CD
Southern Routes, 1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever set we've seen dedicated to the overlooked doo wop genius of The Cardinals – a group that recorded for Atlantic Records in the same generation as The Drifters and The Clovers, but never received a full LP treatment by the label! We've always felt that lack is one of the reasons why The Cardinals never got the later exposure they deserved – because, as you'll hear here, they're a tremendous quintet – with especially sublime harmonies on the mellower numbers, which they make shine and sparkle in a way that rivals the early 50s best of The Orioles! Yet they're also pretty great on the groovers – able to move upbeat, but still retain the warmth of their vocals – really making them a perfect fit for Atlantic Records in the pre-soul years. The set includes all their recordings, and even includes a few rare demo tracks too – and titles include "I Won't Make You Cry Anymore", "The Bump", "Lovely Girl", "For A While", "Offshore", "Come Back My Love", "Under A Blanket Of Blue", "Wheel Of Fortune", "The Door Is Still Open", "I'll Always Love You", "The End Of The Story", and "One Love".
