A great little set of rare soul singles from the Challenge label – recorded and released from 1963-1968 – with wonderful, too long forgotten numbers by Jimmy Seals, Ron Holder, Charles Lamont & The Extremes, Yvonne Carroll, Johnny Wyatt, Jimmy Walker and Jerry Fuller! Challenge was formed in the late 50s in partnership with country/
cowboy singer Gene Autry, but soon enough branched out stylistically, resulting in lots of cool, diverse records in the 60s! Nothing but great overlooked soul tunes here, mostly in an uptempo mode, with "The Yesterday Of Our Love", by Jimmy Seals, "I'll Forgive And Forget" by Ron Holden, Drown In My Broken Dreams" by Jimmy Walker, "Laugh Or Cry" by Yvonne Carroll, "Turn To Me" by Jerry Fuller (who also penned by back cover notes), "I've Got To Keep Moving" by Charles Lamont & The Extremes and more. 12 in all.
