✨✧ Joe Henderson/The Fairfield FourSnap Your Fingers ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's not Joe Henderson the saxophonist, but a great singer with a really magnificent voice – served up here in a huge collection of his early work! The set begins with the record Snap Your Fingers – a classic album from the early years of soul music – the only full length set ever served up by the great Joe Henderson – a vocalist with roots in the legendary Fairfield Four gospel group, but sounding equally great here in a secular mode! The arrangements are by Cliff Parham, and they've got this blend of bluesy vocals and jazzier backings – in a style that's very much like the best Duke/Peacock work of the time – with a spectacular focus on Joe's voice in the lead! The whole album's great, filled with unusual material – with titles that include "Sad Teardrops At Dawn", "Right Now", "Big Love", "Just Call Me", "Snap Your Fingers", "After Loving You", and "If You See Me Cry". The set then moves into some great additional singles, plus lots more gospel material cut with The Fairfield Four – most of it from the rare album The Bells Are Tolling, originally issued on the Old Town label. Additional cuts include "I'll Be So Happy", "The Searching Is Over", "My Hands Are Tied", "Love Me Sweet", "Lord You Know", "Memories", "What Are They Doing In Heaven", and "All Day Every Day".

Marie KnightGospel Train – The Marie Knight Story 1946 to 1962 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
The were plenty of singers who made the transition from gospel music to secular sounds during the 60s soul years – but Marie Knight followed that path a generation before – by starting out with some superb gospel material in the late 40s, then moving more strongly into R&B during the following decade! That long journey is served up beautifully in this set – which pulls together singles that Knight cut for a wide variety of labels – Mercury, Baton, Carlton, Decca, Okeh, and others – in settings that include gospel groups, small combos, and even few duets with other singers too. Throughout it all, Marie's got a hell of a voice that just gets better as the years go on – very adaptable to new material, and always full of feeling, on titles that include "I'll Let Nothing Separate Me From The Lord", "I Can't Sit Down", "Look At Me", "I'm The Little Fooler", "Gospel Train", "My Journey To The Sky", "Up Above My Head", "Precious Memories", "Trouble In Mind", "Stand The Storm", "Who Rolled The Stone Away", "I Thought I Told You Not To Tell Them", "I Was Born Again", and "Grashopper Baby".
