✨✧ BobbettesWe Shot Mr Lee ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A group who are best known for one huge hit in 1957 – but one who also recorded a fair bit of other wonderful material too – not just their early singles for Atlantic Records, but also a lot of material for other companies too – as you'll hear in this collection that brings together singles for King, Jubilee, Triple X, End, and other labels too! Although a girl group, The Bobbettes have lots of nice rough edges that are more R&B and deep soul overall – hardly the sweet pop of groups that would follow them in the 60s, and instead maybe a group expression of some of the modes that Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker were cutting for Atlantic – with maybe some of the energy of the doo wop groups thrown in for good measure. CD features 31 tracks – titles include "Speedy", "Zoomy", "Untrue Love", "I Shot Mr Lee", "Mr Lee", "I Don't Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)", "Mr Johnny Q", "Looking For A Lover", "Mama Papa", "Over There", "Loneliness", "I Cried", "Um Bow Bow", and "The Dream".

Little Esther (Esther Phillips)Memory Lane – The Best Songs Little Esther Ever Recorded ... CD
King, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $7.99 9.99
Fantastic early work from Esther Phillips – recording here as a young girl, under the name of Little Esther – but with a voice that's every bit as great as on her 60s recordings for Atlantic, or her 70s hits on the CTI/Kudu label! The music is a mixture of R&B and blues – the latter infused with some larger charts that already show the kind of class that would set Esther apart from so many of her contemporaries – and make the vocalist a key bridge between generations during the years that soul music would search for more sophisticated sounds. The vibe is very much in the best styles that Lavern Baker was recording for Atlantic – with a similar richness in modes – and titles include "Sweet Lips", "The Storm", "I Paid My Dues", "Heart To Heart", "Cherry Wine", "Aged & Mellow", "The Deacon Moves In", "Tell Him That I Need Him", "I'll Be There", "Street Lights", "Mainliner", and "Ring A Ding Doo".

VariousR&B & Classic Soul Vol 1 – Workin Man's Songs From The Cellar Of Soul – 1954 to 1962 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
Deeply soulful sounds from a crucial time in music – that late 50s/early 60s stretch when R&B was merging into soul, and created so many wonderful records in the process! The set's filled with quick-stepping groovers that are on the hip side of the spectrum – tunes that might have a jazzy inflection here, or a skittish rhythm there – and always topped by a fantastic singer who really knows how to belt it out of the park! These are the same sort of gems we've been digging on Jazzman's Jukebox Jam series – and titles include "Screaming Please" by Buddy Ace, "Anytime" by Dee Irwin, "Where's My Money" by Willie Jones, "For This I Thank You" by Geno Parks Lovetones, "It's Alright" by Art Lassiter, "You Don't Have To Go" by Sam Myers, "A Help Each Other Romance" by Lavern Baker & Ben E King, "Miss You So" by Lillian Offitt, "Workin Man's Song" by The Falcons, and "Sally Lou" by Little Frankie Edwards.
