✨✧ VariousBeach Beat ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Remember Beach music? Once upon a time we might have argued that was a more contemporary term for an older genre, like northern soul, but this mighty fine collection from the late 60s on Atlantic shows you the sound's been around for quite some time! A great soundtrack for the beach from the Carolina scene – sweetly loping grooves that got heavy play at summer resorts on the southern shores of the Atlantic! While not all the groups originated in the south, the music's gained a special place in the hearts of folks in the Carolinas, who've come to consider the music their own because of it's slightly stepping beat and gentle kind of groove! A dozen numbers in all, including "One Mint Julep" by the Clovers, "Searchin" and "Zing Went The tings Of My Heart" by the Coasters, "Think A Little Sugar" by Barbara Lewis, "CC Rider" by Chuck Willis, "Money Honey" and "Honey Love" by Clyde McPhatter & The Drifters, "Walking Up A One way Street" and "Thank You John" by Willie Tee,"There Goes My Baby" by the Drifters, "Just One Look" by Doris Troy and "Drinkin' Wine Spo Dee O Dee" by Stick McGhee. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBirth Of Soul – Special Detroit Edition 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Detroit soul scene at the start of the 60s – music from a time before Motown was dominating the city's reputation, and a whole host of other great labels brought the motor city sound to the masses! The work here is quite a surprise if you're only thinking in terms of Northern Soul and some of the more uptempo Detroit groovers – as the work here burns on so many different levels – often with a style that reflects some of the nascent soul coming out of Chicago on labels like Chess and Vee Jay, the latter of whom is featured here amidst a range of other imprints that include Wand, Atlantic, Scepter, Time, Old Town, and Brent – all of whom released some of these early Detroit soul tracks as singles back in the day. In true Ace/Kent fashion, the set also features a few unreleased gems, plus a wonderful set of notes on the city's soul scene – alongside tracks that include "Nosey Folk" by The Del-Phis, "Answer Me" by Vivian Collins, "Can't We Get Together" by Harry Reid, "Here I Am" by Betty Lavette, "Shakin Fit" by The Pyramids, "That's No Way To Spend My Time" by The Pen Ettes, "Wedding Bells" by Melvin Davis, "You Lied" by Marva Josie, "Think A Little Sugar" by Barbara Lewis, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "My Letter" by Priscilla Page, "I Know How It Feels" by Laura Johnson, "I'm A Lonely Guy" by Timmy Shaw & The Sternphones, "Come Back To Me" by La Wanda William, "I Cried For My Last Time" by The Sonnettes, and "Tears Running & Falling From My Eyes" by James Lately.

✨✧ Nelson Riddle/Jeannie C RileyHarper Valley PTA ... LP
Plantation, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty weird one – the soundtrack to the 1978 film that starred Barbara Eden, based on Jeannie C Riley's late 60s pop hit "Harper Valley PTA". Jeannie sings that song at the start of the set, and Nelson Riddle contributes a number of dreamy and disco-tinged instrumentals to give the set more of a 70s feel. A few other tracks have vocals too – like "Mr Harper" by Barbara Eden, "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen" by Johnny Cash, and "High School Confidential" by Jerry Lee Lewis – but the instrumentals are the most interesting. Titles include "Twin Tune", "Ice Cream Disco", "Dee's Visit", and "Alice's Place". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousLadies Of Detroit Sound Vol 1 ... CD
Bar, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
26 rare Detroit soul singles – all cut by the many lovelies who recorded in the city, but never got as big as some of the huge stars on the Motown label. That's a-ok with us, though, because these gals have a raw, honest quality that's really refreshing – and finding this set is like unlocking a treasure trove of a lost soul tradition. Titles include "Midnight Johnny" by Liz Lands, "Goodbye Cruel World" by Linda Griner, "Lonely Lonely Girl Am I" by The Velvettes, "You're Gonna Love My Baby" by Barbara McNair, "I Got A Feeling" by Barbara Randolph, "Baby Boy" by Juanita Williams, "Sweetheart Darling" by Rose Batiste, "I'm Spellbound" by Tamiko Jones, "Keep On Lovin Me" by Frances Nero, and "You Need Me" by The Lewis Sisters. CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

✨✧ Neal HeftiOh Dad Poor Dad – Mama's Hung You In The Closet/Boeing Boeing ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of swinging RCA soundtracks from Neal Hefti – back to back on a single CD! Oh Dad Poor Dad is great grooviness from Neal Hefti – working here at the height of his 60s powers! The film stars Robert Morse, Barbara Harris, and Jonathan Winters – and the score's got a 60s screwball approach that mixes organ, woodwinds, percussion, and bits of strings together, all filtered through Hefti's rich style of arrangement. The overall feel is great – with loads of mod mod numbers, dancing around with wonderful rhythms that fall somewhere between bossa and beat. Ttiles include "Boy Girl Calypso", "Into The Sunset", "Spooky Coffins", "Oh Dad Calypso", "The Revolt of Johnathan Rosepettie III", and "Home Movies". Boeing Boeing is a weird comedy directed by John Rich, and starring the unlikely team of Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis – plus some hotties as stewardesses! The best part, most likely, is this fab soundtrack by Neal Hefti – which has many great touches that result in some extremely groovy material! There's some especially nice numbers on the set that mix organ and guitar with larger backing, creating a sound that's much more like late 60s work by Piero Piccioni than Hefti's usual style. A few tunes are more serious, but overall, the soundtrack's a nice one – and is also graced by an excellent cover that sums up the goofy film with a nice cartoony image. Titles include "More Blues For Bertha", "Senor Boeing", "English Breakfast", "Frenchie", "Girl Chasin", and "Champagne Promises". CD

✨✧ Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Sealed ... $2.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".
