✨✧ DriftersSave The Last Dance For Me/Good Life With The Drifters ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1961/1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 rare albums by this legendary soul group – back to back on one CD! Save The Last Dance features the classic Lieber-Stoller groove that the group was using in the early 60s – after singer Ben E King went solo, and the group started to hit a nice Latin-inflected beat. The title cut "Save The Last Dance" is one of their all-time hits – but the record's got a huge amount of other excellent soul cuts, like "Mexican Divorce", "Some Kind Of Wonderful", "Nobody But Me", "Room Full Of Tears", "I Count The Tears", and "Somebody New Dancin With You". The Good Life features the Drifters heading towards an easy soul groove, and features lots of soulful renditions of pop and standard tunes. Ray Ellis arranged, and the group runs through tracks like "Quando Quando Quando", "More", and "The Good Life". Different than their usual soul stuff, but with a great uptown soul sound, nonetheless. The LP also includes one hit single, their great "Saturday Night At The Movies", with arrangements by Teacho Wiltshire. 24 tracks on the entire CD! CD

CadillacsCrazy Cadillacs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. Used ... $11.99
A killer from the legendary Cadillacs – maybe our favorite group on the east coast scene of the late 50s, and one of the few we can really depend on for a wonderful sense of range! The Cadillacs have a power that matches some of the bigger names of the time, especially The Drifters on Atlantic – and although the group were best known for their upbeat gimmicky tracks, they're also tremendous on ballads – of which there are a good number here! Production is nice and raw – with an especially noteworthy lack of instrumentation when things get mellow – and titles include "Gloria", "Don't Be Mad With My Heart", "Window Lady", "Carelessly", "Let Me Explain", "My Girl Friend", "Shock A Doo", "Zoom Boom Zing", and "Broken Heart".

✨✧ VariousAtlantic Rhythm & Blues – 1947-1974 (8 CD box set) ... CD
Atlantic, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 8CDs ... $59.99
Here it is, the mother of them all! The set's got 8CDs worth of killer soul, funk, and Rhythm & Blues – all culled from the rich history of the Atlantic records label, and lovingly put together with great notes and everything! Although this sort of set usually tends to be a bit simplistic, this box actually features a beautiful mix of tracks, lots of which are hard to get in any format. It's a lot to go through, but it's worth the trip – and this LP version just about never shows up anymore! We can't even begin to list the tracks here, there's 203(!) of them in all, but some of the artists include the Bar Kays, the Beginning of the End, Archie Bell & The Drells, Ruth Brown, Solomon Burke, the Capitols, Clarence Carter, the Chords, the Cookies, Don Covay, King Curtis, Tyrone Davis, the Drifters, Roberta Flack, King Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Major Harris, Donny Hathaway, the Ikettes, Willis Jackson, Nat Kendricks & The Swans, Barabra Lewis,the Mar-keys, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, Stick McGhee, Otis & Carla, the Persuaders, Percy Sledge, The Spinners, Willie Tee, Joe Tex, Chuck WIllis, Betty Wright and loads more!
