James WellsMy Claim To Fame ... CD
AVI, 1978. Used ... $5.99
The first album from Chicago soul singer James Wells – an artist with vocals that often run much deeper than some of his disco contemporaries at the time, and which really get a showcase here on some of the longer songs! There's often a lot of disco at the start of the records – long tunes that build the rhythms slowly, then layer in other elements before the vocals – but when James emerges on vocals, things really take off – and the singer is very well suited to the more upbeat backgrounds. Ian Levine – of UK Northern Soul fame – wrote and arranged the set – and titles include "I Guess That's Life", "True Love Is My Destiny", and "That's The Way The Wind Blows". CD

✨✧ James WellsMy Claim To Fame/Explosion – Disco Recharge (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A pair of lost club classics from James Wells – back to back, with a lot of bonus tracks too! My Claim To Fame is the first album from Chicago soul singer James Wells – an artist with vocals that often run much deeper than some of his disco contemporaries at the time, and which really get a showcase here on some of the longer songs! There's often a lot of disco at the start of the records – long tunes that build the rhythms slowly, then layer in other elements before the vocals – but when James emerges on vocals, things really take off – and the singer is very well suited to the more upbeat backgrounds. Ian Levine – of UK Northern Soul fame – wrote and arranged the set – and titles include "I Guess That's Life", "True Love Is My Destiny", and "That's The Way The Wind Blows". The second album is an Explosion of soul from singer James Wells – and a tight follow-up to his previous disco outing with Ian Levine! Wells has roots in older soul styles than disco – and really makes his presence felt here on some of the album's best tracks – even amidst the sometimes stronger focus on high-stepping rhythms, percussion jams, and other instrumentation. Tracks include "Explosion", "More To Me Than Meets The Eye", "Double Dose Of Love", "There's Nothing Sweeter Than Success", and "A Case Of Mistaken Identity". CD features loads of bonus tracks – not just remixes, but a 12 completely different numbers, including a few duets with Susen Wells. Titles include "RSVP", "Baby I'm Still The Same Man", "All I Ever Need Is Music", "No Cure For Me", "Never Let Go", "My Days Are Numbered", "Great Minds Think Alike", and "Mirror Image". CD

✨✧ Junior WellsBlues Hit Big Town ... LP
States/Delmark, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some of the first recordings ever from Chicago legend Junior Wells – made for the small States label in the Windy City, many years before Wells exploded out with much greater national fame! The music here has Junior stepping into the same early electric space that Chess Records was cutting at the time – and given the presence of Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon on some of these sides – the group's also not far off either! Wells is the main star throughout, though – alternating bold young vocals and razor-sharp harmonica lines – in the company of players who include Louis Myers, Elmore James, and Muddy Waters on guitar, Johnnie Jones and Otis Spann on piano, Willie Dixon on bass, and Odie Payne on drums. Titles include "Hoodoo Man", "Tomorrow Night", "Eagle Rock", "Junior's Wail", "Throw This Poor Dog A Bone", "So All Alone", "Blues Hit Big Town", and "Lovin Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJukebox Fever Vol 2 – 1957 (10" LP with bonus CD) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1957. New Copy ... $21.99
A flurry of fantastic sounds from that magical musical year of 1957 – a time when rock and roll was taking off, hillbilly combos were really kicking ass, and R&B still had a hell of a lot to offer! The album presents a dozen tracks, almost as if you were pulling out the best singles from some backroom jukebox in a hip 50s tavern – and the package follows the previous strong sense of unusual tracks and genre-hopping sounds that we love from the Stag O Lee label – an imprint that's never one to categorize or pigeon hole music in tiny little slots – but instead really loves the way it sounds when it explodes together like this! Titles include "Chained" by Skeeter Bonn, "Anyway" by Wesley Hardin & The Roxters, "Rock N Roll Mama" by Roy James, "Party Line" by Haskell May & The Sundowners, "Living Too Fast" by Ray Andreson, "Hold Out Baby" by Teddy McRae, "Bongo Boy" by Danny Andrew, "Indeed I Do" by Vincent Maloy, "Heart Of A Fool" by Jesse Lee Denson, and "Lovey Dovey Lovely One" by Junior Wells. Also features bonus CD of the whole album – and 5 more bonus tracks! LP, Vinyl record album
