The third volume in the La Noire series of high-spirited early 60s singles – incredible stuff that bridges the style of early rhythm & blues storm
ers to the raw soul scenes to come – with great cuts by Bobby Bland, The Ideals, Joe Simon, Betty Everett, Willie Hightower, ZZ Hill and more! It's pivotal material, though much of it is fairly obscure to the masses these days, culled from hard-to-find singles on Duke, Arke, Goldband, Soundstage, Venessa and other labels. A prime batch of early soul – with "Yield Not To Temptation" and "Honey Child" by Bobby Bland, a great version of "Don't Cry No More" by Travis Wammack, "The Power" by Johnny
Fuller, "Mojo Hanna" by The Ideals, "Whole Lotta Lovin" by The Contours, "Nobody But You" by Willie Hightower, "You Were Wrong" by ZZ Hill, "Just A Little Bit" by Tiny Topsy and more. 16 cuts in all.
