VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Rock Me Mama! – 28 Killer Diller Louisiana Tracks ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer cuts from the farthest reaches of the Louisiana scene in the early years of rock and roll – and exactly the kind of material that shows why that state was such an influential one at the time! The music here isn't just familiar rockabilly or crossover hits – and instead has this very deep, dirty vibe that brings together earlier blues, R&B, and even jazz elements – the kind of swampy mix that informed the groove in New Orleans soul, heard here with equal complexity in a range of really raw rockers! Piano triplets, snapping drums, and soulful tenor lines abound – and along with the very well-done notes, and a number of never-issued tracks, the whole thing works like some window into a lost corner of the southern scene of the time. Titles include "Bad Luck" by Danny, "Switch Blade Sam" by Jeff Daniels, "Gonna Work" by Richard Bros, "You're Jealous" by Jivin Gene, "You're Happy Now" by Little Carol, "Bayou Boogie" by Bennie Fruge, "She Left Me" by Al Ferrier, "Rock Me Mama" by Ken Lindsay, "Havin A Whole Lotta Fun" by Johnny Jano, "Rockin Fever" by Joe Carol & The Dukes Of Rhythm, and "Mama Look What Your Little Boy's Done" by Warren Storm.

✨✧ VariousHey Baby – The Rockin South – 30 Rockabilly & Rock N Roll Gems From The Legendary Excello Records ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer collection of rare early rock work from the legendary Excello label – a famous southern imprint who cut some excellent blues, gospel, and soul in the 50s and 60s – and who did a surprisingly great job with rockabilly too! The track selection here is superb – very sharp-edge numbers that pack the same heavy punch as Excello's soul catalog – and which really reflect their "ears to the ground" approach on the southern scene at the end of the 50s – with an especially strong focus on Tennessee tracks and raw sounds from Louisiana. The sound quality and notes with the set are great – and the CD features 30 titles that include "Tell Me" by The Trends, "Honey Bee" by Tommy Angel, "Troubles Troubles" by Warren Storm, "Trapped" by Billy Fortune, "Havin A Whole Lot Of Fun" by Johnny Jano, "Hey Baby" by Al Ferrier, "Big Hearted Joe" by Lindsey Brothers, "Somebody Clipped Your Wings" by Don Haggard & The Sunset Drifters, and "Werewolf" by Gary Warren.

✨✧ VariousSouth Texas Rhythm & Soul Revue Vol 2 – From The Vaults Of Crazy Cajun Records ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great state of Texas turned out plenty of soul records in the 60s – and some of the best of them came from the hands of Huey P Meux – the legendary talent who's responsible for all the work on this set! Huey was also known as the Crazy Cajun – also the name of a label on which some of these cuts appeared – and his work shares a bit of the deeper, swampier sounds you might expect from Louisiana soul of the time, mixed with the rich bluesy currents that Texas had been turning out since the postwar years! The result is some stellar music that never fully got its due back in the day – tracks that maybe had a bit of regional fame, but never hit as big as sounds from Memphis or Muscle Shoals, which makes this collection such a great discovery – rare tracks by Texas artists, and other talents who were pulled down near the Houston scene for these recordings – all presented in a set of well-chosen tracks with some mighty nice notes. Titles include "Too Good To Be True" by The Traits, "Half A Man" by Charles Berry, "The Bad Times Make The Good Times" by Warren Storm, "T'Ain't It The Truth" by Jean Knight, "Strange Love" by Eugene Gamble, "All About Love" by Big Sam, "I'm Losing You" by Henry Moore, "Total Disaster" by Lee Maye, "At Your Wedding" by Jackie Paine, "You're Losing Me" by Jo Jo Benson, "Spunky Onions" by Johnny Adams, and "The Pleasures Of My Woman" by Rocky Gil & The Bishops.

VariousBlues For Dootsie – The Blue & Dootone Sides ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. Used ... $9.99
A treasure trove of rare postwar blues from the west coast – material cut for Dootsie Williams, best known as the head of the seminal Dootone label in LA! The set offers both tracks from Dootone and Williams' rarer imprint Blue – the latter of which existed from the late 40s into the early 50s, and featured a fair bit of excellent material done in the more laidback bluesy mode of LA after the war – styles popularized by Charles Brown, Cecil Gant, and others – echoed strongly in many of the performances here. As the set rolls on into the later 50s, some of the tracks pick up a bit more of an R&B sound – but the work is still relatively unified here, thanks to a good focus on the more blues-based work on Dootone. 30 tracks in all, plus some really great notes – all at the usual high Ace level! Titles include "Rent Day" by Stormy Herman, "Richmond Blues" by Betty Hall Jones, "West Coast Baby" by Johnny Taylor & His Mellow 5, "I Got A Country Girl" by Bobby Nunn, "Everybody's Jumpin Tonight" by Dootsie Williams & His Rhythm Kings with Joe Turner, "You'd Better Come Home Baby" by Violet Hall, "The Hole In The Wall" by Cleo Brown, "Are You Ready To Go Steady" by Paul Monday, and "Katy Lee" by Fats Gaines.

A HUGE collection of rare rockabilly, surf-styled instrumentals, proto garage stormers and other lost treasures from the late 50s and early 60s scenes in Michigan – wild numbers from regional indie labels like Fortune, Nu-Sound, Oasis, Bel-Mar, Happy Hearts, Thumb and many more – with 332 tracks on 10 CDs!

VariousSound Of The Grapevine Vol 2 – 24 Modern Soul Dancers ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
Sublime soul from the genius compilers at Grapevine Records – an assortment of southern and modern soul tunes that all move along at a fairly nice little clip – dancefloor oriented, but not in a disco or club sort of approach. The groove here is really wonderful – honest, heartfelt, and warm – a nice change from the more upbeat approach of Northern Soul compilations, and done with a richness that features loads of great bits from the Chicago scene on down to the deepest south. At 24 tracks in all, the collection's really overflowing with great music – a heck of a bang for your buck, with a huge amount of tracks we've never seen elsewhere! Titles include "Alone Again" by Ernest Baker, "It's You" by Sex, "You Don't Know" by Bettye Jean Plummer, "Good Old Days" by The Jones Brothers, "Yesterday Today & Tomorrow" by Johnny Moore, "Leaving (radio edit)" by Bobby Cutchins, "Long Hard Road" by Bobby Wayne, "Love Stormy Weather" by Melvin Brown & James Matthews, "Man Can't Be A Man" by Bill Coday, "Love Bandit" by Patti & The Lovelites, "I'll Let You Slide" by The Saints, "I Kept On Smilin" by Cal Brandon, and "Nice & Slow" by Norma & The Heartaches.
