Mitty CollierI Had A Talk With My Man ... CD
Blue City, Mid 60s. Used ... $4.99
One of the greatest Chess soul albums of the 60s! Mitty first started out recording gospel – and later went back to it – but this excellent album for Chess features Mitty stepping out in a deep soul style that's different than some of the other Chicago singers of the 60s. There's certainly a gospel finish to the work – as Mitty's vocal range is incredible, and steeped in a spiritual approach to the material – but the arrangements also have a classy touch to them, and almost push Mitty into uptown soul territory, making for a really compelling mix of styles. Titles include the secularized gospel tune "I Had A Talk With My Man Last Night", plus "My Babe", "No Faith, No Love", "Together", and "Let Them Talk". CD

Mitty CollierShades Of Mitty Collier – The Chess Singles 1961 to 1968 ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
A mighty helping of music from the overlooked Mitty Collier – a 60s soul singer on Chess Records, and one who was every bit as great as bigger label stars like Etta James or Fontella Bass! Like both of those singers, Mitty's got a voice that grabs you right from the get-go – a deeply soulful approach to her music that's really fresh and without cliche – especially considering she got her start belting out tunes years before some of the bigger names in 60s female soul, and managed to keep things mighty real all the years she was working at Chess. Production and arrangements here are all top shelf – handled by Phil Wright, Riley Hampton, and others – and the CD offers up 24 gems from Mitty's years at Chess – the a-sides of all 15 singles cut for the label, plus 9 more great tunes from the flips! Titles include "Everybody Makes A Mistake Sometimes", "Gotta Get Away From It All", "I've Got Love", "I Had A Talk With My Man", "Walk Away", "My Party", "Sharing You", "That'll Be Good Enough For Me", "Git Out", "Watching & Waiting", "Like Only Yesterday", "No Faith No Love", "I'm Your Part Time Love", and "Miss Loneliness".

Mitty CollierWarning ... LP
III A.M., 1972. Very Good- ... $38.99
A beautiful album by Chicago soul great Mitty Collier! The records is a gospel album, but it's produced with a style that's very similar to Mitty's classic Chess work. Mitty's backed by a little combo led by organist Charles Pikes, who also wrote many of the tracks on the record with Mitty. Includes a great version of "I Had A Talk With God Last Night", which Mitty sung for Chess in a secular version, plus "The Warning", "In The Garden", and "He's My Light". Fantastic cover, too – with Mitty pointing ominously to an image of the world in flames! LP, Vinyl record album

Martha BassI'm So Grateful (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
Checker/Righteous (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the most soulful gospel albums ever issued by Chess – the debut of singer Martha Bass, and a set that can almost stand up to other 60s label classics by artists like Mitty Collier or Fontella Bass! Gene Barge handles the arrangements, and things are nice and lean – just a bit of piano or organ vamping along with rhythm, but mostly letting Martha's vocals sing out loud and proud in the lead – with a bold, righteous style that hardly ever needs any other sort of accompaniment! Titles include "I'm So Grateful", "What Manner Of Man Is This", "Be Still", "I'm Getting Nearer My Home", "Mother's Plea", and "Everybody Will Be Happy". CD also features full stereo and mono mixes of the album! CD

Genius work from one of the greatest Southern Soul studios ever – Muscle Shoals' legendary Fame Studios – the start of a huge wave of great music in the 60s, and a genre-changing sound that's still going strong today! The package is the best we've ever seen to look at Fame – not just a killer selection of the studio's music – 75 tracks that bring together rare singles, hits, and some lesser-known gems – but also a beautiful hardcover book, filled with pages and pages of great notes, vintage images, and more – really telling the unique take of Fame, producer Rick Hall, and all the mighty talents who helped make Muscle Shoals one of the most important sites for soul music in the 60s and 70s.

VariousReaching Out – Chess Records At Fame Studios ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Chicago meets Muscle Shoals – a monumental moment in late 60s soul that's never fully been given its due before! The set brings together work from the late 60s period in which Chicago's Chess Records issued a slew of incredible singles recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals – deep soul gems that have all the grit and power of the usual Chess Records material, but which have a different vibe – given the production by Rick Hall, and backing by the genius studio musicians at Muscle Shoals! Some of the names are ones you'd recognize from Chicago Chess recordings, and others are artists the label discovered in the south – and had Fame handle for them – which makes for a very nice mix of material. In true Ace/Kent style, there's also some unreleased tracks on the set – and the package features a total of 24 tracks that include "It's All Wrong But It's Alright" by Laura Lee, "Good To Me" and "Let's Do It Over" by Irma Thomas, "The Sidewinder" by Charles Chalmers, "Security" and "Don't Lose Your Good Thing" by Etta James, "You're Living A Lie" by Mitty Collier, "Come Back Baby" and "Reaching Out" by Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces, "Party Time" by Lee Webber, "Lean On Me" and "So Much Love" by Maurice & Mac, "Two In The Morning" by Charles Chalmers, and "Too Soon To Know" by Mitty Collier.

✨✧ VariousWilliam Bell Presents Atlanta Soul – The Peachtree Records Story ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous batch of southern soul tunes – all originally recorded for the obscure Peach Tree label in Atlanta – an imprint that was quickly lost to time, but who recorded work that was every bit as great as that coming out of Memphis and Muscle Shoals at the time! One factor in the label's high level of quality is the fact that it was started by Stax singer William Bell – obviously a keen eye for great talent, and an important force in helping Peach Tree pick some of the best undiscovered talent at the time! Most of the work on the compilation is by lesser-known Atlanta soul stars – all of whom are great, and most likely lesser-known because Atlanta didn't have the bigger label presence of other southern cities. The set also features a few rare tracks by Mitty Collier, a singer best known for her Chess work of the 60s – and the package features 20 tracks in all, plus some great notes. Titles include "Share What You Got", "Lovin On Borrowed Time", and "What Do You Want" by Mitty Collier; "The Shocker" by Peg Leg Moffett, "Malnutrition" and "Seven Day Lover" by James Fountain, "Let's Take A Look At Our Life" and "It Sure Would Be Nice" by Emory & The Dynamics, "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones & The King Casuals, "It's Not A Hurtin Thing" by Gorgeous George, "Things That A Lady Ain't Supposed To Do" by The Four Dynamics, and "You Hurt So Good" by Susie Rainey.
