Mitty CollierShades Of Mitty Collier – The Chess Singles 1961 to 1968 ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
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".

Martha BassI'm So Grateful ... LP
Checker, 1966. Very Good+ ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – very nice! Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ VariousSoul Allnighter – Don't Stop Now ... CD
25 Records (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
A German take on the Allnighter theme – but one that gets it pretty darn right, and which even manages to break past some of the more obvious modes of Northern Soul compilations! Although a number of the artists are familiar here, the tunes themselves have a great sense of variety – making the collection more of a wide-ranging soul set than anything else – although still with plenty of groove to win over an Allnighter dancefloor! Modern, psychedelic, pop, and deep soul sit nicely next to Northern styles – and the 20 track collection is a surprising fresh little set. Titles include "What Does It Take" by Hearts Of Stone, "Cuchy Frito Man" by Claus Ogermann, "Dead End Street" by Clara Ward, "My Babe" by Mitty Collier, "Use Your Head" by Mary Wells, "Don't Stop Now" by The Originals, "For This I Thank You" by Gino Parks, "Oh What A Feeling" by Tommy Tucker, "Too Much Lovemakin" by Gloria Scott, "Birth Of A Playboy" by The Chosen Few, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Be Careful If You Can't Be Good" by Laura Lee, and "Just Give Me One Good Reason" by Maxine Brown.

✨✧ VariousWilliam Bell Presents Atlanta Soul – The Peachtree Records Story ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $13.99
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.

✨✧ VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The music of Otis Redding – sung by some of his hippest contemporaries, and by a whole new generation inspired by his talents! The tunes here are all numbers you'd know from Redding's famous recordings for Stax and Atlantic – yet the versions are nice and fresh – some done with a gritty down-home feel that's rougher than any of Redding's records, others done with an inventive style that pushes the music forward into new modes – possibly those that Otis might have explored on his own, had he not been taken from us so soon! The package is a great testament to the Otis Redding legacy in soul music – and is filled with a whopping 25 tracks, all of them well-chosen – including "Baby Cakes" by Maxine Brown, "Just One More Day" by Clarence Carter, "Give Away None Of My Love" by Buddy Miles, "Wholesale Love" by Arthur Conley, "Hawg For You" by Tina Britt, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Chained & Bound" by Bettye Swann, "I'm Missing You" by Mitty Collier, "Sister Pitiful" by Judy Clay, "These Arms Of Mine" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Monkey On My BacK" by Jackie Hairston – plus the previously unreleased "Loving By The Pound (part 2)" by Otis Redding himself!
