Mitty CollierShades Of Mitty Collier – The Chess Singles 1961 to 1968 ... CD CD format
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 (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD CD format
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

VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $6.99
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!
