✨✧ Big MaybelleBig Maybelle – The Okeh Sessions ... LP
Okeh/Columbia, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A bit blues, a bit jazz – and a singer with a style unto her own – the amazing Big Maybelle, one of the greatest artists to record for Okeh Records in the 50s! This well-done collection pulls together every single Maybelle recorded for the R&B powerhouse back in the day – a motherlode of great work that easily puts her right up there with Lavern Baker or Ruth Brown as one of the great female singers of the 50s. The package features a whopping 22 tracks in all – including many bits that get lost between the tracks in some of the too-sifted collections of her work from the time. Titles include "Maybelle's Blues", "Hair Dressin Women", "My Big Mistake", "Ain't No Use", "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "So Good To My Baby", "Gabbin Blues", "You'll Never Know", and "New Kind Of Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s UK pressing.)

✨✧ Walter JacksonIt's All Over/Lee Cross ... 7-inch
Okeh, Late 60s. Good ... $2.99
A crowning moment of the Chicago soul scene of the 60s! Nobody was better than Walter Jackson at Iceman soul – and no cut of his carried this off better than the sublime "It's All Over" – one of those incredible tunes that we never tire of hearing! "Lee Cross" is more uptempo and gimmicky, but still a hit for Walter! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some wear.)

✨✧ Walter JacksonWelcome Home – The Many Moods of Walter Jackson ... LP
Okeh, 1965. Very Good- ... $2.99
A sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine".

Walter JacksonFeeling Good ... LP
Chi Sound, 1976. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The first of six "comeback" albums that this great Chicago soul singer cut during his second wave of recording during the late 70s! Walter had originally done some amazing work with the great Carl Davis at the Okeh label during the mid 60s – and this album marks a return to their collaboration – this time at Davis' own Chi-Sound subsidiary of 20th Century Records. Jackson here takes all the smooth sophistication of his early days, and transforms himself into an adult singer of soul songs – taking a route similar to that travelled by singers like Jerry Butler or Lou Rawls at the same time. Like Rawls, the style doesn't always work – but when it does, it's great. Titles include "Love Is Lovelier", "Words", "Too Shy To Say", "Please Pardon Me (You Remind Me Of A Friend)", "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", and a remake of "Welcome Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Ted TaylorSomebody's Always Trying ... LP
Mr R&B (Sweden), Late 50s/Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A late 80's compilation of some of the greatest work ever recorded by Ted Taylor – done as a string of sessions in Chicago, New York, and Nashville for Okeh Records. Taylor's a singer with a wonderful voice – one that was more famously tuned towards bluesier work later in his career, but which is hear heard coming off an initial run in doo wop – in a mix of modes that includes both Chicago and southern soul styles! Production is by Carl Davis, Billy Sherrill, and others – and no matter what the setting Taylor's vocals are incredible – crackling with a sense of emotion and soul that made him one of the singers to match at the time, even if his Okeh years never yielded that many hits. 18 songs in all, including "Since You're Home", "Be Ever Wonderful", "Hold Me Tight", "She's A Winner", "That Happy Day", "Someday (I Know, I Know", "My Darling", "If It Wasn't For You", "Top Of The World", "Somebody's Always Trying", "Try Me Again", "It Ain't Like That No More", "You've Been Crying", "Dancing Annie", "So Hard", "You Give Me Nothing To Go On", "Can't Take No More", and "Long Distance Love".

✨✧ Major LanceGypsy Woman/Stay Away From Me (I Love You Too Much) ... 7-inch
Curtom, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Great lost work from Major Lance! This single was recorded with Curtis Mayfield for Curtom – and it's got a totally different sound than Lance's earlier work on Okeh. "Gypsy Woman" is a nice remake of the Curtis hit – done with a rumbling bass-heavy groove that's pure Curtom, and which changes the song nicely. The flipside's even better, though – and has a great hook that's really amazing, and which lets Lance show off his oft-overlooked vocal strength! 7-inch, Vinyl record
