VariousWhere Southern Soul Began Vol 3 – 1957-1963 – History Of Soul ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
An excellent look at the sounds that gave birth to southern soul – that blend of blues, R&B, gospel, and other righteous sounds that were brewing below the Mason-Dixon line at the end of the 50s – which later rose to tremendous fame on labels like Stax and Atlantic! The tracks here are mostly from before a time when those labels focused on the music, though – and include a huge number of obscure singles we'd never heard before – all packaged with lavish notes on the music and full color images – clearly showing a lot more care to the presentation than you'd usually get for a collection of this nature. There's a whopping 55 titles in the set – and tracks include "The Wash" by The Varios, "Baby Come & Get It" by The Adorables, "Velma" by Roland Dice, "Everybody's Talking" by Bob & Peggy, "I'll Have To Let You Go" by Sally Stanley, "Goodbye My Love" by Oscar Perry, "I'm Cally My Baby" by Gene Vell, "Baby It's True Love" by Roscoe Shelton, "Why Not Give Me A Chance" by Jackie Verdell, "Keep On Trying" by Guitar Ray, "Bad Boy" by Fontella Bass, "Wait A Minute" by Barbara Stephens, and "Please Wait" by Charles James.

Julius Watkins featuring Hank MobleyJulius Watkins Sextet Vol 1 (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1955. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful early material by Julius Watkins – with a mix of hardbop and modernist jazz, in a style that's both dark and swinging at the same time. The group features Frank Foster on tenor, Kenny Clarke on drums, George Buter on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and the obscure guitaris Perry Lopez. There's only 4 tracks on the album – but they're all nice, and titles include "Perpetuation", "Linda Delia", "I Have Known", and "Leete". LP, Vinyl record album
