✨✧ Oscar PerryLonesome Train – Best Of Oscar Perry Vol 1 – The Crazy Cajun Recordings ... CD
Edsel (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice work by Texas soul singer Oscar Perry – an underground talent of the Houston scene at Duke/Peacock Records, breaking out here on his own in a set of 19 mid 70s recordings. Perry's got a great voice that mixes blues and soul equally, in the manner of Bobby Blue Bland, Little Junior Parker, and some of his contemporaries on the scene – and the tracks on this set, originally recorded for Crazy Cajun Records, have Perry moving through a number of modes, from sweet southern soul, to mellow ballads, to some more topical material. Titles include "Three K's", "Building A Home (parts 1 & 2)", "Watergate", "Keeps Hanging On", "Can't Mend A Broken Heart", "Lonesome Train", "Best Thing I Ever Had", "Do The Honky Tonk", and "Once In A While".

✨✧ Oscar Perry/AscotsLet Me Grow Old With You/You're So Indifferent To Me Now ... 7-inch
Sundae Soul (Germany), 1975/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two rare deep soul tracks from the 70s – back to back on a single 45! "Let Me Grow Old" is Oscar Perry's reworking of a Lowell Fulson tune – done with a sweet electric guitar line that snakes through the track, almost in a Miami soul mode – topped with superb vocals from Perry that remind us again what an overlooked talent he is! The Ascots are wonderful on "You're So Indifferent To Me Now" – a groover with a nice midtempo stepper that snaps along in an easygoing groove – one that lets the lead set things up before the harmonies come into the mix and really keep the whole thing moving! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousWhere Southern Soul Began Vol 3 – 1957-1963 – History Of Soul ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99
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.

✨✧ VariousOn The Modern Side ... CD
Goldmine (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite compilations ever! This is a stunning set of rare 70's soul cuts with a slightly modern feel (but not too modern). Most of these tracks were rare singles by groups and artists who recorded for the sort of labels that don't really reissue their stuff regularly – labels like Casablanca, 20th Century, and Mercury. The selection's great, and the tracks include "I Don't Do This" by Sidney Joe Qualls, "Too Much Lovemakin" by Gloria Scott, "If You Want A Love Affair" by Jesse James", "He Sent Me You" by Oscar Perry, "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Once I've Been There" by Norman Connors, and more by Benny Troy, Joe Anderson, Skip Mahoney, Eddie Holman, and Brothers Guiding Light. Fantastic stuff, and one that we just can't stop listening to! CD
