✨✧ Bill DoggettHonky Tonk Popcorn ... LP
King, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky funky Hammond – a rare late 60s album from organist Bill Doggett, done with some help from James Brown – and a set that's unlike anything Doggett ever recorded before – or since! There's a blasting groove to the record right from the start – thanks to help from The James Brown Band on the leadoff cut – but even when they drop out, and Doggett's combo goes out on their own, the sound is still amazing – tight, soulful, and very much in a funky 45 style all the way through! Drums are hard, the organ is nice and fluid, and the sound is prime late 60s instrumental funk – a groove that Doggett never managed to reach again, which makes this record a real standout treasure. The album includes the legendary funky break cuts "Honky Tonk" and "Honky Tonk Popcorn", plus lots of other nice groovers, like "A Doozy", "Mad", "Slippin In", and "Corner Pocket".

Bill DoggettHonky Tonk/Honky Tonk Popcorn ... 7-inch
BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
Not the original "Honky Tonk" that first drove organist Bill Doggett to fame at the end of the 50s – but instead, a whole new version of the groove – recorded here with the James Brown Band at the end of the 60s, complete with funky drums that make both sides of the single into top-shelf instrumentals with a fierce popcorn groove! "Honky Tonk Popcorn" features lots of fuzzy guitar taking a solo – while the other cut has more organ in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Luiz Henrique & Walter WanderleyPopcorn ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1969. Used ... $6.99
An excellent collaboration between two of Verve's best Brazilian artists of the late 60s – the groovy organist Walter Wanderley, and the breezy breathy vocalist Luiz Henrique! The set is a perfect example of the way that Verve took bossa playing and gave it a groovy production twist – turning it into something that was just a little bit different, in a mode that became America's best contribution to the bossa era! The legendary Sivuca puts in a great guest appearance on a few tracks – further enhancing the sound with his "singing" style of accordion work – and the whole thing bounces along in a magical groove that's hardly been duplicated again! Titles include a very unusual funk-based take on "Happy Birthday" – one that has a bit of a break to it – plus "Kee Ka Roo", "Popcorn" (not the Perry-Kingsley hit), "Florianopolis", "In My Automobile", "Dusty Road", and "Blue Island".

VariousFollow Me To The Popcorn – The Untold History Of The Belgian Popcorn Scene ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful tribute to a music scene that got going in Belgium during the 60s, but which was completely fueled by American soul, jazz, and R&B – spun in jam-packed clubs by DJs in that nation's equivalent of the Northern Soul scene in the UK! Yet while Northern Soul has an upbeat, uptempo groove, popcorn has one that's a lot more laidback – often slinky and vamping, with a mode that might well have been birthed by the tune "Fever" – taken to hundreds of different directions, but always handled with an equally sinister vibe! Instrumentation is as important here as the vocals – and many tunes often have slight Latin or exotic touches, a slight current of jazz, and a rock-solid lead singer who holds the whole thing together. The notes tell the tale of the Belgian DJs who first hooked into this groove – but for our ears, it's the sound that makes the set – early soul music, late rhythm and blues, and some sweet jazzy moments that provide more than a bit of variety. Titles include "Spooky" by George Barnes, "Downstairs" by Plas Johnson, "I'd Think It Over" by Sam Fletcher, "You Need To Fall In Love" by Little Jimmy Ray, "Yeah My Baby Loves Me" by Dav Kipp, "It's A Sweet World" by Gloria Grey, "Fever" by Earl Grant, "Summertime" by Monty & The Cyclones, "I Want That" by Bobby Hendricks, "Harlem Nocturne" by JJ Jones, "Sweet Little Love" by Al Brown & His Tunetoppers, "Boss Bossa Nova" by Bellino, "I Dreamed About My Baby Last Night" by Lillian Vines, "Palm Of Your Hand" by Dolly Lyon, "Barricuda" by The Page Boys, and "Any Way You Wanta" by Harvey.

BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Great grooves in the classic popcorn soul mode – a special blend of R&B, jazz vocals, early soul, and outright pop – served up on tracks that have a really wonderful groove at the bottom! The popcorn sound is a midtempo stepping one – not as upbeat as Northern Soul, and often with a nice sort of slink in the groove, which lets in jazzier flourishes on the instrumentation, and some occasional Latin touches as well! DJ Jay Strongman's been spinning the music for years – and he's come up with a great selection of tracks that definitely fit the mode – a few familiar numbers, and lots more rare ones – titles that include "So What" by Ray Rush, "The Big Change" by Anna King, "Heartbreak Society" by The Radiants, "River Love" by Hillard Street, "That's Why I Cry" by Varetta Dillard, "I'll Be There" by Damita Jo, "Dreams Never Hurt Nobody" by Jesse James, "A Tear" by Patsie Slater, "Tell Him" by The Gainors, "I Should Have Loved You" by The Sierras, "How Much Land" by Frank Minion, "In The Palm Of Your Hand" by Dolly Lyon, "Now I Lay Me Down To Weep" by Simone Dina, and "You Got Me Crazy" by Lew Conetta.

VariousPopcorn Exotica – R&B, Soul, & Exotica Rockers From The 50s & 60s ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
Exotica sounds, but with an especially soulful feel – which makes the tracks a perfect choice for this excellent collection! The work is in a special place between exotic instrumentals, teen pop, and deeper soul of the late 50s and early 60s – and most numbers here have that special balance you'll find in the popcorn soul underground – the kind of midtempo steppers that have really been getting a lot of play on dancefloors in recent years – especially when you want to cool off a bit from Northern Soul! As with other titles on the Croydon Municipal label, the track selection is divine – and titles include "The Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton, "Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "Cafe Bohemian" by The Enchanters, "The Web" by Abie Baker, "Tabou" by The Jokers, "On A Tropical Island" by Anna Valentino, "Little Indian Girl" by Billy & The Moonlighters, "Cat Walk" by Jack Costanzo, and "Arabia" by The Delcos.

VariousSlow Grind Fever Vol 6 – Still More Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
The "sleazy" in the title is definitely well-put – as the music here has a vamping, slinking sound that's pure sex – circa 1960 – pulled from a cool array of rare soul, blues, and R&B singles from the time! We love this series, and it never fails to turn us onto something we've never heard before – and the tunes sometimes mix in some exotic touches that are very nice, the kind of vibe you'd expect from the "popcorn noir" promise on the front. Titles include "Hard Head (part 1)" by Jon Thomas, "Voodoo Drums" by Aki, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "Medicine Man" by Jeanette B Washington, "Backwoods" by Bill Doggett, "Voodoo Kiss" by Don Sargent & The Buddies, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Laugh My Heart" by Malcolm Dodds, "Comin Home" by Eddie Jacobs, and "Sinners" by Freddie & The Hitchhikers.

✨✧ VariousSlow Grind Fever Vol 7 – Even Further Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Slow grinders and lots lots more – a sweet set of raunchy little numbers from the years in which teen pop and rock and roll were taking over the mainstream – but still left lots of space for the creation of nasty little singles like these! As with previous volumes, the music is a mix of jazz, R&B, early soul, and more – some tracks by familiar names, others by obscure artists who may have only cut the single track you'll hear on this set! There's a nicely moody, past-midnight vibe to the record – and titles include "Mama's Place" by Bing Day, "Jack That Cat Was Clean" by Dr Horse, "Snake Walk (parts 1 & 2)" by Swinging Tigers, "Demon Lover" by Bob & Lucille, "I'm A Fugitive" by The Ravons, "Shadow Street" by Kip Tyler, "Death Powder Cold Steel" by Johnnie Morisette, and "Concrete Desert" by Jack Hammer.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Those slow grinders are at it again – giving us a heady helping of their "popcorn noir" genre – a style they seem to have coined themselves! The groove here is every bit as great as previous volumes – bits of jazz, R&B, and more – all served up from a host of cool, catchy singles you'd never hope to find in the original – and which work here perfectly to create a great late nite sort of vibe! Make no mistake, most of these numbers are groovers – just the kind that are a bit more kicked back, for post-midnight listening! CD features material from vinyl volumes 5 and 6 – 28 titles that include "Senor Blues" by Rose Hardaway, "Strange Is Love" by The Marquis, "Haunted Sax" by The Night Caps, "Tremblin" by Birdie Green, "Nature Boy" by The Shields, "My Baby" by Nappy Brown, "I Want A Lip" by April Stevens, "Comprende" by Hillard Street with Jack Marshall, "Satan Is Her Name" by Steve King & The Echelons, "Hard Head (part 1)" by Jon Thomas, "Voodoo Drums" by Aki, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "Medicine Man" by Jeanette B Washington, "Backwoods" by Bill Doggett, "Voodoo Kiss" by Don Sargent & The Buddies, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Laugh My Heart" by Malcolm Dodds, "Comin Home" by Eddie Jacobs, and "Sinners" by Freddie & The Hitchhikers.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The "exotic" in the title is certainly well-placed – as many of these tracks take a familiar instrument, and use it in a slightly unusual way – a saxophone, piano, electric guitar, or something else – often set to grooves that start out in an R&B, early rock, or jazz-based style, but move into much groovier territory too! Some of these numbers have the spirit of the cuts we love in the Jukebox Mambo series – and others draw in elements of postwar Latin or exotica styles – while still keeping things pretty soulful overall! CD brings together material from the long-deleted Katanga and Ahbe Casabe 10" vinyl releases – with tracks that include "Nene Aman" by Artie Barsamian, "Green Onions" by Claus Ogerman, "Classie's Whip"b y Classie Ballou, "Cleopatra Kick" by Jack LaForge, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloud, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Shadow Street" by Kip Tyler, "Cleopatra" by Jamie Coe, "Katanga" by Ike Turner, "Lucky Me" by Chance Hallyday, "Ahbe Casabe" by Marti Barris, and "Thirteen Women & One Man" by Dickie Thompson.

Raw soul, rare rock, and lots lots more – served up in this excellent volume of the Exotic Blues & Rhythm series! The collection's in all the great territory as previous entries – filled with weird, offbeat tracks that push past the obvious sounds from the end of the 50s – often thanks to slight exotic touches in the rhythms and instrumentation, which makes some of these tracks burn in a Jukebox Mambo sort of vibe – and some others have a more jungle-oriented approach to rockabilly! Tracks include "Lover's Hell" by Merle Kilgore, "Tears Baby" by Johnny West, "La Tanya" by Jay Abbott, "Deep Sleep" by Chance Halladay, "Got To Think It Over" by Oberia Martinez, "Timbuctu" by Billy Duke, and "Termites" by The Cords.

Popcorn (Belgium), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Fab 60s soul from a wealth of lesser-known gals – mostly artists who never cracked it big on the soul charts, but who really knew how to belt out a tune! The styles here run the gamut from uptown soul to Northern soul to bluesy soul – but the set's nicely united in a keen awareness for an unusual cut, and by a love of female vocals that crackle with honest intensity. 25 tracks in all – including "As Long As You're Mine" by Bette McLaurin, "Jackie Bobby Sonny Billy" by Linda Carr, "I Just Don't Understand" by Marcene Harris, "He'll Never Change" by Beverly McKay, "Hey Lover" by Debby Dovale, "Straighten Up" by Connie Questell, "The Headshrinker" by Johnnie Mae Matthews, "Sweet Talk" by Linda Carr, "Never" by Bette McLaurin, and "Lying Awake" by Benice Swanson.

There's a nice echo and a sweet groove to "Let Her Go" – a vibe that really lives up to the "popcorn" sound promised in the label – especially when this cool snapping bongo line comes in alongside Gene's vocals! Hal Waters sends it nicely on the flipside – a very cool take on this familiar tune – one that draws a lot from Hal's unique and sinister vocals, and some sweet bubbling Hammond on the bottom! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Campbell seems to have a male singer helping along, which gives the tune a mighty soulful vibe – and the flipside is another hip-strutting tune, with an upbeat slinky vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great popcorn soul from Marty Hill – a singer who might be pop in another setting, but who gets a very jaunty groove on the main cut here! "Oracle Of Love" romps along with these "rock orchestrations" that really push Hill's vocals – a fast-snapping snare at the bottom, and these weird quick violin lines that almost sound like they're crying! "Red Lips" has a similar vibe, and maybe rocks even more! 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownIt's A Mother ... LP
Polydor, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A definite mother from James Brown – the kind of all-funky album that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match! If you've ever doubted the sheer raw power of James at the end of the 60s, the first few notes of this one will definitely make you a convert – and the stretched-out grooves as the album rolls on will pull you even further into the fold. Most tracks roll on with that improvised studio jamming style that James was hitting at the time – a pre-JBs mode that's not as long as later years, but which still makes you feel that there probably was plenty more recorded on the dates that didn't make it into the two-part versions of the tracks! And although James is singing on most numbers, the real focus is more on the band – hitting hard, vamping sharp, and grooving massively under shouted calls and directions from Brown. Titles include two great instrumentals – "Popcorn With a Feeling" and "Top of the Stack" – plus "Little Groove Maker Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Mother Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Mashed Potato Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Any Day Now", "You're Still Out Of Sight", and "I'm Shook" – as well as the great mellower number "If I Ruled The World" – redone here as an African-American anthem of pride and power!

James BrownRevolution Of The Mind ... CD
Polydor, 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
An amazing double-live album that's to concert records what James Brown's Payback was to the sound of studio funk! Like that classic, this is a double-length 2LP set that really has James and the JBs stretching out and doing their thing – working here in a setting that's supposed to be the "part 3" to the famous Live At The Apollo albums – but with a vibe that really shows the different spirit of the Godfather in the 70s! The JBs are wonderful – really showing their chops here, in a way that maybe even blows the tightness of the previous James Brown Band to pieces – as the long tracks allow for plenty of solos, rhythm changes, and monstrous moments of soul from James. Brown also opens up with some cool bad-rapping moments, too – and titles include "It's A New Day So Let A Man Come In & Do The Popcorn", "Get Up Get Into It Get Involved", "Super Bad", "Sex Machine", "Escape-Ism", "Make It Funky", "Hot Pants", "Soul Power", and "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose".

Brown also opens up with some cool bad-rapping moments, too – and titles include "It's A New Day So Let A Man Come In & Do The Popcorn", "Get Up Get Into It Get Involved", "Super Bad", "Sex Machine", "Escape-Ism", "Make It Funky", "Hot Pants", "Soul Power", and "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose".

James BrownSex Machine ... CD
Polydor, 1970. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
James Brown cooking it live – recorded (as the cover says) "at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self"! The groove here is a nice extension of earlier Apollo modes – one that shows the increasing funkiness of the James Brown Band, captured with a raw power that few other groups could match – in a style that really paves the way for the James Brown/JBs sound of the 70s – with long tracks, and some killer fast versions of some of the best funky cuts from the late King Records years! The set includes a smoking 10 minute version of "Sex Machine" –plus other groovers like "I Got the Feeling", "Mother Popcorn", "Licking Stick", and a great version of "I Don't Want Nobody to Give Me Nothing".

Eddie CampbellTear This World Up ... CD
Delmark, 2009. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Great old school Chicago blues from Eddie Campbell – the kind of stripped-down set we might have heard from Delmark back in the 70s! Eddie's on both acoustic and electric guitar, mostly the latter – and sings with an easygoing, almost conversational style on most numbers – easing into the tunes as he might on the stage of a small club – with tight combo backing that includes piano, organ, harmonica, and a bit of horns on a few tracks. Titles include "Makin Popcorn", "Love Me With A Feeling", "Tie Your Time Up", "Voodoo", "All Nite", "Bluesman", "Care", "My Last Affair", and "I'm Just Your Fool". CD

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonHot Dog ... CD
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $7.99
From the title, to the cover, to the gritty grooves way down in the wax – this has got to be one of the funkiest Blue Note albums ever – a real landmark from the legendary Lou Donaldson! The set kicks off with a hard and heavy groove from the very first note – thanks to some super-tight drumming by a young Idris Muhammad – still billed under his birth name of Leo Morris on the sleeve, but already hitting the kit with that snapping post-Popcorn style that would revolutionize funky jazz in years to come! Donaldson's plenty smoking himself on electrified alto sax – played with that great mix of flatness and echo that you'd hear in Eddie Harris' albums of the same time – and the rest of the lineup is equally cooking, with Melvin Sparks on guitar, Charles Earland on organ, and Ed Williams blasting away on funky trumpet! Titles include killer remakes of "It's Your Thing" and "Who's Making Love" – plus Donaldson originals "Hot Dog" and "Turtle Walk" – all nice and long, and with a really raw sound! CD

✨✧ Gershon KingsleyMusic To Moog By ... LP
Audio Fidelity, Late 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
Moogy madness from Gershon Kingsley – one of his greatest albums apart from his work with Jean Jacques Perry! The set's arranged and conducted by Gerson – and features some of the best electric pop of the late 60s. The highlight here is the original version of "Popcorn" – a track that went onto make Kingsley a millionaire – not only for his hit version, but for the later, much bigger hit version by Hot Butter. Other tunes on the album have a similar feel – very tight, groovy, and realizing the best playful elements of early electronics. Titles include "Sunset Sound", "Trumansburg Whistle", "Twinkle Twinkle", "Sheila", "Hey, Hey", and "Scarborough Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul KuhnPaul Kuhn Originals Vol 2 – Big Hits Of The Big Bands/Pop Ala Swing ... CD
EMI/Jazzclub (Germany), 1972/1975. New Copy ... $8.99
Two albums by the Paul Kuhn SFB Big Band – back to back on a single CD! First up is Big Hits Of The Big Bands – a set that steps back to pick up classic large ensemble numbers from the 30s and 40s, but deliver them with a reworked 70s approach to a big band – from the way the instrumentation is laid out, to the top-shelf production in the studio! Paul gets help from UK trumpeter Jimmy Deutcher on some of the tracks – which makes them sound a bit more groovy than you might expect – and musicians include Kurt Weil on vibes, Ake Persson and Slide Hampton on trombone, Carmell Jones and Rolf Ericson on trumpets, and Leo Wright on alto! Titles include "Mr Anthony's Boogie", "Perfida", "Flying Home", "Skyliner", "Four Brothers", "Song Of India", and "Intermission Riff". Pop A La Swing is billed as "sounds of yesterday hits of today" – a reference to the way in which Kuhn's big band style serves to bring an old school vibe to the album's selection of contemporary tunes from the late 60s and early 70s! As with other Paul Kuhn ensemble sets, the group features an excellent lineup of European and American musicians – including Sigi Schwab and Philip Catherine on guitar, Eugen Cicero on piano, Robgert De Reijke on organ, and Leo Wright on reeds – plus the great Hans Rettenbacher on bass, whose bottom end work recalls some of his best MPS label accompaniment – and makes the rhythms a bit groovier than you might expect. Titles include "Taka Takata", "Close To You", "Goodbye My Love Goodbye", "Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Get Down", and a great big band take on Hot Butter's "Popcorn" – with very unusual instrumentation in place of the moog!

Jack McDuffDown Home Style ... CD
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $6.99
A really unusual album for Jack McDuff – one that was recorded in Memphis, with a lineup and a feel that's quite different from other Blue Note sessions of the time! There's a lot of electricity bubbling in the record – and although McDuff normally never worked with a bassist on earlier sessions, this one features a unnamed player who really lays out a nice bottom for the whole session – bubbling the tunes with lots of work on the electric, and letting McDuff concentrate on funking things up with the keys of the Hammond! The set features a key recording of Jack's classic "Theme From the Electric Surfboard", plus the funky numbers "Butter (For Yo Popcorn)", "The Vibrator", and "Down Home Style". CD

SupremesMeet The Supremes (portrait cover) ... LP
Motown, 1962. Sealed ... $24.99
Sublime early material from The Supremes – the group's first album for Motown, but one that already shows them standing out strongly from other girl soul acts of the time! The feel here is a bit more mellow, and maybe a bit more innocent than some of the later Supremes work – lots of slow-stepping numbers that offer a nice link between budding Motown soul of the 60s, and some of the more fragile group soul styles of the decade before. Smokey Robinson produced some of the best cuts, and there's definitely a similarity here with his early Miracles work for Motown – on titles that include "Your Heart Belongs To Me", "Buttered Popcorn", "I Want A Guy", "Who's Lovin You", "(He's) Seventeen", "Baby Don't Go", and "You Bring Back Memories".

Revolvo, 1950s/1960s. Used ... $5.99
A great collection of the funky genius of Andre Williams! The set features a few gems from his 50s R&B years, a lot of rare cuts from his 60s soul years, and two re-recordings of classic material, done in the mid 80s. Titles include "The Stroke", "African Twist", "Girdle Up", "Cadillac Jack", "Humpin, Bumpin, & Thumpin", "Do The Popcorn", "It's Gonna Be Fine in 69", "I'm Movin On", and "Loose Juice". 25 tracks in all.

✨✧ Various100% Dynamite! – Ska, Soul, Rocksteady, & Funk In Jamaica ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 60s-Mid 70s. Used ... $13.99
Soul Jazz have done it again! As with their classic NuYorica, Strata East, and Black Jazz comps, this one's a definitive sampling of rare funky stuff that you'll never find otherwise. The set brings together 14 classic Jamaican tracks from the 60's and 70's – and unlike a lot of the other weak-ass reggae comps out there, every cut on here is a winner (or if you prefer, 100% Dynamite!) Great cuts include "Armageddon Time" by Willie Williams, "Stereo Freeze" by Jackie Mittoo, "Granny Scratch Scratch" by Sound Dimension, "Popcorn" by The Upsetters, and lots more! There's also some great Jamaican covers of American funky soul classics – like The Marvels' version of "Rock Steady", and Phyllis Dillon's great remake of Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto". Lots more goodies, and the usual Soul Jazz high standard – which is 100% Dynamite! CD

VariousGoffin & King – A Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection 1961 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The full scope of the mighty songwriting talents of Carole King and Gerry Goffin – a much-chronicled 60s team who had plenty of troubles of their own, but who brought some really amazing music to the world at the time! The package features songs in a variety of genres – soul, pop, rock, country, and more – including some appearing here on CD for the first time ever, and plenty more that aren't just the obvious Goffin/King hits! The CD features a huge booklet – nearly 25 pages in all – with track-by-track notes on the tunes, as well as on the songwriting team – and as with some of Ace's other explorations into 60s pop powerhouses, the single disc package is almost more informative and thorough than some bigger box sets. Titles include "He's In Town" by The Tokens, "Don't Ever Change" by The Crickets, "The First & The Last" by The Chiffons, "Brand New Man" by Richard Popcorn Wylie, "Let Me Get Close To You" by Skeeter Davis, "The Idol" by Bobby Vee, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "Just A Little Girl" by Donna Loren, "I Can't Hear You" by Betty Everett, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Bobby Rydell, "I Didn't Have Any Summer Romance" by The Satisfactions, "Yours Until Tomorrow" by Dee Dee Warwick, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, and "A Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A cool collection of really oddball numbers – unusual country, offbeat pop numbers, and a fair bit of cuts that have a popcorn groove somewhere down there at the bottom! These aren't the usual sorts of cuts you might expect – and instead, the collection's definitely on the hipper side of the spectrum from the things we hear from the Stag O Lee label – almost like some of the great collections that the Trailer Park label's been putting out of late. Titles include "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Don't Jump" by Billy Fury, "The Hanging Day" by Warren Smith, "Riding Shotgun" by Danny Welch, "Satan Is Her Name" by Steve King & The Echelons, "Born To Love One Woman" by Ric Cartey, "All I Can Do Is Cry" by Johnny Bond, "Gringo" by El Clod, and "Baby Doll" by The Magnificent Seven.
