✨✧ VariousRare Soul Heaven – SSS Meets GSF Records – 1968 to 1976 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
A great compilation of rare soul from the dual vaults of Nashville's SSS International and NYC's GSF Records – a north-meets-south collection of brilliant late 60s to mid 70s soul put together by Outta Sight UK! Both labels released a pretty diverse mix of soul styles – from gritty and funk tinged, to sweeter and more soaringly orchestrated – and the set includes incredible stuff from some of our all time favorite acts from the period overlooked by the mainstream, as well as stuff that's was heretofore unheard by our deep digging selves! 20 tracks in all: "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Help Is On The Way" by Van McCoy, "Baby You Got Me" by Clarence Murray, "Give Him Up" by The Whatnauts, "Love Me" by Lloyd Price, "My Hang Up Is You" by Skull Snaps, "I Got The Place If You've Got The Time" by Allison, "Do I (Love You Like You Like It)" by Jackie Ross, "I'm Your Pimp" by Skull Snaps, "Lonely Man" by Johnny Soul and more.

✨✧ Johnny AdamsChasing Rainbows – The Tan Canary – New Orleans Soul 1969 to 1981 ... CD
Shout (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive look at the lost years of southern soul singer Johnny Adams – 2CDs worth of music that bring together a wealth of tracks recorded between his initial years on SSS International Records, and his later revival in the 80s on Rounder! These cuts all appeared on much more obscure albums – records issued by the Chelsea, Ariola, and Hep Me labels – none of which ever got much exposure back in the day, but which are wonderfully pulled together here to capture these lost years in Johnny's career! In a way, this material may be some of the best that he ever recorded – as it's got a sense of poise and maturity, but also feels somewhat relaxed and intimate – that stronger sort of sophistication that was bubbling in the undercurrent of southern soul as the 70s moved on. Adams' vocals are impeccable throughout – often crackling with a nice sort of rasp, even when the backings are tight or smooth – and titles include "The Image Of Me", "Chasing Rainbows", "I Can't Believe She Gives It All To Me", "After All The Good Is Gone", "Night People", "Memories", "Stand By Me", "I Can't Be All Bad", "Too Much Pride", "Nothing Takes The Place Of You", "Give Me A Chance", "I Don't Wanna Cry", "Baby Baby I Love You", and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".

✨✧ Margie SingletonPledging My Love – Juke Box Pearls ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet girl pop from the early 60s – a treasure trove of work from the under-discovered Margie Singleton! If Margie's last name seems familiar, that's no coincidence – as the cuts here were produced by Shelby Singleton, later of SSS International fame – recorded in Nashville in a unique approach to female pop at the time! The music's definitely a bit country, but not entirely so – as Margie's got this cool crossover vibe, of the sort we can always find in Shelby's music – so that she also echoes styles from the west coast scene of the period, but always tinged with a heartbreaking quality that's pure Tennessee! The tracks here originally appeared as early 60s singles on Mercury, and the package does a great job of bringing them together with all the original session information – as well as lots of notes on her short career. CD features 30 tracks in all – including "Toss A Pebble In The Water", "How Lonely She Must Be", "Chained To A Promise", "Living In A Danger Zone", "Magic Star", "Don't Be Good To Me", "The Cypress Tree", "No Thanks I Just Had One", and "Your Old Love Letters".
