VariousSoul Gold Vol 1 ... LP
SSS International, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
An excellent collection of indie soul recorded for the hip SSS International label in the 60s – one of the cooler companies in the southern scene, with a blend of rootsy and more polished styles in its roster. A few of these numbers are familiar, but there's more that aren't – and the record does a good job of filling in holes in our understanding of the label. Titles include "Shout Bamalama" by Mickey Murray, "I Almost Called Your Name" by Johnny Soul, "There's A Break In The Road" by Betty Harris, "Flat Foot Sam" by Mickey Murray, "I Have No One" by Big John Hamilton, "Pickin Wild Mountain Berries" and "Lover's Holiday" by Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson, "Pledging My Love" by Laura Greene & Johnny McKinnis, and "Honey" by Sil Austin. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSouthern Soul Deep Collection – Soul Treasures Vol 1 – Natural Soul Brothers ... CD
SSS International/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $32.99
Killer cuts from the SSS International label – the Tennessee home to some great indie soul cuts from the late 60s and early 70s – most of which were in a deep or funky soul mode! The label's been covered before, but this series goes deeper than any we've ever seen – to not only dig up some really overlooked singles for the company, but also unearth some never-heard tracks – the kind of tracks that show the label's effortless work with the underground and up-and-coming talent on the southern scene at the time – their strong commitment to recording high-quality work, even if they weren't all that likely to score a hit! This first volume features 5 unreleased tracks – out of a total of 23 in all – and titles include "Lat It On Me" by Danny White, "Tell Him Tonight" by The Climates, "Bullfrog" by Jeb Stuart, "So Deep In Love" by Eddie Giles, "Mama's Got The Wagon" by Mickey Murray, "Lonely Man" by Johnny Soul, "Let Me See Those Knee Caps" by Willie Hobbs, "Gonna Use What I Got" by Danny White, "The Pig & The Pussycat" by Mickey & Clarence Murray, "Blue Eye Brother & Soul Get Along (part 1)" by Chuck Cornish, "A Man's Way Of Life" by Dynamic Walter B & The New Breed, and "I Almost Called Your Name" by Johnny Soul.

✨✧ Betty Harris/Big John HamiltonThere's A Break In The Road/Big Bad John ... 7-inch
SSS International/Fraternity, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great soul track from the legendary Betty Harris – one that's written by Allen Toussaint, produced by him and Marshal Sehorn, and with a funky drum in the beginning that's right off a Meters' record! Then, Betty comes in with some killer New Orleans soul vocals and rips the whole track to pieces! "Big Bad John" is a fantastic funk track from Big John Hamilton – one that would be worth it alone for the massive break and bassline at the start, but which just gets better and better as the tune rolls on – with this southern funk sound that's totally on the money! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Linda MartellColor Me Country ... LP
Plantation, Late 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes that artists like Millie Jackson picked up in the 70s. But the set was also recorded as part of the SSS International family of labels headed by Shelby Singleton – who also cut a fair bit of soul music at the time – often blending modes, musicians, and songs on the Nashville scene of the time. The best example of that approach here is Linda's excellent remake of "Color Him Father" – first made famous by The Winstons – done as a sweet-stepping number with a very different feel than the original. Other tracks include "The Wedding Cake", "Before The Next Teardrop Falls", "Old Letter Song", and "Tender Leaves Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a cutout hole.)
