VariousFever – Journey To The Center Of A Song Vol 2 (10" pressing) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the coolest songs of the postwar years – given a tremendous presentation here in a really wonderful package! You probably know "Fever" from the original version by Little Willie John – or from Peggy Lee's string-heavy take – but this collection dives deeper into the heart of the song, by offering up a nice range of different versions – most of which are in a mix of soul, R&B, or jazz-based modes! The groove is nice and raw – similar to that on other of the 10" releases from the Stag-O-Lee label – with all the hard-vamping, bad-stepping groove that "Fever" has to offer – in versions by Bobby Freeman, Little Caesar & The Romans, Ray Peterson, Sid Cooper, Earl Grant, Medicine Men, Sam Butera & The Witnesses, Pete Bennett & The Embers, and The Knockouts.

VariousLou Adler – A Musical History ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
A rich tapestry of work from one of the greatest talents in the LA music business of the 60s – the mighty Lou Adler, a man who really learned how to make records from the ground up! Adler wrote, produced, and presented a tremendous amount of important work for some key years in both rock and soul music – starting with A&R duties at smaller indie labels, stints with some of the bigger companies, a great run at Dunhill, and his own important Ode Records too – all chapters of his career that are captured here in a 25 track set that's filled with notes and photos. Adler may often be thought of more as a businessman than a creator, but this set definitely shows that other side of his talents – and really does a great of of tracing the developments that helped Lou get the kind of ear that then helped up launch the careers of so many others. The range of work here is really surprising – and titles include "Wonderful World" by Sam Cooke, "Baby Talk" by Jan & Dean, "Bim Bam" by Sam Butera & The Witnesses, "Stoney End" by The Blossoms, "Gimme Shelter" by Merry Clayton, "Snow Queen" by The City, "Eve Of Destruction" by Barry McGuire, "Alley Oop" by Dante & The Evergreens, "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight" by The Untouchables, "The Times They Are A-Changin" by Brothers & Sisters Of Los Angeles, "Earache My Eye" by Cheech & Chong, "I Got A Line On You" by Spirit, "It's Too Late" by Carole King, "San Francisco" by Scott McKenzie, and "Wear Your Love Like Heaven" by Peggy Lipton.
