King Curtis & The ShirellesEternally Soul ... LP
Scepter, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A repressing of an album that was first titled The Shirelles & King Curtis Give A Twist Party – issued here with a different title and cover. Curtis and The Shirelles trade tracks back and forth on this sweet LP that's probably one of the rawest efforts we ever heard on Scepter. Forget the "twist" in the title, because this is mostly R&B stuff with a nice nice groove. The Shirelles do their usual girl group thing, but with an uptempo sound, and less of a pop feel. Curtis plays tenor and sings a bit, and turns in some nice tracks that rank with his work for the Fire/Fury label. Titles include "Mister Twister", "Potato Chips", "Mama, Here Comes The Bride", "Take The Last Train Home", and "Love Is A Swinging Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

ShirellesFoolish Little Girl ... LP
Scepter, 1963. Good+ ... $14.99
The girls do it again! On this nice set, the Shirelles mix their deep soul vocals with some sweeter uptown arrangements produced by the great Luther Dixon – for a trademark sound that put the Scepter label on the map. There's a few uptempo numbers that border on the sock radio soul of the time, but most of the stuff's got a right in the pocket groove – much deeper soul than you might expect! The record's also got some nice lesser-known New York tracks that make it well worthwhile – and titles include "Abra Ka Dabra", "Hard Times", "Foolish Little Girl", "I Didn't Mean To Hurt You", "Talk Is Cheap", and "Don't Say Goodnight & Mean Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing – with "hit" sticker on front! Cover has some wear and a split top seam.)

ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. Used ... $9.99
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements from George Andrews and Joe Scott that mix fuller strings with tighter grooves at the core – in a way that really sets the vocals free amidst some very interesting material! Had the girls only cut this record, it might have been a 70s soul hit – but it's unfortunately gotten lost to the shifting sands of time because it's not as iconic as their hits. Don't make that mistake, though, because the album's a real charmer – and titles include "Boy You're Too Young", "There's Nothing In This World", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Take Me", "We Got A Lot Of Lovin To Do", and "Strange I Still Love You". The 1972 album The Shirelles is surprisingly great later work by The Shirelles – nice and soulful, thanks to arrangements from David Van De Pitte and Wade Marcus – both of whom push the trio way past their roots, into more sophisticated group soul for the 70s! The approach carries the best (then) contemporary styles from New York and Philly – particularly that strong way of mixing group vocals with focused grooves – as you'd hear from some of the more successful male groups of the time on RCA, like Main Ingredient or Choice Four. The Shirelles have a strong sense of harmony that really pushes the tunes forward – and the material is nice and creative – with titles that include "Walk On In", "Brother Brother", "Sunday Dreaming", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Let's Stay Together", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", and "Drowning In The Sea Of Love". CD also features bonus tracks – "Let's Give Each Other Love", "Do What You've A Mind To", and "Touch The Wind". CD

ShirellesLost & Found – Rare & Previously Unreleased Shirelles ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great re-evaluation of the music of The Shirelles – one that takes us way past their familiar hits, into a range of rare and obscure work from the 60s! The tunes here are a refreshing change from some of the too-compiled material in The Shirelles' career – and offer up a good number of previously unissued gems from the vaults of Scepter Records, plus a few other tunes that saw the light of day over the years – but only briefly, and in limited ways. A good deal of the tracks are really solid 60s soul – not girl-group pop, but tracks done with styles that echo work from the best of the New York uptown and Chi-soul generation – and the vocals go a bit deeper than we expected, in a way that really renews our appreciation of the group! CD features 29 titles in all – including "I Might Like It", "Remember Me", "I'm Yours", "Lonesome Native Girl", "Why Does Every Boy Remind Me Of You", "Hey Rocky", "Hands Off He's Mine", "Groovy Guy", "Go Tell Her", "Crossroads In Your Heart", and "Long Day Short Night".

Scepter, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
By Golden Oldies, the girls mean tracks from a few years back, that were recorded for other labels and by other artists.

VariousAce Records 40th Anniversary Box Set (7 x 7 inch singles) ... 7-inch
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 7 x 7 inch set ... $34.99
A beautiful package – done in celebration of 40 years of wonderful music from Ace Records – and a great reminder of why we love them so much! The set is book-style – similar to the Motown Singles CD sets, or a vintage 78rpm album – and it includes lots of text and notes on the music – plus individual pages that include all the music on 45s, too! The music runs the gamut of all the great styles that Ace has given us over the years – vintage soul, blues, funk, and even a bit of rock – and tracks include "Confessin The Blues (alt)" by BB King, "Tough Lover (alt)" by Etta James, "One Cup Of Coffee & A Cigarette" by Glen Glenn, "You're Under Arrest" by The Shirelles, "Not My Girl" by The Platters, "No Other Guy" by Lou Johnson, "Try A Little Tenderness (alt)" by Otis Redding, "You Gotta Have Soul" by James Carr, "Psychedelic Sally" by Eddie Jefferson, "Keep On Brother Keep On" by Johnny King & Fatback, "I Got Mine" by The Charlatans, "Get The Picture (alt)" by The Scot Richard Case, "Don't Cry For Me" by The Zombies, and "Keys To Your Heart" by The 101ers.

VariousDancing Til Dawn ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The "dancing" in the title refers to the act as practiced by England's Northern Soul scene – who have a penchant for uptempo soul groovers, which makes this set a sock-hard set of rare 60s tunes! The package features 25 tracks that go for the harder and more upbeat side of the Wand/Scepter label's output – a company who's normally known for some of their mellower and uptown soul tracks – but who really come out of the gate here with some wonderful soaring singles. Titles include "This Man" by Wally Cox, "Last Minute Miracle" by The Shirelles, "Come Back Baby" by Nella Dodds, "Everything Is Everything" by Sandy Waddy, "Out On The Streets Again" by Candy & The Kisses, "Desiree" by The Charts, "Tightrope" by Bobby Martin, "You Busted Up My Mind" by Judy Clay, "Love Is A Good Foundation" by Leslie Uggams, "One In A Million" by Maxine Brown, and "Marching" by The Camp.

VariousLiving The Nightlife ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A really classic collection from the folks at Kent Records – just the sort of gem that first made us start to notice their genius back in the day! The package is the kind of soul set that never would have come out in America – as it's got that special blend of Northern and Mod soul numbers that the UK scene really helped bring to the forefront – currents of US soul from the 60s that may not have hit the charts over here, but which found long life, thanks to overseas DJs and collectors! The CD brings together two dozen gems from the Wand and Scepter labels – singles that often have a sock-soul groove, set to sweet uptown production – all with more than enough punch to keep you living the nightlife all the way to the dawn. Titles include "Gonna Give Her All The Love I Got" by Benny Gordon, "Black Eyed Girl" by Billy Thompson, "My Sweet Baby" by The Esquires, "Good Things Come To Those Who Wait" by Chuck Jackson, "I Don't Want To Lose You" by Mel Wynn, "I Want You" by Judy Clay, "Happiness Will Cost You One Thin Dime" by Betty Lavette, "Yesterday's Kisses" by Big Maybelle, "Love Ain't What It Used To Be" by The Diplomats, "I Refuse To Give Up" by Clarence Reid, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Livin The Nightlife" by The Charts, "Do You Love Me Baby" by The Masqueraders, "The Pretty Part Of You" by Tommy Hunt, "Please Stay" by The Ivories, "Send My Baby Back" by Freddie Hughes, "Carlena" by the Just Brothers, "Dearly Beloved" by Jack Montgomery, "Groovy Guy" by the Shirelles, "Look My Way" by Maurice Williams, and "You Must Be Losing Your Mind" by Jimmie Raye.

VariousModernism – 24 Tracks Of Hip-shaking Club Soul & Vintage R&B ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
Not the modernism of high art or experimental literature – and instead the upbeat, totally groovy sound of British mods in the 60s – served up here in a wicked batch of American soul tracks from the time! The style here is a bit Northern Soul, but also has a bit more of the blues and R&B elements that inspired some of the Brit rock acts of the time – but served up here by the originators from our side of the Atlantic, and with the kind of attention to special tracks and rare singles that we've come to expect from the great folks at Kent Records! This is more than just a rehash of older hits or overplayed numbers – and instead, the carefully-chosen set list really gets right to the heart of the matter – and backs up its musical magic with a great set of notes, photos, and label scans. Titles include "Ain't That Soul" by Teddy Reynolds, "Do It" by Pat Powdrill, "Crossroads In Your Heart" by The Shirelles, "Beg Me" by Chuck Jackson, "Cinderella Jones" by Sammy Jones, "We Gonna Rub (part 1)" by Joe Johnson, "Night Beat" by Kenny Smith & The Lovelighters, "Magic Potion" by Lou Johnson, "The Life Of The Party" by Joan Moody, "The Phillie" by The M&Ms & The Peanuts, "Private Eye" by Wallace Johnson, "Listen To Me Baby" by Ralph Ventsha & Red Julian Quartet, and "When One Of Them Won't" by The Turn Arounds.

✨✧ VariousOn Broadway – The Songs Of Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil ... CD
Playback (Australia), 1960s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A totally wonderful collection of work from the legendary songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil – and one that goes way past some of the too-familiar hits we've heard from the duo over the years! Instead, this one seems to focus on the less obvious – tunes that might be famous, but recorded by some different artists than the hit versions – or some more unusual songs from Mann and Weil, served up with the kind of readings that should have made them huge! Most work is American, but there's also some tracks from overseas – pulled together from a big range of indie labels in the 60s, with a few cuts from later years too. Titles include "This Is A Love Song" by BJ Thomas, "Bless You" by Wildfire, "Angelica" by Roy Hamilton, "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling" by Dionne Warwick, "It's A Happening World" by The Executives, "Talk To Me Baby" by Barry Mann, "Come On Over To My Place" by Dewey Edwards, "Come Home Baby" by Terry Knight, "I Don't Want To Love You" by Skeeter Davis, "Not You" by Walter Jackson, "See That Boy" by Paris Sisters, "Till We Kissed" by Ray Columbus & The Invaders, "Baby Baby" by Julie Grant, "The Gospel Truth" by The Shirelles, "The Shape Of Things To Come" by The Graduates, "Hungry" by The 5AM Event, and "Glitter & Gold" by Danny & Diego. Great notes – and an excellent package overall! CD

VariousOut In The Streets Again – The Soul Sounds of Scepter (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $24.99
Rare soul from the Scepter label – the famous home to the early work of Dionne Warwick and Burt Bacharach, but a very hip record company with a strong commitment to underground soul in the 60s! The best of that stretch is presented here – in a really well-done collection that's filled with obscure tracks that only every appeared as 45s, including some obscure cuts by bigger names, including a few that might surprise you! There's also a few blue-eyed soul tracks here too – titles that might seem a bit surprising on paper, but really fit the groove of the collection. Titles include "Work Song" by Tommy Hunt, "Dearly Beloved" by Jack Montgomery, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "The Change" by Ernestine Eady, "I'm Stepping Out Of The Picture" by Johnny Maestro & The Crests, "Out In The Streets Again" by Candy & The Kisses, "Lost Love" by Irma & The Fascinators, "Hey Watcha Doin" by Jerry Tiffe, "Marching" by The Camp, "Groovy Guy" by The Shirelles, "Tonight's The Night" by Candy & The Kisses, and "Ain't No Soul Left In These Old Shoes" by Ronnie Milsap.

✨✧ Ernest GoldIt's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (expanded 2CD version) ... CD
United Artists/La La Land, 1963. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the craziest cross-country films ever made – with a host of stars so big we'd have to rent another website just to list them! Ernest Gold does a pretty nice job with the soundtrack – maybe not as all-out goofy as the story, but in a nice way that really helps to anchor the action! Orchestrations are mostly familiar Hollywood modes, but pretty darn playful, too – and this amazing 2CD reissue of the score features way more than was ever issued before. Disc 1 features 73 minutes of music from the film – lots of short tracks, key songs, and instrumental passages woven together in a very rich tapestry of music – changing moods as fast as the film changes scenes. Disc 2 features the original LP release of the material – including the songs "Thirty One Flavors" and "You Satisfy My Soul" by The Shirelles – plus "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World", "Follow The Leader", "Gullible Otto Meyer", and "Instant Chase". CD
(Limited to 2000 copies.)
