ShirellesBaby It's You ... LP
Scepter, 1962. Good+ ... $14.99
A great one from The Shirelles – the kind of album that goes way past the obvious, and really shows the quartet as a heck of a great soul group overall! If you've ever only thought of The Shirelles as simple girl group pop, this is the record to get you past that easy expectation – and although the album carries their big hit "Soldier Boy", it also features a fair bit of other great tunes too! Many of the numbers here aren't well-known hits – either by the group or other artists – and they make for a nicely fresh sound that shows that the girls have a lot more to offer than just a few familiar oldies singles. Production has a nice sad-tinged, late nite quality – and titles include "Baby It's You", "Irresistible You", "Voice Of Experience", "Big John", "Twenty One", "A Thing Of The Past", "Putty In Your Hands", and "Make The Night A Little Longer". LP, Vinyl record album

ShirellesShirelles Swing The Most ... LP
Pricewise, 1964. Very Good ... $2.99
Beautiful stuff from one of the most soulful 60s pop girl groups – and proof that The Shirelles were always a cut above! The record's a great batch of hard to find songs by the group – including some great Goffin/King numbers – recorded with some surprisingly raw vocals that definitely keep The Shirelles more on the soul side of the spectrum than the pop one – set to some soaring uptown soul arrangements that are totally great! Titles include the classic hit "Oh No, Not My Baby", plus "Get Rid Of Him", "His Lips Get In The Way", "A Girl Is Not A Girl", "Please Go Away", "Lonesome Native Girl", "What Does A Girl Do", and "What A Sweet Thing That Was".

✨✧ ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousOut In The Streets Again – The Soul Sounds of Scepter (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

VariousAce Records 40th Anniversary Box Set (7 x 7 inch singles) ... 7-inch
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. Sealed 7 x 7 inch set ... $39.99
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. Limited to 1000 copies, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

VariousSalut Les Copains – 1961 Les Hits ... LP
Europe 1/Universal (France), 1961. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99
A very cool collection that pays tribute to an explosive postwar decade in the French music scene – a time when the overseas market was really embracing the new styles of rock and soul from America and England, but also making some wonderful music of its own! The series does a great job of mixing up modes – so that you'll hear a French tune one minute, an English one the next – with an ever-evolving sense of styles as the series move on – especially as a lot more French material tends to dominate in the latter half of the 60s! The effect is almost like tuning into Paris radio during the year in the title – and it's no surprise that the whole thing was done as a project by Europe's Radio 1, in collaboration with Universal – at a level that's way better than some of those overstuffed schlockier hits package on the market. Titles on this 1961 volume include "Viens Danser Le Twist" by Johnny Hallyday, "Baby It's You" by The Shirelles, "Hit The Road Jack" by Ray Charles, "Est-Ce Que Tu Le Sais" by Les Chats Sauvages, "Dactylo Rock" by Les Chausettes Noires, "Please Mr Postman" by The Marvelettes, "Panne D'Essence" by Frankie Jordan & Sylvie Vartan, "Comme Un Volcan" by Rocky Volcano, "Ca Tourne Rond" by Nicole Croisille, "Garde-Moi La Derniere Danse" by Dalida, "Daniele" by Les Chausettes Noires, "Zou Bisou Bisou" by Gillian Hills, "Ving-Quatre Mille Baisers" by Frankie Jordan, and "Santiano" by Hugues Aufray.

✨✧ VariousManhattan Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really special set of soul tracks – and one that's got a vibe that's maybe even different from the previous two Manhattan Soul collections! This package is filled with the kind of overlooked gems that sometimes get lost because people are a bit too focused in their record-collecting tastes – mellow cuts that are still a bit funky, deep soul from up-north sources, and even some group numbers that are neither upbeat and Northern, nor slow enough to be mellow harmonies. Instead, these cuts together really defy the rules – showing that in the deeper corners of the New York underground, there were always great new ideas going on – not work that was trying to challenge the stars at Atlantic, or the Brill Building best – but instead very happy to just do their own thing, in some very groovy ways. The work comes from the Wand, Scepter, and Musicor family of labels – better-known for big hits, but also very dedicated to cool indie singles that only seem to be getting their due in more recent years. CD features 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Giving Up" by Junior Lewis, "Now That You're Gone" by Sonny Turner & Sound Limited, "Open Up Your Heart" by Dan & The Cleancuts, "Every Little Bit Helps" by Helen Henry, "Two Stupid Feet" by The Shirelles, "The Same Old Song" by The Dinos, "Nobody Made You Love Me" by The Charts, "Fun City Woman" by Ann Bailey, "The Landlord" by The Tabs, "Does Love Believe In Me" by Melba Moore, "Mr Schemer" by Brenton Wood, "You Picked Me" by The Soldier Boys, and "Never In My Life" by Lee Moses.
