King Curtis & The ShirellesEternally Soul ... LP
Scepter, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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
(Cover has a split top seam & a partially split spine.)

✨✧ ShirellesBaby It's You/Shirelles & King Curtis Give A Twist Party (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Scepter/Ace (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Girl soul heaven – two 1962 albums from The Shirelles, back to back on CD with bonus tracks too! First up is Baby It's You, a great one from The Shirelles – the album that carries their big hit "Soldier Boy", and which 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". On Shirelles & King Curtis Give A Twist Party, Curtis and the girls 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". CD also features 3 bonus tracks too – "I Saw A Tear (single version)", "Baby IT's You", and "Hurry Home To Me (Soldier Boy)" by Valli. CD

✨✧ ShirellesTonight's The Night/Sing To Trumpets & Strings (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Scepter/Ace (UK), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A Shirelles double-header – and with bonus tracks too! Tonight's The Night is the first album in The Shirelles mighty run for Scepter Records – and a great set that really set new standards for girl soul in the 60s! Although some of the cuts crossed over bit, the whole album's got a heartbreaking sense of soul that goes way beyond familiar oldies – a beautiful mix of crackling lead and supporting harmony vocals, often set to simple rhythms that led the voices handle most of the action in the set! Titles include the classic "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", plus a number of other well-penned Brill Building soul tunes – including "Boys", "Tonight's The Night", "Lower The Flame", "Doin The Rondie", "Dance Is Over" and "Tonight At The Prom". Sing To Trumpets & Strings has a title that's a bit of a misnomer – hardly the brass and violin session you might expect, and more of a deeper soul set overall! The girls do a great job of mixing the rough with the smooth – usually by balancing a strong lead with supporting harmony vocals – and the production from Luther Dixon really keeps things fresh – often using just a bit of backings well behind the vocals, and keeping things far from the too-pop modes of other girl groups of the time. Titles include "Mama Said", "The First One", "What A Sweet Thing That Was", "Rainbow Valley", and "What's Mine Is Yours". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Look A Here Baby", "A Teardrop & A Lollipop", and "Please Be My Boyfriend". CD

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 ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $11.99
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.

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.

✨✧ VariousMr Santa Claus (Bring Me My Baby) – Classic Soul & R&B Christmas Cuts 1961 to 1963 ... CD
Contrast, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great Christmas tunes from the early years of soul music – tracks that have their roots in the R&B Christmas modes of the 50s, but also burst out in great new directions too! Some of the tracks feature harmony groups, others feature single artists – and in addition to some of the bluer sounds of the season, there's lots of titles here that sparkle with a newly festive vibe – that upbeat style that you'd also hear on dancefloor soul singles of the period. There's plenty of unfamiliar numbers here – which makes the set a delight to our ears – and titles include "Santa Claus Is Coming" by The Midnighters, "Don't Cry For Me This Xmas" by The Marcels, "New Year Greeting" by Gene McDaniels, "I'll Stay Home" by The Jaynells, "Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Kim Weston, "I Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Big Dee Irwin & Little Eva, "Mr Santa Claus" by Nathaniel Mayer, "Merry Christmas Darling" by The Uniques, "White Christmas" by Darlene Love, "Drive Slow" by Johnny Flamingo, "Christmas Time" by Jan Bradley, "Blue Holiday" by The Shirelles, "Merry Christmas Darling" by Poppa Hop, and "Christmas Greeting" by Gene McDaniels.
