ShirellesBaby It's You ... LP
Scepter, 1962. Very Good- ... $19.99
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
(Cover has a rip on the top right corner, splitting on the seams, and staining on the back.)

Shirelles & King CurtisShirelles & King Curtis Give A Twist Party (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Scepter/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
And give a party they do – a really rocking, raw soul party that goes way past any teeny-bopper sort of associations with the "twist" – into a realm that may well make the album The Shirelles greatest record ever! Both King Curtis and The Shirelles trade tracks back and forth – in a style that will definitely have you forget the twist in the title, because the overall feel is mostly R&B and raw soul – served up with a mighty nice groove! The Shirelles hit some great harmonies in an uptempo mode – way past simple chart pop, and nicely soulful throughout – and King Curtis plays tenor and sings a bit, and turns in some nice tracks that rank with his early 60s work for the Fire/Fury label! Titles include "Mister Twister", "New Orleans", "Welcome Home Baby", "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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Nice original mono pressing – with "hit" sticker on front!)

✨✧ ShirellesHappy & In Love ... LP
RCA, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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

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 ... $62.99
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.

VariousReal Thing – The Songs Of Ashford, Simpson, & Armstead ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Mindblowing music from the trio of Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson, and Jo Armstead – most of it composed and recorded in New York during the mid 60s – before Armstead left for the Chicago scene, and Ashford & Simpson went to work for Motown in Detroit! The three writers have a really beautiful way of putting over a tune – fresh lyrics that are perfect for the budding soul generation of the 60s – and which often get some production work from the members of the trio too, especially on some of the tracks here that were issued by Wand Records. The package does a perfect job of unearthing these early years – pulling together compositions by the three (and occasionally just by Ashford & Simpson) – and illuminating this period with notes that are as thorough as the selection of tracks on the set. Titles include "Dance Children Dance" by Mary Love, "The Shoe Won't Fit" by Betty Everett, "Look Away" by The Shirelles, "Are You Trying To Get Rid Of Me Baby" by The Crystals, "I Don't Need No Doctor" by Sandy Nelson, "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy, "The Real Thing" by The Chiffons, "Smokie Joe's" by The Jewels, "Say It Again" by Marie Knight, "Looky Looky" by Candy & The Kisses, "Mr Creator" by The Apollas, "You're Absolutely Right" by Tina Britt, "I'm Satisfied" by Chuck Jackson & Maxine Brown, "Cry Like A Baby" by Aretha Franklin, "Same Old Feeling" by Jo Ann & Troy, "Only Your Love Can Save Me" by Betty LaVette, and "Love Ain't What It Used To Be" by The Diplomats.
