New VariousHung On You – More From The Goffin & King Songbook ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from one of the greatest songwriting teams of the 60s – a pair whose talents equally touched the worlds of soul, rock, and pop at the time! There's a tension to the songs of Gerry Goffin and Carole King that's been talked about over the years – and this collection provides a wonderfully strong illustration of that quality, as the ideas of the duo are spread out here over work by a diverse array of singers, all of whom circle back to that subtle sense of emotion that makes these tunes so great. Most of the numbers are from the New York scene of the mid 60s – and often have great Brill Building-styled production – but there's also some surprising entries from other scenes too, which really show the scope of the Goffin/King power. 26 tracks in all, with tune-by-tune notes – and titles that include "The Sheik" by The Clovers, "This Little Girl" by Dion, "You Turn Me On Boy" by The Honey Bees, "Don't Let Me Stand In Your Way" by Skeeter Davis, "That Old Sweet Roll" by Dusty Springfield, "Hung On You" by The Righteous Brothers, "Please Hurt Me" by Little Eva, "Snow Queen" by The Tokens, "The Boy From Chelsea" by Truly Smith, "So This Is How It Feels" by The Countrymen, "Sometime In The Morning" by The American Breed, "So Many Lonely People" by Henry Alston, "No One Ever Tells You" by The Crystals, "Road To Nowhere" by Hearts & Flowers, and "Anything Can Happen" by Walter Jackson.

New Davis SistersMemories ... CD CD format
Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Boy, were we happy to see this one! In the early 50s Skeeter and Betty Jack Davis recorded maybe the greatest female country tunes of the time, and pre-rock boogies that would influence THAT little movement, including the great "I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know", and "Rock-A-Bye-Boogie". This 2 CD set collects 60 tracks – many of which, needless to say, are seeing the light of day for the first time in ages! Sadly, Betty died in a car wreck without recording a whole lot more than you'll find here – and Skeeter went on to record plenty of fine material on her own and with others. Includes several alternate versions and readings of the staples like "Foggy Mountain Top", and a thick booklet with childhood photos and detailed biography. Other tracks include "Your Gone", "Tomorrow I'll Cry", "Gotta Git A-Goin", "You Weren't Ashamed To Kiss Me Last Night", "Single Girl", "Show Me", "Takin' Time Out For My Tears", and, oh, about 40 more!
