Solomon BurkeSolomon Burke's Greatest Hits ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $8.99
Way more than just a greatest hits album from Solomon Burke – as the set's the only album appearance of most of his key early singles – making the whole thing pack the same punch as his other full-length records for Atlantic! Plus, given that although Burke's music was great, it never got the same radio play as some of his bigger contemporaries – these aren't really hits, so much as seminal 60s soul tunes that went onto form the blueprint for countless other acts to come – both in the north and the south! Burke really draws on his deep gospel roots here – and knocks it out of the park with every number – killer material that we'd take any day against even a pile of his albums from later years. Every track's a winner – and titles include "Down In The Valley", "Cry To Me", "Just Out Of Reach", "Keep The Magic Working", "Looking For My Baby", "How Many Times", "Baby", and "Be Bop Grandma".

✨✧ Solomon BurkeMusic To Make Love By ... CD
Chess/Elemental (France), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record – a real standout in Solomon Burke's career! This set features him working with arrangements that are smooth, mellow, and sexy – very much in the Barry White and Isaac Hayes mode, a style that's a perfect fit for Solomon's voice, which was warm and deep back when White and Hayes were just kids! Gene Page did some of the arrangements with Solomon, and the record's a wonderfully unified session with a mellow 70s soul feel that's just great. Titles include "Everlasting Love", "Music To Make Love By", "Midnight & You", "You & Your Baby Blues", and "Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You". CD

✨✧ Solomon BurkeI Wish I Knew ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from Solomon Burke – a great little set that draws on all of his deep soul roots for Atlantic, but also gets a little bit funky too! There's a growing maturity in Solomon's music here that we really love – a quality that gets past the churchy cliches, and starts to explore some of the new territory opening up to soul artists at the end of the 60s – influences from all points south, wrapped up in a slightly tighter New York presentation. Titles include Solomon's great version of the hard break classic "Get Out Of My Life, Woman", an amazing remake of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", and the tracks "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free", "Meet Me In Church", "Since I Met You Baby", "Shame On Me", "Why Why Why", and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye".

✨✧ Solomon BurkeProud Mary – The Bell Sessions ... CD
Bell/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Solomon's most famously known for his Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but immediately after working for that label, when his soul vibe was still quite strong, Solomon cut some great little sides for the Bell label in Muscle Shoals. The approach used was actually a bit rootsier than that on some of Solomon's Atlantic sides, and production on most of the cuts is by Solomon and Tamiko Jones. This CD brings together cuts from Solomon's one LP on Bell, plus 6 bonus cuts that feature him singing some pretty interesting material – done in that style he used in late Atlantic years that made even suspicious cuts sound pretty darn nice! Much of the material is cover versions of tracks – but apart from the hard-to-hear "Proud Mary" (a track that always seems a bit tired from the perspective of this generation), there's lots of nice numbers that bring out this style, like "In The Ghetto", "Change Is Gonna Come", "Uptight Good Woman", "What Am I Living For", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "These Arms Of Mine", "Don't Wait Too Long", and "That Lucky Old Sun". 17 tracks in all.

Chuck JacksonTeardrops Keep Fallin' On My Heart ... LP
VIP, 1970. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure one by Chuck Jackson – but a great one too! The album was cut for Motown's VIP subsidiary, during a time when Chuck was experimenting with a slightly southern style – a bit in the mode of Solomon Burke or Brook Benton, but with a lighter touch, as you'd guess from Chuck's earlier recordings. The format provides a perfect platform for Chuck to open his voice a bit more, melt the ice from his earlier Wand sides, and get into a bit deeper vocal style. Titles include "Baby, I'll Get It", "I Can't Let My Heaven Walk Away", "Let Somebody Love Me", "Two Feet From Happiness", "Just A Little Love", "That's Me Lovin You", and "Have You Heard About The Fool".

VariousAt The Club – 25 Blistering Soul Essentials ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer soul from the 60s – a wonderfully rich array of hard soul grooves – all with a superb pedigree! The "At" here is short for "Atlantic" – as in Atlantic Records, the source of all the very groovy cuts on this set – as well as some from the early years of Stax Records too! But if you're thinking the collection's just another batch of overplayed Atlantic soul hits from the 60s, then think again – because the track selection is wonderful, and the compilation goes out of its way to pick lesser-known gems and rare singles – including some by artists we didn't even realize recorded for Atlantic! There's definitely a few familiar cuts on here, but there's lots more that were only briefly issued as 45s – as you'll hear on titles that include "Holding On With Both Hands" by Eddie Floyd, "Able Mable" by Mable John, "Walking Up A One Way Street" by Willie Tee, "At The Club" by The Drifters, "It Ain't What You Got" by Jimmy Hughes, "Help Me Get The Feeling" by Ray Sharpe, "Some Other Guy" by Richie Barrett, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Que Sera Sera" by The High Keys, "Keep Lookin" by Solomon Burke, and the amazing "Some Kind Of Wonderful" by Soul Brothers Six, a monster track that is worth the price of the CD alone!

VariousBeat Goes On – Atlantic's Dance Through The 50s, 60s, and 70s ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The beat goes on, and the groove does too – in this wonderful set of tracks that show the continued commitment of Atlantic Records to the realm of hard soul groovers! The package brings together a great blend of familiar numbers and lesser-known gems from three decades of the label's history – beginning with upbeat R&B gems from the 50s, moving through some great shifts in style that include some jukebox mambo sounds, jerking 60s soul, and even a bit of early funk – all in a sweet blend of tracks that never stops moving throughout! The package features 25 tracks in all – with the usual stellar Ace/Kent level of presentation – and titles include "Instant Groove" by King Curtis, "Philly Dog" by The Mar Keys, "Mambo Baby" by Ruth Brown, "What Is Soul?" by Ben E King, "Take It Off Him" by Clarence Carter, "You Don't Know What You Mean To Me" by Sam & Dave, "Nursery Rhymes" by Deon Jackson, "The Beat Goes On" by Sonny & Cher, "I'm Gonna Cry" by Wilson Pickett, "Time" by Jackie Moore, "Maggie's Farm" by Solomon Burke, "You've Got That Something Wonderful" by Percy Sledge, "Right Place Wrong Time" by Dr John, "You Better Check Yourself" by Soul Brothers Six, and "Funky Street" by Arthur Conley.

VariousFrom Sacred To Secular – A Soul Awakening (8CD set) ... CD
History Of Soul, Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 8 CDs ... $39.99 54.99
A heavy set of early soul music – mixed with a fair bit of gospel as well – all to show the evolution of the sounds of the style from its roots in the church! The package willfully – and wonderfully – mixes tracks from soul, R&B, and gospel sources all together in a ridiculously huge batch of tunes – 231 songs in all – running from late 40s jump blues and gospel, through the rise of R&B in the 50s, currents of electric blues, hard-edged vocal material, and lots of key cuts from the earliest years of soul music – all packaged in a book-style cover with a set of notes and lots of vintage images within! At first glance there doesn't seem to be a strong sense of organization to the package – but there's a musical vibe that really shows up once you start listening – taking a journey from spiritual to secular, with plenty of stops along the way. The package features dozens and dozens of different artists – only a handful of whom include The Aladdins, Davis Sisters, Caravans, Marie Knigh, Linda Hopkins, Dorothy Love Coates, The Sheiks, The Drapers, Kelly Brothers, JJ Barnes & The Del Fis, Mable John, Highway QCs, Soul Seekers, Soul Stirrers, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Singin Sammy Ward, Johnny Adams, Solomon Burke, Brother Joe May, Prince La La, Womack Brothers, Arthur Alexander, Willie Tee, Valentinos, and many more – including a fair bit of bigger names from 60s soul!

VariousGreatest Twist Hits ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good ... $18.99
Don't be put off by the "twist" in the title – as this is a killer collection of R&B work from Atlantic Records – with some rare soul singles too! The cover claims that this album contains "the 16 best twist numbers by the world's most authentic performers" – and titles include "How Many Times" by Solomon Burke, "Rock & Roll Machine" by Tee Tucker, "Jam Up Twist" by Tommy Ridgely, "Mr Lee" by The Bobbettes, "I Want To Know" by Lloyd Sims, "Twist & Shout" by the Top Notes, "Do The Hully Gully" by King Coleman, "Bootie Green" by the Clovers, and "Jim Dandy" by LaVern Baker.

VariousLeiber & Stoller Story Vol 3 – Shake Em Up & Let Em Roll – 1962 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The 3rd volume in Ace's great exploration of the career of Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller – and most likely the best so far! By this point in their career, Leiber & Stoller were totally at the top of their game – buoyed on a huge wave of previous hits, and able to really get creative once again in the studio – exploring their new interest in South American rhythms, their love of tight orchestrations, and appreciation for deeper-voiced soul singers – all in a flurry of lesser-known singles that offer up a refreshing antidote to some of their over-played hits! About half the tracks here are soul singles, and the rest are 60s pop, rock, and vocal numbers – written by the pair, and mostly produced by them. Titles include "It's So Exciting" by The Exciters, "His Kiss" by Betty Harris, "My Heart Said Do The Bossa Nova" by Irene Reid, "You Can't Love Em All" by Solomon Burke, "Keep It Up" by The Soul Brothers, "Only In America" by Jay & The Americans, "Down Home Girl" by Alvin Robinson, "The Gunfighter" by Tommy Roe, "Bull Dog" by The Shangri-Las, "Jackson" by Johnny Cash & June Carter, "Flying" by Carmen McRae, "Where's The Girl" by Ben E King, "On Broadway" by Jimmy Scott, "Is That All There Is" by Peggy Lee, and "Brother Bill" by The Honeyman.

VariousWhere It's AT – Soul In the Midnight Hour ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Kent Records takes on the Atlantic Records catalog of the 60s – and come up with a wonderful array of cuts that go way past the obvious hits from the famous label! The groove here is a mix of hard soul and funky numbers from both big names and lesser-knowns who recorded for the Atlantic family of labels – and the package mixes hard-grooving classics with some even cooler cuts that might be a new discovery to your ears here – all laid out in that killer Kent soul style that makes every track sound even better in the company of the others. As usual with the label, the sound, package, and notes are great – and the CD features 26 titles that include "Do The Hully Gully" by King Coleman, "You've Got Me On The Critical List" by Don Covay, "The House That Jack Built" by Aretha Franklin, "Snatching It Back" by Clarence Carter, "Uptight" by Charlie Palmieri, "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell, "In The Midnight Hour" by Little Mac & The Boss Sounds, "Release Me" by Esther Phillips, "Stupidity" by Solomon Burke, "You Don't Know Like I Know" by Sam & Dave, "Philly Dog" by Herbie Mann, "Stupidity" by Solomon Burke, "My Girl Sloppy" by The Vibrations, "Land Of 1000 Dances" by Wilson Pickett, and "Your Old Lady" by The Isley Brothers.

✨✧ Jackie WilsonBaby Workout (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hard soul groove from the great Jackie Wilson – and a record that really has the singer coming into his own! The music is tight, upbeat, and mighty rocking right from the start – and Wilson takes off with these tremendous vocals that are undeniably some of the greatest in early soul music – very much on a par with the best from Clyde McPhatter or Solomon Burke! And unlike some of Wilson's other albums of the time, there's almost no pop or ballad material at all – just great groovers like "Baby Workout", "You Only Live Once", "Cute Little Girls", "Shake! Shake! Shake!", "Love Train", "Say You Will", and "The Kickapoo". CD features 8 bonus tracks too – including "The New Breed", "Haunted House", "Call Her Up", "I'm Travelin On", "I'm Going Crazy", "Baby Get It", and "He's A Fool". CD

✨✧ VariousIt Had To Be You – Southern Soul Anthology ... CD
Essential, 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The singer on the front looks a lot different than the kind of artist usually portrayed on the cover of a southern soul collection – which is a good indication of the sound of the music within! The cuts here are less southern soul tracks with the heavy grit of the 60s, and instead showcase that shift in styles as the 70s moved into the 80s – currents of modern soul production and instrumentation, mixed with deep soul approach to the vocals – in a way that really changes any sort of easy prediction you'd have about the music, as styles criss cross in a beautiful way! The package has no dates at all, but most cuts sound like they're of 70s and 80s vintage – and a few familiar numbers feel like later remakes by the original artist. Titles include "Love Jones" by Norma Jenkins, "More" by Solomon Burke, "Casanova" by Ruby Andrews, "Wish That Someone Would Care" by Irma Thomas, "I'm Gonna Be Rich & Famous" by Jesse James, "Human" by Tommy Hunt, "Stay" by Willie Clayton, "Hold Back" by ZZ Hill, "If You Get Him" by Bette Williams, "Yours Love" by Freddie North, and "I Want To Sleep With You" by Ruth Brown.

✨✧ Joe SimonSimon Pure Soul ... LP
Sound Stage 7, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent early work by Joe Simon – very much in the rootsy southern mode that graced his best early singles, and which seemed to disappear quickly as his fame rose in the 70s. Joe's voice is great – with touches of Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Brook Benton, and Ben E King, all wrapped up into one powerful style that can handle a wide range of emotions and expression. The whole album's great, and handled with a smooth southern backing that was one of the best contributions made to the music by Sound Stage 7 maestro John Richbourg. Titles include "Long Hot Summer", "Teenager's Prayer", "Too Many Teardrops", "My Special Prayer", "The Girl's Alright With Me", and "Too Many Rivers". LP, Vinyl record album
