✨✧ VariousGoldwax Story Vol 1 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal work from the Goldwax Label – one of the best deep soul labels ever! Goldwax was part of the Memphis scene that spawned some of the greatest work of the Stax/Volt imprint – and like that label, Goldwax was home to some incredible talents that had a raw southern soul edge. The most famous of Goldwax's artists over the years was the now-legendary James Carr – but a number of other great talents recorded for the company, many of whom appear on this long-overdue CD! The package features 24 tracks in all – all legitimately licensed from original producer Quinton Claunch – and even includes a few unissued tracks! Titles include "I'm Living Good" by The Ovations, "There Goes My Used To Be" by Wee Willie Walker, "I'll Be True To You" by Spencer Wiggins, "Some Other Time" by Eddie Jefferson, "Call On Me" by Percy Milem, "That's How Strong My Love Is" by OV Wright, "Here It Is Now" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "Love Is A Tricky Thing" by The Five C's, and "Liquid Mood" by Timmy Thomas.

✨✧ VariousGoldwax Story Vol 2 ... CD
Goldwax/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from one of the greatest deep soul labels ever – the legendary Goldwax Records, a smaller company that languished in the shadows of Stax and Hi Records during their glory years! Like so many small labels in cities that were important to soul music, Goldwax seemed to have an amazing talent for picking up all the bits that Stax and Hi left behind – recording artists who were every bit as good as the bigger stars from Memphis, but who also seemed to benefit even more from the personal sound, and richer recording quality they got from the label. The most legendary figure to record for Goldwax was James Carr, and the work on this set follows very much in Carr's tradition – a deeply burning, extremely heartfelt approach to southern soul – one that even leaves some of the bigger names of the scene in the dust! The set features 24 tracks in all, including a number of unreleased tracks – and it's packaged with a great set of notes on this legendary imprint! Titles include "I Never Loved A Woman" by Spencer Wiggins, "Crying Baby Baby Baby" by Percy Milem, "Welcome Home Baby" by Barbara Perry, "Peace Of Mind" by The Ovations, "Country Style" by Dorothy Williams, "Good Times" by George & Greer, "Toddlin" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Wee Willie Walker, "When You Look In The Mirror" by Eddie Jefferson, "The Side Wind" by The Lyrics, "Darling" by The Vel Tones, and "A Man Needs A Woman" by OB McClinton.

VariousAmerican Folk Blues Festival – Live In Paris 20 Octobre 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1962. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
A beautifully-recorded concert from early 60s Paris – one done as part of the legendary folk-blues tour, and featuring a great selection of musicians, all with introductions from Memphis Slim! Slim's a hell of an MC for the event, and really provides this warm context that seems to open up the singers and musicians – who play here in a style that's every bit as crucial and faithfully handled as some of the early 60s blues performances at Newport – with none of the fake modes you might fear from a performance of blues for European audiences. The 3CD package seems to capture the entire concert, even in the way that Memphis Slim helps move from artist to artist – and in addition to solo performances by John Lee Hooker, Shakey Jake, Willie Dixon, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, T Bone Walker, and Helen Humes – there's also a few numbers by the full ensemble of singers too.

✨✧ Nancy WilsonSon Of A Preacher Man/Hurt So Bad ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two overlooked Capitol albums from Nancy Wilson – back to back on a single CD! First up is Son Of A Preacher Man – a wonderfully groovy album from Nancy Wilson – filled with hip jazzy touches and lots of bouncy soul – in that sweet blend that was a perfect fit for the style of late 60s Capitol Records! Nancy really steps out from some of her more staid modes here – swinging a groove with some bad-rapping late 60s styles, yet still also reminding us that she's a sophisticated lady on some of the record's more adult tracks too. Arrangements are by the trio of Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, and Joe Parnello – each of whom bring a different feel to the record, and help create a strong sense of variety amongst tracks that include "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Make The World Go Away", "I Made You This Way", "Husbands & Wives", "Mr Walker It's Over", "Almost Persuaded", and "Got It Together". Hurt So Bad continues the groovy late 60s sound of Nancy Wilson at Capitol Records – that unique blend of jazz and soul that seemed to inspire a whole host of imitations at the time! Nancy's still the best of the bunch at this sort of groove, though – and the arrangements here shift nicely between bouncy soul tracks and mature mellower ballads – handled with just the right sensitivity through charts by Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, Billy May, and Oliver Nelson. Some of the best tracks are the ones with Phil Wright – like the covers of "Hurt So Bad", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", and "You're All I Need To Get By" – which all really showcase the new soaring side of Wilson's talents. Yet the other work is plenty great too – definitely head and shoulders above the rest – on cuts that include a funky take on "Spinning Wheel", plus "One Soft Night", "Ages Ago", "Come Back To Me", and "Let's Make The Most Of A Beautiful Thing".
