Treasured Hits From The South – Presented By Nick Charles

LP (Item 937704) Stax, Early 60s — Condition: Good

One of the earliest albums on Stax Records – a strange mix of that label's own soul music with titles from Sun Records too – a fascinating document of Memphis, with a strangely collegiate image on the front! Includes work by William Bell, Carla Thomas, Booker T & The MGs, and The Mar-Keys – as well as tracks by Charlie Rich, Carl Mann, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Thomas Wayne – plus one by Nick Charles too.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Note: vinyl has a slight warp, but played fine for us. Cover has some light wear.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Smoother Johnnie Taylor than in earlier years – gearing up for the shift to Columbia a few years later, with backings recorded in both Detroit and Muscle Shoals. Johnnie's vocals are still fantastic – and the album sports the great hit "Cheaper To Keep Her" – but that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Staple Singers

Staple Swingers
Stax, 1970. Very Good-
The title's a bit of a joke, given the cover image – but it's also no lie either, as The Staple Singers are definitely swinging here – taking their gospel roots into a whole new direction in righteous soul, one that countless other acts would copy at the time! The music here is upbeat, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
About as classic as you can get with the Staple Singers! The record was cut at that perfect moment when the group was forging an electric soul sound that would bring them high in the charts in the 70s – filled with all the righteousness of their gospel years, but also touched with elements ...

Booker T & The MGs

Melting Pot
Stax, 1971. Very Good-
One of the greatest albums ever from Booker T & The MGs – and very different than their early work! The record has Book & Co taking off with a stretched-out jazzy sound – carving expanded grooves that are filled with sweet organ solos, choppy guitar riffs, and some incredibly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

One Step Beyond
Stax, 1970. Very Good-
One of the coolest covers of Johnnie Taylor's early years on Stax Records – and some pretty great music to match!

Staple Singers

Be What You Are
Stax, 1973. Near Mint-
Warmly grooving 70s soul from The Staple Singers – recorded in a fuller Memphis mode that's miles from their gospel roots, but still plenty darn nice! The style here is very much in keeping with the hit Staples mode of the time – righteous, full, but still nice and earthy at the bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1971. Sealed Gatefold
One of the most fantastic soundtracks of the 70s – and maybe even of all time – thanks to a non-stop blast of insane styles and grooves – all quite different than other blacksploitation records of the time! For this, his masterpiece film, Melvin Van Peebles composed a non-stop ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ear Wax/Wonderland, Late 70s. Sealed
An obscure little funky group from Flint, Michigan, one with a tight ensemble sound that's very much in the Earth Wind & Fire mode – complete with a really great horn section, plenty of bass-heavy grooves a the bottom, and a relatively spiritual feel that comes through strongly on the ...

Curtis Mayfield

Back To The World
Curtom, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, ... LP, Vinyl record album
