Box TopsCry Like A Baby ... LP
Bell, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
A fantastic album from The Box Tops – the kind of all-great, no-filler record that really set them apart from some of their 60s contemporaries! At this point, Alex Chilton's still not a songwriter, but he sounds tremendous in the lead on vocals – working with superb Memphis production, amidst a host of great tunes from the team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, plus a few other key songwriters too! Penn produced the record, and really gives it a fantastic sound – the kind of special touches and genre-bending elements of his own later records – on titles that include "Deep In Kentucky", "Cry Like A Baby", "Trouble With Sam", "The Door You Closed To Me", "Lost", "Fields Of Clover", and "Every Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Box TopsLetter/Cry Like A Baby/Non Stop/Dimensions (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Bell/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Four full albums from the Box Tops, plus bonus tracks too! First up is The Letter/Neon Rainbow – a powerhouse set from The Box Tops – a 60s group who showed the world that the Memphis scene had as much to offer the world of rock as it did the worlds of blues and soul – thanks to the all-great pedigree of this album! Not only does the group feature a very young Alex Chilton on lead vocals, the set was also recorded at the new American Recording Studios headed up by Chips Moman – with tracks on the record from the classic soul songwriting team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, not to mention a few by the young Bobby Womack too! The bit hit "The Letter" leads off the set, but the album's way more than just that it – filled with great tunes that include "I Pray For Rain", "I'm Your Puppet", "Happy Times", "Neon Rainbow", "Break My Mind", "She Knows How", and "Everything I Am". Cry Like A Baby is a fantastic album from The Box Tops – the kind of all-great, no-filler record that really set them apart from some of their 60s contemporaries! At this point, Alex Chilton's still not a songwriter, but he sounds tremendous in the lead on vocals – working with superb Memphis production, amidst a host of great tunes from the team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, plus a few other key songwriters too! Penn produced the record, and really gives it a fantastic sound – the kind of special touches and genre-bending elements of his own later records – on titles that include "Deep In Kentucky", "Cry Like A Baby", "Trouble With Sam", "The Door You Closed To Me", "Lost", "Fields Of Clover", and "Every Time". Non Stop is beautiful work from The Box Tops – a set that has the group moving way past their early hits, and finding this really sort of special place in the world of up-and-coming artists in the 60s! The Box Tops were maybe one of the first Memphis rock groups to really put together all the great elements that were bubbling in that city's scene during the 60s – the unique hybrid of soul, country, R&B, and other influences that were filtering into groups via the cross-cultural vibe of the city. That quality really comes through here – partly in the group's performance and the lead vocals of Alex Chilton, partly in the great production by Dann Penn, who also wrote a number of tracks with Spooner Oldham, and partly in the way that fuller arrangements are used to underscore some more soulful touches in the music. Titles include "Sandman", "Choo Choo Train", "I'm Movin On", "People Gonna Talk", "She Shot A Hole In My Soul", "I Met Her In Church", "I Can Dig It", and "If I Had Let You In". Dimensions is maybe one of the most soulful albums by The Box Tops – and that's saying a heck of a lot, as there's plenty of other soul elements moving through the other records! Alex Chilton's really finding his own here, and contributes a number of his own songs to the record, as a harbinger of his great legacy to come – and the production is slightly shifted, with Tommy Cogbill and Chips Moman taking over from Dan Penn, and maybe bringing in even more elements from the wide crossover between rock and soul on the Memphis scene. Titles include "I See Only Sunshine", "Together", "The Happy Song", "Rock Me Baby", "Sweet Cream Ladies", "I Must Be The Devil", "Midnight Angel", and "Soul Deep". Bonus cuts include "Since I Been Gone", "Lay Your Smile On Me", "King's Highway", "Take Me To Your Heart", "Georgia Farm Boy", "Come On Honey", and "You Keep Tightening Up On Me". CD

VariousMotown – Complete No 1's (limited edition 11CD collector's box set) ... CD
Motown, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 11CDs ... $149.99 169.99
An amazing package – one that comes in a tiny replica of the original home of Motown Records in Detroit!

The package also includes a photo book with classic images and notes – but man, what we dig most of all is that tiny house of hits packaging – a really amazing thing! Plus, this version of the set also features a bonus CD that wasn't in the original version – with 12 more tracks whose cover versions charted at #1! CD

VariousCover Me – The Eddie Hinton Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
We'd put the great Eddie Hinton right up there with Dann Penn and Spooner Oldham for southern soul songwriting genius – and like that pair, Eddie never got as much time in the spotlight as he did in the background – where his genius for a heartfelt tune helped give more than a few artists some great success over the years! This package is a long-overdue look at Hinton's mighty talents with a tune – and it includes a great mix of soul, rock, and pop artists taking on some of his finest work – mostly recordings from that late 60s/early 70s time when Eddie was working at full capacity – and lending his talents to some killer tracks coming out of the Muscle Shoals scene. Most numbers have a deep soul vibe – even the rock ones – and titles include "Cover Me" by Jackie Moore, "Down In Texas" by Oscar Toney Jr, "Every Natural Thing" by Aretha Franklin, "Love Waits For No Man" by Al Johnson, "Lay It On Me" by Gwen McCrae, "Poor Mary Has Drowned" by Brick Wall, "Masquerade" by Don Varner, "A Little Bit Salty" by Bobby Womack, "Sure As Sin" by Candi Staton, "300 Pounds Of Hongry" by Tony Joe White, "Always David" by Sweet Inspirations, "Where's Eddie" by Lulu, "Breakfast In Bed" by Dusty Springfield, "If I Had Let You In" by The Box Tops, "Home For The Summer" by The Hour Glass, "People In Love" by Lou Johnson, and "Where You Come From" by Bonnie Bramlett.

VariousMotown Rare & Unreleased (blue vinyl pressing) (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Motown, Mid 60s-Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A treasure trove of rare Motown from some of legendary label's most classic acts – Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, The Originals, Bobby Taylor, The Marvelettes, Marvin Gaye & The Jackson 5 – prime vintage late 60s to early 70s recordings that have barely if ever seen light of day! Motown recording artists put a lot of work into the recording side of their artistry back in the day, so there was a lot classic level material that didn't come out right away, some finding release on later compilations or on box sets, some STILL just now seeing release. Half of this dozen song collection have never come out in any form until now – including "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" by The Originals and stereo mixes of "For Once In My Life" by Diana Ross & The Supremes, "Pretty Little Brown Skin Girl" by The Temptations and "Touched By Love" by Bobby Taylor and more – plus the rarities "You're Walking Out With My Heart" by Brenda Holloway, "Which Way Is The Sky" by the Four Tops, "Let's Have A Party" by the J5, "The Boy From Crosstown" (Version 1) by The Marvelettes and more.

VariousReggie Young – Session Guitar Star ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
A huge overview of greatness from guitarist Reggie Young – a musician who's remembered not only for a few key records of his own, but also for countless dates in the Tennessee studios of the 60s and 70s, where he helped transform the records of others with his talents! The package here features Reggie on every single track – adding guitar parts to a surprising variety of musical styles, including some classic southern soul that comes as a great surprise – because most folks usually think of Young in terms of his work for country music giants! The package is a great follow-up to the reissues that Ace Records has done of Reggie's own records – and features very detailed notes, with information on all the many and unusual tracks that feature Young's talents within. Titles include "Rock N Roll" by Sonny Curtis, "Touch Of The Blues" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Meet Me In Church" by Solomon Burke, "Don't Forget About Me" by Dusty Springfield, "Slip Slip Slippin In" by Eddie Bond & His Stompers, "Dream Baby" by Jerry & Reggie, "I'm Movin On" by The Box Tops, "The Champion (part 1)" by Willie Mitchell, "In The Pocket" by King Curtis & The King Pins, "Drift Away" by Dobie Gray, "I Think I'll Just Stay Here & Drink" by Merle Haggard, "Victim Of Life's Circumstances" by Delbert McClinton, "Lover Please" by Billy Swan, "Morning Glory" by James & Bobby Purify, "Where Do We Go From Here" by Waylon Jennings, "Whenever You Come Around" by Little Milton, and "More Love" by James Carr.

VariousSolitary Man – The Early Songs Of Neil Diamond ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99

✨✧ Woody HermanComplete Woody Herman Decca, Mars, & MGM Sessions 1943 to 1954 (7CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, 1940s/Early 50s. New Copy 7CD ... Out Of Stock
It's hard to put the genius of Woody Herman in words – but that's something we don't have to do, thankfully, as this massive box set provides a wonderful illustration of everything that made Woody such a standout in his generation! Sure, Herman was a bandleader with a clarinet – but that's where any similarity to other large groups stops – as Woody was always open to new ideas, including influences from bebop, modern jazz, R&B, jump blues, and other styles – and was always changing up the way he approached his music and arrangements, not just changing the lineup of his famous bands, but also breaking out into new recording possibilities too! This package captures Herman at three important parts of his career – early Decca Records 78rpm singles, which show all those modern edges that Herman created on the large ensemble jazz scene, thanks to key modern players; his huge amount of music for MGM, where Herman also really opened up as an overall entertainer, and was able to take on just about any jazz style with effortless ease, and become quite a singer as well; and his rare 50s material for his own self-run Mars label, an imprint for 78rpm singles that linked Woody much more with the growing R&B indies of the time. And as much as we love Mosaic for LP-related box sets, we often feel they do an even more crucial job with sides from this 78rpm era – proving great sound, missing notes, and a sense of completeness that you don't even get if you're a collector of the original format. 7CD box has the usual great Mosaic presentation and copious notes – and a total of 141 tracks in all.
