✨✧ Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali)I Am The Greatest (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little record – and proof that Muhammad Ali was star material, even in his early years! The record is kind of in the spoken word mode – but has added music by Peter Katz – and features Ali delivering some of his famous poetic "zinger" type material, of the sort that would come to prominence even more strongly during the 70s, as Ali's fame and press presence rose. There's a brashness to his presentation that's totally great, and almost a precursor to more righteous male performance in 60s soul – and the titles of the tunes kind of say it all, and include "The Knockout", "I Have Written A Drama He Said Playfully", "Funny You Should Ask", "I Am The Greatest", and "I Am The Double Greatest". Plus, the CD features 3 bonus tracks – including a version of "Stand By Me"! CD

Sonji ClayHere I Am & Here I'll Stay/Nobody ... 7-inch
Songee, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Sonji Clay was the wife of Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay), and she cut a few very nice soul singers in the Chi soul scene of the late 60s. "Nobody" is one of her best sides, and has a nice loping groove that sounds like it could have been on a Barbara Acklin album. "Here I Am" is more of a jazzy number, but still has some nice vocals by Sonji, in the Chicago soprano tradition. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Vinyl has a noisy spot at the beginning of "Nobody".)
