DriftersDrifters' Golden Hits (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 22.99
The golden hits of The Drifters, but a set that mostly features on the group's great second chapter at Atlantic Records – a time when original singer Clyde McPhatter had left the group, and Ben E King and Rudy Lewis came in with a very different style in the lead! Lieber & Stoller were strongly behind the group at this point, really making magic with the rhythms of the tunes too – those unusual rhythms that really set the early 60s Drifters apart from the pack – as you'll hear on cuts that include "There Goes My Baby", "(If You Cry) True Love, True Love", "Dance With Me", "This Magic Moment", "Save The Last Dance For Me", "I Count The Tears", "Some Kind Of Wonderful", "Up On The Roof", "On Broadway","Under The Boardwalk", "I've Got Sand In My Shoes", and "Saturday Night At The Movies".

DriftersI'll Take You Where The Music's Playing ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The Drifters' last full album for Atlantic Records – and a rock-solid set that may well be one of their best for the label in the 60s! The album's heavy on those lightly loping tunes that the group virtually invented a few years before – that slightly-sweetened approach to soul that became known as the uptown sound and which still had The Drifters as one of its key proponents at the time of this set. Production is by the great Bert Berns, who really knows how to balance all elements perfectly – and many of the lead vocals are by Johnny Moore, whose crackling vocals bring in a nice sense of feeling, even when the tunes are pretty darn catchy. But possibly the best thing about the record is the songs – as they're mostly pretty fresh tracks that move past some of the overplayed Drifters hits – but which still resonate with similar themes about live and life in the big city. Titles include "I'll Take You Where The Music's Playing", "I've Got Sand In My Shoes", "At The Club", "He's Just A Playboy", "Follow Me", "Far From The Maddening Crowd", and "Come On Over To My Place".

DriftersWe Gotta Sing – The Soul Years 1962 to 1971 (3CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Strawberry (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $29.99 38.99
Way more than just another collection of work by The Drifters – as this 3CD set goes way past all the other greatest hits compilations on the market, and brings together all sorts of wonderful overlooked tracks from their later years on Atlantic Records! At this point, former singer Clyde McPhatter and Ben E King have left the flock – leaving most of the lead work to Johnny Moore, and a bit to Rudy Lewis – in a lineup that maybe has the group even more unified as a whole, with a tremendous sense of harmony vocals that just keeps getting better and better as the 60s move on – and as the group try out all sorts of new rhythms and songs in the process. We really love The Drifters, and can't get enough of their special sound – and this set features plenty of unusual cuts to really keep our interest – a set of 76 tracks that includes "Up In The Streets Of Harlem", "We Gotta Sing", "Aretha", "Baby What I Mean", "Up Jumped The Devil", "I Dig Your Act", "You & me Together Forever", "Black Silk", "Desafinado", "Follow Me", "Come On Over To My Place", "Answer The Phone", "I Remember Christmas", "Spanish Lace", "I Don't Want To Go On Without You", "He's Just A Playboy", "Saturday Night At The Movies", "Looking Through The Eyes Of Love", "The Outside World", "My Islands In The Sun", "You Can't Love Them All", "Country To The City", "Still Burning In My Heart", and lots more!

Clyde McPhatterBallads Of Clyde McPhatter ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 20.99
Beautiful work from the great Clyde McPhatter – a singer who's often known for some of his hard-rocking work of the R&B years, but who could also be great with a mellower, gentler tune too! Clyde had a fantastic range – so much so, that had he stayed on this planet long enough, he might have matured into one of the great adult soul singers of the 70s – given his strength and sophistication here, as he works through material that's really a cut above the usual ballad sounds of the 50s! The package mostly features solo recordings by McPhatter – from both his Atlantic and Mercury years – but there's also two cuts with The Drifters, and two duets with Ruth Brown – all wrapped up with the beautiful presentation that makes a Bear Family set like this well worth the price. 29 tracks in all – with tunes that include "Blues Stay Away From Me", "Love Has Joined Us Together", "I Told Myself A Lie", "When The Right Time Comes Along", "Raining In My Heart", "Seven Days", "Treasure Of Love", "Fever", "The Clock", "Glory Of Love", "Maybe", "Everyone's Laughing", "I Make Believe", "I Never Knew", "Rock & Cry", and "Just To Hold My Hand".

Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 3 – 1965/1966 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1966. Used Gatefold ... $48.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. Volume 3 is overflowing with amazing sounds from the heart of the 60s – rare 45rpm tracks by Atlantic stars, Stax artists, and a few lesser-knowns too. Titles include "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "Help Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Ray Sharpe, "Long Distance Love" by Ted Taylor, "Lonely Soldier" by Mike Williams, "How Can You Babysit A Man" by Ned Towns, "Keep Looking" by Solomon Bourke, "I'm Sorry" by Fred Lowrey, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Share What You Got" by William Bell, "Reputation" by The Four Shells, "Me & My Baby" by Mary Wells, "Got No One" by The Delcardos, "Weak Spot" by Ruby Johnson, "Good Love Bad Love" by Eddie Floyd, "Bingo" by Ned Towns, "I Had A Dream" by Johnny Taylor, "I Can't Take It" by Ray Sharpe, "You Can't Love Them All" by The Drifters, "Believe It Or Not" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, "Patch My Heart" by The Mad Lads, "She's The One I Love" by The Delcardos, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, "Help The Bear" by Ted Taylor, and "I Feel A Sin Coming On" by Solomon Burke.

✨✧ VariousAt The Club – 25 Blistering Soul Essentials ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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!

VariousIn The Naked City – Songs Of Urban Life 1962 to 1972 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A great look at one of our favorite sub-genres of 60s soul – tunes that deal with the ins and outs of big city life, most of which were recorded as uptown soul tunes with really great production! It's hard to describe the charm of this work accurately, but the tunes are almost mini-movies, or sound snapshots of urban life at the time – often penned by Brill Building songwriters with a slight fantasy of life in the farther-flung boroughs of the city. Some of the tunes here are well-known, but lots more are obscure – really compelling tracks by singers who bring great life to the songs, and manage to make these little musical moments live on wonderfully over the years! Titles include "Nights In New York City" by Jan Bradley, "Street Talk" by The Tymes, "No Butterflies" by Walter Jackson, "I Love New York" by Marva Josie, "In My Apartment" by Dee Clark, "Big New York" by Chuck Jackson, "On Broadway" by The Cookies, "Concrete Jungle" by Arthur Alexander, "I Don't Want To Hear It Any More" by Jerry Butler, "Second Window Second Floor" by Clyde McPhater, "I Found A Daisy In The City" by Barry Darvell, "Song Of The Street" by Donald Height, "Strange Neighborhood" by The Imaginations, "Up In The Streets Of Harlem" by The Drifters, "City Of Fools" by Colette Kelly, and "That Old Neighborhood" by Eric Williams.

VariousSomething Good From The Goffin & King Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Nothing but great songs from the team of Gerry Goffin & Carole King – the third volume of greatness from the pivotal 60s songwriters to be put together by our friends at Ace UK – with several of the bigger hits for good measure, but strongly focused on lesser-remembered jewels that are just as deserving! Goffin & King's stratospheric success is a testament to both their immeasurable craft and the adaptability. The latter is key, as a wildly diverse roster either hit big of should have done so with these absolutely great songs – The Drifters, Chiffons, Freddie Scott, The Byrds, The Monkees, Rick Nelson, Tony Orlando, Lesley Gore, The Tokens, Dee Dee Sharpe. Soul, rock, pop or a combination thereof – Goffin & King's reach is amazing! 26 tracks: "One Fine Day" by The Chiffons, "Hey Girl" by Freddie Scott, "Sweet Young Thing" by The Monkees, "Soul Waltzin'" by Big Dee Irwin, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" by Bunny Sigler, "Chains" by The Everly Brothers, "Can't Stop Talking About You" by Tobin Matthews, "Take Good Care Of My Baby" by Dion, "Goin' Back" by The Byrds, "Don't Say Nothin' Bad (About My Baby)" by The Cookies and more.

Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet 70s grooves, and a few key contemporary cuts too – a really wonderful set that's full of overlooked modern soul gems and a great mix of mellow groovers! The package really serves up some of our favorite sounds from the 70s – tracks that are upbeat, yet never uptempo – and find a way of stepping along a midtempo groove that leaves plenty of room for the vocalist to really soar in the lead – hitting these rich, righteous lines that sparkle strongly throughout! The set list is superb, and features even a few surprises to our ears long-trained on modern soul – and tracks include "There I Go" by The Notations, "I Hate Hate" by Razzy, "Pour Your Little Heart Out" by The Drifters, "Daylight" by Bobby Womack, "Got To Find Ms Right" by Buddy Miles, "Tripping Out (Featurecast 2013 re-edit)" by Curtis Mayfield, "What Do You See In Her" by Inell Young, "You Made A Believer Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "This Side Of Heaven" by Gavin Christopher, "Spoiled Like A Baby" by Mystique, "If You Really Need A Friend" by Bobby Foster, "Smoothie Pie" by Sky Hi, and "I Don't Know" by Glen Anthony Henry.

✨✧ Clyde McPhatterClyde McPhatter Rocks ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from one of the most important singers in the years before soul music – the mighty Clyde McPhatter, who was first a member of The Dominoes, then started The Drifters, and soon became a great solo act on his own! There's a few cuts here from Clyde's vocal group recordings, but the set strongly focuses on those solo numbers that really let his voice take off – an amazing approach to music that was freer and more biting than some of the singers of the R&B generation – and which definitely laid the groundwork for so many soul artist in years to come! The package features a whopping 34 tracks in all, work from both his Atlantic, MGM, and Mercury recordings – all served up with the usual great Bear Family notes and presentation. Titles include "Three Thirty Three", "What'd I Say", "Deep Sea Ball", "Let The Boogie Woogie Roll", "I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Some Day", "Ta Ta", "Since You've Been Gone", "Climb That Mountain Of Love", "This Is Not Goodbye", "I'm Movin On", "Stop", "I Can't Stand Up Alone", "Can It Be Wrong", "Thirty Days", "Take A Step", "Lover Please", "Up To My Ears In Tears", and "Same Time Same Place".

✨✧ VariousGlitter & Gold – Words & Music By Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest guy/girl songwriting teams of the 60s – featured here in a killer collection of some of their best work! The range of artists here is nicely wide – from rockers to pop crooners to soul groups – and all of the tunes are key readings of songs penned by Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, possibly not the highest-charting versions, but easily some of the greatest ever set to record! Ace really did a great job with this one – matching the heights of their other songwriter series titles, and really bringing out the darkness in the Mann/Weil songs – a subtle sort of sadness that comes through perfectly in most of these versions. The 24 page booklet features track-by-track notes on the tunes – really getting at the story of the recordings – and titles include "It's Not Easy" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Kicks" by Del Shannon, "It's Getting Better" by Mama Cass, "The Bossa Nova" by Tippie & The Clovers, "Hungry" by Paul Revere & The Raiders, "It's A Happening World" by The Tokens, "Chico's Girl" by The Girls, "Glitter & Gold" by The Turtles, "In The Park" by The Drifters, "Where Do I Belong" by Calvin Grayson, "Let Me Walk With You" by The 2 Of Clubs, "She Is Today" by Bergen White, "Girl It's Alright Now" by Bruce & Terry, "Where Have You Been All Of My Life" by Arthur Alexander, and "I'd Be So Good For You" by Joanie Sommers.
