Hank BallardOne & Only Hank Ballard & His Midnighters ... LP
King, Late 50s. Sealed ... $9.99
Hank Ballard definitely falls into the "one and only" category – especially with work as great as his sounds on this classic album for King Records! Hank sings in a style that's as badass as his look on the cover – as raw in these cuts as James Brown was during the same stretch for King – with an ability to both hit a hard groove with The Midnighters providing sharp R&B accompaniment – and also slide into some occasional heartbreaking numbers that were perfect for his raspy vocal approach. And although Hank had a few big hits for King in the 50s, this set's got lots more obscure numbers – showing that the genius of the young Ballard is a virtual bottomless well – on titles that include "I'm Crying Mercy Mercy", "I'll Keep You Happy", "I'll Pray For You", "Cute Little Ways", "Move Move Move", "She's Got A Whole Lot Of Soul", "So Good To Be Home", "House With No Windows", "Sugaree", and "Rain Down Tears". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s reissue pressing.)

Hank BallardSunday Morning Coming Down (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Silver Fox, Early 70s. Very Good ... $3.99
A weird one from Hank – not at all like other 70s work! This single's a sad, slow, country soul reading of a Kris Kristofferson tune – pretty darn great, although very different than any of his funky tunes. So if you're buying this for a funk track, forget it – but if you like early 70s country soul by Solomon Burke or Joe Tex, you'll find it to be a nice one! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has some staining and peeling.)

✨✧ Hank Ballard & The MidnightersUnwind Yourself – The King Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... CD
King/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of our favorite work ever from the legendary Hank Ballard – a key figure in early R&B, and a singer who cut some big hits with his group The Midnighters – but one who also continued to do some wonderful work for King Records long after his hits – most of which is included in this wonderful set! The package focuses on years that might be deemed "lost" for Hank – a time when he was past the dance hits of the early part of the 60s, and yet to rise as part of the James Brown universe at the end of the decade – although still, in some way, already strongly in the JB side of the spectrum with cuts like these – deep soul gems, funky numbers, and the kind of rough romping tunes that draw from R&B, but have more of a 60s vibe here. CD features 26 cuts in all – including "Poppin The Whip", "Here Comes The Hurt", "Funky Soul Train", "Do it Zulu Style", "Dance Till It Hurtcha", "Let's Get The Show On The Road", "Annie", "Unwind Yourself", "Which Way Should I Turn", "I'm Just A Fool", "Get That Hump In Your Back", "Just You Just You", "A Winner Never Quits", "Somebody's Got To Help Me", and "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show".

✨✧ Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... $4.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

✨✧ VariousMy Goodness Yes – Soul Treasures From The Silver Fox Label ... LP
Silver Fox/Sundazed, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue collection of work from Silver Fox Records – one of the coolest indie labels in the south at the end of the 60s, part of the Nashville-based SSS empire, and poised at a really unique crossroads of soul! Silver Fox was always a bit funkier than SSS – and often had a groove that brought deep soul vocals into play with tighter funky backings – in a way that took the already hard-burning southern sound of the time, and managed to cook it up a few notches! Silver Fox mostly only issued singles, and apart from a few key hits, a big part of the label's output has never been properly reissued – nor properly remembered – but as usual, Sundazed have gone out of their way to really present the material right. Titles include "Do Your Duty" and "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "Motor City Funk (part 1)" by Bright Lights, "Poppin Popcorn" by South Street Soul Guitars, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "You Shakin Things Up" and "You See Me" by Robert Parker, "So Deep In Love" by Eddie Giles,"Love Em & Leave Em" and "Yes My Goodness Yes" by Willie Hobbs, "You Got To Pay The Price" by Gloria Taylor, and "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Reuben Bell.

✨✧ James BrownGet On The Good Foot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really great double-length set from James Brown – maybe slightly less iconic than some of his other classics from the early 70s, but a record that really shows the man stretching out and finding his groove! The whole thing is a great example of the new freedoms that Brown was experiencing away from King Records – and the approach not only recreates the mix of funk and soul that you'd find on Hell, but also echoes some of the People Records style to come too – in part because there's a few tracks that have the vibe of a funky 45, and also because James lets the newly-revived Hank Ballard com in and do a 5 minute recitation about how great James has been to his career. Titles include the long numbers "Funky Side Of Town" and "Please Please" – plus "Your Love Was Good For Me", "The Whole World Needs Liberation", "Nothing Beats A Try But A Fail", "My Part/Make It Funky (parts 3 & 4)", "I Got A Bag Of My Own", "Dirty Harri", "Recitation by Hank Ballard", "Ain't It A Groove", "I Know It's True", "Get On The Good Foot (parts 1 & 2)", and "Cold Sweat", in a new arrangement by Dave Matthews! LP, Vinyl record album
