Hank Ballard & The MidnightersHank Ballard & The Midnighters Rock ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 20.99
Hank Ballard was one of the greatest singers in the pre-soul generation – the kind of vocalist who provided inspiration for so many others to come in the 60s – a raw lead singer who really drove his group to great heights – as you'll hear here in this hard-rocking collection of tracks from the best years of the group! Most of these numbers were cut by Hank and The Midnighters for King Records – the kind of raw gems that made the label one of the best of the 50s when it came to all things hard and heavy – and the collection of cuts definitely features the kind of tracks that live up to the title – the work that made The Midnighters one of the first great crossover acts, even before rock and roll was a thing for the kids in the suburbs! Every track's a winner, and the superb Bear Family presentation knocks the set out of the park – with titles that include "Henry's Got A Flat Feet", "That House On The Hill", "Annie's Aunt Fannie", "I Feel That A Way", "Sexy Ways", "Sugaree", "Shaky Mama", "Are You Forgetting", "Stingy Little Thing", "Rock Granny Roll", "The Float", "Big Red Sunset", "I'm Young", "Don't Let Temptation Turn You Round", "Tore Up Over You", and "Don't Ever Change Your Pretty Ways".

Hank Ballard & The MidnightersUnwind Yourself – The King Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... CD
King/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
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".

✨✧ Various6T's Rhythm N' Soul Society – In The Beginning ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mod jazz and socking soul – a wicked little collection of 60s groovers, put together by the folks at London's 6T's Rhythm & Soul Society! The sound here is quite different than that of compilations by UK Northern Soul clubs and DJs – with an overall groove that's rougher, deeper, and more open to tracks from a variety of different genres. If we had to come up with our own tag, we'd almost call the sound here "early mod" – that keen British appreciation of all things American soul and R&B, but in the years before that love of the music had become too easily stereotyped. But whatever the genre, the set's a really great one – with a sweet Soul Cargo sort of groove that's presented with high fidelity and great notes on the club and its music! Titles include "Two Stupid Feet" by Chuck Jackson, "Zig Zag Lightning" by Little Johnny Taylor, "All About My Girl" by Jimmy McGriff, "Tell Me What You're Gonna Do" by James Brown, "Opportunity" by The Jewels, "Forget About Me" by Carolyn Crawford, "It's Me" by Johnny Copeland, "He's A Lover" by Tutti Hill, "Chica Boo" by Googie Rene Combo, and "The Hoochi Coochi Coo" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters.

✨✧ VariousMeet Me At The Hop – 33 Cruising Dreams ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of rock and roll dancefloor numbers served up by the folks at Bear Family – tracks that move fast, and which mix together group soul, R&B, and early rockers in a really great way – mostly upbeat, but with some nice mellow moments to help you catch your breath – nicely moving with a lot of variety through the 33 tracks in the set! We never would have put these tracks together in such a way – but that's always the genius of some of these Bear Family sets, as they not only have us discovering all sorts of tracks we never would have heard otherwise, but also falling in love with old favorites in this sort of setting. Titles include "Look At Little Sister" by Hank Ballard & the Midnighters, "Why I Am So Shy" by The Three Pennies, "Bumble Bee" by Lavern Baker, "Stars In The Sky" by The Chanters, "One Bad Stud" by The Honey Bears, "Lovers Never Say Goodbye" by The Flamingos, "A Picture Of You" by The Danleers, "Triangle" by Janie Grant, "Pickin On The Wrong Chicken" by The Five Stars, "Your Last Chance"by Lewis Lymon & The Teenchords, "Remember Then" by The Earls, "My Girl" by Darrell McCall, and "Ding Dong" by Tony Orlando.

✨✧ VariousR&B Hipshakers Vol 5 – Rocks In Your Head (with bonus 7 inch single) ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP & bonus 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from one of our favorite labels of all time – the mighty King Records, home to some of the best R&B material of the 50s, and some of the best cuts of the early soul years! Apart from the label's great fame and big hits, they also recorded countless other singles that barely got their due back in the day – which you'll hear here on a wonderful set of tracks that includes a fair bit of numbers that have never been reissued – a wealth of rare singles from King and related labels, all hand-picked by Mr Fine Wine, who's a funky 45 collecting legend! The music moves nicely between hard-edged R&B and early soul and funk numbers – and titles include "Not Much" by Rosemary, "Big Balls Of Fire" by Billy Soul, "You're Gonna Drive Me Crazy" by Dolph Prince, "I've Enjoyed Being Loved By You" by The Fabulous Denos, "Mr Hound Dog's In Town" by Roy Brown, "Lost In The Great Big City" by Sonny Thompson, "Jungle Dreams (part 2)" by Roy Estrada & The Rocketeers, "It Only Hurts A Little While" by Little Willie John, "Muskeeta" by Johnny Pate, "Rocks In Your Head" by Cora Woods, "The Boss" by Tonni Kalash, "Mama Wants To Drive" by The Zircons, and "It's Love Baby" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus 45 – with tracks by Kenny Marty and Lulu Reed!)

VariousLet's Go Latin – Vocal Group Harmonies ... CD
Koko Mojo, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A really great collection from a sometimes-overlooked stretch of vocal group music – a time in the 50s when a number of doo wop and early soul groups explored the use of Latin rhythms to change things up – an approach that makes for a mighty nice set of grooves to go along with the harmonies! Some of these tracks maybe just have a hint of Latin, but others have heavy percussion, and a nice mambo-inspired groove – and together, the 32 tracks on the set do a really wonderful job of illuminating this generation – with cuts that include "Joogie Boogie" by The Dubs, "Oh Carol" by Duo Dinamico, "Mambo Boogie" by The Harptones, "Send Me A Picture Baby" by The Starlarks, "E Basta Cosi" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, "Arriba" by Damal & Rasheed, "Juanita In Mexico" by Professor Hamilton & The Schoolboys, "Mexico" by The Rocketones, "Any Way You Wanta" by Harvey, "Do Be Do Be Wop" by The Squires, and "Down In Cuba" by The Royal Holidays.
