Jean KnightMr Big Stuff (UK cover) ... LP
Stax, 1970. Near Mint- ... $43.99
Jean Knight's classic – and a monumental album of funky female soul that was one of the best albums in the "second generation" Stax era, in the UK portrait cover! You probably know the title cut, as it was her biggest hit, and the inspiration for loads of "answer" songs (some of which came from the James Brown camp!) – but the whole album's great, and filled with raw female soul material produced by Wardell Quezquerque with an edge that's a bit harder than the usual Stax set of the time! Titles include "Mr Big Stuff", "Take Him", "Think It Over", "Your Six Bit Change", and "You City Slicker". LP, Vinyl record album

Jean KnightMr Big Stuff/Why I Keep Living These Memories ... 7-inch
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
A classic! "Mr Big Stuff" is Jean's enduring classic – a tight little groover with a hip feminist message, sampled by Schoolly D and others over the years, but equally wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jean Knight & PremiumKeep It Comin ... LP
Cotillion, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Jean's come a long way from her New Orleans roots on this one – working with singer Premium, and recording with Bobby Eli in a mode that's kind of a Philly moder update on the New York sound. The overall quality of the album's quite polished, but not in that perfect way that Bobby brings to his best work. Titles include "Does It Mean You Love Me", "One On One", "Keep It Comin", "What Are We Waiting For", and "You Got The Papers (But I Got The Man)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and tracklist sticker.)

✨✧ VariousSouth Texas Rhythm & Soul Revue Vol 2 – From The Vaults Of Crazy Cajun Records ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The great state of Texas turned out plenty of soul records in the 60s – and some of the best of them came from the hands of Huey P Meux – the legendary talent who's responsible for all the work on this set! Huey was also known as the Crazy Cajun – also the name of a label on which some of these cuts appeared – and his work shares a bit of the deeper, swampier sounds you might expect from Louisiana soul of the time, mixed with the rich bluesy currents that Texas had been turning out since the postwar years! The result is some stellar music that never fully got its due back in the day – tracks that maybe had a bit of regional fame, but never hit as big as sounds from Memphis or Muscle Shoals, which makes this collection such a great discovery – rare tracks by Texas artists, and other talents who were pulled down near the Houston scene for these recordings – all presented in a set of well-chosen tracks with some mighty nice notes. Titles include "Too Good To Be True" by The Traits, "Half A Man" by Charles Berry, "The Bad Times Make The Good Times" by Warren Storm, "T'Ain't It The Truth" by Jean Knight, "Strange Love" by Eugene Gamble, "All About Love" by Big Sam, "I'm Losing You" by Henry Moore, "Total Disaster" by Lee Maye, "At Your Wedding" by Jackie Paine, "You're Losing Me" by Jo Jo Benson, "Spunky Onions" by Johnny Adams, and "The Pleasures Of My Woman" by Rocky Gil & The Bishops.

✨✧ VariousSouth Texas Rhythm & Soul Revue – Rare Mid 60s R&B And Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smoking soul from 60s Texas – a tremendous amount of rare tunes from obscure little singles – pulled together to showcase the Lonestar State as a musical powerhouse to rival Motown, Philly, or the Windy City! The tracks here are all from various labels headed by the legendary Huey P Meux – and unlike other Texas work you may know from the time, lots of these numbers are bubbling over with the kind of soul elements you'd normally hear from east coast indie work of the time – and in that way, are almost like some of the other 60s material cut by southern transplants on the LA scene of the time – familiar, but a little offbeat too – with odd little twists and turns that really keep things interesting, and which make the package a really fresh musical discovery. There's some nice deep soul elements at times, particularly on the mellower cuts – and titles include "Go Go Train" by Jackie Paine, "That Is Why The End Must Begin" by Joe Masters, "Irene" by Rockin Dave Allen, "Time" by Charles Barry, "Get To Gitten" by Big Walter, "Doggin Around" by Jean Knight, "Friends In Show Business" by Joe Melvin, "Neighbor Neighbor" by Alton Valier, "You'll Lose A Good Thing (demo)" by Barbara Lynn, "Let Them Talk" by Johnny Adams, "If You're Looking For A Fool" by David King Thomas, and "Pick Me Up On Your Way Down" by Margo White.
