Jimmy JohnsonHeap See (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $22.99
A lean little set from Jimmy Johnson – recorded in France in the early 80s, but with the feel of an indie set on a small Chicago label from the decade before! Jimmy sings and plays guitar, and has a mighty sly way of working the two together – with a quality that kind of beats some of the bigger, braggier rising blues stars of the time – and which maybe makes Johnson all that much greater for his understated brilliance! The group's a quartet – with Hammond and piano from Jene Pickett – and titles include "Heap See", "Chicken Head", "When My First Wife Quit Me", "Happy Home", "Missing Link", and "Cold Cold Feeling". CD features bonus tracks – "Tobacco Road" and "I Don't Want No Woman". CD
(Part of the "True Blue Masters – Black & Blue" series!)

Howard JohnsonVision ... CD
A&M/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Solid 80s grooving soul from Howard Johnson – a singer who'd worked often with other, bigger artists – but who only cut a handful of albums under his own name. The set's got a lot of production help from Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, who make their presence known in the record's electrified bass and keys approach – but it's Johnson's strong presence as a lead singer that really holds the set together – a sweet little groover! Titles include "So Tuff", "Knees", "Stand Up", "Outta My Head", "Older Girl", "Show Me How", and "You've Got A Lot To Learn". CD

✨✧ JJ JohnsonEminent Jay Jay Johnson Vol 1 (Non RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1953. Used ... Just Sold Out!
First volume of the two LP set that compiled JJ's bop trombone sides for Blue Note. Great stuff, and arguably among some of his best work! The arrangements are tight, and JJ's in the company of players like Kenny Clarke, Clifford Brown, and Jimmy Heath – who push him with a dark edge that later bandmates never managed. The CD features some rare alternate takes, and titles include "Sketch", "Get Happy", "Capri", "Turpike" and "Lover Man". CD

JJ Johnson & Kai WindingJay & Kai + 6 ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $7.99
One of the flashiest Columbia sessions from the team of Kai Winding and JJ Johnson – but also one of the best! The record almost borders on gimmicky – with an 8-piece trombone section, and use of the unusual trombonium instrument – but thanks to some deft arranging, the sound is relatively tight without being goofy – and the pair manage to push the use of the trombone in jazz to new levels without resorting to silly tricks, as on Hi Fi albums of the period. Other trombonists include Urbie Green, Eddie Bert, and Jimmy Cleveland – and titles include "Rise N Shine", "Night In Tunisia", "No Moon At All", "Jeanne", "You're My Thrill", "Four Plus Four", and "You Don't Know What Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 6 eye pressing with deep groove in the "Jay & Kai" cover. Cover has some wear and aging, yellowed tape on the seams and spine, an index label at the top left corner, and name stamp on front and back. Labels have a sticker and name stamps.)

Blue Note, 1953. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant early work from Miles – recorded for Blue Note in 1953, featuring a sextet that includes JJ Johnson, Jimmy Heath, Gil Coggins, and Art Blakey. The tracks are short, but show Davis' increasing commitment to pushing the bop envelope – working modern and lyrical ideas into a space in which other players would have just been trying to keep up! The set features great remastering – and a total of 11 tracks in all, masters and alternates, with titles that include "Kelo", "Tempus Fugit", "Enigma", "Ray's Idea", and "CTA". CD

✨✧ Gil EvansOut Of The Cool – Into The Hot ... CD
Impulse/Not Now (UK), 1960/1961. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Two formative albums from Gil Evanson this double CD set! Out Of The Cool is a pivotal session for Gil Evans – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". Into The Hot is the harder of the two Gil Evans albums on Impulse to find, and the best – really far-reaching material that has Evans coming into contact with some of the hippest jazz players of his generation! The record's got three incredible tracks written by Cecil Taylor – a very bold move for Evans, given Taylor's strongly out reputation even at this point in his career – and possibly even more bold, given that Taylor's on the tracks playing piano, alongside players who include Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Sonny Murray, and Henry Grimes. The material's fantastic, and is a key part of Taylor's work at the time, and shows a very different setting for his piano – a bit of tension with the larger Evans group, in a way that's almost more compelling than his own early dates as a leader! Taylor titles include "Pots", "Bulbs", and "Mixed". The other tracks on the album were written by John Carisi, who wrote the classic "Israel" for Miles Davis' nine piece group in the late 40s – but who here contributes "Moon Taj", "Angkor Wat", and "Barry's Tune". Carisi's tracks are a bit more subdued, but no less wonderful – and arrangements are by Taylor and Carisi, of their own music, presented with the Evans modern touch. If you ever needed a record to convince you that Gil Evans was a genius, this is it! CD

Gary FarrAddressed To The Censors Of Love (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Atco/Big Pink (South Korea), 1973. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Gary Farr looks a bit sallow on the cover, and the title's a bit clunky too – but the album's got a tight roots rock vibe that's very different than what you might expect! Jerry Wexler produced the set at Muscle Shoals – and although Farr hails from the UK, he slides right into the best southern modes – turning out tracks that often have some nice twists that take them past the usual blue-eyed soul – as does his vocal delivery, which occasionally stretches farther than expectations, with some unusual phrasing that almost echoes some of the hipper singer/songwriter generation too. Instrumentation is by some of the best at Muscle Shoals – Roger Hawkins, David Hood, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Beckett, and others – and titles include "Breakfast Boogaloo", "Mexican Sun", "Faith What A Face", "Wailing Wall", and "Muggsy The Lard".

✨✧ Urbie GreenUrbie – East Coast Jazz Series No 6 ... CD
Bethlehem, 1955. Used ... $5.99
One of the strongest albums ever cut by trombonist Urbie Green – a player who had a heck of a lot of talent, but who unfortunately could sometimes end up in some schmaltzy settings. Fortunately, this isn't one of them – as the group includes players like Jimmy Lyon on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, Osie Johnson on drums, and Ike Horowitz on tenor – actually a nom-du-date for Al Cohn! The arrangements are tight, but never too much so – and there's a good degree of spirit in both the playing, and the compositions – some of which are by arranger Marion Evans. Titles include "Sneaky Pete", "Sassafras", "Melody In Bb", "How About You", and "Mutation". CD

Lionel HamptonOutrageous ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99
Later work from legendary jazz vibist Lionel Hampton – and a set that has him returning to the energy of the large group ensemble that first brought him fame in the 40s! Yet the style isn't 40s at all – and instead shows an evolved take on big band modes – similar to the great shift in the European scene of the 70s, as Hamp brings in a bit of electricity on the piano, organ, and guitar – mixing with a larger section of horns that have a surprisingly strong, screaming style – often over rhythms that are heavy in touches from funk and soul! Hamp gets to solo on the record, but the approach is often more focused on the overall sound too – in a lineup that includes Herman Riley and Paul Moen on saxes, Wild Bill Davis on organ, Walt Johnson and Oscar Brashear on trumpets, and George Bohannon, Tom McIntosh, Curtis Fuller, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombones! Tracks are nice and long, and full of colorful changes – on titles that include "Hamp & Dex", "Dr Lambchop", "Ko Ko", "Wail For The Cat", and "Tap Step". CD

Henry ManciniParty/The Great Race ... CD
BMG, 1965/1968. Used ... $14.99
Two soundtracks on one CD! The Party is a great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry Mancini! The tunes are very groovy – with a few chorus vocal numbers, and some other wonderful tracks that mix together bits of sitar, guitar, and horn blasts – creating a very lively instrumental groove. Plus, the music is played by a tight group of LA jazzmen – with Plas Johnson on tenor, Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Shelly Manne on drums – all musicians who really make things cook! Titles include instrumental and chorus versions of "Nothing To Lose", plus "Chicken Little Was Right", "Birdie Num Num", "Party Poop", "Wiggy", and "Brunette In Yellow". The Great Race is from 1965 – 10 more titles in all! CD

Esther MarrowSister Woman ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Very righteous work from Esther Marrow – a soul sister who sings with a hell of a lot of power! The set's an overlooked gem in the Fantasy catalog of the 70s, and it's one of only two secular soul albums cut by Marrow – and quite possibly the best of the bunch, too! Esther's got some great help on the set from arrangers Richard Tee, Bernard Purdie, and Bobby Scott – each of whom set Marrow up with some small group backing that keeps things tight and soulful throughout – thanks in big part to the drum work, which is handled by Purdie, Jimmy Johnson, and Idris Muhammad. Other players include Tee on organ and piano, Cornell Dupree on guitar, and Ralph McDonald on congas – whose percussion really helps shape the sound of most of the grooves. There's a horn section too – used sparingly – and there's also a bit of backing vocals from The Reflections, although Esther's pretty much in the lead on all numbers. Titles include "Trade Winds", "Things Ain't Right", "Ask Me To Dance", "Woman In The Window", and "Ghetto". CD

Nice obscure set of blues material recorded for United Artists – featuring the little-known Big Miller performing a set of 11 compositions from the pen of Langston Hughes. The backing on here is similar to that of a Jimmy Rushing album from the same time – as it includes arrangements by Budd Johnson, and small group playing by trad-oriented musicians like Chet Amsterdam, Barry Galbraith, Vic Dickenson, Al Cohn, and Jimmy Cleveland. Tracks include "Cool Saturday Night", "Five O'Clock Blues", "Did You Ever Hear The Blues?", "Lament", and "Got To Live". LP, Vinyl record album

Nelson RiddleRogues – Original Soundtrack ... LP
RCA, 1964. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A wonderful lost Nelson Riddle soundtrack – scored for the "gentlemen criminal" show The Rogues, which ran briefly on NBC during the mid 60s – starring Charles Boyer, Gig Young, and David Niven! The work is some of our favorite by Riddle during the period – lightly dreamy with strings one minute, and upbeat and jazzy the next – a full summation of the genius he'd developed during his years at Capitol, and made even better by some really swinging tunes! There's almost a Henry Mancini vibe to the whole thing, but the music also shows some of Riddle's more complex approaches to scoring – and the group features performances by west coast jazz musicians who include Plas Johnson and Harry Klee on reeds, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bob Bain on guitar, and Dick Nash on trombone. Titles include "A Rogue In Rio", "From Rogues To Riches", "Gig", "Marcel", "Ilsa", "Latin Lady", and "One For The Rogue". LP, Vinyl record album

TimeTime (2LP red & white vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy 2LP ... $30.99 31.98
The groundbreaking first album from The Time – a set that very firmly put the Minneapolis soul scene on the map, served up by a lineup that was maybe even more of a supergroup than Prince's band at the time! And while most folks credit Prince with helping The Time get their start, these guys already have plenty of fantastic power of their own – no surprise, given that this early version of the group still featured Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, before they went off to become production giants on their own – plus wicked guitar from Jesse Johnson, and beautifully dynamic vocals from the great Morris Day! Titles include "Get It Up", "Girl", After Hi School", "The Stick", "Oh Baby", and the 10 minute jam "Cool", one of our favorite cuts of the early 80s! Great 2LP pressing – with bonus single cuts that include "Cool (parts 1 & 2)", "After Hi School (single edit)", "The Stick (single edit)", and "Get It Up (single edit)". LP, Vinyl record album

Traffic get some help here from Muscle Shoals heavyweights Barry Beckett, Roger Hawkins, and Jimmy Johnson – a trio who help the group continue that richer, more expanded sound that was first unfurled on the group's Low Spark album! The sound is maybe a more focused attempt at territory from that record, but one that also really stretches things out too – long tracks that have just the right balance, and which never make the extra long space of the tunes feel like their wasted at all – just perfect settings for the energy of the tunes composed by Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi. Titles include "Roll Right Stones", "Tragic Magic", "Evening Blue", and "Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory". CD

✨✧ VariousKent & Modern Records Blues Into The 60s Vol 1 – Dirty Work Going On ... CD
Ace/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A huge collection of rare blues material from west coast powerhouse label Kent/Modern Records – a really important indie during the postwar R&B scene in LA, still going strong here well into the 60s! Modern was a real pioneer in recording electrified blues during the 50s – maybe every bit as important as Chess Records, with a roster of talent that drew from the Memphis and Texas scenes, and which also included blues musicians who'd migrated west as well! The Modern approach always lived up to its name – helping evolve rootsier styles into more sophisticated modes, often unlocking currents of jazz and nascent soul in the music – so that by the time of the 60s, the company (and its related Kent Records imprint) kept on moving things forward – recording so much amazing work, a good deal of it was never even issued on record at the time. That's definitely the case here – as the collection brings together a large number of tracks that either appear here for the first time ever, or which didn't make their debut until Japanese CD releases back in the 90s – brought together in a collection of 26 tracks with plenty of appeal for fans of raw soul too. Titles include "Blues In G Minor" by Big Jay McNeely, "Let Me Be Your Eagle Baby (take 1)" by King Solomon, "Go Ahead (take 1)" by Fillmore Slim, "Jimmy's Special" by Little Joe Blue, "Sweet Little Angel" by Larry Davis, "Jealous Woman" by T-Bone Walker, "On My Way Back Home (alt)" by Flash Terry, "Fast Gun Annie" by Billy Ray, "Consider Yourself (ext)" by Stacy Johnson, "Down Now (take 3)" by BB King, "New Figure" by King Solomon, and "One Thing We Know" by Flash Terry.

A great collection of rare 45s from the powerhouse TK Records label and all it's many smaller imprints – Dade, Glades, Alston, and many others – brought here together with a focus on a really special side of the label! TK was one of the first to really promote the 12" single in the disco generation – but before, during, and after the label maintained a strong commitment to the funky 45 too – and really used the format to showcase some of its stronger soul singers, in a way that made sure that the 7" singles packed plenty of punch! This set features 24 of those rare nuggets from TK, with plenty of obscure numbers in the lineup – and titles include "All Because Of Your Love" by Otis Clay, "Rules Are Made To Be Broken" by The Diamonettes, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "I Can't Speak" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Don't Waste My Time" by Jerry Washington, "Hold On To It" by Barry Smith, "Please Don't Stop" by Wildflower, "Stop Hurting Me Baby" by Purple Mundi, "One Night Affair" by The Rising Sun, "That Is Why" by Sherlyn Wittiker & Touch, "Even Though" by King Tutt, "Do What You Wanna Do (part 1)" by Frank Howard & The Continentals, and "How Can I Do What's Right" by Vanessa Kendrick.

Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This is the rare first take of Ascension, and it differs greatly from the second take, which is the more widely available one. It's designated by the fact that the recording doesn't say "Version II" on the runoff groove. One of the freest, most exploratory albums ever recorded by Coltrane – and a unique session done with an expanded group of some of the most important avant jazz players of his generation! The format here is similar to Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz album – in that the music is freely improvised, and spans the entire LP as a non-stop performance – one that has Coltrane in the lead, but which also features alto from Marion Brown and John Tchicai, tenor from Archie Shepp and Pharaoh Sanders, trumpet from Freddie Hubbard and Dewey Johnson – and core rhythms from McCoy Tyner on piano, drums from Elvin Jones, and double basses from Art Davis and Jimmy Garrison. The record set the format for larger improvisatory groups in years to come – but is still one of the best examples of the form! LP, Vinyl record album

The set's a totally strong batch of gospelly soul tracks – produced by Al Bell with that great early 70s Stax deep soul sound – at a point that's still without the sort of cliche that might hold back material of this type in later years. Instrumentation is by Clayton Ivey on Hammond, Barry Beckett on keyboards, and Jimmy Johnson and Eddie Hinton on guitar – and titles include "Getting Too Big For Your Britches", "Today Was Tomorrow Yesterday", "Something Ain't Right", "My Main Man", "Blood Pressure", "Who Made The Man", "Back Road Into Town", and "If It Ain't One Thing It's Another". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has lightly bent corners and a cutout notch.)

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – Twinight's Lunar Rotation ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best look at Chicago's legendary Twinight label that we've ever seen – a massive 2CD set that goes way past the obvious hits, and really digs into the heart and soul of this unique little record company! Twinight is best known as the home of Syl Johnson during his legendary run of funky soul singles at the end of the 60s – but the company was also home to a lot of other great talent during the same stretch – harmony vocal groups, sweet soul singers, funky combos, and more – all of which you'll hear in this incredible little set! (And in fact, the set does such a great job of presenting the other artists on Twinight, that it leaves out Syl Johnson entirely – so the package is a 100% non-Syl set – which is ok with us, because you can always get Johnson's work on other reissues.) The Numero Group have really outdone themselves this time around – using their careful ear to pull out the best lost bits from Twinight, remastered here with wonderful sound – and a brilliant 32 page booklet that tells the story of the label, and also includes loads of vintage photos. The set's a must-have for any fan of quality funk or soul – and the package includes a whopping 40 titles that include "Goin Man Huntin" by Jo Ann Garrett, "I've Made Up My Mind" by Josephine Taylor, "A New Day" by The Notations, "Nevermore" by Renaldo Domino, "Yesterday's Mistakes" by Jimmy Jones, "I'll Always Love You" by Velma Perkins, "Life Walked Out" by Mist, "Put Out The Fire by Mystiques, "You & Me Baby" by Kaldirons, "Rosemarie" by Dynamic Tints, "Remind Me" by Schiller Street Gang, "Is It Meant To Be" by Krystal Generation, "Pardon My Innocent Heart" by Nate Evans, "Package Of Love (part 1)" by Dynamic Tints, "The Devastator" by Stormy, "Mama" by Annette Poindexter, "Pass It On (part 1)" by Pipes Of Peace, "My Sunshine Girl" by Radiants, "Let Me Come Within" by Renaldo Domino, "Soul Strokes" by Sidney Pinchback, and "Can You Find Me Love" by Harrison & The Majestic Kind.

✨✧ VariousFunky Funky Chicago – Rare & Unreissued Chicago Funk From The Vaults Of Mod-Art, Stuff & Scorpio Records 1973 to 1977 ... CD
Funky Delicacies, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chicago gets funky – but you didn't need to tell us that, since we've been here all our lives! Boasting aside, though, the compilation is amazing – a motherlode of heavy funk from the underground of the city – a wealth of small-label funky tracks that barely got proper release even back in the day! The package includes some of our favorite funky 45s of the 70s – the kind of singles that we've been loving for years, and which it's finally great to see get proper reissue. The whole thing's great – even more solid than any of the other Funky Funky reissue series – with titles that include the stunning "Funky Funky Christmas" by Electric Jungle, "I've Got To Space" by Georgianna McCoy & The Classetts, "Cut Me In" by The Chosen Few, "Let's Get A Line (parts 1 & 2)" by Jimmy Johnson & The Lucky Hearts, "43rd Street Bus Stop" by Mack Simmons & Jimmy Mitchell, "Away From Home" by Eddie Houston, "Get Up Off Your Rusty Dusty" by Casey Jones, "We Got To Love One Another" by The Rock, and "We Are The Chosen Few" by The Chosen Few.

✨✧ Miles DavisEnigma (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1952/1953. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real enigma from Miles Davis – rare material from the Blue Note vaults, issued here for the first time ever – and done as a totally sweet 10" album! The cover and package are great – and the music is even better – very much in the most sparkling spirit of Davis' early 10" albums for Blue Note – with a lineup that includes JJ Johnson on trombone, Jimmy Heath on tenor, Jackie McLean on alto sax, Gil Coggins on piano, Percy Heath or Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Art Blakey or Kenny Clarke on drums! Titles include "Enigma (alt take 1)", "Kelo (alt take 1)", "Chance It (alt take 3)", and "Chance It (alt take 4)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisMiles Davis Vol 1 (Blue Note 1501) ... LP
Blue Note, Early 50s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant early work by Miles Davis – some of his first truly important sessions to appear under his own name, recorded with players that include Jimmy Heath, JJ Johnson, Gil Coggins, Art Blakey, Kenny Clarke, Jackie McLean, and Oscar Pettiford. Tunes are shorter, and perhaps more boppish, than you might expect from some of Miles' other 50s work – but in a way that still allows for many moments of lyrical beauty, and that brilliantly cool sound of his which forever changed the sound of jazz trumpet. Titles include "Tempus Fugit", "Kelo", "Enigma", "Ray's Ida", and "CTA". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono West 63rd Street pressing, with RVG stamp and ear – and deep groove on side 2. Cover has two cutout holes, a bit of seam splitting, and a very light mark from an old sticker.)

Cuts include "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman", "Chain Of Fools", "Money Won't Change You", "Come Back Baby", and "Ain't No Way".

✨✧ VariousMessage From TK – It's A Miami Modern Soul World ... CD
TK/Solid (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soulful message from the 70s – served up here on a collection that focuses on a mighty nice side of the TK Records label from back in the day! TK hit big fame with its Miami spin on disco in the mid 70s, but the label also had a great ear for other sorts of soul music too – and here, the focus is on the warmer, more sophisticated modern soul tracks that marked their output away from the chart hits – work created in the south, but with a hip vibe that resonates strongly with the best work in New York, Philly, or other northern cities. The tracks are all hand-picked by DJ Ryuhei The Man – who also does his own edits of a few tracks – and the set also features some rare singles from artists who never recorded a full album for TK. Titles include "All This Love That I'm Givin" by Gwen McCrae, "I Like My Birdie" by Leno Phillips, "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "Bessie" by JBs Wedge, "It's Your Sweet Love" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "The Way We Life" by Raw Soul Express, "Where Is The Love" by Betty Wright, "Listen To My Heartbeat" by Little Beaver, "Human (Ryuhei The Man express 45 edit)" by Brief Encounter, "What Am I Gonna Do (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Reid Inc, and "Be With Me (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Milton Wright.

✨✧ VariousOn The Soul Side – 26 Soul Grooves ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic compilation gets upgraded in a mighty nice way – as a huge tribute to the many years of soul and funk we've gotten from the Ace/Kent label in London! Back at the start of the 80s, the company was one of the first to properly repress rare American soul, and do it the right way – not only with top-shelf sound quality, but also a strong sense of history that has had us learning as much about 60s and 70s soul from their compilations as we've found ourselves loving the music! The original On The Soul Side album was one of the first Kent titles from the early years – but here, it's expanded to a whopping 26 titles, with great sound and detailed notes – all to present over two dozen tracks that really show the farther reaches of 60s soul beyond Motown and the big chart hits. Titles include "Boy Watcher" by Ginger Thompson, "Baby I Love You" by Jimmy Holiday, "Dr Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Love & Desire" by Patrice Holloway, "A Lot Of Love" by Homer Banks, "It's What's Underneath That Counts" by June Jackson, "Point Of No Return" by Gene McDaniels, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "It Was Easier To Hurt Her" by Garnet Mimms, "The Record" by HB Barnum, "Love Is A Hurtin Thing" by Lou Rawls, "Nothing Left To Do But Cry" by Merry Clayton, "The Man Who Don't Believe In Love" by Marv Johnson, "What You Gonna Do" by Bobby Womack, "Nobody Treats You The Way I Do" by The Magnificent Men, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "What's A Matter Baby" by Timi Yuro, "Ready Willing & Able" by Jimmy Holiday & Clydie King, and "Trick Bag" by Earl King.
