McKinley MitchellMcKinley Mitchell (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Chimneyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the few full albums ever issued by McKinley Mitchell – a deep soul singer with an equal amount of blues in his approach – and this great raspy approach to a lyric that's somewhere in between ZZ Hill and Bobby Blue Bland! The date of the album is 1978, but the whole thing has a vibe that could be years earlier – a really classic southern soul approach, with backings by a sweet studio combo that's clearly getting some great directly from James Stroud, who also helped with production. Things are nicely laidback and under-polished – and Mitchell's wonderful voice really gets to shine on tracks that include "Open House At My House", "You're So Fine", "The Town I Live In", "You Know I've Tried", "Run To Love", "Dream Lover", "End Of The Rainbow", and "Follow The Wind". CD features bonus tracks that include "Poverty", "Days Got Brighter", "Slave For Your Love", "Falling For Your Love", "Trouble Blues", and "When It Rains It Pours". CD

Little MiltonBack To Back ... CD
Malaco, 1988. Used ... $4.99
Little Milton's in some wonderful company here – recording at the best Malaco level of the 80s, which means an equal dose of deep soul and blues! Milton's voice has only gotten better over the years – and he's honestly a more expressive singer here than during the Chess years, really developed as a vocalist especially on the mellower numbers, which are completely sublime. There's still plenty of blues in the mix, and certainly some nice guitar – but the overall approach is more southern soul overall, as Milton really opens up on tunes written by greats like George Jackson, McKinley Mitchell, and the team of Banks & Hampton. Titles include "I Was Trying Not To Break Down", "Caught In The Act Of Getting It On", "Penitentiary Blues", "I Don't Believe In Ghosts", "The End Of The Rainbow", and "You Can't Trust Your Neighbor".

VariousTroubled Waters – Deep Soul From The Deep South ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. Used ... $13.99
A treasure trove of deep soul – featuring rare and unissued tracks by some of our favorite artists of the genre! The set goes way way past the usual collections of southern soul – to bring together obscure singles, album tracks, and rare vault material – going past the obvious mainstream of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, to include some totally incredible material! There's a very sophisticated vibe here overall – almost heading towards the mellow soul of the 70s north, but still recorded with an earthier quality that's steeped in traditions borrowed from gospel, and infused with the best that the secular south had to offer. An impeccable set throughout – as pleasing to any collector of rare soul as it is to a newcomer – with tracks that include "Warm Loving Man" by Carolyn Faye, "Two Wrongs Don't Make It Right" by Patterson Twins, "Troubled Waters" by Sam Dees, "If You See That Girl Of Mine" by Hank Sample, "The Town I Live In" by McKinley Mitchell, "When A Man Cries" by Joe Wilson, "A Quitter Never Wins" by Jimmy Dobbins, "Why Oh Why" by J Count Hughes, "I Won't Be The Last To Cry" by Eddie Houston, "Bluer Than Blue" by Ruby Wilson, and "I Believe In Love" by Billy Cee. 23 tracks in all – with great production and excellent notes!
