Otis ReddingBest Of Otis Redding ... LP
Atlantic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $21.99
A well-selected batch of work from one of the greatest soul singers of all time – and cuts that are presented here in rare mono mixes, all taken from the original mono tapes! The work includes important early sides that Redding cut at Stax Records – where he was the reigning star – plus a few issued after his untimely early death by Atlantic Records, who got their hands on Redding material that was still unreleased – and which gave Otis some of his biggest chart success in the years after he left the planet. The set list is fantastic throughout – the blueprint for so much deep soul to come from later generations – and the package features 16 titles that include "Mr Pitiful", "Stand By Me", "Pain In My Heart", "These Arms Of Mine", "That's How Strong My Love Is", "Respect", "My Girl", "Satisfaction", "Dock Of The Bay", "Hard To Handle", "I've Got Dreams To Remember", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Shake", and "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)".

Otis ReddingDock Of The Bay ... CD
Volt/Rhino, 1968. Used ... $2.99
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set the stage for the mythologies of pop stars that would surround the tragedies in the coming years of the late 60s – with liner notes on the back by Jon Landau about the impact of Redding's work and passing on the rest of the music industry, which would be even more charged with meaning to folks buying the album at the time, who certainly knew that Redding had cut "Dock of the Bay" a few days before his death, and had missed its meteoric rise to #1 after his passing. And in fact, the album itself is more of a loose collection of tracks pulled from singles and other sources to cash in on Redding's passing – and includes odd numbers like "The Huckle Buck", which had previously appeared on a Stax promo album, or "Tramp", his famous funky duet with Carla Thomas. Other titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Ole Man Trouble", "Open The Door", and "Let Me Come On Home". CD

Otis ReddingLive At The Whisky A Go Go – The Complete Recordings (6CD set) ... CD
Stax, 1966. New Copy 6 CDs ... $45.99 59.98
The complete document of a legendary live recording by Otis Redding – material that not only shows a slightly different side of Redding than his studio albums for Stax – but which also continued to flow out in parts, issued after his too-early death, as a way of keeping his music alive! During the 60s, as Otis recorded his classics for Stax, he was also spending an insane amount of time performing live – hitting the road constantly, as live performance was the way he could really make a living – to a point where his presence on the stage was incredible, and Redding had blossomed into a hell of an entertainer, instead of just a simple singer of songs! The power of that level of performance really comes through here – material that comes from three nights of live performance in Los Angeles, with a huge amount of work appearing here for the first time ever, especially in correct order and format. Over the course of the whopping 6CDs in the set, Otis moves through familiar numbers, some key covers, and a few surprising tracks – and a number of selections are even longer than usual. Redding seems to especially take off on his covers – turning in extended versions of cuts like "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and "Satisfaction" – but the whole thing is great. 65 tracks in all, with great notes and a poster too!

Otis ReddingLonely & Blue – The Deepest Soul Of Otis Redding (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Stax, Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
A very cool idea – and a set that works together almost as a "lost" Otis Redding album – from the cover art right down to the grooves on the disc! The package focuses on the deepest, bluest side of Otis Redding – his amazing talent for a heartbreaking song and a sad-tinged ballad – of the sort that it seemed like Otis sang better than anyone else! This well-done collection brings together a few well-known numbers and other overlooked gems – all in a package that has a really unified theme and sound, and which almost feels like some concept album that Stax developed back in the 60s, but never released. Titles include "Gone Again", "A Waste Of Time", "These Arms Of Mine", "I've Got Some Dreams To Remember (rougher dreams)", "Open The Door (skeleton key version)", "Everybody Makes A Mistake", "Free Me", and "Little Ol Me".

Otis Redding & Carla ThomasKing & Queen ... CD
Stax/Atlantic, 1967. Used ... $8.99
A legendary collaboration between Otis Redding and Carla Thomas – the former of whom was definitely the king of the Memphis soul scene at the time of the record's release, and the latter of whom was certainly going for the title of queen with her power on the record! Carla here is a lot more raw soul than on some of her other records of the 60s – really hitting the spirit of both Redding's own music, and the playful vibe of the Stax approach – trading lines with Otis in a really badass way, especially on the album's classic funk track "Tramp" – which was sampled often in the early hip hop years! Otis is great too – maybe less iconic, but in a great way – and his match with Carla may well blow away some of the Motown male/female records from the time. In addition to "Tramp", other titles include "Bring It On Home To Me", "Ooh Carla Ooh Otis", "Lovey Dovey", and "New Year's Resolution". CD

✨✧ Otis ReddingDictionary Of Soul - Complete & Unbelievable ... LP
Volt, 1964. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An album with a very fitting title – as the whole set is practically a dictionary of soul music, for anyone who needs an understanding of the genre! The cover alone tells you that the set is something special – and the sounds within are even better – classic Otis Redding on Stax Records, at a time when he'd already gotten his initial groove going, and was really pushing into that later, more sophisticated style that had him crossing boundaries and opening up the music for a whole new generation! Key proof of this is his remake of "Try A Little Tenderness" – a standard that had been knocking around for years, but which is exploded with a whole new emotion in Otis' version – as are tunes like "Day Tripper" and "Tennessee Waltz", with results that are maybe not as completely sublime – but which still illustrate the way that Redding was reaching way beyond the indie soul scene with his appeal. But even better are the cuts intrinsic to the album – beautiful originals that include "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)", "My Lover's Prayer", "Ton Of Joy", "I'm Sick Y'All", and "She Put The Hurt On Me" – which really demonstrate Redding's growing strengths as a songwriter.

"Sweet Lorene" the perfect counterpoint cut, a harder hitting southern soul gem that's as sweaty as the other side is intimate. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousHard To Handle – Black America Sings Otis Redding ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The music of Otis Redding – sung by some of his hippest contemporaries, and by a whole new generation inspired by his talents! The tunes here are all numbers you'd know from Redding's famous recordings for Stax and Atlantic – yet the versions are nice and fresh – some done with a gritty down-home feel that's rougher than any of Redding's records, others done with an inventive style that pushes the music forward into new modes – possibly those that Otis might have explored on his own, had he not been taken from us so soon! The package is a great testament to the Otis Redding legacy in soul music – and is filled with a whopping 25 tracks, all of them well-chosen – including "Baby Cakes" by Maxine Brown, "Just One More Day" by Clarence Carter, "Give Away None Of My Love" by Buddy Miles, "Wholesale Love" by Arthur Conley, "Hawg For You" by Tina Britt, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Chained & Bound" by Bettye Swann, "I'm Missing You" by Mitty Collier, "Sister Pitiful" by Judy Clay, "These Arms Of Mine" by Albert Washington & The Kings, "Monkey On My BacK" by Jackie Hairston – plus the previously unreleased "Loving By The Pound (part 2)" by Otis Redding himself!

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoAncient To The Future ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1987. Used ... $19.99
The Art Esemble of Chicago pay tribute to a surprising range of influences – from Duke Ellington to Otis Redding to Fela Kuti and Jimi Hendrix – but all in a set that's still filled with plenty of their trademark creative improvisation, too! In a way, the record's a great illustration of the changes that had come to the AACM over the course of two decades – still bold enough to break down new territory in jazz, but also feeling confident enough to claim a key role in, and link to, a larger history of African-American expression – one that's handled quite deftly here by the group! Lee Bowie joins the group a bit on synth, a relatively small addition to the core sounds from Lester Bowie on trumpet, Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell on reeds, Malachi Favors on bass, and Don Moye on percussion. Titles include a firey reading of Fela's "Zombie", which is great, plus covers of "No Woman No Cry", "Purple Haze", "These Arms Of Mine", and "Creole Love Call" – and the group's own "Ancient To The Future" suite.

Charles BradleyBlack Velvet ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
The great Charles Bradley left this planet all too soon – and although we've got this final album of music to enjoy, it's only a partial consolation for Bradley's early departure! The set's maybe a bit like some of the albums of Otis Redding material that were issued after his passing – in that there's some cuts here that were singles, mixed with unissued songs that really show Bradley on top of his game – working strongly with the Menehan Street Band at a level that really has us wanting more! Some of these tunes have a sharply righteous vibe – maybe even more edge than before from Charles – which makes the whole thing not just a completely essential addition to his catalog, but also a way of pointing towards a future that might have been. Titles include "Can't Fight The Feeling", "Luv Jones", "I Feel A Change", "Black Velvet", "Fly Little Girl", "Victim Of Love (electric version)", "Slip Away", and "Heart Of Gold".

Solomon BurkeKing Of Rock N Soul – The Atlantic Recordings 1962 to 1968 (3CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Essential work from the legendary Solomon Burke – one of the greatest singers to record for Atlantic Records during the 60s – and an artist we'd put right up there next to Aretha Franklin or Otis Redding! Like both of those giants, Solomon has a style that's completely his own – almost a blueprint for deep soul, southern soul, and 60s soul all together at once – never captured as well or as perfectly as during the mid 60s years he recorded for Atlantic! There's nobody like Solomon Burke during these Atlantic years – a hard-edged singer who was virtually inventing deep soul at the time – taking currents from earlier R&B years, and folding them with a brash, bold energy that was completely heartfelt – and which drew on the same sort of styles that southern soul singers would make their own a few years later – as you'll see by the dates here, Burke predates work by Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, and Wilson Pickett. The package features 3CDS, and a massive 79 tracks in all – the biggest collection of Burke's work for Atlantic that we've ever seen – with tracks that include "I'm Hanging Up My Heart For You", "Baby", "Gotta Travel On", "Peepin", "Yes I Do", "The Price", "You're Good For Me", "Beautiful Brown Eyes", "When She Touches Me", "Keep Lookin", "Woman How Do You Make Me Love You Like I Do", "Presents For Christmas", "What'd I Say", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "This Little Ring", "It's All Right", "How Many Times", "Cry To Me", "Hard Ain't It Hard", "Mountain Of Pride", "I Feel A Sin Coming On", and lots lots more! A fantastic set – all 6 of Solomon's albums for Atlantic, plus non-LP cuts recorded for the label. CD

Arthur ConleyI'm Living Good – The Soul Of Arthur Conley 1964 to 1974 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A deep deep deep collection of work from Arthur Conley – one that really shows the true spectrum of his mighty soul talents – and which goes way past his few overplayed hits of the 60s! The focus here is on slow-burners and mellow groovers – tunes that really bring out the depth of Conley's southern soul vocals – a richness that's right up there with his one-time mentor Otis Redding, recorded brilliantly at the legendary Fame studios! The label-spanning collection brings together material for the Atlantic, Fame, Jotis, Ru-Jac, and Capricorn labels – and has the usual top-shelf Ace Records presentation of detailed notes with vintage photos and label scans as well. Titles include "Let's Go Steady", "God Bless", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "There's A Place For Us", "Take Me", "Where You Lead Me", "Stop Knocking", "I Want Your Love", "Otis Sleep On", "Put Our Love Together", "Let Nothing Separate", and "Walking On Eggs".

✨✧ Joe HaywoodWarm & Tender Soul ... CD
Playback, Mid 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The first-ever full length collection of work from Joe Haywood – a deep soul singer with Carolina roots, but who mostly recorded for Bobby Robinson's family of labels up in Harlem – on rare singles for Fury, Enjoy, and Rampage – all of which are collected here with other great work from Haywood too! Joe's a hell of a singer – very much in the mode of Otis Redding or Percy Sledge – with a hard-burning intensity that never seems to dim at all – and which gets some great southern-styled backings throughout on these excellent tracks from the mid 60s. In fact, the material really feels like the best coming out from Stax or Atlantic at the time – and we're hard-pressed to explain why Joe never hit the big time like some of his contemporaries. But thankfully, he's at least getting some overdue exposure on this full length collection – on titles that include "Hand In Hand", "Warm & Tender Soul", "I Would If I Could", "Debt Of Love", "In Your Heart You Know I Love You", "Strong Feeling", "Say You Will", "Let's Walk Together", and "Talk To Me Baby".

Capricorn/Reel Music, 1978. Used ... $4.99
A really great set of later southern soul from Eddie Hinton – recorded at Muscle Shoals with a nice 70s take on the classic 60s style of the genre – with powerful vocals from Hinton! The record's surprisingly rootsy for the time – and Eddie sings in a wonderful mode that has plenty of traces of Otis Redding and James Carr. The production has a modern touch, but never in a way that smooths out the real gritty soulfulness – and on these numbers, the album isn't out of step with some of the nice mid 70s work of Arthur Alexander or Paul Kelly. A genuine gem! Titles include "Get Off In It", "I Got The Feeling", "You Got Me Singing", "Yeah Man", Shout Bamalama", "Brand New Man", and "Shoot The Moon". CD

Titles include "Class (Is What You Got)", "If You Feel It", "Main Nerve", "Hurts So Bad", "Love Dance", "Love Is Over" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Percy Sledge2 Originals Of Percy Sledge (When A Man Loves A Woman/Warm & Tender Soul) ... LP
Atlantic (Germany), 1966. Near Mint- 2LP ... $14.99
An overseas collection from the 70s, one that brings together two early gems from deep soul singer Percy Sledge! First up is When A Man Loves A Woman – a stone classic from Percy Sledge – and a set that really put southern soul on the map! Along with the familiar title hit – one of those tunes you'll recognize instantly – the album's a treasure trove of deep soul numbers – done under the supervision of Quin Ivy, in Sheffield, Alabama – with a sound that's a bit different than the more familiar Memphis and Muscle Shoals styles of the 60s – yet equally great! There's a slow-burning vibe here that virtually set the tone for a whole generation – energy that's more even-keeled than Otis Redding, with a subtle power that will haunt you for years – thanks to Percy's sweet crackling vocals. Titles include "When A Man Loves A Woman", "Love Me Like You Mean It", "You're Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "Put A Little Lovin On Me", "Love Me All The Way", and "You Fooled Me". Next is Warm & Tender Soul – a beautiful illustration of the sound that made Percy Sledge one of the deepest soul singers to record for Atlantic in the 60s! Sledge has this raspy power that grabs us right from the start – that quality that made his music resonate strongly with Otis Redding at the time, yet with a very different personality too – suffused in warm southern soul production by the great Quinn Ivy, who turns in some of his best work ever with the album! There's a rawness here that makes you feel like Sledge is going to break down at any moment – yet the album's held together perfectly too – with that special sort of magic you only find in a rare few albums this great. Titles include a great version of Dan Penn & Lindam Oldham's "It Tears Me Up", plus "I Stand Accused", "Oh How Happy", "Love Me Tender", "Warm And Tender Love", "Oh How Happy", "Sweet Woman Like You", "So Much Love", and "Heart Of A Child".

Stax/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1960s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99
A long-overdue collection of the wealth of work that Carla Thomas did for Stax Records in the 60s – the wonderfully rich first section of her career, when the label was working in strong partnership with Atlantic Records! Carla's the daughter of Memphis soul legend Rufus Thomas – who first brought her to Stax, and helped launch her career – yet right from the start, it was clear that the younger Thomas was a star waiting to shine on her own – one of the first deep soul divas of the 60s to also showcase a strength for more sophisticated styles too – a bit like the blend that Aretha Franklin was recording at Columbia before moving to Atlantic – territory that Carla Thomas clearly held first in the heart of the label! The box brings together 94 tracks in all – a huge amount of Stax material, including all her duets with Otis Redding and Rufus Thomas – plus singles and b-sides too – all with a great presentation and a huge booklet of notes. Titles include "Let Me Be Good To You (live)", "Let It Be Me", "Night Time Is The Right Time", "What Have You Got To Offer Me", "Never Let You Go", "It Takes Two", "Knock On Wood", "Fate", "Looking Back", "For You", "I Didn't Believe", "The Puppet", "What A Fool I've Been", "The Life I Live", "I Fall To Pieces", "Winter Snow", "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby", "No Time To Lose", "How Do You Quit", and lots lots more!

Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Key years in the Bert Berns story – that magical mid 60s period when Berns was coming up with some killer soul sides, and a few famous rockers too! The sound here is tremendous – kind of a "wall of sound" to New York soul – that marvelous style that's also known as uptown soul, for its careful production and sense of class. Some of the most important Berns moments are collected here, alongside lesser-known gems that really round out the sound – including 8 tracks appearing on CD for the first time, which should be plenty to peak the interest of any 60s soul collectors (as if the great Ace notes and package weren't enough!) Production is wonderful throughout, and the set list features some killer Atlantic/Atco singles – plus other gems from smaller indies of the period – cuts that include "Mojo Mama" by Don Varner, "No One Could Ever Love You" by Freddie Scott, "Show Me Your Monkey" by Kenny Hamber, "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" by Solomon Burke, "It Was Easier To Hurt Her" by Garnett Mimms, "I Went Out With My Baby Tonight" by Moses K & The Prophets, "Run Mascara" by The Exciters, "Cry No More" by Ben E King, "Mr Success" by Bobby Harris, "Gone Gone" by Roy C, "Better Not Believe Him" by Barbara Lewis, "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison, "I Got To Go Back" by Otis Redding, "If I Would Marry You" by Tammy Montgomery, and "Come On Girl" by The Knight Brothers.

Stax/Volt/Atlantic, 1950s. Used 9 CDs ... $43.99
This is it! A pretty darn complete document of one of the greatest soul labels of all time – put together in a wonderful box with a book on the label that's almost as great as the music on the 9CDs in the set! This one established a new standard for box sets when it was issued in 1991, and it was the first time you could really get a clear picture of the great work of Stax without spending a lifetime tracking down obscure singles. A portion of this work will be familiar to you – as it includes classic tunes by the likes of Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd, The Bar-Kays, Booker T & The MGs, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, William Bell, and others – but there's also a wealth of amazing soul by artists who recorded for Stax and Volt, yet never made it big on the charts, and never cut full albums for the label. Just a small amount of these folks include The Memphis Nomads, Jeanne & The Darlings, Derek Martin, Barbara & The Browns, Eddie Jefferson, The Tonettes, Macy Skipper, The Premiers, Sir Isaac & The Do-Dads, Ruby Johnson, Bobby Wilson, Eddie Purrell, Sir Mack Rice, and many others. A lifetime of listening in one box – and an essential set if you dig 60s soul! This is the nicely compact jewel case version – 9CDs in a box that's roughly 6" square. CD

The package was put together by the folks at Harmless, and it's got the same care as their excellent soul reissues – a very thoughtful lineup of 20 tracks that includes "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" by Ann Sexton, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by The Impressions, "Merry Christmas Baby" by Otis Redding, "My Gift To You" by Alexander O'Neal, "Christmas Time Is Here Again" by The Flirtations, "You & Me This Christmas" by Natasha Watts, "I Love Christmas" by Eugene Wilde, "Let It Snow" by Boyz II Men with Brian McKnight, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by The Whispers, "This Christmas" by Stephanie Mills, "I Want To Come Home For Christmas" by Marvin Gaye, and "Cold Cold Winter In The Ghetto" by Lonnie Hill.

✨✧ VariousStax Of Funk – The Funky Truth ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 22.99
Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... CD
Stax/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Circuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

VariousSuper Hits Vol 2 ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
While this is the sort of collection labels churn out as a loss leader, to spark interest in their artists, this set actually shows off the depth of talent in the Atlantic catalog throughout the 60s. Mostly soul and R&B, but with a few pop numbers too, the twelve song set plays great as sampler of some of the top sounds of the late 60s: Wilson Pickett "Funky Broadway", Aretha Franklin "Baby I Love You", The Rascals "Groovin", Sam & Dave "Soul Man", Te Bar-Kays "Soul Finger", Joe Tex "Skinny Legs And All", Aretha Franklin "Chain Of Fools", Otis Redding "Dock Of The Bay", Sonny & Cher "The Beat Goes On", The Bee Gees "To Love Somebody", Buffalo Springfield "For What It's Worth" and The Fireballs featuring Jimmy Gilmer "Bottle Of Wine".

✨✧ Paul NeroSoul Party – 28 Sensational Soul Hits ... LP
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record with a hokey cover and an unassuming title – but a wicked little set that's filled with funky soul throughout! Paul Nero's a German artist, and he's working here in a style that was common to Euro recordings of the time – a medley-heavy approach that stacked together a few already-short pop covers into a 2 or 3 minute combo played with plenty of energy. In the hands of most others, the style was often flat – but here Nero really makes it move mightily – often with a good undercurrent of funk on the bottom, and a great sense of soul! Highlights include the killer break track "This Is Soul/Soul Finger/Soul Man" – plus "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa/Mr Pitiful/Mustang Sally", "Shake/Stagger Lee/Land Of 1000 Dances", "Tribute To Otis Redding/You Keep Me Running Away", and "Hold On I'm Coming/Soul Reaction/Tramp".

✨✧ ReddingsClass ... CD
Believe In A Dream/PTG (Netherlands), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice early 80s set from The Reddings – the group featuring two sons of Otis Redding and a sweet set of funk steeped R&B! Dexter Redding plays bass, and there's a whole lot of bass in the mix, bringing some funk into the groove very nicely – with some post disco pop soul melodic numbers, that work very well, too. The Reddings bring out a mix of tighter, leaner numbers with pop funk style with a couple of sweet, string accented slow jams on Class and it's solid stuff! Titles include "Class (Is What You Got)", "If You Feel It", "Main Nerve", "Hurts So Bad", "Love Dance", "Love Is Over" and more. CD

✨✧ Percy SledgeWhen A Man Loves A Woman ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A stone classic from Percy Sledge – and a set that really put southern soul on the map! Along with the familiar title hit – one of those tunes you'll recognize instantly – the album's a treasure trove of deep soul numbers – done under the supervision of Quin Ivy, in Sheffield, Alabama – with a sound that's a bit different than the more familiar Memphis and Muscle Shoals styles of the 60s – yet equally great! There's a slow-burning vibe here that virtually set the tone for a whole generation – energy that's more even-keeled than Otis Redding, with a subtle power that will haunt you for years – thanks to Percy's sweet crackling vocals. Titles include "When A Man Loves A Woman", "Love Me Like You Mean It", "You're Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "Put A Little Lovin On Me", "Love Me All The Way", and "You Fooled Me".

✨✧ Bar-KaysDefinitive Collection (3CD set) ... CD
Robinsongs (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The only career-spanning collection we've ever seen on The Bar-Kays – and a set that does a mighty nice job of hitting all the right bases! The group first rose to fame as a funk combo on Stax in the late 60s – then shifted a bit after part of the group was killed in the same plane crash that took the life of Otis Redding – a tragedy that soon saw the group rising from the ashes, and sounding even better than before! Their sound was a huge part of the Stax Records funk sound of the early 70s – and the group took that groove over to Mercury once the decade got going – where they found a very welcome home, and the perfect environment to perfect their ultra-sharp talents. Unlike some groups who started out funky, then went smooth and commercial, The Bar-Kays never lost the qualities that made them great – and even when recording for a bigger label, with a bigger budget, they continued to turn out rock-solid rhythms laced with super-tight instrumentation – even at times when some groups were letting more machines do all the work for them. This 3CD set follows The Bar-Kays on that long musical journey, complete with a big booklet of notes that tell their full story – and the package features 46 tracks in all – including "Shine", "Up In Here", "I'll Dance", "She Talks To Me With Her Body", "Soul Finger", "Bar-Kays Boogaloo", "Sang & Dance", "Son Of Shaft", "Spellbound", "Cozy", "Freaky Behavior", "Traffic Jammer", "Nightcruising", "Animal", "Stuck By You", "Banging On The Walls", "Don't Stop Dancing To The Music", "Six O'Clock News Report", "Money Talks", "Holy Ghost", "Shake Your Rump To The Funk", "Cozy", "Whitehouseorgy", "Shut The Funk Up", and "Today Is The Day".

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
James Carr may not have cut the famous version of "These Arms Of Mine" – but he does a superb job here on the classic – really hitting the tune with his best deep soul energy, and maybe even a bit more sadness than on the Otis Redding hit! "Let's Face Facts" is fantastic, too – almost conversational in approach – that kind of hard-burning pure Memphis mode that made Carr's late 60s recordings such classics! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Super-rare soul from Junior McCants – a great singer who died at a tragically young age – which made King Records pull the single before it was ever released! "She Wrote It" is slow and sad – almost a deep soul tune, but with Junior singing in a style that's almost like east coast sweet soul! The flipside by Johnny Soul is very well-matched – the slow-burning "Fall In These Arms Of Mine" – a track with a deep soul vibe that matches the best late 60s work from James Carr and Otis Redding! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousStax 68 – A Memphis Story (5CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, 1968. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
1968 was the world of revolution around the world – and to our music-trained ears, one of the greatest revolutions occurred at the legendary Stax Records! Before that year, the label had been working with Atlantic Records – who totally screwed them, and took away all their catalog – leaving Stax to start completely from scratch, and reinvent themselves as an even more righteous company in the process! Make no mistake, Stax was already a pretty great company before – the leading light of the Memphis soul scene – but in 1968, the company went back to basics, and also embraced new waves of funk and blues, freed up to go into some very groovy territory. This 5CD set documents that amazing time – by bringing together all the singles released in 1968, both a-sides and b-sides – along with a big booklet of notes and photos that not only talk about the changes at the label, but also the city of Memphis in the tragic year of 1968 – which also saw the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. The package is overflowing with as much history as it is soul music – and features over 120 songs by artists who include Booker T & The MGs, Linda Lynell, Judy Clay, Harvey Scales, Otis Redding, The Memphis Nomads, Shirley Walton, Bar-Kays, Ollie & The Nightingales, William Bell, The Goodees, Mable John, The Epsilons, The Soul Children, Mad Lads, Charmells, Lindell Hill, Jimmy Hughes, Delaney & Bonnie, Dino & Doc, Daaron Lee, Albert King, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Derek Martin, Johnnie Taylor, and many more!

✨✧ VariousStax/Volt Revue Vol 2 – Live In Paris ... LP
Stax, 1967. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
The Memphis sound, working hard overseas – in a smoking live set that has some Stax Records stars working in Paris! There's a tightness here that arguably goes past the studio work by the singers – possibly because everyone's working in the same space, with the same backing group – and together have this intimacy that really makes the music sparkle. And sure, it's a bit rough around the edges at points, but in a good way – one that helps get past too-familiar modes in the tunes. Titles include "You Don't Know Like I Know" and "You Got Me Hummin" by Sam & Dave, "Raise Your Hand" and "But It's Alright" by Eddie Floyd", "Try A Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding, and "I Got My Mojo Working", "Let Me Be Good To You", and "Gee Whiz" by Carla Thomas. LP, Vinyl record album
