✨✧ Ruby JohnsonIf I Ever Needed Love ... LP
Velvet Ramp/Mississippi, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soul singer Ruby Johnson never recorded a full album back in the day – and this set nicely corrects that fact, by bringing together some of her rare singles as a wonderful ten track album! Ruby's got a richness that's in the best southern soul mode of the time – a voice that would fit easily right next to the best Chess material by Etta James, but occasionally giving a slight uptown pitch in the backings – maybe a bit like Maxine Brown at moments too! Yet whatever the case, Johnson's a wonderfully expressive singer – and really knocks it out of the park on this set of heartbreaking gems – titles that include "No No No", "If I Ever Needed Love", "It's Not That Easy", "I'll Run Your Heart Away", "Let Me Apologize", "I'd Better Check Myself", "Come To Me My Darling", and "How Strong Is My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures Vol 2 – Taken From The Vaults ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $8.99 18.99
Deep soul is special soul – a certain breed of soul music that features extremely emotive vocal performances, and the kind of gut-level delivery of lyrics you'd find in the best work by legends like Otis Redding or James Carr! Yet despite the fame of those big names, the style is maybe best served up by the legion of artists who worked in the underground – some of the lesser-remembered singers who stand here alongside Redding, in a killer second batch of material all hand-picked by Dave Godin – the man who first coined the "deep soul" term back in the day! The collection seems to be even greater than the first – maybe Dave's feeling even more confident than ever – and features a stunning 25 titles that include "How Much Can A Man Take?" by Big John Hamilton, "Losin Boy" by Eddie Giles, "I'll Run Your Hurt Away" by Ruby Johnson, "Make It Me" by The Premiers, "How Was I To Know You Cared" by Doris Duke, "A Love That Never Grows Cold" by Jimmy & Louise Tig, "Let Nothing Separate Us" by Arthur Conley, "If I Could See You One More Time" by Johnny Adams, and "Hiding In the Shadows" by Eddie & Ernie.

VariousWVON Good Guys Holiday Package ... LP
WVON, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A classic around these parts! The record's more of a straight soul compilation than a record of Holiday music – but it's packaged in a Santa Claus cover, as a gift from the radio station it's named after. The Chess brothers owned WVON, a massive soul station in Chicago, and for this set, they called on a number of favors from other labels – getting tracks that include Chicago soul favorites and a few more national numbers. Titles include "For Your Precious Love" by Oscar Toney Jr, "Get On Up" by The Esquires, "Funky Broadway" by Dyke & The Blazers, "Respect" by Aretha Franklin, "Forget It" by The Sandpebbles, "Shout Bamalama" by Mickey Murray, "Open The Door To Your Heart" by Darrell Banks, "Casanova" by Ruby Andrews, "Come On Sock It to Me" by Syl Johnson, "Soul Finger" by the Bar-Kays, and "Nothing Takes the Place of You" by Toussaint McCall. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original gatefold pressing, with booklet! Cover has a split top seam, light surface wear, and aging.)

✨✧ Willie MabonI'm The Fixer – The Best Of The USA Sessions ... CD
USA/Fuel 2000, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really great work from singer Willie Mabon – best known as a Chicago bluesman from the 50s, but an artist who's in even more soulful territory on these sublime sides from the 60s! Willie's got a quality here that really links together Chicago's blues and soul traditions – in a vibe that prefaces later work by singers like Tyrone Davis or Syl Johnson, but shares their similar sense of deep roots and modern swing. Mabon's a hell of a charismatic force on all these cuts – a singer really ripe for rediscovery, especially on this overlooked stretch of his career. The work was all done for the excellent USA label, and shares the genre-stepping quality of much of that imprint's best music – and titles include "Some More", "Something For Nothing", "Got To Have Some", "Just Got Some", "I'm The Fixer", "Too Hot To Handle", "Somebody Gotta Pay", and "Ruby's Monkey".

✨✧ VariousWrap It Up – The Isaac Hayes & David Porter Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's a young Isaac Hayes on the cover, sitting at the piano next to David Porter – his key songwriting partner at Stax Records in the 60s – at a time before both artists had gone onto their own solo recordings for the label! The Hayes/Porter team gave Stax some of their best songs during the second half of the 60s – often numbers that have a hip, hard-grooving style that really pushed the boundaries of Memphis soul – and as you'll hear here, the duo's work was not just recorded for their main label, but also handled by a wealth of other artists too – mostly soul singers of the late 60s, but also featured here on a few later tracks as well. Those later cuts are ever bit as soulful as the 60s material that makes up most of the collection – and the package also features some unissued numbers too –served up here in a list of 24 titles that include "Can't Trust Your Neighbor" by Freddie King, "60 Minutes Of Your Love" by Homer Banks, "I'll Understand" by Edwin Starr & Blinky, "Left Over Love" by Ruby Johnson, "Hold On I'm Coming" by The Righteous Brothers, "You Got Me Hummin" by The Hassles, "I'm Dedicating My Life" by Danny White, "Love Is After Me" by Charlie Rich, "Your Good Thing" by Mable John, "You Don't Know Like I Know" by Keith Powell & Billie Davis, "Wrap It Up" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Baby" by Rachel Sweet, "As Long As I've Got You" by The Emotions, "I Take What I Want" by The Bishops, "The Sweeter He Is (parts 1 & 2)" by Soul Children, and an unreleased alternate of "Toe Hold" by Johnnie Taylor.
