Jerry ButlerMoon River ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. Very Good+ ... $1.99
While most folks associate the tune "Moon River" with the famous Henry Mancini soundtrack, soul fans know that Jerry Butler was actually the first one to cut a vocal record of the tune – heard here in a great package of tracks done for Vee Jay in the early 60s! The style here is as classy as the title tune – a mode that's a bit more jazz-inflected than some of Butler's other work – pushing him even more into sophisticated soul territory. The approach makes for another wonderful side of the early Butler genius – and titles include "Moon River", "Rainbow Valley", "I Found A Love", "Butterfly", "The Challenge", "No End Or Time", "Lost Without You", and "September Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Suite Beat pressing. Cover has a name in marker on front.)

Jerry ButlerPhiladelphia Sessions – Iceman Cometh, Ice On Ice, & More! ... CD
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... $22.99
Genius work from Jerry Butler – working here with the early Gamble & Huff team, years before their 70s fame with Philly International, in a smooth soul style that would soon become known as Philly Soul! By the late 60s, Jerry's work with Vee Jay was long ended – the label had come to an end through financial misdealings, but Jerry was still growing as a vocalist, ready for new styles and challenges. Hooking up with Gamble & Huff was pure genius, as the pair were brilliant young producers, working magic with smaller groups – but ready to handle a talent as large as Jerry's with ease. Butler's name and style proved to be a perfect foil for many of their new and sophisticated approaches to soul – and the union instantly yielded some super-huge hits, including "Only The Strong Survive", "Hey Western Union Man", "Never Give You Up", "Lost", and "Moody Woman". All those great tracks are on this set – which combines Butler's first two albums with the Gamble & Huff team (Iceman Cometh and Ice On Ice), and also adds in 3 bonus tracks from other albums (many of which repeated tracks from these two, and are hence not correctly reissued on their own.) The set's a brilliant batch of late 60s soul – with a total of 25 tracks that include (in addition to the numbers named above) "Brand New Me", "Beside You", "No Money Down", "Go Away, Find Yourself", "Been A Long Time", "When You're Alone", "Don't Let Love Hang You Up", and "How Can I Get In Touch With You".

El DoradosBim Bam Boom ... CD
Vee Jay, Mid 50s. Used ... $11.99
A great collection of the El Dorados' groundbreaking vocal group work for Vee Jay – one that focuses on their harder-grooving, more uptempo tracks! The group were a key force in empowering the vocal group sound with a harder edge and deeper groove – really setting the scene for 60s soul! 25 tracks in all – with titles that include "At My Front Door", "Chop Ling Soon", "Little Miss Love", "Rock N Roll's For Me", "Fallen Tear", "Oh What A Girl", "Bim Bam Boom", "Lights Are Low", and "Trouble Trouble". CD
