  • Franklin Aretha - The Complete Releases 1956-62 (2CD) (CD)

    15,00

    or several decades Aretha Franklin has enjoyed the accolade of being called “The Queen Of Soul”, a position that was cemented by her landmark 1967 pop and R&B No. 1 “Respect”. However, her career as a recording artist was a decade old by that time, having honed her style and singing gospel, jazz and blues- influenced material in her late teens. This great value 48-track collection brings together all of her recordings which were released through to 1962, by which time she had established a reputation as a distinctive, soulful and dynamic performer and had made early inroads in both the R&B and pop charts. It comprises her debut recordings as a gospel artist on the 10” LP “Songs Of Faith”, for Joe Von Battle’s JVB label, made when she was just 14 years old, and then all her singles for Columbia, most of which came from her three albums for the label “Aretha Franklin With The Ray Bryant Combo”, “The Electrifying Aretha Franklin” and “The Tender, The Moving, The Swinging Aretha Franklin”, the complete content of which is also included, along with a track from a multi-artist Christmas compilation. It’s a thorough showcase for her talent and style in the early years of her career.

  • Various - Detroit Harmonisers – Early 60s Soul Groups in the Motor City (CD)

    13,00

    This unique compilation presents a collection of vintage, highly-collectable early Motown recordings, featuring everything recorded for the company by a trio of their legendary male vocal groups, between 1959-62.

    THE CONTOURS became one of Motown’s first major groups, on the back of their million-selling, chart-topping ’Do You Love Me’, a song which would quickly evolve into a Pop, R&B and Soul standard, and its raucous follow-up, ’Shake Sherry’, both in 1962.

    THE SATINTONES famously cut ’Motor City’ in 1959, a prophetically-titled early tribute to Detroit, and ’Tomorrow And Always’, a cheeky answer disc to The Shirelles’ ’Will You Love Me Tomorrow’, in 1961.

    THE VALADIERS bubbled under the Top 100 in 1961 with the mildly controversial ’Greetings (This Is Uncle Sam)’, a song which another Motown group, The Monitors, would successfully revive in 1966, as the draft for the Vietnam War escalated.

  • Sunny And the Sunliners - Mr. Brown Eyed Soul Vol.2 (LP)

    29,90

    Sunny Ozuna is a living legend and a man worthy of praise on many levels. In the Texas and Latin Music pantheon, few have been at it longer and are more revered by their fans and peers than Sunny is. He became a star right out of high school in the late ’50s and hasn’t looked back in the seven decades since. Among countless other honors and notable achievements, Sunny was the first Latino artist to appear on Dick Clark’s ”American Bandstand” (in 1963). He penned ”Smile Now, Cry Later,” a hit for him and The Sunliners, which along with the theater masks that grace the album’s cover, became staples in the Chicano Soul and Lowrider Soul cultures.

    We have been fans of Sunny & The Sunliners’ music for a long time. We first got in touch with Sunny to try to reissue some of his records in 2013 but we didn’t sign a deal until 2015. It took a trip to San Antonio and then two years of steady phone calls before they decided ”if you have been chasing us for this long, you must be serious.” With Sunny’s blessing we started getting everything mastered, scanned, and planned. First we released 2017’s Mr Brown Eyed Soul Vol. 1 compilation that put rare 7″ sides next to some of his biggest hits and mixed in some choice album cuts for good measure. In the wake of that, we released three of Sunny’s full lengths with their original track lists and art: Smile Now, Cry Later, Little Brown Eyed Soul, and The Missing Link – all of which were Record Store Day releases that raised money for the victims of 2017’s Hurricane Harvey. For the 7″ collectors, we reissued five 45s, making some very hard to come by sides widely available again and pressing some tunes on the format for the first time. In 2020, as an homage to Sunny, we released Dear Sunny… a compilation of Big Crown artists covering Sunny & The Sunliners songs. Through all of this we were able to do what we set out to do: get Sunny’s music to a new audience of people and make it all accessible and available again to his existing fanbase. Sunny still keeps a busy schedule and loves performing as much as he did as a teenager. His music and the music that it directly influenced are seeing a resurgence in popularity in the last few years. With any luck at all, our efforts played some small part in that, and on that note, we present Mr Brown Eyed Soul Vol. 2 – another compilation curated by us, where we dig a little deeper into Sunny’s catalog and pull some lesser known gems that hold court with his hits. Hats off again to Mr Brown Eyed Soul himself, San Antonio’s own, Sunny Ozuna, we are sure you will enjoy the music.

  • Various - Masterpieces Of Modern Soul Vol. 6 (CD)

    18,00

    2022 collection. This volume in our acclaimed Masterpieces Of Modern Soul series is as strong as ever and drips with brand new, old recordings. An amazing 12 tracks are previously unheard and a further two are very different versions of already popular numbers. Some rare-soul household names have new material featured on here. Ronnie McNeir hits a wicked dance groove with ’Let’s Make A Move’ and Dee Ervin offers a superbly soulful ’You Make Me Happy’ – sure to become a modern classic. We’ve drifted into the late 70s / early 80s disco sound with numbers found on tape that were just crying out to be heard. Joe Simon cut the unknown group Cynic on ’I Want You’ at Spring early in 1982. Detroit’s Exportations very catchy ’Second Time Around’ and the equally fast, funky and fantastic ’Have A Good Time’ by Atlanta’s Maggabrain were laid down in the late 70s as was Fox Fire’s ’Don’t Play Me Cheap’. The early 80s is the likely era for Melanie Burke’s ’I Can’t Turn You Down’ – which, like the McNeir and Hodges James & Smith offerings, were Mickey Stevenson productions made in L A. We have lifted three great LP-only tracks from 1975 Fantasy albums by Janice, Betty Everett and Three Pieces: they fit so well into the compilation. Margie Joseph singing a Willie Tee song called ’Nobody’ is virtually guaranteed to be great music. It is still for sale at a reasonable price – as opposed to the arm and a leg you’ll need to offer for ’You Done Let The Daylight Catch You’ by Second Ressurection. We found a quite different vocal take for Phillip Mitchell’s ’I’ll See You In Hell First’ and a much longer version of Dave Hamilton’s ’Who’ as recorded by the unknown Jackie Dee – it was remixed from the master tape. Another Dave Hamilton song ’Must Have Had Company’ by Elayne Starr has only appeared on one of the later Dave Hamilton CDs – well worthy of a rewind for modern soul movers. The highly talented west coast producer George Semper gives us ’Doo Doop Dee Deep Doot Doo’ which owes a lot to the Sly Stone sound of the time and is similarly enthralling. Finally, we have yet another top quality, unheard 70s soul recording from Joe Hinton who had many tracks abandoned and left in the vault when Atlanta’s GRC records crashed due to the nefarious behavior of it’s owner

  • Various - Wrap It Up: Isaac Hayes & David Porter Songbook (CD)

    20,00

    Their partnership lasted barely four years and just over 50 songs – but between 1965 and 1969 Isaac Hayes and David Porter penned some of soul’s most enduring anthems of their era, many of which are still being regularly performed and recorded to this day. Ace are delighted to welcome them into our ever-popular Songwriter Series this month with ”Wrap It Up”, a fantastic collection featuring almost half of the total number of songs they wrote together in versions you would expect, and versions you wouldn’t. Hayes and Porter wrote for almost every major act on the Stax roster, but the commercial appeal of their songs gave them appeal to artists operating outside the perimeters of soul music. ZZ Top, Peter Frampton, the (Count) Bishops and Charlie Rich are just some of the fine turns you will find here essaying Hayes and Porter copyrights alongside Stax stalwarts such as Johnnie Taylor, Mable John, the Emotions, the Soul Children, Otis Redding and Carla Thomas, and, of course, Sam and Dave whose recordings of their songs were what established Hayes and Porter as a peerless songwriting force in the first place. As lovingly curated and expertly annotated as you would expect any Ace project in the Songwriter Series to be, ”Wrap It Up” is another valuable piece in the great American songwriting jigsaw, and very much a collection where the songs that were not necessarily big hits are easily on a par with those that were. It is a fitting audio tribute to two men who have between them won just about every major award going, from Grammys to election to the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
