  • Vernons Girls - You Know What I Mean (CD)

    13,00

    Stars of Jack Good’s TV shows Oh Boy! and Boy Meets Girls, THE VERNONS GIRLS were pretty much a cottage industry of their own, with their various satellites and spinoffs.

    A sixteen-girl ensemble when Jack discovered them in 1957, by the turn of the 60s they’d slimmed down to a trio, their ex-members either pursuing solo careers or forming rival vocal duos/trios.

    Concentrating on their R&R and Pop output, this compilation traces their early careers variously as The Vernons Girls, Two Vernons Girls and spinoffs in the shape of a handful of Lynn Cornell’s early solo 45s, plus singles by The De Laine Sisters and The Breakaways.

    Includes chart and turntable hits like ’Let’s Get Together’, ’Madison Time’, ’Lover Please’, ’Never On Sunday’, ’You Know What I Mean’, ’The Locomotion’ and ’Funny All Over’.

    Surprisingly, several of these sides are unavailable elsewhere on CD, making this a must-have for the gals’ vast legions of fans.

  • Paulette Sisters - In The ’50s (CD)

    13,00

    The Paulette Sisters were among the most prolific of all the singing sisters of the 1940’s, 50’s and early 60’s, recordings dozens of singles for such major labels as Decca, Columbia and Capitol, yet this is the very first CD compilation of their work.

    They were early protégées of Connee Boswell and backed her on several sides as a quartet.

    When one of the sisters left to get married, Connee coached them on becoming a trio like the Boswells.

    This new Jasmine set focuses on their 50’s material, with orchestrations by Mitch Miller, Percy Faith, Larry Clinton, Dave Cavanaugh, and Sy Oliver, all remastered in pristine digital sound.

  • Paris Sisters - The First Ten Years (CD)

    13,00

    THE PARIS SISTERS are chiefly remembered for their winsome, million-selling ’I Love How You Love Me’, one of Phil Spector’s early freelance productions, in 1961.

    However, they were already a hugely experienced trio, having been cutting records – initially as something of an Andrews Sisters’ tribute act – since 1953, for labels like Cavalier, Decca and Imperial.

    Spector produced three further hits with the girls, ’Be My Boy’, ’He Knows I Love Him Too Much’ and ’Let Me Be The One’, while ’Yes – I Love You’ was a significant regional success.

    All are included on this compilation, which presents the very best of their recorded output between 1953-62, and also features twenty pre-Spector rarities.

    Few of their early sides have ever appeared in the digital format previously, making this a wholly unique, must-have collection.

    Another classic instalment of ’The Girl Group Sound’, this 30-track set is Jasmine’s long awaited follow up to ’Love Charms – West Coast hits and rarities from California Girls & Groups 1957-1962’ (JASCD963).

    However, this time around the tracks are from the US East Coast, taking in New York, Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago.

    Featured artists range from famous names like The Ronettes, Patty LaBelle & The Blue Belles, The Chantels, Erma Franklin and Shirley Ellis to Brill Building Soul sisters like The Shirelles, The Exciters, The Cookies and Little Eva.

    And from Cameo-Parkway thrushes The Orlons and Dee Dee Sharp to Tamla-Motown songstresses The Marvelettes, The Vells, The Supremes, Martha & The Vandellas and Mary Wells.

    While elsewhere, we have perhaps lesser-readily known names like The Carousels, Mary Ann Fisher, Ann Cole, The Corvells, Tammy Montgomery, Tawny Williams, Geraldine Hunt and The Heartbreakers.

  • Springfield Dusty - Dusty Sings Soul (CD)

    18,00

    From the very start of her solo career, it was Dusty Springfield’s intention to make records in the style of the black American artists that she admired, both professionally and personally. She recorded her version of a soul song at her first solo session and was still recording soul songs on all of her albums, singles and EPs throughout the ’60s and into the ’70s. Dusty Sings Soul is a long overdue and carefully curated collection of recordings from Dusty’s ’60s singles and albums, designed to demonstrate that she was not only the UK’s finest female singer but also it’s finest soul singer of her era and, for many, of all time. There is no shortage of Dusty compilations out there, but this is the first one to exclusively concentrate on this particular side of her far-reaching work. These are not ’covers’, in that Dusty never directly covered any record until the original had run it’s course. Dusty simply recorded songs that she loved herself, and that she hoped her fans would love. Dusty was a big fan of many of the artists whose songs she recorded and helped to raise their profile in the UK through her interpretations of their work. For soul fans who love Dusty but who only want to hear her singing soul, rather than the show tunes and/or pop ballads that she was equally at home with, this will be every bit as essential as her Dusty In Memphis album and the records she made in Philadelphia at the very end of the ’60s with Gamble & Huff. The booklet is generously illustrated and copiously annotated.

  • Smith Sammi - Looks Like Stormy Weather 1969-1975 (CD)

    20,00

    Sammi Smith sang soulful, melancholy country music. Her low, distinctively husky voice was built for sad songs, and she has been described as country music’s Dusty Springfield.

    Compiled and annotated by Bob Stanley, ”Looks Like Stormy Weather” is a collection built for winter nights. There was a compelling warmth to her voice that should have taken her out of country and into the Hot 100 – or even the UK charts – more than once, but her only real crossover moment came in 1971 when she scored the original hit version of ’Help Me Make It Through The Night’.

    DJ Ralph Emery recalled being in a motel room with Sammi one night in 1970 where she had sat and played him a whole bunch of Kris Kristofferson songs. At that point, neither the DJ nor Sammi had a clue what was around the corner for her or for her friend Kristofferson, who was then just the janitor at Columbia Records. ’Help Me Make It Through The Night’ topped Billboard’s Hot Country Singles chart for three weeks in 1971, peaked at #3 on Billboard’s Hot 100, won ”Single of the Year” and the ”Best Country Song” at the CMA awards, and a Grammy for ”Best Country Vocal Performance by a Female”. Sammi’s voice would have been new to most listeners – it’s melancholic ache and sensuous depth suited the song’s needs perfectly. Now signed to the tiny Mega label, she would record seven albums for them between 1970 and 1975, and the pick of them are the heart of this compilation.
