    JAMES CARR: These Arms Of Mine / Let’s Face Facts Many people’s favourite soul singer James Carr performs two classic songs that were discovered on Goldwax’s tapes some years back but appear on a single for the first time. These Arms Of Mine was an Otis classic, admired and recorded by many but matched only by Carr’s rendition. Let’s Face Facts was recorded by the Masqueraders and yet again Goldwax chose a superb and fitting song for James to perform.

  • Carr James - The Best Of (CD)

    13,00

    A 20-track CD by the man regarded by many as the greatest-ever soul singer.

    2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the release on Goldwax of James Carr’s recording of ‘The Dark End Of The Street’, a record rightly hailed as a benchmark in soul, and in southern soul in particular. James’ recording of Dan Penn and Chips Moman’s genre-defining song is one of dozens but it was the first and is by unanimous consensus the best.

    Here at Ace we wanted to do something to commemorate the anniversary. The first and most logical thought was to put out commemorative reissue of the single but we also wanted to do something for album and CD fans. Although we have extensively anthologised James’ catalogue in the past, we’ve never released a “Best Of” CD before. This mid-priced set is aimed primarily at those who know a few of James’ tracks and would like to get to know his discography better. For long-time fans the disc provides an ideal opportunity to get all of James’ Billboard R&B and pop chart hits in one place for the first time. And for fans of a more traditional medium of listening we also present a vinyl configuration with fewer tracks but still featuring all the hits and more.

    James was truly one of soul music’s finest singers, up there with Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin and Jackie Wilson in the pantheon of the greatest soul music makers. It’s a shame he didn’t make more records but those he released on Goldwax between 1965 and 1971 have few equals. If you enjoy “The Best Of James Carr” we strongly urge you to check out the rest of his Goldwax recordings, every single one of which is available on Kent.

  • Carr James - Goldwax Presents A Losing Game – Goldwax Rarities (7 single/EP)

    15,00

    More Goldwax rarities from the soul star on limited edition 7-inch vinyl.

    It’s always a pleasure to add to Kent’s small but steadily growing limited edition EP range, particularly when the disc features a hero of southern soul music. Our previous James Carr EP sold out in no time at all, and we are sure the Goldwax rarities featured on this month’s “A Losing Game” will guarantee it a similarly short catalogue life. Three of the EP’s four tracks were first issued on a long-deleted Japanese album in the mid-70s. All are much coveted by collectors, particularly Carr’s version of the deep soul standard ‘What Can I Call My Own’. ‘Pouring Water On A Drowning Man’ and ‘Love Attack’ are not alternate takes to the original Goldwax 45s but completely different recordings, cut at different sessions in different studios. Each is as potent as the single version, if not better in many ways. Best of all is ‘A Losing Game’ – a staple of northern soul and R&B clubs for decades, the take heard here has the same backing track as the released version, but Carr’s vocal is quite different. We’re also thrilled to bring you this great music in a package that features two previously unseen photos of Carr taken during a performance at a club in Montgomery, Alabama in 1966, around the time the single of ‘Love Attack’ was charting.
