IRMA THOMAS has ruled as the acknowledged 'R&B Queen Of New Orleans' for many decades, although back in the late 50s/early 60s, while she was still princess-in-waiting, she had a number of rivals, notably KATIE WEBSTER, BARBARA GEORGE and BARBARA LYNN. This unique compilation is built around Irma's first eight singles, which includes her early hits 'Don't Mess With My Man', 'It's Raining' and 'Two Winters Long'. Katie Webster is represented by three tracks, which showcase her Swamp Blues roots. Barbara George famously topped the US R&B charts with her first record, 'I Know (You Don't Love Me No More)', which is included herein alongside her other R&B hits, 'You Talk About Love' and 'Send For Me'. Barbara Lynn topped the R&B charts with 'You'll Lose A Good Thing', and also registered with 'Second Fiddle Girl' and 'You're Gonna Need Me'.

One of the finest rock & roll revival bands of the 1970s, Showaddywaddy also proved to be one of the most successful and enduring. Originally styled as a British answer to American retro-masters Sha Na Na, Showaddywaddy found themselves scooped up into the glam rock basket; indeed, at a time when rival giants Mud, Wizzard, and the Rubettes were also mining the '50s for inspiration, Showaddywaddy swept ahead with barely a glance over their shoulder. The group's run of greatest hits sounds devastatingly pure, even authentic, while further evidence of their resilience can be garnered from the fact that Showaddywaddy are regularly gigging, a full 50 years after the bandmembers first heard the music which brought them such fame.

By 1968 there was a growing consensus that something had gone horribly wrong with the American dream. With urban riots, Vietnam, the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, and ever-climbing divorce rates, the American way of life was under scrutiny from all sides. The nation’s youth had loudly made their feelings clear, but now the older, pre-Beatles generations began to look at the country and wonder what the hell was happening. This album includes rare classics (the Beach Boys’ ‘4th Of July’), lost masterpieces (Roy Orbison’s seven-minute ‘Southbound Jericho Parkway’) and forgotten gems by some of the biggest names in the business (Elvis Presley’s ‘Clean Up Your Own Back Yard’).

Hold On! is the fourth album by the rocking soul man James Hunter and his stalwart sextet. Daptone's Gabriel Roth produced the excellent Minute by Minute in 2013, but this is the band's debut for the label. Hold On! was recorded live in the studio, but Roth and Hunter decided on mono to best capture the immediacy of the performances. The songwriter has recorded only original material since 2006, and these ten tracks are no exception. What separates this date from previous outings – excellent though they all were – isn't the mono production, but the diversity in songwriting, rhythmic invention, and arranging. "This Is Where We Came In" may contain a simmering organ, but doo wop-esque backing vocals from Gregory Lee, Alex Desert, and Malik Moore elevate it (and the two other cuts they appear on) beyond the early pop-soul framework that it comes adorned in. So do the cha-cha rhythms, rhumba fills, and comps from Andrew Kingslow's piano.

Old Town Records was one of dozens, if not hundreds, of small, independent record labels that sprang up in New York in the 1950s. While it had great success in New York, it had few national hits: only six Top 40 national hits in eleven years. Yet it was an interesting label, featuring soul, doo-wop and R&B music. It produced quite a number of oldies favorites including "There's a Moon Out Tonight" by The Capris and "Tonight Kathleen' by The Valentines. This list is an ongoing project; more singles will be added.
