Ben E King & The Drifters – I Who Have Nothing

The Drifters are a long-lived American soul / doo wop/R&B vocal group whose popularity peaked in the period 1953 to 1962, though several splinter Drifters continue to perform today.

The tale of The Drifters is a somewhat torturous convoluted one indeed!

The name “The Drifters” has been brought back from the dead more times than Lazarus, and there have been countless, often concurrent, incarnations of various “Drifters”!

They were originally formed by ace vocalist Clyde McPhatter (of Billy Ward & the Dominoes fame) in 1953.

The group attained a reasonable level of success but all changed in May 1954 when McPhatter received his draft letter.

Having joined up, and while initially stationed in Buffalo, New York, McPhatter was able to continue for a time, with “What’cha Gonna Do” being Clyde’s last recording, with the group.

Later, Clyde would pursue a very successful solo career charting 16 R&B and 21 Pop records.

Rolling Stone magazine states that The Drifters were one of the least stable of the vocal groups due to being low-paid hired musicians of The Drifters’ management.

While part of the group, McPhatter had demanded a large share of the group’s profits, which he had been denied in the Dominoes, but, upon his departure, did not ensure that this would continue for his successor.

He sold his share of the group to George Treadwell, manager, former jazz trumpeter, and husband of singer Sarah Vaughan. As a result, the Drifters cycled through many members, none of whom made much money. McPhatter later expressed regret at this action, recognizing that it doomed his fellow musicians to unprofitability.

Treadwell owned the rights to the name “Drifters”, and still had a year’s worth of bookings for the Apollo when he fired the group in May 1958.

In the summer of 1958, he approached Lover Patterson, the manager of The Five Crowns featuring lead singer Ben E. Nelson, better known by his later stage name of Ben E. King. The new line-up consisted of King (lead tenor), Charlie Thomas (tenor), Doc Green (baritone), and Elsbeary Hobbs (bass). J

The group went out on the road to tour for almost a year. Since this new group had no connection to the prior Drifters, they often played to hostile audiences.

This new lineup, widely considered the “true” golden age of the group, released several singles with King on lead that became chart hits;

  • “There Goes My Baby” was the first commercial rock-and-roll recording to include a string orchestra, a Top 10 hit, and number 193 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
  • “Dance With Me” followed.
  • Later came “This Magic Moment” (number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1960).
  • “Save the Last Dance for Me” reached # 1 on the U.S. pop charts and #2 in the UK.
  • This was followed by “I Count The Tears.”

This version of The Drifters was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2000 as Ben E. King and the Drifters.

The writeup indicates an award primarily as a tribute to Ben E. King with a nod to his time in The Drifters, with only one of five paragraphs exclusively devoted to The Drifters, though Charlie Thomas was also cited by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame’s induction of the original Drifters, which technically was only through 1958).

The Treadwell Drifters website states that there have been 60 vocalists in the history of the Treadwell Drifters line!

Several splinter groups by former Drifters members add to the count. Nevertheless, there are two main iterations of The Drifters which are of chief note;

  • The first classic Drifters formed by Clyde McPhatter was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame as The Drifters or The Original Drifters.
  • The second Drifters formed by Treadwell featuring Ben E. King was separately inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame as Ben E. King and The Drifters.

The Vocal Group Hall of Fame has inducted both ‘The Original Drifters’ (1998) and ‘Ben E. King and The Drifters'(2000).

In 1988, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted The Drifters. In their induction, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rather eclectically selected four members from the classic Drifters, two from the second Drifters, and one from the post-King Treadwell Drifters!! They named members Clyde McPhatter, Bill Pinkney, Gerhardt Thrasher, Johnny Moore, Ben E. King, Charlie Thomas, and Rudy Lewis. Charlie Thomas and Bill Pinkney accepted the award at the induction ceremony.

According to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, “Through turmoil and changes the (original) Drifters managed to set musical trends and give the public 13 chart hits, most of which are legendary recordings today”

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked The Drifters #81 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.




I, I who have nothing,
I, I who have no one,
Adore you and want you so.
I’m just a no one with nothing to give you but, oh…
I love you.

He, he buys you diamonds,
Bright, sparkling diamonds.
But, believe me, dear, when I say,
That he can give you the world
but he’ll never love the way…
I love you.

He can take you any place he wants,
Fancy clubs and restaurants.
But I can only watch you with,
My nose pressed up against the window pane.

I, I who have nothing,
I, I who have no one,
Must watch you go dancing by,
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else
when, darling, it’s I…
Who love you.

– Jerry Lieber & Mike Stoller

The Supremes – I hear a symphony

A classic Holland/Dozier/Holland piece of Motown songwriting beautifully belted out by Diana Ross with Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard – aka The Supremes!

A tender rhapsody of love indeed!

They sure don’t make em like this anymore!

You’ve given me a true love
And every day I thank you love
For a feeling that’s so new
So inviting, so exciting

Whenever you’re near
I hear a symphony
A tender melody
Pulling me closer
Closer to your arms

Then suddenly, I hear a symphony
Ooh, your lips are touching mine
A feeling so divine
till I leave the past behind
Im lost in a world
Made for you and me

Whenever you’re near
I hear a symphony
Play sweet and tenderly
Every time your lips meet mine now baby

Baby, baby
You bring much joy within
Dont let this feeling end
Let it go on and on and on
Now baby, baby
Those tears that seem my eyes
I cry not for myself
But for those who never felt the joy we felt

Whenever you’re near
I hear a symphony
Each time you speak to me
I hear a tender rhapsody of love now

Baby, baby
As you stand holding me
Whispering how much you care
A thousand violins fill the air

Now baby, baby
Don’t let this moment end
Keep standing close to me
Ooh, so close to me, baby, baby
Baby, baby
I hear a symphony
A tender melody



-Brian Holland/Lamont Dozier/Edward Holland, jr.

Otis Redding – Pain In My Heart (1964/1991 )

Otis Redding – Pain In My Heart
Atlantic & Atco Remasters | 1964/1991 | R&B, Soul | 31:43 | Flac – EAC, Cue, Log | MP3 – CBR 320 kbps | 136 MB & 70 MB

Producer: Jim Stewart.
Reissue producer: Yves Beauvais.
Personnel: Otis Redding (vocals); Johnny Jenkins (guitar); Charles “Packy” Axton (tenor saxophone); Floyd Newman (baritone saxophone); Wayne Jackson (trumpet).
Booker T. & The MG’s: Booker T. Jones (piano, organ); Steve Cropper (guitar, piano); Donald “Duck” Dunn, Lewis Steinberg (bass); Al Jackson Jr (drums).

Recorded between 1962 and January 1964. Originally released on Atco (33-161).

Digitally remastered by Bill Inglot and Dan Hersch (DigiPrep).

After Otis Redding made his mark on the Top 100 pop charts with his Fall 1963 single “Pain In My Heart,” he released a debut album of the same name the following year that showed this Georgia soul singer to be no flash in the pan.

The bulk of PAIN is covers that either pay homage to influences like Sam Cooke (“You Send Me”) and Little Richard (“Lucille”) or ride on the coattails of recent hits by Don Gardner and Dee Dee Ford (“I Need Your Lovin’) and the Kingsmen (“Louie Louie”).

Although Redding’s interpretive skills were impressive, his early, self-penned material such as “These Arms Of Mine” and “That What My Heart Needs” were an even greater representation of his burgeoning talent. Apparently fans of soul agreed–both songs made the Top 30 on the R&B charts.

This album works on so many different levels, that it’s essential listening for at least three categories of buyer — fans of Otis Redding and Stax Records (natch), and more general soul listeners, and also anyone serious about their devotion to the work of the Rolling Stones and any other British invasion bands that covered American soul.

Pain In My Heart was practically a road map to Mick Jagger and any number of other would-be white soul shouters in the UK, not just on the title track but also numbers like the hard rocking “Hey Hey Baby”. For someone only 22 years old at the time of these sessions, and just two years past his first 45 rpm record, Redding exudes astonishing power, energy and boldness, though it’s all packaged with greater restraint than his subsequent records did.

This was the only LP that Redding recorded during the lifetime of his idol, Sam Cooke, and his version of “You Send Me” is the least stylized of any of his renditions of Cooke’s songs — later on, after Cooke’s death, he would throw more of himself into it. The very fact that he was covering Cooke’s soul classic shows an essential difference between Redding’s and Cooke’s early LPs; as Redding was on a soul label, no one tried to make him into a pop singer as that’d done at RCA with Cooke — thus, he was running on all cylinders right out of the starting gate, though he wouldn’t get really interesting or show his full depth until two albums later.

But even covering Rufus Thomas’s “The Dog”, Richard Berry’s “Louie Louie”, Little Richard’s “Lucille”, or Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me”, he’s already doing 70% of what we came to expect from Otis Redding in the years ahead — his writing, apart from “Security”, “These Arms Of Mine” and “That’s What My Heart Needs”, was still somewhat less than memorable, but this is still a first-rate debut and a must-own CD.

Tracks

01. Pain In My Heart 02:24

Otis Redding – Tell The Truth

Otis Redding – Tell The Truth
Atco, Rhino, WEA | 1970 | R&B | MP3 | CBR 320 kbps | 31:24 | 76 MB

Tell the Truth is a posthumously released Otis Redding album compiled from songs recorded in 1967.

When a major artist dies, labels can usually be counted on to release anything and everything the artist had in the can, regardless of quality. In the case of Otis Redding, most of the posthumous releases were of a very high quality. One example is Tell the Truth, which was recorded the year he died, 1967, and remained unreleased until 1970. Though it falls short of essential, Truth has a lot to excite the soul icon’s more devoted followers. Tracks like “I Got the Will,” “Snatch a Little Piece,” and “Demonstration” are pure Redding — frenzied, passionate, relentlessly gritty Memphis soul that makes no concessions to pop tastes or Northern soul. “Out of Sight” speaks volumes about him — while others would have been afraid to cover a song written and defined by James Brown, Redding confidently tackles the song with splendid results. Redding’s last major hit, “Dock of the Bay,” indicated that had he lived, he would have explored softer, Northern R&B sounds. But on this album (reissued on CD in the early ’90s), it was Memphis all the way. ~ AllMusic


This is not the posthumous masterpiece that Love Man was, that great album that was in the can when Otis died nearly three years ago. This is where the anthologists start reaching back into the vaults for the not-so-brilliant material that was left off earlier albums and songs that were beginning to get there for future albums.

That’s just by way of saying that if you have never heard an Otis Redding album before, this is not the first one to buy. But it’s unthinkable that you haven’t heard Otis before, and if you really heard Otis, you would have all the other albums anyway. And if you got all the other albums, then you are in luck, ’cause….

Here’s another. Otis was so good, so great a singer, a composer and an arranger, that everything he touched after he established his own identity (leaving the Little Richard thing early on) is suffused with his innate dynamism, warmth and love.

The MGs were at their best when fronted by Otis Redding. This record is more of that: the Stax-Volt sound like you haven’t been hearing it recently. Listening to this combination in new songs brings home again how good they are: they move like a Super-8 Creedence Clearwater on something like “Wholesale Love.” The arrangements on this record are characterized by the contrasts and blends of the Memphis rhythm section with some unusually pop/commercial horn lines, not usually associated with straight RB. Otis was always reaching out.

Otis does versions of big hits by the other two Macon natives, James Brown and Little Richard; “Out of Sight” and “Slippin’ and Slidin’.” Although I think Otis was the best singer out of that Georgia burg, these versions aren’t the proof.

The best stuff is Otis’ own: “I Got The Will” is a beauty. None among the rest are fully realized, but all of them are demonstrations of how great Otis really was.

Jackie Wilson – Do Your Thing -1968 @320

[do+your+thing.JPG]
Jackie Wilson – Do Your Thing
Brunswick Records, 1968
Mp3 @ 320

A somewhat rare recording from one of the kings of real soul music, the great Jackie Wilson!

Jackie’s career had faltered just a bit in the 1960’s; His voice and performance style were still amazing, but he’d had some trouble weathering changing trends in pop music.

This 1968 LP came the year following a resurgence with his great hit single ‘Higher and Higher‘, which was essentially his last career highpoint.

With a great sound crafted by influential producer Carl Davis and Eugene Record (of The Chi-Lites), this is a good album overall, though perhaps a tad ‘schizophonic’ with respect to song choices – mixing semi-current Rock/pop hits (Eleanor Rigby, Light my Fire, etc) with splashy ‘big room’ showpieces.

Sam Cooke – The Man Who Invented Soul [BOX SET] (2000) – New links

Sam Cooke – The Man Who Invented Soul [BOX SET] (2000)
mP3 @ various kbps/ flac

What a great box set this is! So great we’re posting it again! …. this time with new links, thanks to Fratan!

From the King of Soul himself, Mr Cooke!

Some true classics collected here.

A whopping 96 tracks in all! Yes, ninety fucking six!!

Let’s all Cha Cha Cha !

Great to hear that Bill Clinton song again …. I Ain’t Gonna Cheat On You No More !

Sam Cooke had a voice like clover honey, and he was as ingenious a businessman as he was an artist–carefully treading the line between smooth pop and deep R&B to bring both audiences to him, as well as together. Disc 1 of this set compiles his 1957-1959 recordings for the Keen label, which had tamed the former gospel tiger into a sweet, wry songwriter with a taste for crooning standards and a signature yodel that marked every song as his property.

The second and third discs do the same for his RCA career’s singles and album tracks, which, for all their orchestrated slickness, left an indelible mark on soul and even rock (compare “That’s It, I Quit, I’m Movin’ On” to Elvis Costello’s “Blame It On Cain”!).

Lastly, there’s a disc with two complete albums from Cooke’s stylistic poles: Night Beat (after-hours cool soul) and Live at the Harlem Square Club (Cooke as hard-hollering crowd mover).

As a survey of the middle period of Cooke’s career, this set is totally solid; be advised, though, that it skips over both his early years shouting gospel with the Soul Stirrers and the classic recordings from the last year or so of his life–which include hits such as “Shake” and “A Change Is Gonna Come” that are still, flabbergastingly, out of print.

Halcion Daze: Music To Soothe The ’60s Housewife


Halcion Daze: Music To Soothe The ’60s Housewife
Various Artists
Mp3 / Mediafire

A wonderful collection compiled by the excellent plagueofangels who writes about it thusly;

Just to review… This all started, innocently enough, with:

“… a DORIS DAY song should always be followed by a DEAN MARTIN song which should always be followed by a ROSEMARY CLOONEY song. LOUIS PRIMA… PATTI PAGE… BOBBY DARIN… CONNIE FRANCIS… NAT KING COLE… DINAH WASHINGTON… and so on….”

And this is where it ends. I managed to get just about everybody in (sorry, Louis Prima; “Jump, Jive an’ Wail” just missed the cut), though not necessarily in the originally intended order. This took more hours than I care to count to compile. I hope you’ll find it a worthwhile diversion from our usual fare ….

Mary Wells – Sings My Guy (1964)



Mary Wells – Sings My Guy (1964)


I’m stickin’ to my guy
Like a stamp to a letter
Like the birds of a feather
We stick together

A seminal album this, sung by the great Mary Welles, created by the great Smokey Robinson.

On this album, Robinson demonstrated his ability to craft and hone great material for female acts, something he would later repeat with The Marvelettes.

Besides the title track, there are so many other sublime songs, such as “He’s the One I Love” and “At Last,” that weren’t hits but certainly should have been.

Of course, the marvellous Mary Wells makes these great songs sound even better!

We’ve already posted about the great title track HERE!


I believe this album was released in the UK under the handle “My Baby Just Cares For Me” in 1965. I guess Brits, back then, didn’t know what the word “guy” meant!

Tracklisting

01 He’s The One I Love
02 Whisper You Love Me Boy
03 My Guy
04 Does He Love Me
05 How (When My Heart Belongs To You)
06 He Holds His Own
07 My Baby Just Cares For Me
08 I Only Have Eyes For You
09 You Do Something To Me
10 It Had To Be You
11 If You Love Me Really Love Me
12 At Last

I’m stickin’ to my guy
Like a stamp to a letter
Like the birds of a feather
We stick together

The original and wonderful Wells recording of this Smokey Robinson classic, one of the most famous Motown hits of the 60s.

Released April 4th, 1964, this song reached Number One on Billboard Pop and Cashbox R&B Charts and Number 5 in the UK.

This track appears on the wonderful Motown album Mary Wells Sings My Guy (1964) which we’ve posted HERE!

Credits:

  • Lead vocals by Mary Wells
  • Background vocals by The Andantes: Jackie Hicks, Marlene Barrow, and Louvain Demps
  • Written and produced by William “Smokey” Robinson
  • Instrumentation by The Funk Brothers: Earl Van Dyke: organ / Johnny Griffith: piano / Eddie Willis: guitar / Robert White: guitar / James Jamerson: bass guitar / Benny Benjamin: drums / Dave Hamilton: vibes / Herbert Williams: trumpet / Russ Conway: trumpet / Paul Riser: trombone / George Bohannon: trombone


Nothing you could say
Can tear me away from my guy
Nothing you could do
‘Cause I’m stuck like glue to my guy

I’m stickin’ to my guy
Like a stamp to a letter
Like the birds of a feather
We stick together
I’m tellin’ you from the start
I can’t be torn apart from my guy

Nothing you can do
Could make me untrue to my guy
Nothing you could buy
Could make me tell a lie to my guy

I gave my guy my word of honor
To be faithful and I’m gonna
You best be believing
I won’t be deceiving my guy

As a matter of opinion I think he’s tops
My opinion is he’s the cream of the crop
As a matter of taste to be exact
He’s my ideal as a matter of fact

No muscle bound man
Could take my hand from my guy
No handsome face
Could ever take the place of my guy
He may not be a movie star
But when it comes to being happy we are
There’s not a man today
Who could take me away from my guy

No muscle bound man
Could take my hand from my guy
No handsome face
Could ever take the place of my guy
He may not be a movie star
But when it comes to being happy we are
There’s not a man today
Who could take me away from my guy

There’s not a man today
Who could take me away from my guy
(Tell me more)
There’s not a man today
Who could take me away from my guy

Mary Wells – The One Who Really Loves you 1962

https://i1.wp.com/www.girl-groups.com/marywells.jpg

Great track by Motown songstress Wells as posted by pauleyh

This is the debut single by the one and only Mary Wells, The First Lady (at the time) for Motown.


This great track was written by Mr. Smokey Robinson!

Mary Esther Wells (May 13, 1943 – July 26, 1992) was an American soul, R&B, and pop singer.

Most famous for her 1964 hit “My Guy”, she was the first, female signature voice of Motown and its first star.

The Velvelettes – Needle In A Haystack

https://i2.wp.com/farm1.static.flickr.com/198/490427541_b2c4ae327e.jpg

Great vid of the magnificent Motown gal group The Velvelettes, as posted by IanLevine

Ian says …

At the time of posting this video up here on YouTube, I have 238 videos already on here. I predict that out of all of them, this is the one that’s going to get the most hits, and I’ve been saving it till now. Basically, for everyone who ever loved Motown, this one just has it ALL. The right group, the right song, the right dresses, and the right performance. This song literally SCREAMS Motown, and justifies everything I ever tried to achieve with Motorcity Records. It all began for me while growing up. At fourteen years old, I discovered the joy of listening to The Velvelettes “Needle In A Haystack”, not once, not twice, but probably twenty times a day.

I knew every word, every nuance, of Cal Gill’s amazingly plaintive vocal. The more obscure Motown groups fascinated me far more than the obvious ones. Which is why, when I started Motorcity, I sought out The Velvelettes and re-recorded my beloved favourite, this amazing classic, “Needle In A Haystack”. And these Velvelettes were all four original girls. Not a substitution in sight. I continued to record them over the next few years, releasing their first ever album, something which, at the time, they had never achieved at Motown.

There was also another wonderful song that I co-wrote with Ivy Jo Hunter, the legendary Motown songwriter, called “It Keeps Reminding Me (Of Happy memories)”, a song which summed up everything I tried to achieve with my Motorcity Reunion Project. When this video was filmed, on a hot August night in 1990, all four original members, Cal, Bertha, Norma, and Millie, were all on top form.

When I recorded them on this classic in 1987, I tried to change it and make it more high energy, but lost the magic of the original groove, so I quickly remixed it and tried to capture that magic that made the original so special. I think this performance is also special, and I’m proud to be able to give Motown fans all over the world such an exceptional video to enjoy.

Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint – The River in Reverse (2006)

Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint – The River in Reverse (2006)

Some inspired music has arrived in the wake of Hurricane Katrina (mainly on New Orleans-themed benefit albums), but nothing as audaciously ambitious as this cross-generational collaboration between Crescent City mainstay Allen Toussaint and former British upstart turned adventurously eclectic veteran Elvis Costello.

As a songwriter, producer, and arranger, Toussaint has been responsible for hits from artists ranging from Irma Thomas, Ernie K-Doe, and Lee Dorsey to the Pointer Sisters and Labelle. Costello, long a huge fan of Toussaint’s music, sings relatively familiar fare such as “On Your Way Down” and “Freedom for the Stallion” from Toussaint’s extensive songbook along with obscurities mainly recorded by Dorsey.

Toussaint supplies his distinctive piano and horn arrangements–as well as lead vocals on “Who’s Gonna Help Brother Get Further?”–with Costello’s Imposters serving as the rhythm section.

Yet the real revelation comes from the new material, including the title track (a searing Costello composition in the Toussaint soul-spiritual mode) and five new Costello/Toussaint compositions that spotlight Toussaint’s signature sound without diminishing Costello’s creative contributions. What could have been a curiosity is instead a hallmark in the catalog of each artist.

-Don McLeese

The River in Reverse is Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint’s spirited and deeply soulful new album, including seven songs from Toussaint’s remarkable catalog; five newly written by the two; and one new song, the title track, written by Costello. Sessions for the album took place over a whirlwind two weeks late last year in Hollywood, CA and at Piety Street Studios in Toussaint’s hometown of New Orleans. Produced by Joe Henry, the album masterfully combines Costello’s band the Imposters with Toussaint’s horn section (Amadee Castenell, Joe Smith, Sam Williams, and Brian Cayolle) and guitarist (Anthony Brown).
Toussaint led the ensemble from the piano, with Imposters keyboard player Steve Nieve switching to Hammond B3. The majority of the tracks were cut with the entire group in the room and Costello singing live, occasionally adding his guitar to the mix. Costello selected songs from deep within the Toussaint catalogue such as “Nearer To You,” “Freedom for the Stallion,” and “Tears, Tears and More Tears.” Toussaint kicks off the lead vocal on his composition, “Who’s Gonna Help Brother Get Further?” and trades vocal lines with Costello and bassist Davey Faragher on several other tracks.

All of the horn arrangements are marked with Toussaint’s distinctive style and, commented Costello, “add a second voice” to the title track, the one song that Costello wrote alone. Just before the recording began, the duo holed up in New York to write together throughout October, a quick-moving process that resulted in four songs on the album of various combinations of words and music.

The songwriting collaboration began with Costello writing lyrics for Toussaint’s beautiful minor key variation of Professor Longhair’s “Tipitina.” The resulting piece is now entitled “Ascension Day.” Other new titles include “The Sharpest Thorn,” “Broken Promise Land,” and “International Echo.”

Toussaint previously produced a 1983 Costello cover of Yoko Ono’s “Walking on Thin Ice” with the Attractions and the T.K.O. Horns, and also contributed piano to the New Orleans-recorded “Deep Dark Truthful Mirror” from Costello’s 1989 album Spike.

Immediately following Hurricane Katrina, Toussaint relocated to New York City, where the two renewed their musical friendship at several benefit concerts and club gigs during a seven-day period from the 17th of September, leading to discussions of this new album. The powerful song “The River in Reverse” was written by Costello on September 24th, 2005, and performed by him for the first time at that night’s “Parting the Waters” benefit event organized by the The New Yorker magazine.

The Miracles (known from 1965 to 1972 as Smokey Robinson & the Miracles) is an American rhythm and blues group from Detroit, Michigan, notable as the first successful group act for Berry Gordy’s Motown Records. The Miracles went on to become one of Motown’s signature acts of the 1960s, during which time their original lead singer and founding member Smokey Robinson became one of the most successful songwriters and record producers of all time.

During their nineteen year run on the American music charts, The Miracles charted over fifty hits and recorded in the genres of doo wop, soul, disco, and R&B. Twenty-six Miracles songs reached the Top Ten of the Billboard R&B singles chart, including four R&B number ones. Sixteen of the Miracles’ songs charted within the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, with seven songs charting within the Top Ten and two – 1970’s “The Tears of a Clown” and 1975’s “Love Machine” (Part 1) – reaching number-one.

Sam Cooke – The Man Who Invented Soul [BOX SET] (2000)

Sam Cooke – The Man Who Invented Soul [BOX SET] (2000)
mP3 @ various kbps/ flac

What a great box set this is!

From the King of Soul himself!

Some true classics collected here.

A whopping 96 tracks in all! Yes, ninety fucking six!!

Let’s all Cha Cha Cha !

Great to hear that Bill Clinton song again …. I Ain’t Gonna Cheat On You No More !

Sam Cooke had a voice like clover honey, and he was as ingenious a businessman as he was an artist–carefully treading the line between smooth pop and deep R&B to bring both audiences to him, as well as together. Disc 1 of this set compiles his 1957-1959 recordings for the Keen label, which had tamed the former gospel tiger into a sweet, wry songwriter with a taste for crooning standards and a signature yodel that marked every song as his property.

The second and third discs do the same for his RCA career’s singles and album tracks, which, for all their orchestrated slickness, left an indelible mark on soul and even rock (compare “That’s It, I Quit, I’m Movin’ On” to Elvis Costello’s “Blame It On Cain”!).

Lastly, there’s a disc with two complete albums from Cooke’s stylistic poles: Night Beat (after-hours cool soul) and Live at the Harlem Square Club (Cooke as hard-hollering crowd mover).

As a survey of the middle period of Cooke’s career, this set is totally solid; be advised, though, that it skips over both his early years shouting gospel with the Soul Stirrers and the classic recordings from the last year or so of his life–which include hits such as “Shake” and “A Change Is Gonna Come” that are still, flabbergastingly, out of print.

Al Green – Call Me (1973) [2004]


Al Green – Call Me (1973) [2004]
mp3 / ?kbps / 76.58 MB

A great work from one from the greatest souls brothers!

You can call him Al!

Call Me is the masterpiece from America’s last great soul singer, a vulnerable, sensual, spiritual, and sexy album. Sent soaring by the bluesy accents of the Memphis Horns and held to Earth by the rock-solid, wide-open groove of drummer Al Jackson, the subject here is nothing less than Green’s soul, a battle expressed beautifully in his otherworldly voice–crying and praying on the title track, despairing on his cover of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”, both bitter and resigned on his version of “Funny How Time Slips Away”–a voice as true as anything short of heaven. And on the closing “Jesus Is Waiting”, we even get to hear that.

Continuing on a successful roll that found his previous two albums go gold, Al Green released CALL ME in 1973. It’s another soul classic founded on the winning tandem of Green and producer Willie Mitchell. Wielding his voice like a precision instrument, Green truly amazes, whether it’s harmonising with his fluttering falsetto on “Have You Been Making Out O.K”. or casually crooning along on a carpet of horns, billowing organ and a gentle string section on the title track.

Always one to acknowledge his influences, Green covers two country classics, Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and Willie Nelson’s “Funny How Time Slips Away”, with slow, steady beats that allow him to brand each with his unique sense of phrasing. And religion’s powerful pull (it would draw him away from the secular world by the end of the decade) manifests itself on “Jesus Is Waiting”, a self-penned testimonial that turns the studio into a church led by Al Green plucking on an acoustic guitar alongside his musical flock.
