* Purcell made his money through managing major US middle-of-the-road artists like Eddy Arnold and Al Hirt. His entry into the R&B field was largely unsuccessful in terms of hits but he assembled some of the cream of New York talent to create very high quality soul music.
* All of the GWP soul releases were of merit, but some of the tapes found in the vaults were exemplary. Unissued dance tracks by Lillie Fields, Larry Banks & Jaibi, Bobby Penn and the Devonnes are already big 100 Club records from advance acetate plays.
* The Hesitations' `Go Away' has had advance play on the modern soul scene from its limited appearance on a 100 Club anniversary single two years ago. Alice Clark's Northern classic `You Hit Me' was a GWP production and we feature her version of the Plus Four's `Happiest Girl In The World'.
* Benny Gordon contributes three southern soul sides, including a killer version of Maxine Brown's `All In My Mind', while Little Rose Little gives a powerhouse interpretation of the old standard `Tennessee Waltz'. If you enjoyed the "Larry Banks' Soul Family Album" this is a must.
* Volume 1 is still available on Kent: CDKEND 249.
