The Definitive Ruby Andrews Collection...Must Have Chicago Soul Classic. 30 Jun 2006
By Spree Playa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most people are sleep on who Ruby Andrews is. For those that don't know, or think they know (because they only heard Cassanova) wake up! This woman is the essence of what Chicago soul singers are really about! Most folk only associate two female singers from Chicago (the late Minnie Riperton and Mavis Staples) and disregard the rest. Ruby Andrews has all the funk Mavis Staples only achieved on one album (the Curtis Mayfield produced A Piece of the Action Soundtrack, which FYI was excellent), and the seriousness of Minnie Riperton classic Come Into My Garden in this collection all in one. For those just finding out about this gem, I would recommend finding a vinyl copy of the 1972 recording of Black Ruby since it hasnt been re-released on CD. However, if you can't, before you play the whole CD in sequential order, listen to the following FIRST:

1. (I Wanna Be) Whatever It Takes To Please You

2. You Ole Boo Boo You

3. My Love Is Comin Down

4. Uh Uh Boy That's A No No

5. Casanova (the first version)

6. You Got To Do The Same Thing

7. The Love I Need

8. You Made A Believer Out Of Me

There are songs on here for everyone. Some are dated, but the funkier cuts are in the aforementioned. Ruby's talent, as well as innovation come out very nicely in this collection; the style of guitar, bass and strings used in some of the songs is very reminiscent of later 70s works of Curtis Mayfield with female singers (mostly Aretha Franklin (Sparkle Soundtrack), Mavis Staples (Piece of the Action Soundtrack), and Gladys Knight (Claudine Soundtrack)) but note: Ruby Andrews did it first!!!

If I had one baby gripe about this compilation, it would be not including Overdose Of Love, which is such a sexy, seductive song IMO that has mystique in it that captures you from the first note to the end. But all in all, you won't be dissapointed.

60's & 70's SOUL, FUNK & DEEP SOUL ALL WRAPPED UP IN ONE NICE NEAT LITTLE PACKAGE...WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE? 5 Feb 2008
By Mr. Nightshift - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you don't know who Ruby Andrews is NOW is a good time to find out!!! This was once available as an expensive Japanese Import (Around $50.00), but thanks to the good folks at Grapevine you'll pay around $20.00! Includes ALL of her Billboard Charted Hits: "Casanova" (#9) Note: This is the 'Original' Version, "The Love I Need" (#48), "You Made A Believer" (#18), "Everybody Saw You" (#34) Note: The Edited Single Version, Why?, "Can You Get Away" (#41), and You Ole Boo Boo You", Plus several album favorites & Rare Singles ALL from the Zodiac label. Due to the fact the small indie label Zodiac wasn't as big as Vee-Jay and Chess labels, they were confined to just making a little noise in various markets throughout the South. Understand this...It had NOTHING to do with quality of the good music to be found here. Several were even recorded/produced in Detroit!, so you get the best of 2 (Two) world's...Chicago & Detroit!!! Of the Rare Cuts: "Let's Get A Groove Going On", "Come To Me", and "Just Loving You" ALL stand in high ranks in the Collector's Circle (As well as U.K. Favorites). Do yourself a favor and shell out a few bucks...Sit back relax and enjoy 28 (Twenty-Eight) Tracks from this long overlooked artist. Who knows maybe there might be enough remaining tracks (As well as some Unrealeased Tracks) to prompt Grapevine to put out a Volume 2 of Ruby Andrews the Zodiac years.

All The Hits And Their B-sides For This Northern Soul Diva 1 Nov 2011
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Vivid Sound release is, from a sound perspective, just fine, especially considering the original recording studios used by shoestring operations such as Zodiac Records were hardly top-of-the-line. You also get both sides of all seven hits registered by Ruby Andrews for that Chicago-based label from 1967 to 1971, along with informative liner notes written by Robert Pruter, music historian and noted author of several great books, including Chicago Soul.

Born Ruby Stackhouse in Hollandale, Mississippi on March 12, 1947, she began her recording career as a soul singer at age 18 for the tiny Kellmac Records label when she accompanied The Vondells (Lowell Simon, Jessie Dean, Glen Murdock, William McCoy, and James Neely) on Please Tell Me Why/Waiting (Kellmac 1001) late in 1965. Shortly after that fizzled she sang in the background on Michael The Lover by The C.O.D.'s (Larry Brownlee, Robert Lewis and Carl Washington) and this time was an uncredited part of a # 5 R&B smash on Kellmac 1003, which just missed the Pop Hot 100 Top 40 at # 41 in January 1966.

By the time she hooked up with Zodiac Records her billing name had been changed to Ruby Andrews and, in 1967, had her first single released - Let's Get A Groove Going On (Part 1)/(Part 2) on Zodiac 1001. That's here, but neither side of her second release that year - Johnny's Gone Away/I Just Can't Get Enough (Zodiac 1002) - is included. Then, in late summer, Casanova (Your Playing Days Are Over) began its climb to # 9 R&B and # 51 Hot 100 on Zodiac 1004 b/w I Just Don't Believe It.

In February 1968, Hey Boy (Take A Chance On Love) could only manage a weak # 92 Hot 100 and was shut out on the R&B charts on Zodiac 1006 b/w Come To Me, a clear indication of the difficulties being experienced by Zodiac in publicizing their releases on a national basis, because this great little tune deserved better. Much the same could be said for her next three releases, none of which charted: You Can Run (But You Can't Hide)/Wonderful Night (Zodiac 1007); The Love I Need/Just Loving You (Zodiac 1010); and I Guess That Don't Make Me A Loser/I Let Him Take Me (In His Arms Zodiac 1012) - all in 1968 and all here.

In the summer of 1969 she returned to the charts with You Made A Believer (Out Of Me) which reached a modest # 18 R&B and a weak # 96 Hot 100 on Zodiac 1015 b/w Where Have You Gone? Early in 1970, Help Yourself (Lover)/All The Way on Zodiac 1016 failed to chart (both here), but that May she had a two-sided hit of sorts when Everybody Saw You struggled to # 34 R&B and # 118 Hot 100 Bubble Under on Zodiac 1017 b/w Can You Get Away? which finished at # 41 R&B. Her hit singles came to an end in February 1971 with You Ole Boo Boo You, a # 47 R&B on Zodiac 1020 b/w Gotta Break Away.

Four more releases for Zodiac would follow and seven of the sides are here: Hound Dog (not here)/Away From The Crowd (Zodiac 1022) and (I Want To Be) What Ever It Takes To Please You (Part 1)/(Part 2 Zodiac 1023) - both in 1971; Good 'N' Plenty/My Love Is Coming Down (Zodiac 1024) in 1972; and You Gotta Do The Same Thing/Didn't I Fool You (Zodiac 1032) in 1973. Another classic Northern Soul cult favourite, Just Lovin' You, comes from her Zodiac 1972 album Black Ruby.

She would go on to record for ABC following the demise of Zodiac, but without further hits.

Great Singer. Great Music. Awful Mastering. 12 Jan 2010
By oxxo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Seriously, this is a contender for the worst mastering ever.

How bad is it you ask?

First, borrow one of those old record players from your local library, then take your vinyl Ruby Andrews LPs & play them in front of cassette recorder. Then take that tape and play it back in a long hallway while listening through a closed door several yards away. Get the picture?

Needless to say, the original Zodiac studio master tapes were not used for this release. So now we have two truly useless Ruby Andrews collections to choose from: the one from Collectables (shudder), and this one.

Ruby Andrews deserves better treatment than this. Hopefully Ace/Kent or Edsel/Demon in the UK will come to the rescue...
