Product Description

Kent's excavation of the Sounds Of Memphis and XL Records vaults continues with this latest compilation. It features 22 tracks recorded between 1965 and 1972, 18 of which are previously unreleased. From the 1960s they include the final discoveries by label favourite Barbara Brown, two recently unearthed recordings that are as strong as anything she actually released. Plus Ann Hodge's Your Own Free Will and both sides of Caroll Lloyd's 1968 Tower 45. Kent have three astounding numbers by Rudolph Taylor and another gem from William Bollinger. All of these titles demonstrating that there was more to 1960s Memphis Soul than Stax. From the first half of the 70s we can experience a smoothing out of the city's sounds through some previously unknown recordings by Billy Cee, Art Jerry Miller, Vision and Fran Farley. This release sees the return to the series of both George Jackson and Dan Greer. The compilation comes with in-depth sleeve notes and a selection of previously unseen photos and memorabilia.

There is a problem with some of these 'discovered in the vaults' tracks. That is they wern't good enough to release in the 60's. Some of them aren't good enough to release period. However there are enough good tracks on this one to make it worth a listen. Perhaps Gems is a bit of a stretch.

Further Delights in Soul Mining! 30 Jan. 2015
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you have the first "Lost Soul Gems" volume from Kent, or any of the other compilations of vintage soul from the XL and Sounds of Memphis labels, you will need to get this latest volume of lost soul gems too. Like those other compilations, this one is packed with expertly crafted, sweetly sung, and passionately performed soul music. The artists might not be well know to most music fans, but this is high quality material.

The last paragraph of the liner notes succinctly sums up what to expect on this CD: "These recordings were made between 1964 and 1974. They confirm Memphis as one of the most significant centers of American soul music and the importance of (label founder) Gene Lucchessi's hobby in documenting that sound."

Indeed, this truly is significant music and it's a shame that songwriters and recording artists as excellent as George Jackson and Dan Greer (both represented by fine songs on this CD) are not held in higher esteem or even known to most soul music fans. Familiar names from previous Sounds of Memphis compilations also pop on this one too, including tracks, especially from personal favorites such as Art Jerry Miller, the Jacksonians, and William Bollinger. The last track on the CD is a cover of Johnny Rivers' "Poor Side of Town" by Carroll Lloyd. It's a bit more pop in style than the other tracks on the compilation, but still a worthy addition. Really, you can't go wrong with this one: 22 unearthed soul delights that will please fans of '60s and '70s Southern Soul. .

Like the other compilations in this series from Kent, the CD comes with a very informative 12-page booklet that includes some vintage photos, information about the recording artists (although a few are so obscure little to nothing is known about them), and song times. Due to the murky recording details about some of these songs, even songwriting credits are not available for some tracks.
