Product Description

Kent Harris remarkable and long-lived career has never been fully documented. This CD spotlights Romark, his main soul label. It showcases most of the twenty or so 45s that were issued; none are common and all have musical value. Harris continued his soul productions into the 80s, several appearing on the Sheridan House imprint. Kent have included some alternate versions of the more soulful numbers from that period. Kent's tape collection also revealed previously unissued recordings including O' Malley Jones Pay And Be On My Way , a stomping instrumental called South Central Slide and Larry Atkins version of Towana's Help Me Get This Feeling Back Again . Larry Atkins Northern Soul rarities Have Mercy On Me and Ain't That Love Enough are here, as is the magnificent soul vocal group performance by the Lon-Genes on Dream Girl ; a super-rare mid-tempo beauty that is yet to have its day. Early soul/R&B comes from Donoman, Eddie Bridges and the Ike & Tina-inspired Phillips Sisters, while Kent Harris sister - the accomplished Marcene Dimples Harris has a side of each of her three Romark releases featured. Blues fans will be happy with Ray Agee, Cry Baby Curtis and Jimmy Preacher Ellis offerings while the Fran-Cettes, Kent Harris s wife, Ty Karim, and Faye Ross will please female soul fanciers. The breadth of Harris productions is impressive, it also featured modern soul dancers and even a shade or two of funk (check Out Marcene Harris Work It Out ) sneaking into the mix. The extensive booklet explores an area of Los Angeles black music that has never before been fully charted.

Format: Audio CD
The 1st four tracks of this compilation are truly fantastic comprising one Northern Soul stomper "Ty Karim - All At Once" with delicious bluesy overtones in the vocal, one proto-funk burner "Marcene Harris - Work It Out" with an amazing burbling organ-line, one early 70's socially conscious song "Obie Jessie Seeds Of Freedom - Beautiful Day My Brother (Keep Moving On)" with an exemplary message & vocal, and finally a blues-soul masterpiece in Ray Agee's "It's Hard To Explain" from 1972 with some stinging guitar. After this alas the remainder is non-essential and worse there are about five horrifying tracks from the early 80's; synth'n'drum machine efforts that are best forgotten. It is a shame KENT didn't admit to themselves that there wasn't enough primo material here to fill a CD and instead divvied the admittedly great stuff that's here onto other various artist/label compilations (perhaps their always excellent multi-label Northern Soul or Cellarful of Soul efforts).

However the upside is that this album is downloadable (not always the case with KENT/ACE compilations) and so those first four excellent tracks can be accessed at reasonable cost though be careful where you get them from since not all sites provide them at 320Kbps so do your homework before getting them (I'm hinting here....).
