New releases from Ace records
As it says the latest new releases from good ole Ace records, quality releases no matter the genre
Los Angeles Soul Volume 2 - Kent-Modern's Black Music Legacy 1963-1971
Various Artists (Kent/ Modern)
24 more tracks from the deep reserves of Kent/Modern. The selection is a thorough cross-section of the company’s favoured stylings – blues, funk, straight soul, jazz-tinged ballads and deep wailers along with a handful of soul dancers.
The Daisy Age
Various Artists (Saint Etienne)
CD and LP
It wasn’t really a movement, barely even a moment, but the Daisy Age was an ethos that briefly permeated pop, R&B and hip hop. The name was coined by Long Island trio De La Soul; they claimed D.A.I.S.Y. stood for “da inner sound, y’all”, but then De La Soul said a lot of things. Playfulness and good humour were central to their 1989 debut album, which cast a long, multi-coloured shadow. The 90s, it promised, would be a lot easier going than the 80s.
Link Sings Elvis
Two sides of Link and Elvis pressed on a limited edition 10” LP. The LOUD side rocks out in the classic Link, turbo-charged, way, while the flipside takes down the tempo and finds Link in a reflective mood with five ballads.
Live It Up! Bayswater Beat Girls 1964-1967
Various Artists (Beat Girls)
Hand-picked 60s she-pop from UK Philips, Fontana and Mercury, including many titles new to CD.
I'll See You In Hell First B/W I Ain't Givin' Up
Various Artists (VA Kent singles)
Recorded in Muscle Shoals, this superb mid-tempo track features Mitchell at his best. The flip features Godfrey’s reading of the song he produced for both Joe Simon and Millie Jackson.
When The Boy That You Love B/W Everybody Knows
This Bob Holmes-written and produced dancefloor filler was only discovered in the mid-90s and appeared on a 6TS . The plaintive ballad ‘Everybody Knows’ is making its vinyl debut and will appeal to both Southern and Deep Soul aficionados.
Apartment #9 B/W Crying Like A Baby
Little Johnny Hamilton
Hamilton wails away his pain on this searing deep soul slowy abetted by some righteous girl backing singers. The flip was a release on the one-off Soul Shack label.
Just Be Yourself B/W It's Everything About You That I Love
The furious yet solid rhythm and catchy title-line of this Kenneth Ruffin song has captivated soul dancers for many years making the originals expensive and hard to find. The flip was the group’s last release.
