Deep Soul - Label Resurrected with Two New 45s

Deep Soul - Label Resurrected with Two New 45s cover

The end of the just gone month saw the first release from Ace Records timely resurrection of the 'Deep Soul' label.  

The below quote lifted from the press blurb sums it all up quite well...

'The label will continue to champion deep soul sides, bringing them to the public’s attention and making them available to fans who may have missed their original issue.'

 

The first release sees a double header featuring tracks from Jaibi and The Hesitations

 1. You Got Me - Jaibi
  2. Gotta Find A Way - The Hesitations

 ‘You Got Me’ is by Larry Banks’ second wife Jaibi. Dave Godin included this on the very first “Deep Soul Treasures” comp and said the below of it...

'Without Jaibi’s magnificent recording ‘You Got Me’ my life would have been less, and certainly she will always have a special place in my heart and memory because of it'

This track is the same version as the 45 but with added, very subtle, female backing vocals.

 

The flip has the vinyl debut of the Hesitations’ sublime vocal group sound ‘Gotta Find A Way’

Can listen to both sides Deep Soul 01 below

 1. You Got Me - Jaibi

  2. Gotta Find A Way -The Hesitations

 

Also as part of the launch and now out and about is the second 'Deep Soul' 45 release again featuring stand up tracks from two artists

  1. Deep Shadows - Little Ann 
  2. Stay Away - The Turn Arounds

Deep Shadows by Little Ann is an unissued Dave Hamilton produced master from Detroit which was recorded around 1967.

It has grown steadily in the rare soul public's esteem ever since its CD debut in 1998. It has been covered by new bands and features in a very atmospheric Jordan trainers internet ad in the USA.

Kent have only just discovered that the magnificent 1966-recorded ballad Stay Away was by Los Angeles vocal group the Turn Arounds. It was recorded in Atlanta but has the feel of a classic mid 60s Chess-recorded ballad; no doubt exactly what the group was trying to achieve at the time.

 

Can listen to both sides of Deep Soul 02 here

  1. Deep Shadows - Little Ann

 

  2. Stay Away - The Turn Arounds

And David Nathan kindly allowed us to use the label design and name in memory of Dave and the Soul City triumvirate of those two and Robert Blackmore.

 

If they sell well we'll do more; support your local licensee!

Pre-ordered mine in November, and received this week. Great, great music and hope there will be many more to come. Will they be sourced exclusively from the Ace/Kent catalogue ( Judy Clay-Its Me, please. Stax sampler album only) or will we see some tracks licensed from the independents (NowAgain have had an Eddie Finlay track on one of their comps, but didn't use his utterly heart-rending "Sad Honored Night")?

Superb records. I was in Sister Ray (Berwick Street) on Saturday and saw these in the racks.

We're testing the water with these two, hopefully they'll sell well (initial response is very good) and we can expand into all areas of soul balladry. It'll be down to sales in the end.

 

Thanks for the positive comments.

One Kent track that must go on, and is made for this label, is Loleatta Holloway-This mans arms ( the longer version).

Very good shout, thanks

I have to say all 4 tracks on both records are brilliant and to have Deep Shadows issued as a single is something special, its just a pity Little Ann inst here to enjoy the success,

No too keen on Jaibi. Never really understood what's so special about that track. But 2nd release is a blast. Best tracks of both Kent Ballad CDs on one 45. Wow! Order on its way.

@Ady: Do you have the rights of Arthur Freeman - I want to come home?

Same here, never kept a copy of Jaibi but I always picked it up and before it become a "collector" item amongst the "soul" or "northern soul" front, I always sold it as a "pop" record. Which is what it always sounded to me. With all the respect due to those who, like Dave Godin who listen to it differently than me, I understand the selector's choice for it's release as the label revive with Dave G. special mention for it. ***** Ady
