Lots of good singers and interesting groups on this one.  It should be excellent, especially for fans of the '60s Chicago Soul Sound, and Kirchstein's Wisconsin version of it.  I can't wait to hear those recordings.

The Esquires track is beyond amazing, thanks to Mr Carr 

Can we hear snippets of those LP cuts?  I couldn't find any listening files on the sellers' link.

Thanks.  I have The Supremes Four, Twilighters and Harvey Scales & 7 Sounds, and Birdlegs & Pauline on 45.  But I never heard The Esquires (which is very nice).  I hadn't ever heard Step by Step, and 2 of the Betty Moorer or The Devilettes.  I guess I should have gone to Kirchstein's more than once.
