Release notes

Formed by drummer Bill Curtis in 1970 the Fatback Band signed to Perception Records who issued this debut album in America in 1972.

Recorded at Blue Rock Studio in New York, “Let’s Do It Again” featuring the soon to be patented Fatback sound, the album included originals like ‘Street Dance’ – that became a Billboard R&B hit in 1973 – ‘Free Form’, ‘Take A Ride (On The Soul Train)’ , ‘Give Me One More Chance’, ‘Goin’ To See My Baby’ and the title track. There were also cover versions of Jimmy Webb’s ‘Wichita Lineman’, David Gates ‘Baby I’m A Want You’ and the evergreen ‘Green Green Grass Of Home’.

“Let’s Do It Again” has been out of print for many years and Ace are delighted to be reissuing it on vinyl - with the full cooperation of Fatback founder Bill Curtis.

Southbound Info

Back in 1989, Doctor Soul first slapped Southbound’s bottom and welcomed it into the Ace family as a new baby sister for Kent and BGP. Kent and BGP’s remit were both much more defined by certain eras and genres of black American music than they are. Southbound was intended as a place to showcase the 1970s repertoire that Ace had acquired via the purchase of New York’s Spring label.

Nowadays you can find a great deal more modern-crossover soul on Kent, and 70s/80s soul and dance on BGP, than in 1989. As a result, Southbound’s role within the Ace family is also less rigidly defined
