First artist that comes to mind is the great Chicago singer /songwriter Johnny Moore. Loads of great 7`s on different labels but no Lp`s to my knowledge (except Grapevine`s superb compilation CD).

You’ve confused me here.

Do you mean it the other way around? i.e. got an album release but no singles. Then again, that’s ‘prog-rock’ isn’t it?

Not sure who you mean by ‘soul stars’ v ‘greats’ can you clarify.

I would have thought to get offered a album release you would need to have had at least 2 decent nation US hits (1 for each side) , plus recorded 8 other track for a typical ‘5 a side’ album release?

The Monkey, Welfare Cheese, Crazy, Sweet Lies, I'm A Peace Loving Man, Don't Lead Me On, I've Got To Run For My Life, (Lucky To Be Loved By You ok not Thelma) and yes they all came out at different times but almost enough there for an album that never was from the late great Emanuel Laskey..........maybe there should be a best of comilation from one of the record companies over here add these recordings to his later stuff and wow!!! same could be said of Darrow Fletcher prime example of another prolific artist who never had an album out at the time.....come on Mr Croasdell.

Good Call Mark. Maybe someone should do that...mmmm. Of course the great question of Berry Gordy was why no Kim Weston or Velvelettes LP?

Probably down to cost in a lot of cases especially the small labels like Thelma, printing sleeves was no doubt costly and the profit margin on sales compared to a hitting local 45 maybe was to small making an album a big risk, now Motown there's a different story, Chris Clark and no Kim Weston I wonder why!

Here's another thing singles that say "from album " so and so"" but you never see the album!

Lou Johnson - recorded an LP but it was never released - I think, supposedly where his version of The Panic Is On comes from

He has had LP/LPs released though, in the 70s.

The 70's don't count as far as soul music is concerned :thumbsup:

I'm sure I read somewhere the reason Kim didn't get an lp out at Motown was because she was married to producer Mickey Stevenson, they didn't want to show favouritism. Carolyn crawford should have had a lp at motown but didn't. Jack Montgomery, Ray Pollard should have had lp's as well.

How could Jack Motngomery have had an LP, he only recorded 4 singles in his life didn't he, on 4 different labels, what, was K-Tel going to put it out??

Sweet southern soul-Cotillion SD9008

To be honest Dave, 1968 is far enough forward for me :wicked:

Thats' "northern soul" wise I mean.

Ordinary / commercial soul whatever, not bothered about, I just haven't been able to adapt to 70's and beyond sounds being played alongside 60's, and I never will. All those that do like em, good luck to you, but it's just not for me, thats all.

Although of course I contradict myself every time by saying I like the 'modern' stuff that used to be played 75-77, but after that, I'm a lost cause.

Back to your question, I doubt very much I would enjoy a soul Lp recorded in 1969.

I would, however, enjoy a reggae LP recorded in 1969.

Oops :ohmy:unsure.gif should read the thread.

Re the Kim Weston, yes she had Kim Kim Kim on Volt or subsidary, great LP with a killer version of When Something Is Wrong With My Baby, a record I listed in a top 5 for a certain ex NME/Echoes journalist who I knew would never make it very far in the media :D:D

Cheers

Never say, never. You never know you may get a bump on the head and become a modern soul stalwart :D

Someone mentioned 'Rare Stamps' so another two names up from me as they shared an album but no solo as far as i'm aware J.J. Barnes and of course Steve Mancha...oh and add Lee Rogers to the mix can't count a re issue album from a few years ago but i guess we are talking from the time i.e the 60's???? all three of these prolific singers could have relesed an album at the time but sadly never did.

J.J. Barnes released an album in the 70s on Perception.

What's that got to do with anything Alex Brown did less 45's than that and still got an lp released.I'm sure there will be alot more as well. Also have you never owned an lp with only 8 tracks on it.
