  2. Darrow Fletcher – My Young Misery – LP Vinyl – IN STOCK NOW – AT LAST !! – BUT WELL WORTH WAITING FOR. Sound bites and full info here - https://www.firstexperiencerecords.com/product/darrow-fletcher-my-young-misery-lp-vinyl-pre-order-in-stock-24-4-20/ All new lp vinyl releases - https://www.firstexperiencerecords.com/product-category/vinyl-lps/new-release-vinyl-lps/ We have released two Darrow Fletcher CD on Kent but he has never had a vinyl LP of his own – of any description. This compilation concentrates on his Chicago years, though it adds a rare demo, ‘Hope For Love’, only previously available on a “Masterpieces” Kent CD. Also, we have included his one-off late-70s version of fellow Chicago-born writers Grey & Hanks’ ‘No Limit’, also originally a “Masterpieces” track and a now-deleted Kent Select 45; these fetch £100+ on some sales lists. The mid-60s sides speak for themselves. He began his career with the acclaimed soul blast of ‘The Pain Gets A Little Deeper’ (an Elton John favourite of the time!) and followed up with dancefloor classics ‘My Young Misery’, ‘What Good Am I Without You’, ‘Infatuation’ and ‘Gotta Draw The Line’. As was common in those days, the hip dance sides were coupled with tender ballads such as ‘Sitting There That Night’, ‘Little Girl’ and ‘My Judgement Day’. Those were particularly well received in his Chicago homebase and have been admired by slow-groove scenes like Lowriders in Los Angeles ever since. Darrow’s late 60s recordings, though recorded in Chicago, were issued on Los Angeles labels controlled by Universal. By 1971 his producer – stepfather Johnnie Haygood – had reverted to using his own Chicago imprint Genna for the last recording. SIMPLY SOUL MAIL ORDER - ESSENTIAL SOULFUL GROOVES !!
  3. Darrell Banks - It's Not Fair To Me 7" (Previously Un-Issued) - Picture Sleeve - LIMITED EDITION - Pre-Order - In Stock Late July 2020. IN STOCK - Late July 2020 - Pre-Order your copy now for delivery as soon as they arrive - https://www.firstexperiencerecords.com/product/darrell-banks-its-not-fair-to-me-7-previously-un-issued-picture-sleeve-limited-edition-pre-order-in-stock-late-july-2020/ ALL NEW 7" VINYL RELEASES - https://www.firstexperiencerecords.com/product-category/vinyl-singles/vinyl-singles-soul-rb-jazz-house-7-singles/ Although we are beyond 40 releases across the 3 labels, here we are at the milestone of #30 on our main outfit Cannonball Records. We just wanted to celebrate it with one special release. The cooperation between our label and Detroit’s finest Peoples Records dates back to our #004 Big Lee Dowell. The slow ballad on acetate that later became the record many of you know as “What I Done Wrong” in fact was among the tens of listenings me and Brad had on a sleepless winter night of 5 years ago in Detroit. We have been doing projects together ever since. Now it’s the case of this beautiful previously unissued recording that was part of a session Mr. Banks did on Boxing Day of 1967 at the legendary Atlantic Studios in New York. In particular 2 of the songs recorded on that day went lost for decades. Here we present one of them, trying to give it the deserved justice. No one knows how the acetate made it there, but it was found and physically restored by Brad in Detroit and being such an important find for the world of Soul we eventually managed to track down and inform Darrell’s’ sister Lois, who rounded up what remains of the family and gave us the green light to the project. We are testing the beta version of this new little software that does wonders when it comes to isolate vocals and, given the bouncing nature of the original song, we just thought a humble groovy alternate version would have been just perfect for the flipside. So we did. Being the man a treasured icon of the Northern Soul scene there’s plenty of bibliography out there that tells about this incredible Artist, who was moody and quick tempered although an overall mighty entertainer, so there’s no point in resuming here once again his life and career background. We are all going through difficult times and many of the historical racial issues that dominated the world at the times of Darrell Banks are not yet solved. In these sad sad times for the human race we are just proud to release a previously unissued song from yet another black man shot to death by a cop in the streets of Detroit on a spring day of 1970. Black Lives Matter. Always did and always will. #blacklivesmatter SIMPLY SOUL MAIL ORDER - ESSENTIAL SOULFUL GROOVES !!

The A-side, “I Called You Back Baby”, an answer song to the deep Gloria Barnes soul cut is THE uptempo number from Kelly’s album The Tales People Tell. Super funky drums from Monophonics’ Austin Bohlman and percussion from Jungle Fire’s Steve Haney make the breakbeat on this tune super tough. And after you’re done sweating, you’re gonna need time to cool off with the one you love. So flip the record over to burn one down with “Impressions Of You”, a cut that’s already been embraced by the lowrider sweet soul scene. This is a double-barreled sure shot!

On the flip is the more midtempo ‘Our Day Is Here’, again featuring a lovelorn Robinson baring his heart and soul over the brilliant arrangements and top class musicianship from the legendary partnership of Miami stalwarts Clarence Reid and Willie Clarke, the musical muscle behind this wondrous and exceedingly rare 45.
