Kaleidoscopin : Exploring Prisms Of The Past - Wondermints

Kaleidoscopin : Exploring Prisms Of The Past
Emerging in the early 90s with a series of now legendary, self-made cassettes, Wondermints quickly developed a reputation for being one of the pre-eminent bands operating in Los Angeles. Over the next decade, four albums followed, garnering massive acclaim, especially in Japan. In addition to all this, the band recorded many stray tracks, placed on now long-out-of print compilations, soundtracks including the main title to Austin Powers and singles. Just one listen to Kaleidoscopin and it immediately becomes apparent why, in 1996, Brian Wilson said, "If I'd had Wondermints in 1967, I'd have taken Smile out on the road."

Singles A’s & B’s Vol.1 1964-1966

Shout! Records is delighted to present the first CD series to collate the singles recordings by Joe Tex from his hit years on the Dial label and their Atlantic licensee, chronologically sequenced, and featuring the A-side and B-side of each 45. On this, Volume One, covering the years 1964 to 1966.

Joe was already a veteran of a decade of recordings on King, Ace and earlier Dial releases when producer Buddy Killen took him to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in October 1964 to record ‘Hold What You've Got'. The disc was a crossover smash hit, and the rest is history. Each of the 11 A-sides in this collection reached the R&B top 20 and the US national Hot 100, providing a lasting impression of infectious mix of humour and soul philosophy that graced the music of Joe Tex.

Although there have been numerous CD re-issues of Joe's music, all to date have been either selective ‘greatest hits' collections or have re-packaged various albums, so this is a ground-breaking ‘first' in chronicling the illustrious career of the man dubbed ‘The Clown Prince of Soul', Joe Tex.

First collection of Joe Tex singles in sequence of releases. Features all the A-sides and B-sides & 11 R&B top 20 hits including two chart-toppers. Each single was also a Billboard Hot 100 hit. Booklet features track by track annotation.
