Anna King - Anna King

Anna King
The James Brown Revue has included numerous 'feature' female singers through the decades, from Tammy Montgomery(Terrell), Sugar Pie DeSanto and Vicki Anderson to Yvonne Fair and Lynn Collins, but while Mr Brown included most of these ladies in 'live' LPs, and others had solo contracts with his label, only Anna King enjoyed the privilege of James Brown producing an album by her.It was 1963, and Brown had just signed with Smash Records to score a big pop hit with 'Out of Sight'. He noted the quality of Anna's voice, had her sign with Smash and produced the "Back To Soul" LP. The album includes Anna's distinctive versions of several soul and blues hits and some Brown originals written under various pseudonyms, plus a storming duet with Bobby Byrd, 'Baby Baby Baby', which took her into the R&B top 50 early in 1964 and 'bubbling under' the Billboard Hot 100.Thus with Anna's stirring, soulful vocals, a range of familiar songs, the support of the James Brown Band and the production skills of Mr Brown himself, "Back To Soul" was a notable album release on UK Philips in 1964, though it enjoyed but modest sales to the avid soul fans of the day.Consequently it has long been a rare collectors' item, a situation which will be remedied by its long-awaited re-issue on Shout!.This collectable album has never been reissued and hence this is the first time on CD.

Finally Got Over - Deep Soul From The Classic Era

Shout Records presents 'Finally Got Over - Deep Soul From The Classic Era' featuring the great Don Varner who provides a superb example of Sothern Soul which combines the best elements of gospel intensity and soulful emotion.

Don Varner had a powerful baritone voice and could sing rasping uptempo items and pleading ballads with equal quality of performance.Shout Records have pleasure in presenting the first comprehensive CD collection by one of the true giants of Southern Soul, with the assistance and endorsement of his widow. The re-issue production was co-ordinated by Clive Richardson, who commissioned booklet notes from David Cole, editor of In The Basement, the specialist soul magazine, and who conducted the last interview with Don Varner before his tragic death in 2002. Includes all Don Varners recordings released on the Quinvy and South Camp labels, plus the unreleased material, and are truly Uncut Southern Soul Gems from 1968-1974 . He really was a Southern Artist, for as he said about live touring at the time: ".I never went further west than New Orleans".

Funny (How Time Slips Away)

A contemporary of Junior Parker and Bobby Bland in the southern states. Where the first presented the bluesier side, Bland and Hinton presented a sophisticated soulful side of R&B. They also shared the same big-band backing group for many recordings, who as well as providing a rich brass backing to ballads, could also 'jump' with the best of them. Joe Hinton was a gospel singer with a melodic tenor voice who was tempted to the bright lights and big pay days of R&B by Don Robey, owner of Duke/Peacock Records in Houston, Texas, who launched the Backbeat label as a vehicle for this fine soul talent.
He recorded more than a dozen singles between 1958 and his tragic death in August 1968, but only managed to aspire to the bright lights with his notable tender and striking version of Willie Nelson's country ballad 'Funny (How Time Slips Away)', which rose into the national Top 20 in 1964, ironically the year in which Billboard chose to suspend publication of their R&B chart! He followed that with an R&B hit the next year, the with an LP on Duke, and a further posthumous tribute LP was issued in 1973 when the catalogue was acquired by ABC, but neither LP has been available for the past three decades!
Shout Records is thus please and proud to issue the first CD re-issue combining the tracks from both LPs, which includes soul with a touch of gospel and blues, some jumping R&B and some breath-taking ballads - in all a fitting and long-awaited tribute to "Just A Kid Named Joe".

scene for several years now, along with other favourites Ain't It the
Truth and Tore Up Over You. While his sessions with Chips Moman and
Tommy Cogbill at AGP in Memphis yielded a handful of tracks which have
been the Holy Grail of Southern Soul fans since their original release
in 1969. Also available on Shout (Shout 27) is an anthology of

Roy'ssingles for RCA and AGP. The good RCA tracks have been buried down
the years, while all but one of the AGP tracks have never been available
