Fortune Teller - A Singles Collection 1960-67 new orleans hits and northern soul gems - Benny Spellman

Fortune Teller - A Singles Collection 1960-67 new orleans hits and northern soul gems
The sum of Benny Spellman’s recordings carried a greater influence than the individual parts achieved at the time. He recorded the original version of Lipstick Traces (On a Cigarette) , a b-side in 1962, before being covered by the O’Jays as a chart hit in 1965. The original version of Fortune Teller was an R&B hit in 1962 before being covered more famously internationally by the Rolling Stones and it becoming a staple of many a 60’s Beat Band. Then the million seller Spellman did contribute to was not under his own name, Mother In Law being an Ernie K-Doe record on which Spellman sang the (un-credited) baritone response.
All three tracks can be heard on this album, in which Shout Records is pleased to present the singles cut by Spellman for Ace, Minit, Alon and Sansu Records during the 1960s, along with rare bonus tracks from the Minit sessions and the instrumental version of ‘Fortune Teller’, suitably entitled Crystal Ball, by the Stokes, a New Orleans combo featuring Allen Toussaint.
This album of one of the most notable New Orleans voices, produced by Allen Toussaint, includes many tracks which have also stood the test of time being played regularly in Northern Soul clubs including other favourites such as This Is For You My Love .
With no other album on the market of Spellman’s work this album, including a detailed booklet, and newly re-mastered from the original tapes, will find many takers amongst New Orleans R&B and Northern Soul fans.
