Best Of – Marcels

front

Lest anyone think the Marcels were a one-song phenomenon (i.e. "Blue Moon"), this CD will be a valuable learning experience, as well as delightful listening. Drawing primarily from their singles (with three LP cuts and an unissued outtake filling out the song lineup), this is a fairly dazzling array of vocal acrobatics, much of it hung around old pop standards, among them "Summertime," "That Old Black Magic," "My Melancholy Baby," and "Over the Rainbow," as well as songs of more recent vintage. Among the discoveries to be made here is a gloriously radiant recording of an otherwise "lost" Barry Mann/Cynthia Weill number called "Find Another Fool." Cornelius Harp's lead on "Summertime" is a glorious thing to hear, while the brilliantly arranged "Heartaches" -- dominated by Walt Maddox's baritone -- which managed to hit number nine nationally, manages to encompass something essentially poignant about R&B and rock & roll, and elicit a laugh or two (or three) in the process. Original producer Stu Phillips, whose subsequent career involved him in everything from the Monkees to the soundtrack of Battlestar Galactica, did a brilliant job on these tracks, which hold up very well today, the voices always out front and in your face, and just enough rhythm section and whatever lead instrument (usually a sax) to sweeten the mix and add a little punch behind the group.

Very Best Of – Coasters

The Coasters - The Very Best Of - Front

The Coasters were the 1950s' (and early rock's) dominant novelty/comic R&B ensemble, benefiting from Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller's lyrical wit and inspired production. They weren't simply proficient clowns; The Coasters were a skilled vocal unit whose talents were utilized on slice-of-life narratives, prophetic youth manifestos, and even an occasional teen anthem, as well as the prototype humorous vehicles "Yakety Yak" and "Poison Ivy." Although Rhino has already given them the deluxe two-disc treatment, consumers who either don't want that much Coasters material or prefer only the hits are nicely served by this 16-track anthology. It contains every major release, plus valuable lesser-known selections such as "Shoppin' for Clothes" and "What About Us." (allmusic)

Complete Blue Cat Recordings – Ad Libs

The Ad Libs - The Complete Blue Cat Recordings - (Front)

The Ad Libs only ever scored one smash hit, the bounding "The Boy from New York City," but their jazz-inflected songwriting style was unique enough to set them somewhat apart from the droves of post-doo wop R&B bands popping up in the early '60s. The Complete Blue Cat Recordings is another extensive "from the vaults"-style collection from reissue label Real Gone Music, exhaustively combing the archives to unearth a wealth of rarities from this mostly uncelebrated group. Of course their biggest hit is here, in four versions including an instrumental variation and different alternate takes. Other singles that didn't make waves that big -- like "I'm Just a Down Home Girl" and the Ellie Greenwich-penned "He Ain't No Angel" -- also showcase Mary Ann Thomas' lead vocals bedded by her all-male backup singers. This arrangement of female lead and male backing vocals was less common in the Red Bird/Blue Cat roster, and had scored hits for enough early-'60s vocal groups to inspire the formerly all-male band (first known as the Creators) to add Thomas and regroup as the Ad Libs. Despite the fact that their most successful tunes came out of this new arrangement, group leader and primary songwriter John Taylor still takes the lead on tracks like the sock-hopping "Johnny My Boy" and the wistful yodel of "Oo-Wee Oh Me Oh My." The majority of The Complete Blue Cat Recordings is made up of previously unreleased material, including several fully realized studio songs that never saw the light of day and seven tracks from a 1964 a cappella demo. Much like other archival digs on Real Gone Music from the Red Bird Records vault, this collection includes several unlisted tracks of in-studio recording session chatter and between-song crosstalk. While these bonus tracks are rarely much more than a one-time listen, the behind-the-scenes intimacy gives humanity and personality to the often anonymous-feeling voices behind the bygone music. the Ad Libs were lesser players in their era, and parts of this collection speak to their unorganized scramble for another hit. The never-issued track "The Slime" (potentially a new gutter-inspired dance craze?) is particularly suspect, if amusing in hindsight. Even though the multiple versions and repeated songs get a little repetitive, this collection works more as a completist's anthology than a best-of package. Casual listeners might not find a lot to return to here, but for anyone invested in the early days of the girl group era or the Red Bird story, this is a rare glimpse into a deeper layer of that history.

40th Anniversary Edition – Skyliners

Front

More than one person has called the Skyliners the greatest vocal group of all time, and although every act has their fans, that kind of praise is telling. The group's 1959 hit "Since I Don't Have You" is one of the most sublime, mood-setting singles of its era, and it's no wonder it has been so widely used in motion pictures. 40th Anniversary Collection is a two-disc set filled with 40 cross-licensed tracks that trace the group's history from the '50s through the '70s, including every chart hit along the way. The attention to detail makes this one of the best packages Collectables has assembled. Many buyers will be content with a simple best-of collection, but 40th Anniversary Edition is an excellent expanded anthology for those who want to take a closer look than a single disc can provide.

Federal Singles – Royals

front

The Royals were discovered at a talent show in 1952 by Johnny Otis, who brought them to Federal Records, and even wrote the group's first single, "Every Beat of My Heart," which was released by Federal that same year. "Every Beat of My Heart" would later be a big hit for Gladys Knight & the Pips in 1961 (in an upbeat version), but The Royals' rendition failed to generate much attention, even though it had a chiming backing track and vocal harmonies that glowed with an endearing sweetness. "Heart" leads off this collection of the complete Royals singles, and is clearly one of the highlights. The group at this point featured the lead vocals of Charles Sutton, with most of this early material written by the group's guitarist and arranger Alonzo Tucker. As much doo wop as R&B, these earliest tracks, like Tucker's "Fifth Street Blues," are innocent, relaxed affairs. Everything changed, however, when original member Lawson Smith entered the U.S. Army in 1953 and was replaced by a young singer named Hank Ballard. Ballard, although still only 16-years-old, brought a rougher R&B edginess to the table, and his songs had a decided raunchy tone that changed the temper of the group. Ballard's "Get It" had some success out of the box in 1953, but it was his even more suggestive "Work with Me Annie" a year later that really put The Royals on the musical map. Well, sort of. As the single climbed the charts, The Royals changed their name to the Midnighters, and by the time "Annie" hit number one on the R&B list, that was the name on the label, making it, in essence, the final single by The Royals and the debut single by the Midnighters all rolled into one. Federal Singles collects the 45s issued by The Royals up to this transition, including "Annie" (plus an alternate take of the song), and illustrates the path the group took from sweet doo wop to double entendre-laden (and successful) R&B. (allmusic)
