              The DoorsMorrison Hotel Elektra (1970)

              After a couple of albums that were more noted for hit singles that smacked too much of pop music for their fans, namely 1968's "Waiting for the Sun" with "Hello, I Love You" and 1969's "The Soft Parade" with "Touch Me," the Doors got back to their roots with "Morrison Hotel." Every track is a killer! Essential album.

                                Expanded LP edition of ‘dub poet’ Linton Kwesi Johnson’s classic 1984 album, featuring the original album + three bonus tracks. Bespoke gatefold sleeve with enhanced artwork.Remastered at Abbey Road, released on heavyweight YELLOW coloured vinyl. Produced by Linton Kwesi Johnson and the legendary Dennis Bovell (‘Blackbeard’), the album continues LKJ’s fierce, politically-charged view of Britain at the time. His outspoken comments on the 1981 Brixton riots, the New Cross fire that killed 13 black teenagers and confronting the National Front are all tackled but with an accessible and strident dub-reggae beat.Extensive liner notes from the original LP, by the late political activist and journalist Darcus Howe, are included in the package. Darcus was depicted in the recent Steve McQueen film, ‘Small Axe: Mangrove’ on BBC TV. Out of print on vinyl for many years.

                                              Carla Whitney (with Choker Campbell and the Super Sounds), a relatively unknown soul gem that has flown under the radar since its release 46 years ago. Backed by Motown royalty Choker Campbell, the velvet-throated Whitney is like Aretha, Marlena Shaw and Vicki Anderson all rolled into one, flitting from cottony crooners to full-out funk stormers. Campbell was the leader of Motown’s live band, the saxophonist and conductor who kept any number of Motortown Revue shows driving along. A respected leader of men, and later a talented producer. Somehow in 1975 the nearly 60-year-old Campbell managed to find his way to Canada, where he hooked up with the little-known but dyno-voiced Carla Whitney in Toronto, producing the only LP she would ever make and issuing it on the then-obscure Attic label. For the first time since its original release Attic are reissuing the album for RSD 2021, at a lot cheaper price than the original copies, if you can find one (£500!) 180g heavyweight vinyl.

                                                  500 pressed on black vinyl. As the Stax/Volt Revue was busy touring the world during 1967, the city of Memphis had become the place to cut soul records. America’s record companies were sending artists down in droves to grab a piece of that magical sound the city’s recording engineers and producers were conjuring up. Yet Stax wasn’t the only place in town cutting hit records. While Sam & Dave were recording Soul Man at Ardent Studios, Chips Moman was cutting James Carr’s The Dark End of the Street at Willie Mitchell’s Royal Studios. Moman also had a couple of studios of his own, East Memphis and American Sound, where John Richbourg recorded many Sound Stage 7 artists. This LP brings you sixteen tracks cut in the city during that golden year. It features some artists you know and others you may not, and ranges from upfront dancers to deep soul ballads – Memphis Soul ’67 at its very best!

Recorded at Ardent Studios, Memphis, it marked a continuation of the experimentation explored on the preceding Screamadelica album, taking in acid house, country blues and a rare Dennis Wilson cover across its four tracks. Long out of print, the 2021 RSD edition is the first official reissue since 1992. Artwork and packaging replicates that of the original EP
