New Breed Workin' - Blues With A Rhythm, CD (£11.70)

With a third of the tracks debuting here, this release is aimed at R&B lovers looking for something new. We found a rich vein of New Orleans R&B in the AFO vaults. From that source we feature Nookie Boy’s 1962 release ‘I’ve Got A Feeling For You Baby’, Robbie Lee’s ‘Let Me Know’, which premiered on our “Gumbo Stew” series in the 90s, and Joan DuValle’s previously unissued ‘Lucky Girl’.

Chet “Poison” Ivey takes that Crescent City approach on ‘Now We Must Part’, a very scarce Gator 45. From the same Arock/Sylvia stable of New York come the nerve-tingling ‘Cruel World’ and a version of the Buddy Lucas-penned Drifters’ hit ‘Steamboat’, while previously unissued late 50s/early 60s blues busters by the little-known Pee Wee Foster, Cool Papa Jarvis and Big Charley & The Domans emanate from the world of Cleveland, Ohio indie blues labels. More master tape magic can be heard on Mary Johnson’s R&B dance classic ‘These Tears’, which comes with an added brass section and sax solo.

In addition to the Robbie Lee track, we have resurrected a couple of belters from earlier Ace releases that may have been missed by New Breed fans. Lord Luther’s ‘Poor Boy’s Song’ is a great black pop number, as loved by the Popcorn scene. Of earlier vintage is Big Boy Groves & Little Margie’s ‘Yes It’s You’, another perfect track for retro-dancers.

Varetta & the Thomases, Bertha Tillman, Beatrice Lee, Billy Ray, Little Betty and the Music City Soul Brothers provide elusive 45 tracks that collector’s crave, as do Danny White with the super-groovy ‘The Twitch’, the sexy French intro of which has made it a hit in hip DJ circles around the world, and Ray Agee with a 1967 offering that features soulful traits rarely associated with the bluesman. The usually soul-oozing Ovations, on the other hand, go R&B for once with ‘What Did I Do Wrong’.

Be the first kid on the block with these brand new, old sounds.
