EMI Soul Supply.
35 Minutes of Blues & Soul.
" 35 MINITS OF BLUES & SOUL " MINIT (UK) MLL 40002
A compilation of material issued here in 1968 by Liberty on their Minit subsiduary - one of just a few Minit release over here. On this set there's 14 varied tracks with standouts being Homer Banks "Hooked by love", Jimmy Holiday's "The beauty of a girl in love", Vernon Greene's "Look at me", and of course, The O'jays evergreen "Working on your case". There's a Bobby Womack track "Trust me", instrumentals from Gene Dozier, and two bluesy items from Jimmy McCracklin. Purists often decry compilations but it's surprising what gems have been issued on compilations over the years, and you can never complain about the quality of tracks - usually they provide excellent value for money, which brings me back where I came in.
