    MAXINE BROWN

    The Best Of The Wand Years

    [engl] 
    A stylish vinyl collection of Maxine’s finest Wand recordings, including a trio of 60s soul stompers discovered in the tape vaults in the 80s. Maxine Brown has been popular in the black music world since 1960. ‘All In My Mind’, her hit debut, is cited as one of the first soul records but it was not until she moved to the Wand label in 1963 that her career really took off. Maxine’s golden period included her signature hit ‘Oh No, Not My Baby’ and beautiful ballads such as ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’ and ‘Gotta Find A Way’. These are loved in the UK but it was her less familiar, uptempo Wand releases that turned her from an admired artist to a soul goddess on the Northern Soul scene. The hard-to-find ‘One In A Million’ and ‘Let Me Give You My Lovin’’ were played at rare soul dances for many years, attaining classic status on the scene, despite not selling enough to chart in the USA at the time of release. Interestingly, when her run of solo R&B hits dried up Maxine continued to reach the pop charts with ‘One Step At A Time’ and ‘If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody’, illustrating that she had picked up a sizeable white audience. By the 1980s the depth of her catalogue was being appreciated and ‘Yesterday’s Kisses’, ‘Since I Found You’, ‘Little Girl Lost’ and the Van McCoy-penned beauty ‘I Wonder What My Baby’s Doing Tonight’ all gained DJ plays.

    Masterpieces Of Modern Soul

    [engl] 
    Having been brought up as much on albums as singles, it is a natural progression for Kent to make a 12-inch version of our “Masterpieces Of Modern Soul” CD series. The modern soul fan is used to wielding vinyl 12-inchers and our latest Kent LP is aimed squarely at them. Act 1’s fantastic ‘It’s The Same Old Story’, one of the most melodious songs of the era, is lifted from their Spring album. The same label also gives us Millie Jackson’s raunchy ‘If That Don’t Turn You On’ from her “For Men Only” LP, suitably edited for DJs’ convenience. The Mayberry Movement were on sister label Event and we have included their smooth and addictive ‘Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right’, a turn of the century tape discovery. On the pricey side, we feature Eddie Billups’ anthem ‘Shake Off That Dream’ – all together now, sing along. Scarce is more the word for Gail Anderson’s Doré release ‘Just A Little Ugly’, which is anything but, while stable-mates the Natural Resources have the recently discovered tape find ‘If There Were No You’, which would have graced the Blackpool Mecca if it had been known about a few decades earlier. We dip our toes into 1980s water with tracks from seminal Detroit producer Dave Hamilton, whose later recordings are proving to be as highly admired as his work from the golden era of 60s soul.
