Nobody Wins: Stax Southern Soul 1968-1975. Ace, Kent CDKEND 370. CD.

Various Artists-Nobody Wins - Stax Southern Soul 1968-19 (US IMPORT) CD NEW. Artist: Various Artists.

the mgs. from 1968 onwards the label widened its reach and, although records were still cut in their own studio, the label was also using studios in other parts of the city and the south. nobody wins' follows these developments through a mixture of rare gems, previously unreleased tracks and a sprinkling of classics. here are 22 tracks that demonstrate that stax remained at the top of the southern soul pile until it shut up shop in 1975. Various - Nobody Wins: Stax Southern Soul 1968-1975.

The Ace Records family has reissued numerous collector-oriented compilations from the Stax vaults over the years, and this 2012 anthology was intended as the first of a planned series on its Kent subsidiary focusing on Stax tracks from the late ’60s and early ’70s. The 21 tracks all focus on Stax recordings that fall into the Southern deep soul category - not a problem as such soul abounded on the label, though these might be more deep soul-oriented than the typical Stax reissue. And while some of the artists (Johnnie Taylor, Jimmy Hughes, William Bell, Inez Foxx, Eddie Floyd, Mable John, Little Milton) at various points had substantial hits (though not always for Stax), they’re outweighed by acts that will largely be recognized only by those that study the fine print of Stax discographies.

07 Sir Mack Rice - Nobody Wins Til The Game Is Over. 17 Johnnie Taylor - Will You Love Me Forever. 04 The Soul Children - Move Over. 10 Inez Foxx - Crossing Over The Bridge. 14 Ollie & The Nightingales - You're Leaving M. p3. 01 Johnny Daye - Stay Baby Stay. 08 Freddie Waters - Groovin' On My Baby's Love. 15 Sylvia & The Blue Jays - The Fault Is Not In M. 18 Calvin Scott - I Never Found A Girl To Love Me Like You D.

Nobody Wins follows these developments through a mixture of rare gems, previously unreleased tracks and a sprinkling of classics. Of the previously unreleased numbers, the earliest is the Charmels’ ‘I’ve Done It Again’ from what was probably the under-recorded vocal group’s last Stax session. out individual tracks, this is an album for listening to all the way through, the quality as high on the rare tracks as on the more familiar. as great an introduction to southern soul as you could possibly wish for. Tracklist. STAY BABY STAY - Johnny Daye. I'VE DONE IT AGAIN - The Charmels. LOVE CHANGES - Charlene & The Soul Seranaders. MOVE OVER - The Soul Children. HOLD ON THIS TIME - Chuck Brooks. Where was he? - Jimmy Lewis.

Having been a Southern Soul fan for many years, I've acquired comprehensive collections of Aretha, Sam & Dave, Otis Redding, Candi Staton, Clarence Carter, Al Green, Ann Peebles, and others. There are only a few representations of these artists on here- which means it can by no means claim to be comprehensive. If like me, you believe R&B is emphatically NOT Soul and that Soul died somewhere around 1975, you will find gem after gem to love here- I can't find a clunker on it. The obscure artists here are unfairly neglected and will send you hunting down more by them. I bought this as well as the Fame Studio album. This 3 cd set is full of music to die for. From Etta James with I'd Rather Go Blind to Clarence Carter with Slip Away or Al Green with Tired of Being Alone these 3 cd's are full of excellent soul music form days long ago, when I was young.

The set is a definitive portrait of gritty, deep Southern soul. For any serious soul or rock collector, it's an essential set, since Stax-Volt was not only a musically revolutionary label, its roster was deep with talent, which means much of the music on this collection is first-rate. 11 of these singles charted on Billboard.

Format: CD. In stock. Nobody Wins - Stax Southern Soul 1968-75 quantity. Format: CD. Grade: New (About gradings). Interesting compilation featuring some of the lesser known Southern Soul tracks to come out on Stax between 1968-75. The labels big hitters like Johnnie Taylor ‘Will You Love Me Tomorrow’, William Bell ‘Lovin On Borrowed Time’, Soul Children ‘Move On’ and Eddie Floyd ‘Stealing Love’ are joined by rare singles from Mack Rice, Freddie Walters and Jimmy Hughes
