I think the Fogerty tracks, especially Sweet Hitch-Hiker, are the stand outs, but overall the record falls short of the rest of Creedence's catalogue, Golden Lady - Lee Towers - Golden Lady (Vinyl). This album was Tony's first Warner LP and is well up to the standard of his Monument recordings. The 'Swamp Fox' is a master of understated blues with deep lyrics and mysterious undercurrents. Wish he would visit the UK more often.
Photo shows his second single not the Mary Wells song. He released an LP on Atco which included a track called Home To Stay, which is surely one of the eeriest songs ever written - about a soldier coming home and apparently singing from his coffin! Excellent song though.
Just how strange a fish he was, neither I nor the general public knew. The revelations of sex with under age girls have been shocking, and the rubbishing of his reputation has been total, with his name being removed from a road named after him in Scarborough and his gravestone being taken away no doubt to stop it being defaced.
His charity efforts, which were considerable, have been forgotten in this avalanche of oppobrium. Of course, it's Golden Lady - Lee Towers - Golden Lady (Vinyl) a bit pointless, as it's far too late to have the accusations challenged in court. But it's a reminder of just how fleeting fame can be. Now he is not famous - just imfamous. How about that then Jimmy. Here are another ten Vinyl Obscurities released on the red Atlantic label in the UK between and Most of them are one off UK releases by artists who are not particularly well known, although there are a couple by big soul names included.
Mary was one of Motown's top songstresses and therefore hardly obscure with some wonderful soul releases in the sixties. After a less successful spell with 20th Century, Mary recorded some tracks for Atco, including this one with her by then husband Cecil Womack misspelt on the label.
Can't find this track on Youtube so here's a fairly similar version by Vilma Valera. Percy, brother of Spencer Wiggins, had just one 45 released in the UK. Percy sang in the church for many years but appeared at the Ponderosa Stomp in and, memorably, with brother Spencer, at Porretta in and Golden Lady - Lee Towers - Golden Lady (Vinyl) of these excellent soul sides are worth a listen.
Harvey is another soul man who had just one 45 released in the UK in the 60s and another who has appeared at Porretta in the last few years. He hailed from Milwaukee and was influenced by James Brown and Wilson Pickett and he is best probably best known for being the co-writer of Johnnie Taylor's Disco Lady. This double sider was recorded for the Magic Touch label in the US. By way of a contrast, this is by a UK band from Southampton who recorded half a dozen collectable freakbeat singles in the sixties on Immediate, Polydor and Atlantic, of which this is the least valuable.
This one was produced by Graham Dee, who was involved with many UK Golden Lady - Lee Towers - Golden Lady (Vinyl) in the 60s. This is another UK psych group who had Golden Lady - Lee Towers - Golden Lady (Vinyl) two singles released under that name. Back to soul now, and this is a sizzling deep soul track by a white singer who began her recording career with three country singles under the name of Jeanie Johnson.
She recorded backing tracks at Chips Moman's American studio and backed various artists including Elvis. Another one off UK release by a soul singer who calls himself the Alabama Love Man and stills performs today. I saw him at the Ponderosa Stomp a few years back and he was excellent. Produced by Spooner Oldham in Muscle Shoals, this is a good double sider. Here is the B side. As the label says, this was recorded at American Studios in Memphis. I've included this final record for John Jolliffe, who drew it to my attention.
I'm not sure if I had ever flipped the record over to listen to this one. The official A side is his version of the Archies tune. In the UK, Atlantic records were released for a while on Columbia and then famously on London, before getting its own black label in For part one of my Vinyl Obscurities feature on the red Atlantic label, I've chosen ten records by some of the lesser known artists released in and early '67, including a couple which fall under the heading of rock, rather than soul.
