VARIOUS ARTISTS Collectables 5123 Best Of Sue Records ● CD $11.98
18 track collection including 3 rough & raunchy early sides by Ike & Tina Turner, major sellers like Mockingbird by Charlie & Inez Foxx, The Time by Baby Washington, She Blew A Good Thing by The Poets, plus hits by Bobby Hendricks, The Soul Sisters, Barbara George, Jimmy McGriff & Wilbert Harrison. Too bad Collectables lacked the foresight to reissue some of the more obscure singles that have never reappeared in any shape or form. No sleeve notes. Good clean sound. (OLN)

VARIOUS ARTISTS Collectables 5209 Harlem Rock N' Blues Vol. 2 ● CD $11.98
Since Bobby Robinson founded Red Robin Records in 1951, his production and promotion of great solid blues, vocal, and instrumental R&B have remained virtually unsurpassed to this day. Volume 2 embraces the talents of King Curtis, "Wild" Jimmy Spruill, Champion Jack Dupree, Red Prysock, Buster Brown, Hal Paige and The Whalers, Noble Watts and June Bateman.
