    Eccentric Soul: The Way Out Label

    Fueled by the financial drippings of number runners
    and boosted by Hall-of-Fame running back Jim Brown,
    Cleveland, Ohio's Way Out Records offered asylum for a
    rising crop of rogue soul men, rust-belt vocal ensembles,
    and trial-by-fire producers. Helmed by a friendly
    consortium of hustlers, police officers, and gridiron
    giants, pet project beget obsession as Motown arrangers,
    gospel choirs, and the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra
    were all beckoned to the wrong side of the tracks to mint
    masterpieces for the Sensations, Volcanic Eruption, the
    Exceptional Three, and Bobby Wade, all beneath the
    mindful gaze of a wall-mounted shotgun. Reaching their
    peak in the late '60s, Eccentric Soul: The Way Out Label
    gathers the brightest moments from the quirky operation's
    eleven year bid.


    The 3LP configuration boasts a double gatefold with
    beautiful photos and ephemera from the label's low-flying
    promotional department. For fans of group harmony,
    sweet soul, orchestral feats and lo-fi oddities, The Way Out
    Label is an excellent addition to our already popular and
    powerful Eccentric Soul series.

    Eccentric Soul: The Young Disciples

    Though there are currently dozens of small labels dedicated to unearthing and reissuing forgotten soul recordings from the `60s and `70s, few of them can compete with Chicago's Numero label, whose ECCENTRIC SOUL releases serve not just as fine collections of rare soul, but as miniature history lessons that throw light on forgotten corners of the American experience. Where previous ECCENTRIC SOUL volumes have documented the vibrant independent soul scenes that flourished in Miami, Chicago, and Detroit, THE YOUNG DISCIPLES album collects the output of St Louis' Merry and Gateway labels. The Young Disciples band accompanies talented and heretofore unknown young singers like LaVel Moore and Dauphin Jackson on a series of sides ranging from hard driving southern funk to impassioned torch songs.

    Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label

    In 1969, after three years as Soul Sister #1 to James Brown's touring entourage, Marva Whitney came home to Kansas City, putting Ellis Taylor's Forte label back at full fighting strength. She'd calmed aching crowds the day after MLK's death, and she'd lived the life, despite its rigors-to pour out her pain and exuberance on Forte sides including "I've Lived The Life" and "Daddy Don't Know About Sugar Bear," which made national rounds in 1972.


    By then, Forte had already done more than deliver Marvelous Marva to market. Taylor worked overtime at KPRS to bring the world The Rayons, who'd stroll their girl group harmonies past Chicago's RCA studios on "Baby Be Good." In '68, The Four Darlings sauntered in with smoky-voiced soul operatics on the demanding "Give Me Love." Progressing in the middle '70s, Everyday People got "Super Black" on Forte's pine-green label. Still powering forward some 13 years on, Forte redawned with the 1980s, essaying disco funk with Sharon Revoal's "Reaching for Our Star."


    Numero 047 Eccentric Soul: The Forte Label charts Kansas City yeoman's work, the Carpets and the Derbys, dapper clothiers mysteriously murdered, and marriages made and broken. In 28 LP tracks, plus a trove of promo headshots and every-hued label scans
    detailing all iterations of Forte's logo in print, this 16th Eccentric Soul sojourn hands over vivid floor shakers and lost dance craze records alike-though what moves "The Hen" required remains anyone's guess.

    Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg

    Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg chronicles Phoenix, Arizona's off- Funky Broadway scene that happened while Dyke and his Blazers were setting national charts on fire in the late '60s/early '70s. Covering Tejano psych, flute funk, both horny soul and horny kid soul, cackling R&B, deep ballads, and fist-fight doowop, Lenaburg channeled that wrong side of the desert sound to a dozen 45s for the Mighty, Darlene, Homogenized Sound, Ramco and Out of Sight imprints.



    Although listing these totally obscure groups is an exercise in futility, Numero has anyway; Michael Liggins, the Super Souls, We The People, Ronnie Whitehead, Small Paul, the Soulsations, Lon Rogers, the Soul Blenders, Sheila Jack, Clarence Townes and the Newlyweds.



    Five years since Numero's initial CD release, Eccentric Soul: Mighty Mike Lenaburg finally makes it back to its intended format as a deluxe double LP. This 180g Loaded To The Gills edition features 10 bonus tracks, scores of new photographs and new liner notes, all housed in a heavy gatefold jacket.

    1. Too Good To Be True - Lon Rogers & The Soul Blenders
    2. Standing On The Corner - Michael Liggins
    3. Loaded To The Gills - Michael Liggins & The Super Souls
    4. I've Got To Have You - Sheila Jack
    5. Black And Beautiful - Michael Liggins
    6. Out Of Breath - Ronnie Whitehead

    Eccentric Soul: Capital City Soul

    Fifty records later, The Numero Group returns to its
    eccentric roots, Ohio's Capitol City and the sonorous
    Shangri-La carved out by the indefatigable Bill Moss.
    Filling in, around, and on top of our original The
    Capsoul Label collection, Capitol City Soul is a trove
    of completely unissued and underissued treasures from
    Moss and company. A decade in the making, this is the
    set of soul discoveries that no one but The Numero
    Group could achieve. Features otherwise unreleased
    songs from the Kool Blues, the Four Mints, Jupiter's
    Release, and Love Maximum, alongside rare sides
    by Dean Francis & the Soul Rockers, the Chandlers,
    Associated Press, the Soul Partners, and the Vondors.
    From the vaults under the basements under the garages
    of one of the nation's most unsung music scenes.


    This double LP set is ensconced in a thick tip-on
    gatefold jacket splashed with a colorful spread of vivid
    archival imagery accumulated over a decade of research
    into the Columbus, Ohio culture. The liner notes
    serve as an in-depth history of Columbus soul music,
    linking The Capsoul Label with The Prix Label and
    Norman Whiteside's Wee project (recently sampled by
    Kanye West). A strong addition to the already
    epic Eccentric Soul series from The Numero Group.

    I Want To Live High

    A debut album that never was, Rokk's I Want To Live High is that rare misshapen pearl clenched tightly between the shells of a music industry shucked long ago. Too soulful for its disco-era release date, the sextet's 1976 Tollie-issued 45 "Patience" (as featured in Eccentric Soul: Omnibus) tracked well in Rokk's hometown of Los Angeles, but was withdrawn before patience ran out with the spring rains of 1977. Tracked simultaneously was this entire shelved album full of Rokk's mid-tempo grooves, flute-lead funk, sultry female backing vocals, slap bass, chorus-drenched guitars, and lyrics about getting baked and eating baked apple pie. Jazzy, with plentiful slices of Broadway, Innervisions, and Rokk's own stoned brand of hornrock, had I Want To Live High ever gotten so high as actual record store shelves circa late 1977, it would've surely sobered up to the commercial onslaught of saturday night disco juggernauts and the pummeling forces of earth, wind, and fire.
    1. Patience
    2. You've Neen too Long
    3. I Want To Live High
    4. It Better Git Better

    Boddie Recording Company: Cleveland, OH (Box Set)

    From 1958 to 1993, Thomas and Louise Boddies industrious Boddie Recording Company issued nearly 300 albums and 45s, recorded 10,000 hours of tape, and remained in operation longer than any other studio, pressing plant, or label group in the history of Cleveland. Long forgotten even by the standards of the chronically overlooked northeastern Ohio music scene, Boddie was a fusion of its owners engineering genius and his limited economic means; its DIY recording studio housed in a humble barn, churned night and day to capture the sounds emanating from Clevelands east side neighborhoods.


    The 65 tracks on this 5LP box set represent the best of the Boddies in-house Soul Kitchen, Luau, and Bounty labels, which released an unspoiled treasure trove of kitchen-sink eccentric soul, fuzzbox funk, shoestring doo-wop, and haunted, eerily hook-laden spirituals. Enclosed inside is a mountain of office-styled ephemera: two massive booklets brimming with detail on the Boddies and their artists; extensive notes and scores of unpublished photos; a complete detailed discography folio; reproduced fliers; and a Boddie greeting card, all rendered with the handcrafted charm that was the Boddie hallmark. Call it a self-contained record industry crammed into one box.

    Cuffed, Collared And Tagged

    One of the great characters in rock and soul music is Jerry Williams, better known as the eccentric, idiosyncratic, and always entertaining Swamp Dogg (no relation to Snoop Doggy Dogg). A Virginia native, Williams invented his own legend by claiming that he had little proper schooling, only to wake up one day and find himself a musical genius (his words). Actually, Williams is very talented, and an early association with Jerry Wexler and Phil Walden led to him working for a number of years as a producer, engineer, and occasional songwriter with Atlantic in the '60s. At decade's end, however, he decided that the time was right to unleash Swamp Dogg's singular view of the world on an unsuspecting public.


    Although he spent years working in the industry, Dogg was simply not the standard-issue soul type. And that was good. Dogg continued to make records, albeit infrequently, after 1969, some good, a few great, and most all extremely difficult to find. With contemporary soul sounding increasingly mannered and sterile, Dogg's yelling, screaming, and general craziness is missed. Thankfully, he hasn't disappeared for good, although he only makes records when he feels like it. It would be wise to not count him out; just when you think this Dogg is down and out, he sneaks up and bites you. Originally released in 1972, Cuffed, Collared And Tagged is making a vinyl comeback via Fat Possum.

    Maggot Brain

    Ranked 486/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Maggot Brain, released in 1971, is Funkadelic's all-out masterpiece. Absolutely no one working in soul and funk at the time had the scope, vision and, let's be honest, sheer lunacy to pull off the kind of record that George Clinton and his collaborators have made here. Eccentric funk jams are bookended with tracks like Maggot Brain and Wars Of Armageddon, which are some of the heaviest tracks ever committed to tape. The title track and album opener are nothing short of mind-blowing. An essential classic and the deepest album to come out of the Parliament-Funkadelic canon.

    Slurrup

    Hayes has been making critically acclaimed pop records since 1994, when he released the single "Three-Quarters Blind Eyes" b/w "Found a Little Baby". Considered by many to be a pop classic, it helped to establish him as a songwriter. In 1998, he released More You Becomes You, a spare, stripped-down collection of his intimate tunes. In 2002, he released Fed, a lush, orchestral album. 2009's Bright Penny, an ode to pop music, was released under the name Liam Hayes and Plush.


    Although he emerged from the Chicago indie-rock scene, Hayes is often compared with artists such as Jimmy Webb, Brian Wilson, Laura Nyro, Burt Bacharach and Harry Nilsson. Like some of the best folk-pop or soft soul from the 1960's of 1970's there is a timeless quality to his music.


    Hayes is not the kind of artist who spends all day interacting on social media. He doesn't reveal a lot in interviews. He's not trying to be cagey or eccentric or elusive, he would just rather keep the focus on his songs. And let's face it, mystique is underrated in this era of over-sharing. Described by Uncut as 'one of the most charismatic and eccentric cult pop craftsmen of the past 20 years', Hayes has a newly completed album right around the corner, to be released worldwide on Fat Possum. While comparably retro, Hayes' newly completed "Slurrup" is leaner and meaner than anything he's done all millennium.

    Funkadelic

    The 1970 self titled debut from Detroit's nastiest, most shredding funk-rock group. Arising from the ashes of George Clinton's Plainfield, New Jersey-led R&B group, The Parliments, Funkadelic formed in the late '60s and, in addition to Clinton, included the blazing guitar of Eddie Hazel, organist Mickey Atkins, rhythm guitarist Tawl Ross and drummer Tiki Fulwood. Though firmly rooted in funk and soul, Funkadelic incorporated a dark psychedelic element, influenced by Hendrix and Sly Stone, to create a sound that was unparalleled at the time and since. Sampled by everyone from DJ Shadow to Ice Cube, De La Soul and the Beastie Boys, Funkadelic still sounds fresh today and is the first solid example of George Clinton's eccentric genius.

    I Can't Stand The Rain

    This wonderful album, originally released in 1974 on the Memphis-based Hi Records label, deserved a wider audience than it ended up getting at the time. It played to Ann Peebles' greatest strength, her poised and sultry voice, and surrounded by the sparse, easy funkiness of the trademark Hi rhythm section and producer Willie Michell's perfect use of horns and strings, she sings like a resilient but scorned angel on this impressive set of songs about the darker side of love.


    Her best song is here, the eccentric but brilliant I Can't Stand the Rain, along with a marvelous version of Joe Simon's (You Keep Me) Hangin' On, and perfect readings of a pair of Earle Randle songs in If We Can't Trust Each Other and I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down. Peebles sings her heart out, and with those bright-sounding Hi grooves behind her, it all comes together to make a classic album of dark, bouncy and beautiful Southern soul.

    Safety Zone

    During the early '70s, Womack was one of the most prolific and talented artists. With albums like Communication and Lookin' For a Love Again, Womack quickly became one of the most prolific and talented singers in R&B/pop. ... Safety Zone finds Womack getting a sonic overhaul whether he needed it or not. Produced by David Rubinson who was behind the boards for everyone from the Pointer Sisters to Herbie Hancock, it creates a slick, up to the minute style that may be too perfect for Womack's core fans. The album's first track, Everything's Going to Be Alright, meanders and sets the standard for this album's pursuit of style over substance. The two covers, Something You Got and I Wish It Would It Rain, both feature eccentric arrangements but Womack's vocals seem facile around the edges. As an album like the Facts of Life scored on his honesty throughout, Safety Zone only has two instances that come within striking distance. Trust in Me, a self-written gem first recorded by his friend Janis Joplin, has Womack's gritty and wry vocal finally breaking free from the Rubinson's glossy production and arranging style. Daylight is one of Womack's best tracks. As Womack sings The real set don't get started/'Til every one else is in, you hear him conflicted, but not bothered enough to stop. For the track, Rubinson's offhanded grace made the song even stronger.

    High Fidelity (Awaiting Repress)

    Original soundtrack to the film High Fidelity (15th Anniversary).



    Gen X rock buffs can revel in nostalgia with the High Fidelity soundtrack. The film centers on the romantic escapades of record-store owner and ex-club DJ Rob Gordon (John Cusack) and his full-time obsession with music. Since High Fidelity has as much to do with vinyl addiction as it does with the difficulties of love, great care has been taken with its selection of tracks, a solidly eccentric collection of heartache-heavy pop gems ranging from obscure '60s bands and groundbreaking artists like the Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan, to Stevie Wonder and Stereolab. As in the film, there's a method to the compilers' elitist rock-geek madness. Even co-star Jack Black's schlocky blue-eyed cover of Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On doesn't seem out of place.



    The inspired screeches of acid-fried '60s singer-songwriter Roky Erickson's You're Gonna Miss Me set the pace for the musing, hangdog tone of the album. Besides the joyous licks of the Kinks' Everybody's Gonna Be Happy and Royal Trux's hybrid of hip-hip, techno, and aggressive rock on Inside Game, the bulk of the set is composed of moody folk-rock tunes like Dylan's exquisite Most of the Time and the Velvets' Oh! Sweet Nuthin. Other noteworthy tracks include Love's Always See Your Face, the Beta Band's Dry the Rain, Elvis Costello's wistful Shipbuilding, the stinging irony of Smog's Cold Blooded Old Times, and Stevie Wonder's soulful optimism on I Believe (When I Fall in Love It Will Be Forever). It's a fine, complementary batch of tunes that not only enhances the film's mood but is integral to its theme, and, as High Fidelity's Rob Gordon would agree, it'll go down as one of the top five soundtracks [originally] released in 2000. - Derrick Mathis (AllMusic)

    Emergency Ward (Speakers Corner)

    We can thank our lucky stars that Nina Simone was well aware of her musical environment and enjoyed experimenting with it, despite her notorious eccentric personality. This was the only reason that so much basic repertoire, traditional blues numbers, black work songs and favourite white show melodies - all filled with a deep soul feeling - reached her fans. Emergency Ward! is no exception. First there is the explosive medley, recorded live, of George Harrison's My Sweet Lord and David Nelson's Today Is A Killer. Accompanied by a small combo and a gospel choir, Nina Simone ignites an 18-minute blazing bonfire which loses none of its spiritual fire for even a second.



    In contrast to the gentle Poppies, extravagantly produced with strings, woodwinds and chorus, is the questioning Isn't It A Pity, arranged for piano. Here, simple, throbbing harmonies are occasionally allowed to swell into clouds of chords, giving Nina Simone the opportunity to show off her highly diversified vocal timbre which, as so often, fades away into nothing like an unanswered question. This is an exceptional album filled with a wealth of feeling and one which will leave no one untouched.



    Musicians:



    • Nina Simone (piano, vocal)

    • Sam Waymon (vocal)

    • Orchestra




    Recording: November 1971 at Fort Dix and February 1972 at RCA Victor's Studio A,
    New York City, by Ed Begley

    Production: Nina Simone, Andrew Stroud and Weldon J. Irvine Jr.





    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.
