Junior McCants – She Wrote It, I Read It b/w Johnny Soul – Fall In These Arms Of Mine – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

‘She Wrote It, I Read It’ by Junior McCants only exists on a handful (or less!) of King demos on the flip of his Northern Soul dancer ‘Try Me For Your New Love’. The highly talented singer wails his heart out on a magnificent Deep Soul ballad written and produced by his mentor Charles Spurling. ‘Fall In These Arms Of Mine’ by Johnny Soul on the flip is from the same stable but was recorded in the southern USA with Macon, Georgia-based producer Bobby Smith. It is very influenced by another son of Macon, Otis Redding – in the best possible way.

Little Johnny Hamilton – Apartment #9 b/w Cry Like A Baby – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

Little Johnny Hamilton was a 60s Los Angeles soul singer whose records are all hard to find, despite their quality. The searing deep soul slowy ‘Apartment # 9’ is a million miles from the funk of ‘The Git Down’, recorded at the same session and issued on the Watts Way label in 1967 as a two-part single. Hamilton wails away his pain on a sparse number abetted by some righteous girl backing singers.

Ace’s access to the Stax vaults in the 90s led to some historic music being heard by Soul fans for the first time, tracks by Otis Redding, Carla Thomas and William Bell hit the headlines but many of the company’s lesser-known artists also demonstrated what talent they had on previously unissued gems, these 2 originally unreleased tunes are breathtakingly beautiful Soul records that anyone with an interest in Deep Soul music will appreciate

James Carr – These Arms Of Mine b/w Let’s Face Facts – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

Many people’s favourite Soul singer James Carr sings two classic Southern Soul songs that were discovered among Goldwax’s tapes some years back and now appear on a single for the first time. A-side is an Otis Redding classic, admired and recorded by many but matched only by Carr’s performance, the flipside, another superb Deep Soul song well suited to his style, was first recorded by the Masqueraders and released on Wand

Eddie & Ernie – A Man To Love A Woman b/w You Make My Life A Sunny Day – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

Original label-founder Dave Godin’s ultimate Deep Soul act, both tracks were recorded in the late 60s but first came out on Kent’s Eddie & Ernie CD in 2002, it is a tribute to their excellent quality that they released them on this vinyl series now

Rozetta Johnson – I’ve Come Too Far With You b/w Who You Gonna Love (Your Woman Or Your Wife) – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

Rozetta Johnson’s name is synonymous with the highest quality Southern Soul, often in conjunction with Sam Dees, who wrote these two sides. ‘I’ve Come Too Far With You’ was a previously unreleased Clintone master until Kent issued it on CD in 1998. The flip ‘Who Are You Gonna Love (Your Woman Or Your Wife)’ is constantly in demand and was one of Dave Godin’s all-time favourite recordings

Eddie Parker – But If You Must Go b/w Debbie Taylor & The Hesitations – All That I Have – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

Only the very best soul ballads make it onto our reactivated Deep Soul label and there can be no argument that Eddie Parker’s ‘But If You Must Go’ deserves its first UK release. The US MAM-Miko label original sells for an astonishing $1500, even though it’s a five-minute slowy. Debbie Taylor’s ‘All That I Have’, with backing vocals by the Hesitations, is the first vinyl outing for this George Kerr and Larry Saunders beauty

Little Ann – Deep Shadows b/w The Turn Arounds – Stay Away – Kent Deep Soul 7″
[audio mp3=""][/audio] [audio mp3=""][/audio]

The second Deep Soul release is Little Ann’s Dave Hamilton-produced ‘Deep Shadows’. Recorded in Detroit in 1967, the track has grown steadily in the Rare Soul public’s esteem ever since its CD debut in 1998; it has even been covered by new bands and has featured in a very atmospheric Jordan trainers ad. On the B-side is the superb ballad ‘Stay Away’ by Los Angeles vocal group the Turn Arounds. Cut in Atlanta in 1966, it has the feel of a classic Chess recording, which is no doubt exactly what the group was trying to achieve
