Does anyone know if Verdelle Smith (Capitol Records) recorded enough material for a complete album? Her "Tar and Cement" and "In My Room" were mild hits in the Sixties. I know "Tar" has been on a few anthologies, but nothing else has appeared anywhere by her. I actually like "In My Room" better, and I am surprised that it hasn't been placed on a Northern Soul compilation yet.

Yes, she did. The album is:

"(Alone) in My Room)" on Capitol ST 2476.

I'll try and dig it out to give the track details.

Thanks, David. I wasn't collecting many LPs when it came out -- was it 1966?-- which is probably why I wasn't aware of it. I was mostly into singles then. How times have changed! Hopefully, the masters are still in Capitol's would be nice to see a CD reissue. (I know Capitol isn't big on catalog stuff, but maybe someone else is listening). Just being hopeful....

Verdelle had at least two other singles released on Capitol (making 4=8 songs), possibly 5 in total. "If You Can't Say Anything Nice (Don't Say Nothin' At All)", on Capitol 5731, (the very best song written by Paul Vance & Lee Pockriss), was a great Bachrach-David soundalike.
