    Various Artists "The Soul Of The Memphis Boys" (Ace UK) 4/24/2020

    Description
    The long-awaited follow-up volume to the successful “Memphis Boys: The Story of American Studios” (CDCHD 1330) showcasing the brilliant accompaniments of this top session group, directed by Chips Moman.

    This new release focuses primarily on the studio’s sublime southern soul output by headline stars and lesser knowns, primarily from quality labels such as Atlantic-Atco, Bell-Amy-Mala and John R’s Sound Stage 7 in the years 1967-72. The vast majority of tracks are making their Ace CD debut.

    Soulful tracks by Jerry Lee Lewis, Dusty Springfield, the Box Tops and Elvis Presley sit easily here, along with a rare cut by Darlene Love and the Blossoms.

    Features the studio group’s extraordinary guitarist Reggie Young, who has two well-received Ace CDs to his name: “Forever Young” (CDCHD 1500) and “Reggie Young: Session Guitar Star” (CDCHD 1537).

    Compiled by experts John Broven and Red Kelly (known as the Soul Detective), who has written a detailed note to go with an introduction from Memphis Boys keyboardist Bobby Wood. A beautifully illustrated booklet completes the package.

    Hope they do "keep 'em coming" Dave. And on that note, Crimson UK also has a Gold collection planned for Neil Sedaka in July (I didn't post it on this forum since it's not soul music).

    A Neil collection would sound interesting although I know a lot of people find him a little on the corny side. Of course since I have the same reaction every time one of these collections is released, the most exciting part of your post is the word "July!"

    Do you have any insight as to what other projects might be in the works by that label?

    I don't have any insight on forthcoming projects from the Crimson label. I just keep my eye on the various websites that announce upcoming release dates on Rock & Soul Music reissues. And like you, I hope they "Keep 'Em Coming".
