• james carr The Best of (LP, £13.50)

    To complement the “Best Of James Carr” CD we also have an abridged – and limited edition - album version, to satisfy the needs of vinyl-aholics everywhere.  Carr had two original album releases in the 1970s but never a “Greatest Hits” collection – so this album and its CD counterpart, timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Carr’s best-known and best-loved 45 ‘Dark End Of The Street’, is both long overdue and right on time.  Its 14 selections include all of Carr’s US R&B and Pop hits from ‘You’ve Got My Mind Messed Up’ through to his version of the Bee Gees’ ‘To Love Somebody’, a pair of fan favourites from his original UK albums and several great tracks that have never been released on vinyl in the UK before.  As popular with his fans now as he ever was, this collection will keep long-time admirers happy and bring many new ones into the James Carr fan club.  TRACKLIST: SIDE ONE 1. THE DARK END OF THE STREET 2. LOVE ATTACK 3. FREEDOM TRAIN 4. POURING WATER ON A DROWNING MAN 5. A LUCKY LOSER 6. YOU HURT SO GOOD 7. LET'S FACE FACTS / SIDE TWO 1. YOU’VE GOT MY MIND MESSED UP 2.
